Some may know, some may not, that Cale started up a Pegasus contingent in California called TPWC, or Team Pegasus West Coast. The colors are the same old Pegasus Pink (100% Magenta) and a lime green that I hope prints lime green. While I didn't do this year's Midwest (and everywhere else) design, I had started TPWC much earlier. I declined to do the Midwest design because I'm feeling a little out of ideas for Pegasus kit. Or, to look at it a different way, I came up with ideas but I thought they were weak and not that original. Hmmm...
Anyway, the TPWC kit had a couple of cool features I'm liking so far. The left justified logos on the back are doing it for me. I'm also kinda stoked about the 'off registration' lines around the pegasus on the front. It shows just a hint of color, as if the light is hitting a glass Pegasus and it's casting colors onto the jersey. It's nothing totally new, but I was excited to try it.
As with years past, there will be a white kit as well.
The shorts are.... okay. The stripe will (should) line up with the jersey, so I'm hoping that it looks good. It's hard to say, though. Maybe it will make people's torsos look freakishly long. Maybe the jog over to the side of the leg will look awkward. I think these kinds of difficult details are what make a race kit look good, if you can get them right. But sometimes you only know if you got it right when you finally see someone wearing the kit.
I nearly went with black Pegasus on black jersey (and white on white). I think it looks great and pops on-screen, but may have lost a little when printed. And if that happened, who would want a black jersey with colored sleeves and, oh, now that I'm closer I finally see a weency little outline of a winged horse. The risk was too great! Sorry, black on black.
So, everyone cross your fingers and hope that all shapes show up as planned on the kit. Champ-Sys is usually great at turning my drawings into the correct forms to fit a 3D surface, but I'll still take good thoughts. So send them our way!
