A few friends and I are starting a triathlon club in Salt Lake. Given the state's affinity for bees (http://www.utah.com/visitor/state_facts/symbols.htm) we thought we could work in a few symbols on our race kits. Here is a quick render of the bee symbol that would be placed on the outside left leg.
We're also exploring a black on black honeycomb pattern with different materials and printing techniques to give it a gloss on matte finish.

I'm with Craig, the symbol reminds me of the symbol on the huge chemicals needed to make meth in the tv series breaking bad. Check out the links below to see what we mean. http://goo.gl/Pfe8O and http://www.tshirtvortex.net/breaking-bad-methylamine-bee-logo-t-shirt/
Hi @Linevoy, you and @Craig Keller are totally right about the resemblance to the BB bee. In fact I used it as reference when I started scribbling away at the shape. I like the aggressiveness of the sharp angles and felt that approach was more suitable for the race kit. I want to simplify this further and remove the torso and size down the head a bit.
Please send more feedback this way and I'll post progress shots soon.
Oh, my methylamine comment was not meant to be derogatory. I love that logo, and i love this too. Great work.
@Jonathan Minori WE HAVE TO COOK!
Haha, oh I didn't take it as a derogatory comment :-) Sorry if my post came off that way. More just to clear the air. Thanks for the post!
Better Call Saul!
Likewise to all that has been said. : ) I like the sharp angles and the bee itself. My intent was only raise awareness. I don't think it matters one way or another, but at least I can aid you to make the decision to keep going (near the meth bee like design - and it is cool) or deviate away from it.
So much better than the other one you posted.
