Pittsburgh Mash-Up

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!
