Talbot is possessed by…. Slimer! Better call someone...��

New York Rangers

Watch out… Cam Talbot is possessed by… Slimer! You better call someone…. ��

Slimer is big, he is sliming and drooling, and he looks very hungry… even the Statue of Liberty up there looks afraid…�� Lucky us Cam Talbot is also known as the Goalbuster, so he can take care of the Slimer and get him rid off his face! ��

And as the true ghost Slimer is, he also glows in the dark��… It can also be very handy with a glowy ghost on the mask, if the power goes in the arena, just follow Cam.��

The mask is not only loaded with G.L.O.W Tech FX��, you will also find all the other DAVEART Trademark Super FX��, such as Hologram FX 2.0, and more...

And please, close the fridge, Slimer looks very hungry…����

Thanks Cam, love to be your mask artist and come up with all these crazy ideas with you...����

Lundqvist´s FDNY mask in the TV series The Mask ��

New York Rangers

It has been an awesome adventure making the TV series "The Mask" with Henrik Lundqvist and all his guests in NYC. A dream project for sure!

To make the FDNY mask was very special. Not only the mask must look good, it must also be worthy.��

Me and Henrik talked a lot and brainstormed how to create it. I made drawings and we sent them back and forth. Both Henrik and me met the FDNY firefighters of the world famous team Rescue 1. A plan was crystallized how to create this piece.��

On one side is a tribute to the fallen heroes from 9/11, I made the painting of the firefighters raising the American flag.����

Then the other side is a tribute to the Rescue 1 team, with their own firetruck called Outstanding driving out on new missions. Also a close up of the front of the truck with the truck´s name.��

One thing that was important to Henrik was also the phrase in the forehead of the mask ”Still We Rise”. And all over the mask it is so loaded with details to tell the story of the heroes of NYC.❤️

It was a truly honor to create this mask and something I will always keep in my heart. It was also extra special to meet the Rescue 1 firefighters in NYC. Me and my wife were also invited to the Rescue 1´s team 100 years anniversary in NYC. It was truly amazing to be there. Thank you Rescue 1 for inviting us.❤️

Here is more about this mask from www.msg.com :

"When Henrik sat down with some of the bravest people in New York, the New York City Fire Department, an amazing mask was bound to be created.

Henrik and the FDNY decided that this mask would be a tribute to the city they all call home. The mask features imagery of the New York City skyline, specifically, the Twin Towers, the Statue of Liberty, and the newly finished Freedom Tower. These buildings are a touching tribute to New York’s past and present.

The mask also has a 343 on the chin piece to honor those firefighters who lost their lives as a result of 9/11. The mask also has a "Rescue 1" 100th anniversary patch, and a Rescue 1 Fire truck. Henrik and the FDNY thought it was important to make sure the mask honored New York’s best and bravest."

Coyotes design in a new way..������

Arizona Coyotes

David Leggio and I saw in front of us how to create a Arizona Coyotes design in a totally new way... We started to brainstorm and a plan crystallized...✏️

We are happy to unleash the new mask artwork of David Leggio.

The closer you come to the mask the more it opens up and becomes the storybook of Leggio's mask art ��.

The Arizona Coyotes logos rock the mask in a new way in a universe of black and white... And not only that, it also glows in the dark with G.L.O.W Tech FX, and of course all the other DAVEART Trademark Super FX joins the joyride...

Thanks David, it is a pleasure to be your artist ����.

Ellis´ new Florida mask is transformed into a... swamp boat (!!)…����

Florida Panthers

Be ready for an action ride in the Florida swamps among dangerous animals…�� Dan Ellis new Florida bucket is transformed into a swamp boat, and of course it is a cool panther driving it…!��

On one side he looks really badass…�� but hey what is swimming under the boat… it is the tail of a gator!��

The panther can sense it is a gator somewhere, but he can’t see it, he look back… Oh no, this is bad news… the gator pop up on the side with hungry eyes.. We recommend the panther to go even faster! ��

I love to paint masks so they transforms into something else… and this is the first time I transform a mask into a Florida swamp boat… a perfect fit for a goalie in Florida Panthers… ������

And just as usual it is loaded with details all over the mask and all the DAVEART Trademark effects��… I had fun when I painted this piece.����

Thanks Dan! We have been working for so many years, you are so creative and I love to be your painter.��

Markström's Millionaires mask pays tribute to the Sedin twins horses..����

Vancouver Canucks

I am very happy to present Jacob Markström's Vancouver Millionaires mask. It is a very unique mask design.. It pays tribute to the Sedin twins two horses...����

Jacob called me and told me his ideas for this mask... I loved it and I couldnt wait to get started. I brainstormed and sketched. I showed my drawings to Jacob ✏️ and I could start to paint with my airbrushes at once.

It is a clean cut old school design, all based on the awesome Millionaires logos and jerseys. And when you come really close a new dimension of detail work opens up, and under the maroon glittering sky you find the horses racing.

Me and Jacob have been working together for many years and it is always so exciting to create and paint your new pieces, thanks Jacob! ��

Jeff Gordon´s racing mask with Lundqvist in the TV series The Mask ��

New York Rangers

It has been an awesome adventure making the TV series "The Mask" with Henrik Lundqvist and his guests. A dream project for sure!

I love racing and when Henrik called me and told me Jeff Gordon was the next guest in the TV series The Mask I started to brainstorm at once… I started to think of the cool flames Jeff often has on his helmets… How about create classic racing flames, in a new way on a mask… I started to sketch and the ideas crystallized and I started to paint in front of the TV cameras...��

And then it was awesome to be invited to NYC and see these masks from the TV series, displayed at an exhibition in NYC…������

Here is more about this mask from www.msg.com :

When Henrik sat down with racing legend Jeff Gordon, it was obvious this mask would be exciting.

The first feature that stands out is Gordon’s iconic car number 24 painted on the chin piece. The flames on the front and the checker flags are other links to the racing world, and a great nod to Gordon's historic career in NASCAR.

The mask also features a Stanley Cup and Sprint Cup, celebrating the success both men have had in their respected sports. Finally, there's a picture of Gordon himself as well as a classic racetrack.

This mask is a great tribute to one of the greats in racing and one of the greats in hockey, as well as a celebration of both careers.

Gerber´s Kloten mask...

Kloten

Today we have the pleasure to present Martin Gerber´s latest Kloten mask ��

I have been working with Martin for more than a decade, we have created lots of funny masks together, both in the NHL as in the SHL ��

This mask is created in a very clean cut and classic look, and also created in a vintage look so it looks old and used, and it is even rust coming around the screws…

On a distance it is a classic crisp look, and when you come closer the design enters a new dimension of detail work to be discovered all over the mask…��

And for sure all the DAVEART Trademark Super FX�� is there…

You are welcome to check out the mask in the mask gallery or on our Facebook page. You´ll also find a lot of behind the scene photos on our Instagram, and you´re welcome to follow us also on Twitter.

Thanks Martin!

Thank you all, much more to come!
