Had this on the drawing board for a long time, because I struggled with the back patch. I am still not 100% happy with it, so it is a placeholder until I can think of something better.
There’s a new TV show about the Cobra Kai coming out in a few months. I am detecting some disdain for the original film (which is a classic), but I will give it a chance. Can’t be any worse than the sequels.
Just an angry dude showing off his bling, how random. Do people even say bling anymore? I’m starting to feel like Mr. Krabs saying “Coral”, if you get my drift. I still think saying bling is coral.
Anyways, if Geeky Jerseys were to offer and make this, their gold embroidery and fabric would really elevate this design.
Wayne’s World turned 25 last year (with zero fanfare apparently) and it still holds up as a funny cautionary tale about selling out to the man. I can’t remember much about the sequel…something about a concert?
I’m pretty sure he would have found a cape by now, wouldn’t you agree? Geeky Jerseys’ silver finish (which is used on Direwolves jerseys) would really complete this design, fitting for a robot of iron who fancies himself as a man of steel. The McCoppin logo was, um, scrapped because it didn’t really belong.
I’m not saying this will get made, but if it does the numbers would be metallic silver. So shiny. So chrome. Anyways, here’s a design that languished for a few years now, glad I can finally share it with you today.
Originally the back patch was a roundel design that said “I LIVE, I DIE, I LIVE AGAIN!”, but it probably wouldn’t work for embroidery so I nixed that. I don’t think the highway sign will make the cut for that same reason.
About a year ago I had a request-a-thon on Facebook that led to Wyld Stallyns winning the popular vote. I apologize that it took so long to make, I didn’t find the right inspiration until I remembered the Detroit Pistons logo from the mid 90’s to early 2000’s.
The shoulder logos are a riff on the Doctor Who ‘DW’ phone booth logo. The back patch is a nod to Death, the Grim Reaper from the sequel. The colors are definitely mid-90’s, when teal was all the rage.
