little project, and, probably my 4th or 5th DIY ever that i did for Uni Watch. the trend was creating a "sports/city mash-up". lot's of people were mashing together the actual logos, like the Baltimore orioles bird with a ravens helmet. i took a different route. i based mine of the Pittsburgh city flag:
4 things to note: the castle, the lite-blue checkerboard pattern, the 3 coins, and the crest shield
so i took Pittsburgh's beloved sports teams logos and messed around with some ideas:
after a little work, i finally came up with this logo:
added some color:
then got to work:
here are some pics of the detail:
VERY long process, everything is glued, felt, and now the logo is framed in my dining room. completely happy with the result though!
spotted a technique yesterday over at Uni Watch (here is the actual post), where you basically use freezer paper, screen print paint, and basic tools to make your own t-shirt stencils. have a look at the step-by-step instructions!
First off, it's Brian Pettit's Barrell Man:
looks amazing! here's how he did it, pulled from Celtic Mommy:
also got some tips from a page i should really get to more, Instructables
now i'm deciding on what logo to stencil!
i'm thinking something having to do with this:
what do you think? either way, should be a cool project! and always, thank you to Uni Watch and it's awesome readers/contributors for the ideas and the "how to"! stay tuned for updates...
Getting excited for Super Bowl XLV, so I've printed a Terrible Towel out for my cube-mate Grimlock. Gonna be a great game with two great teams. I've said, it's gonna be hard to hate the Packers, but I'm finding ways here and there! HERE WE GO STEELERS! HERE WE GO!
