Wednesday: Viva Las Vegas?

Another Wednesday here at HJC, but it isn't an ordinary Wednesday. It's the day before I expect the Islanders to get blown out in their first visit to Vegas. I have a bunch of friends there and they will surely have fun in Vegas, but with how the Islanders play lately, combined with the Vegas flu that seems to be affecting the entire NHL, I don't expect this team to fare well.

COMPETITIONS: The Semiahmoo competition is rolling along today. And with the opportunity to win a copy of the jersey you designed, we are seeing almost record entries of late. Keep it up!

ENTRIES SO FAR:

Matt G:

Lucas D:

Patrick N

Adam G:

THE SEASON: I had a fun time playing in The Season last year. Take a team, make a home and road, and pit it in a weekly round robin competition against other artists, while remaining anonymous. We are doing it again and expanding the field from 18 to 24. Register now!

VOTES: We are one week away from the most important vote of the year, it's CONCEPT OF THE YEAR 2017! So before we get there, you need to choose our finalists! Don't forget about COTW as well, as both are on the side of the page.

 COTW Jan 11-18 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET) 
 Semiahmoo entries (due Friday @ noon ET) 
 Register for The Season (by Friday @ noon ET) 

ON TO THE CONCEPTS!


Ben S: Anaheim Ducks Concept


The Eggplant and Jade make a return in a classic look for the Ducks, combined with the orange they have been using of late. It's a simple white and jade pattern woven into a section of eggplant. I wouldn't necessarily go this route with a logo like that, but it does look nice. Execution note: The helmet numbers are far too low. I'd like to see gloves too if you have all the other equipment.

Lucas D: Vegas Golden Knights Concept


There's a lot of white on this jersey, unlike the Knights current home jerseys. It looks nice, especially with the grey stars in the stripe. Now I think you could've done a better job matching the stars up to the pattern on the 3D template, but that's my only complaint about that. The gold circles surrounding the red stripes create a lovely effect of lights around the border of anything, so combine that with the white stripe, the red trim and the stars within, I think you have a nice interpretation of the classic Las Vegas sign. Gloves?

Noah K: Kent State Concept


The problem this concept suffers from is inconsistent activity. What I mean by that is that if you look at the bolts on the bottom of the home and road jerseys, They contrast with the traditional striping on the arms. Speaking of which the trim on the arms is so thin that it almost gets lost on both jerseys, never mind getting lost on the white jersey with the classic "Yellow-on-white syndrome". The alternate looks like a paint-bucket job. Not a fan of the font on the main set. Not a fan of the wordmark and numbers on the front of the alternate, but this is the NCAA so I'll let it slide. Also what are you doing on those pants?

The WINNER of my Concept of the Week nomination is:

 LUCAS D 

 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS CONCEPT 


Of course I choose the Vegas concept before my team gets destroyed by them. Could it be a sacrifice in order to help my team on Thursday? Maybe something to kiss up to them asking for mercy? Well who knows? We'll all find out soon and I'll see you next week as we get ready to vote for CONCEPT OF THE YEAR 2017! See you then.
