Chicago Blackhawks: A Red Retro

Hello again everybody, and welcome to the Art of Hockey! New concept time... again! Let's dive right into it!

Chicago Blackhawks

One of the most popular concepts is Blackhawks third jerseys. And most of the time they're retro inspired, black jerseys. This one is retro inspired, but I decided to ditch the black and go with a red jersey. I have always though that the vintage white and black looks phenomenal atop that Chicago red. That's just what I did here. My concept is largely inspired by two concepts. A retro concept by Avi S. and a Nike swift concept by Dylan W. Both artists placed a roundel logo atop two separate stripes rather than the large chest stripe or the plethor of stripes across the jersey. I then wanted to further incorporate the retro feeling by adding the tomahawk 'C' logo on the arm stripes like the Hawks jerseys from the late 50's. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Thanks again for stopping by and have a great day!


  1. I like it. I was recently doing a Blackhawks concept and was toying with a vintage red jersey too.

    The only thing I have against this is how huge the arm logo comes off as. Maybe it's just me though. I also now that I look closer don't care for the three arm stripes against two chest stripes.

    Still, great work though

  2. I don't like how there is 3 stripes on the arms and socks, and then only 2 on the chest. Make it ALL 2 stripes or ALL 3 stripes. That's really my only complaint. Awesome.
