Slap Shot!

This is something different. A client of mine is the sponsor and a player on a hockey team. They are getting new jerseys and he asked if I would take a stab at the new team logo. I thought it would be fun so I agreed to give it a shot. Above are two of the designs I came up with. I tried to stay away from what I saw of other logos. Since most of what I have seen make the mascot look cuddly, I went with a more aggressive and angular look. Hornets are not cute and I'm pretty sure you don't want to cuddle with one. Mostly because they bring their friends. The design on the left is the one we will be developing. These were done in my sketchbook, scanned and tweaked in Photoshop.
