4 or 5 years ago I attempted a NES design, but I couldn’t figure out the main logo (that post was deleted). I finally finished the design by incorporating a gun-toting ROB; when in doubt get the weapons out, I always say. Originally the back patch was a duck from Duck Hunt, but that was too weird so Repair Mario was enlisted.
UPDATE: I’m my own worst critic, so I heavily updated the above jersey. Why so much black? So BB-8 and the text DROIDS could register better. Original post as follows:
When I saw episode VII in December, I was 99.9% sure this little droid was flipping the bird with his lighter-thingy. In my theater the whole audience roared with laughter, plus the scene totally called for it — BB-8 was coerced into doing something he didn’t want to do.
Alas, Disney has made it official: the droid was merely returning a thumbs-up. Well, in my mind BB-8 will always be the badass robot who’s not taking any of your crap, mister.
Not available for now, this design will be. Cloudy the future is. Read the rest of this entry
I posted a Dinobots hockey jersey on the other blog 3 or 4 years ago, I didn’t migrate it over here because I lost the files. Anyways, here’s a Jurassic Park (Jeep) mashup, with a couple of unused Ingen-style logos to boot.
This one was designed to be offered, hence the lack of Autobot logos. You can sign-up for it here.
I made an Evangelion design in 2012 and posted it on Facebook, but I looked at it today and it hurt the eyes so I decided to make a new one. This time I decided to use my “KISS” approach (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and used the current Calgary Flames jerseys as an influence, and I think it turned out okay.
Unfortunately there isn’t much love for anime jerseys so this one probably won’t be offered (unless I’m abducted by a crazed EVA fan and forced to do so, a la Misery).
Hope you had a great holiday season! I look forward to bringing you more geeky designs this year.
Pacific Rim is easily my most anticipated film this year, and July cannot get here soon enough! For this design I enlisted Gipsy Danger, the apparent lead robot of the film. The giant bot is blue in color, is adorned with red and white stripes, and has the number 34 on each shoulder; a look that screams hockey.
I have two flavors here, a ‘Team Jaegers’ design (Jaegers being the name of the giant robots in the film), and a front crest based on Gipsy Danger’s nuclear reactor design — which is similar to Tony Stark’s arc reactor. Plenty of secondary patches to play around with here.
A few other Jaegers will probably get the design treatment, possibly the Kaiju as well (the Godzilla-like monsters that the Jaegers square off with). Even the pilot uniforms seen in the film could be emulated in hockey jersey form.
If you haven’t heard of Pacific Rim, you should check out the trailer.
No plans to make this available right now, though I really really want one.
UPDATE: Now that the film has come out I thought I’d revisit the design and make some tweaks:
Basically I made the front logo more metallic, made the word ‘JAEGERS’ smaller, and moved Gipsy Danger’s name from the back neck crest to the front.
There is a lot more interest for a Pacific Rim-inspired hockey jersey these days (compared to when I posted the design originally), but it’s difficult for me to decide whether the design should be offered. The film didn’t do very well at the box office – which I am bummed about – so popularity for the franchise could be very fleeting. Time will tell.
