Chet with his custom made Pred 2.0

Nashville Predators
I and Chet Pickard discussed ideas back and forth for his new Predators design, when I came up with the idea to create his own custom made Pred, a real kickass Pred inspired by werewolves! Chet digged the idea and I got started...

On one side the Pred 2.0 makes entrance, bringing pumped-up action to the design, and on the other side a quiet Predators design with the powerful logo, the contrast between the two sides gives a frightful effect!

Dahlberg's alter ego shows up on his new Modo mask

Modo Hockey
Today we present Nicklas Dahlberg's new Modo mask. The design is based on Modo's green stars, that appear on the sides on the white background. Lots of line graphics inspired by the team jersey, and extremely much detail work and 3-D effects. And a certain dude shows up on one side, he illustrates Nicklas' nickname...

Take a look at the mask in the mask gallery and on the DAVEART Facebook page!

Mask design with birth year as theme

Södertälje SK
Pontus Sjögren was born in 1985, and the same year Södertälje SK won the club's latest Swedish Championship title. Doesn't it sound like a great mask theme? Yes, that's what Pontus I thought. The motif of the gold goalie Hardy Åström and the beautiful SSK logo are the most outstanding ingredients in Pontus Sjögren's goalie mask design.

Check it out in the mask gallery and on Facebook!

Cruel lines create Nilsson's mask design

Luleå HF
It's always fun to try and explore new styles. Young Luleå star Anders Nilsson's Luleå design was created in old-fashion style with violent pinstripes mixed with cool airbrush effects. The strong contrasts between color and shape in the areas between the club logos is what makes this design.

Karelin on Liv's KHL mask

Sibir Novosibirsk
Stefan Liv came up with the great idea to pay tribute to the district's big son on his KHL mask, the super dominant Greco-Roman wrestler Alexander Karelin. I rocked loose and painted Karelin as some kind of a hulk on the side, he's breaking through the ice mask... Siberia, you know... On the rest of the mask I created a distinct and clear design featuring the club logo.
