We are in the military and it should have a solid, hardcore, dark overtone that spews winning (but is also PC). I like the idea of a skull wearing a barristers wig. Perhaps we could put him on a "blackjack" playing card bench somehow. Maybe he's coming out of the card or maybe a BOMB or explosion blew him out of the card. Or maybe the skull with the wig is riding a blackjackbomb (nobody knows what that is but maybe its on a playing card) and looking like Dr Strangelove riding the bomb.
Working the Scales of Justice into the design would be cool. It might also be cool to use a Gavel...but that would be my second choice.
Feel free to be creative. I may even go for something that doesn't have a skull....I'm just stuck on this skull idea and cant think of anything else cool. I've included some other squadron patches as ideas (I'm not really going for any one of these specific looks, but it was what helped generate the idea of what I'm trying to do. My vision is more detail oriented than most of these squadron patches though. But the idea of a mascot and unit brand is consistent.)
These are going to go on morale coins, shirts, and I'm going to throw up a big graphic in our unit building too. Esprit de corps and unit identity is the goal.
