0172: Inspired by the Shield

My job's easy today. Here's Rob Huck to tell you about his NHL All-Star uniforms:

As you can see, these All Star jerseys take their cue from the NHL logo. I used to admire the All Star jerseys back in the 1980s when the colours reflected that of the old league logo, and I would love to see that reflected again.

I was also inspired by two of the recent concepts posted on Icethetics. The first is the "sash" concept used in Colin May's recent submissions. I tweaked it a bit to turn the sash into a one-sided shoulder yoke, which happily enough also creates the illusion of a hockey stick on the shoulder. (A high-sticking minor of course, but a hockey stick nonetheless.)

Second, I challenged myself to eliminate the use of white in my concept in the manner of Brian Brideau's Boston Bees jerseys. Yes, we all know how much you love the colour black, and the silver in my jerseys seems a little bland, but I think I met this challenge. In addition, the concept could potentially incorporate any two colours quite easily if one were so inclined.
