I've done many "Vintage Style College Mascots" and as the NFL season gets started I was thinking of what their logos/mascots might look like if they had been created in the style of Arthur Evans. I don't plan on directly using any mascot/logo looks (college or NFL) that are already out there (example: using Pistol Pete for the Dallas Cowboys). However, I may take inspiration from bits or pieces of them. Over the next few weeks/months I'll be adding my newest iterations, please let me know what you think with your comments and/or likes.

 

First up: Minnesota Vikings

For the Packers, how about a something like a butcher? Remember the team was named after a meat packing company.

I did work through something like that, but to get it to make some sense meant adding a lot of "extra" stuff. This way a viewer just sees the cheese head and connects to Packers.

The shade of green makes the Packer look like he's a zombie.

Agreed, just wanted to stay away from "Caucasian" tan.

Here are Chicago and Carolina:

They are just re-purposed from some of my other concepts.

All GREAT stuff, but I'm with Big Red; Packers should probably be more of a butcher/meat packer.

 

And without the almost hipster-looking long hair and beard; this is a franchise going back to the 1920s; I think a facial look more in tune with those times would be more on-point.

Oh yes. These, these are great. 

 

I love the exaggerated facial features of the Vikings and Cowboys. I like the royal better for the Cowboys, it pops more and makes it look more "vintage."

I love these. Great work man. I can't wait to see more!!

 

Thanks everyone!

 

Up next is the first full-body mascot in the group, because the head alone would look quite odd.
