Houston Astros Rebrand

So this is part two of who knows how many concepts.

 I've decided that the Astros have the worst logo set in the league. It just doesn't make sense. The scripts are stupid for their nickname and theme, like it's a space themed team, but you want cursive and pinstripes? In anticipation of the move to the AL, I went in a different direction. There will be no purple in the AL. But there is TONS of navy, and there is already a team with the same scheme as the current one. I used deep purple and burnt orange like my Houston Yakball concept. I first started with the A-star logo, which has been done by me, and a few others on here. I ended up with this version instead of one with the line in the A going strait across. Maz helped me decide on this, because it was symmetrical, and looked better. The scripts are a version of agency, arched, with a shadow under, which is an attempt to add depth. So I just pieced the rest together for a set.

 I wanted simple jerseys, and wanted to add tan in the set like I originally planned. So to match MinuteMaid Park, I used the same color they use for a uniform that will never see the field there! On the home alt, I thought a white cap would look really cool, especially when the Longhorns do the same.



  1. Hi,
    I've been following your work on Yakball on CCLSC and I've been really impressed. I saw that at the top of the page, you said that "this blog is going back to its original goal. To post concepts from new artists or skilled artists. Well, I've been trying to post my baseball league on CCSLC but it won't let me even create an account, so I was wondering if I could email you some of my work to post on this blog. It is hand drawn though if that matters to you. I would still say it is very high quality though

  2. Oh yeah sure, that might be pretty cool. My email is on the side!
