Not everything is as it seems. As I was working on this, it dawned on me that a few simple lines and changes could drastically change the idea behind the drawing. Funny how plans change sometimes mid execution... Hopefully for the better.
The late 90's were a tumultuous time for the Isles, as a bad product on the ice, a change in logo and uniform, and a possible switch in the ownership spot caused Long Island to go into an uproar. Then enters a man promising to use his wealth for all the changes that would satisfy the rabid fanbase. Only one catch though: he doesn't have a fortune near what he promised. This design captures that awkward time in hockey history where a man came as a savior but left as a disgrace.
