Vintage Olympic Hockey Jersey's





Here are some desktop images of vintage olympic hockey jerseys. I was asked to do the illustrations for a poster that The Beaver was going to produce but it was cut for financial reasons. Same thing with the beer coasters we were going to put these on. Finally the idea of free online desktops was put on the table. Not quite as satisfying as a physical product to hold. But it is pretty cool to think people all over the country may have my desktop on their computer during the Winter Olympics.
The jersey's were produced in Adobe Illustrator, I then imported them into Photoshop to blend them with the background and then back into Illustrator to work with the type.

Sheeeesh!

If you are interested in the desktops you can download them from thebeaver.ca look for them under the heading More of a good thing...

Jeers to the downfall of an un-tactile, non-in-your-hand final product!

Cheers to these desktops, as they smoke mightily!

Very nice work. The 1920 jersey now adorns my work computer desktop.
