Hope for Haiti

While we're on the topic of charity today, one of the worst natural disasters in history happened on Tuesday. I can't begin to imagine the devastation and despair in Haiti right now. That being said, Icethetics is making a modest donation to the recovery efforts in the island nation. I'd encourage you to do the same if you haven't already.

I also figured that one way we can keep Haiti in the thoughts of Icethetics readers is by putting together some kind of design contest. There'd be no prize (so "contest" may be misleading). It would just be a way to bring continued awareness to the tragedy.

So if you're an Icethetics concept artist (or not), think about designing a Haitian national hockey team jersey. Obviously, the country's never fielded an actual team, so you'd have to start from scratch. It would be like the Jamaicans having a bobsled team— Wait...

Anyway, I just thought this would be something nice to do for a good reason. Send in your concepts by email and I'll add them to this post. Here's a graphic that might help you get started.
