Official Outfitter

I re-worked one of my hockey girls a bit to have her modeling the Official Hockey Sweater of Team Atom-Bomb Bikini. It's kind of a sideways riff on the ole' Quebec Nordiques jerseys from back in the day...I always loved the look of those things. +1 to anyone who knows why the Nords were on my mind today.

I'm going to put this image on a note card, and sell them (along with three other designs) as a set at San Diego Comic-Con. If there's any interest, I'll offer 'em on the blog, too!

Aaaaah ! The Nordiques ! I still root for them to this day (well, mostly to annoy my townfloks who worship the Canadiens...) !

Best,

I am officially expressing my interest in this :)

Is it because Joe Sakic just retired? By the way I love these ones, especially the Pens ones =)

AKorengold said...

Yes, Joe Sakic retired and he was the last Avs player who was a Nordique? I always loved the fleur de lis on those jerseys. Do Gumchow and I get a prize for guessing right (if that's the case)?

Is it because of Tesla's Birthday? (re: the Atomic Signs on the Nords Jersey?)

Michael Dooney said...

for some reason this one made me think that it would be cool to see you put out some actual hockey style jerseys but with your girls on them instead of the team logos...put that on the to-do list will ya?

Glad you guys are digging this! I guess this counts as "interest".

Jimmy...I remember that story in Le Moral des Troupes (I believe) where you drew yourself wearing a Nordiques jersey. That was great! Sad as I was to see them move to Colorado, at least it kept them from ever wearing those awful new uniforms.

Gumchow, Adam...nice catch on the Sakic reference! In addition to my undying respect and admiration, I'll send you a free sticker of the ABB jersey-wearing girl whenever I get around to making them!

PX, you get one too...just because I'm impressed by how you tied Tesla into all this!

ps: when do the books ship?

Robert Ullman said...

I'm gonna be packaging the books over the next couple days, and hope to have 'em all out early next week. Hopefully, they'll be be in people's hands a week from today at the latest!

I think it may be my mighty brain power (atomic, perhaps) that had you thinking about the Nords. I discovered your blog about 3 days ago and have been catching up. Great work! Keep it up. Oh, and the link? I live in the Mt. Nord historic district of beautiful downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas. And it would be fun to see our beloved Hogs on a hot cartoon chick!

"...it would be cool to see you put out some actual hockey style jerseys but with your girls on them ..." I second this! It was great to see you at the Con, Rob. Lovin' all my Ullman swag.
