Sidewalk concrete medallions, they fascinate me so I decided to put together a collage. They are very common in Victorian communities, such as Cape May, Buffalo and Brooklyn. You know, where the stuff is old and built right. If you see one please send me a photo or a location so I can take a picture of it.

The Buffalo Bisons have had to update their logo as their partnership with the New York Mets is over. This is a disappointment. It is a poorly executed revamp of the mid 1980’s Hittin’ Buster design. My apologies to ADPRO Sports, but your illustration falls flat and the use of colors leaves something to be desired.

I figured out how to incorporate the Bandits into the combo logo. I was trying to use the hat, the bandana and the eyes. Then it hit me that I should use the hands to hold the sabres!

It’s been a while since I nerded out about Buffalo and or sports logos, so here’s a new one. I was reading a thread on the forum over at Sportslogos.net and it was about combining all the professional sports logos from one city into one logo. There was one for Buffalo but it was a little plain and lacking any representation of the Bisons. So I took their idea and built on it. I am still trying to figure out a way to incorporate the Bandits (professional Lacrosse) elements into the design.
