Now we have entered the "off season" I hope to become a little more creative around here, launch and continue some of my fun projects.
Speaking of projects.... Last week I started working on several new uniform templates. I have found, the more time I spent working with photoshop, the better I become at creating quality templates. This one is a little different from my previous models. By design is a little more simple. Rather than struggle with creating a "life like" look - I took a more abstract approach. The design and concept was inspired and lifted directly from a 1979 Chicago Cubs scorecard cover. I am no creative artist, but I can copy with the best of them. You can see I modified the location or the throwing arm and glove to give better view of the front of the uniform.
I read this morning on The Fleer Sticker Project the news that the Baltimore Orioles have decided to bring back the Smiling Cartoon Bird on their hats next season. I think that is wonderful. In honor of this news, I decided to show off my new template featuring the all-orange uniforms the Orioles wore on occasion during the 1971 season.
Let me know if you want a copy of the template PSD file. I am more than happy to share.
