I tried designing American football helmets for Hattingdon last year but they never looked right.
I don’t know if it was the design of the grill, the shape of the helmet or the shape of the designer — me!
One thing I couldn’t do to my satisfaction was the mane. An NFL friend came to the rescue and said, “Look you gotta have some dreads or braids — a ponytail or something else — but not what you got.” So I tried it again. They’re coming up in just a bit.
But first, something adorable did come out of my failure in the helmet design — Jojo Hattingdon — who instead wears an American football inspired hat. She has been a smash hit and I just love her.
Okay, here we go. I named the design Ryder.
Just completed this one. Here’s a Ryder design for Hattingdon’s Canadian fans.
The Ryder design is not currently available in the Shop. I await your comments. Thanks everyone!
