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!

Michael J Fox´s 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!����

When Henrik called me and told me Michael J Fox was the next guest in the TV series The Mask it was just too good to be true ❤️ I am such a huge fan of Michael J Fox, both as an actor and what he is doing now with his foundation.

I always watch movies when I paint..�� I even have a cinema surround system setup in my paint room...�� And the Back To The Future movies I watch every year! Those movies will always be on my top list. I am a total BTTF fan and nerd.❤️

I remember when I was a kid in the end of the 80's, my friends asked me if I wanted to hang out, it was weekend... No, I preferred to be home with my new Back To The Future movie box...��

So to paint this mask I will never forget, it will be a treasure in my life. And then to be invited to NYC and see this masks and the other masks from the TV series, displayed at an exhibition in NYC... Wow ❤️��

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

"We made a mask out of a Delorean"

When Henrik Lundqvist teamed up with actor and advocate, Michael J. Fox, to design a mask, past and present came together to create an epic piece. In a comical nod to Fox’s last name and acting career, the mask has a cartoon fox coming out of the sunroof of the classic “Back To The Future” DeLorean.

One of the best features on the mask is the other tribute to “Back To The Future;” a depiction of the classic movie poster depicting Fox stepping out of the DeLorean, and checking his watch. Even the dates of time travel that were featured in the movie made it on the mask!

Family man Fox also included his four children’s initials on the back. Henrik and Fox also decided to include their home city of New York on the mask.

They included the Ranger’s logo, written in the “Back To The Future” font, as well as a picture of the Statue of Liberty. This mask is a great combination of both men and the things they are truly passionate about.

Justin´s dawg mask transformed into Abe Lincoln…⭐️

Washington Capitals

I had so fun when I painted and created this piece… Justin always has his mask transformed into a crazy dawg.. �� Check out his earlier masks we have made together, you find them on my site ��

Well how about transform the dawg into a politician, since Justin plays in the Capitals city with all the politicians… me and Justin brainstormed together, and then this idea popped up… How about transform Justin´s dawg into President Lincoln��, a true boss and President, yea why not?

So here he is, the dawg is showing off his teeth more than ever, and since he is Abe, he has the Abe beard, Abe hat and the same kind of tie as Abe….��

And just as usual, if you dare to come close to this hungry dawg, you will find a storybook of details, Abe himself, and the Capitolium, and the President´s sigill…and more...

And this dawg really takes care of his teeth and brush them very well, so well so they glows in the dark…��

Of course the mask is loaded with all the DAVEART Trademark Super FX��, and so much more…

Thanks Justin, so proud to be your personal artist! We have been working for many years and I am looking forward to many more years.
