Philadelphia Flyers Mascot Design

Philadelphia Flyers Mascot Design

Client:
Philadelphia Flyers

Description:
The Philadelphia Flyers, the NHL hockey team, hired me to design the costume for their new mascot, completely from scratch.
I began the project by sketching over 20 different possible mascots, including, bats, bulls, groundhogs, dragons, tough guys, yetis, and even a flying squirrel.

Once the client saw the sketches, they picked a big dumpy monster I had drawn as the starting point. After several iterations, including different wing styles and facial expressions, we landed on their new mascot, which I had nicknamed “Benny.” Once the sketch stage was complete, I drew the monster in a turn-around to help the costume designers get an idea of how the mascot looked in three dimensions. This will easily be one of the most memorable projects of my whole career, and it’s an honor to be part of the team’s rich history permanently.

Client Testimonial:
Thank you again for all your great work throughout the project! Appreciate the quality work, quick turnarounds and accommodating the many changes we sent your way.
Ben DiCandilo
Philadelphia Flyers, Marketing Manager

2BC Hockey Halloween Background

Client:
Dominic Boshell – 2BC Sports

Description:
Hockey fight of ghouls and zombies for a halloween themed website background I illustrated for 2BC Sports’ website. I was recently hired to modify a previous illustration I had made for the website’s background – changing all the characters from normal human hockey players to zombies, to celebrate the halloween season. The client wanted a detailed illustration of a huge hockey fight in an arena. The illustration was set up so that the different hockey players and refs in the brawl could move along with the content of the site, independently of the background. I created the artwork in Manga Studio, and colored it in Adobe Photoshop.

Custom decal set I created for Shaft ID, a company that creates decals for hockey helmets and wraps. This set was made to look like the helmet was being peeled away and showing a zombie underneath.

Lethal Threat Designs

I recently had the pleasure of working with Lethal Threat, a huge name in the graphic decal business.  I came up with this concept of a zombie enjoying a “hearty” snack.  Originally designed as a graphic decal for a bike’s tank.  I probably don’t need to say this, but I had a lot of fun with this!
