The Dragons are back in black, which is mostly inspired by Dany’s attire this season. I’m also happy to get the dragons out of the confinement of the shield, they look better free, much like the logo from the show. Read the rest of this entry
The design should be pretty self-explanatory, so how about a rant? I don’t have overdraft protection on my chequing account, so it’s impossible for me to dip below a $0.00 balance on my own. But if the account is very low on funds, and the bank takes their monthly fee and puts the account into a negative balance (-$10.00), they’ll charge me an overdraft penalty of $30, even though they technically did the overdrafting. Seems unethical and predatory to me.
If the account is in a negative balance because of what the bank did, then that should be the end of it. The customer will pay the negative balance eventually, if only to resume banking, so the bank will be made whole for the monthly fee sooner or later. But an overdraft penalty? It just strikes me as penalty for being poor. Am I being silly about this? Let me know in the comments.
Happy Halloween! I’m freezing as I type this but I’m in a baseball mood. Could it be the storied Cubs-Indians World Series?
It’s playoff time, and is there a geekier/timely nod to the 2015 World Series than Back to the Future 2‘s depiction of a Cubs win over Miami? So I thought I’d draw up a uniform for the fictional Miami team (the Gators?), which as many of you know preceded the MLB’s expansion into Florida with the Marlins and Rays in the mid-90’s.
Just so this screams BTTF2, the front of the jersey is essentially the same as the billboard image: the Alligator mascot standing in front of the word Miami. I had to fix the right leg and ditch the painted look of the logo. MLB and World Series patches were added to mark the occasion. The Gator is wearing a blue hat, so figuring the players do too, I added blue trim to the sleeves. It’s a weird color scheme.
No plans to release this, but you can get your hands on a Pepsi Perfect soon, if you can afford it.
Another baseball design for your eyeballs, this time a BSG-themed baseball jersey. Going with an Atlanta Braves look, with a spaceship replacing the tomahawk. I think it sorta works!
Stuff inspired by NBC/Universal is forbidden, so we can’t offer anything BSG (or Jurassic Park, Last Starfighter, Stargate, etc.), sorry.
Here’s a really simple Karate Kid baseball jersey design for this lazy Saturday afternoon. It would work better as a vest style jersey to match the Cobra Kai uniform, but for now I’m running with black sleeves because reasons.
Hopefully baseball jerseys will happen soon, as I’m starting to sense pitchforks and torches nearby.
