Check out James Reimer’s Team Canada mask

Team Canada
Today we have the great joy of presenting the rising star James Reimer’s Team Canada mask that he inaugurated in yesterday’s WC premiere against Belarus. It’s a great honor for me to be mask painter for James and so exciting to develop his designs. This design has a strong connection with James’ Toronto masks with the same distinct lines. The design is created as an old school design with the Canada leaves standing to attention on the sides, the rest of the design is strongly inspired by Team Canada’s proud game uniform both in compisition and graphics. All created with a modern touch of depth and 3-D effects, and the cool DAVEART Holographix FX.

HonkyTonk theme on Rinne’s new Predators mask

Nashville Predators
Today’s mask to present is very unique in many ways. The Swedish Crown Princess Victoria helped me to paint one of the notes on the mask! Super cool Pekka thought, even though he’s from Finland and not Sweden... ;-)

Pekka wanted to celebrate the local HonkyTonk Nashville music and Nashville as a city on the mask. I created a completely new and unique design idea for the mask, and Pekka really liked it.

Around the mask notes are played along classic note lines, this ties the design together and the design is built out from it. The HonkyTonk theme continues on the chin with a sculpture of a double bass flanked by piano keys that create cool speed-filled graphics. The upper part is a tribute to Nashville as a city with its skyline. Of course you can spot some famous buildings, like the BellSouth Building and the arena’s tower.

As usual the design is a symphony of detail work, lots of thinking and 3-D effects with DAVEART Holographix FX that brings depth. Check out Pekka Rinne’s Nashville Predators mask now in the mask gallery, on Facebook or in the App!

Ersberg KHL champion in this graphic mask design

Salavat Yulaev
We congratulate Ersberg who won the the KHL Championships in Russia this weekend wearing this design, a design created with airbrush and brush in stylish spirit. I have painted for Erik for many years and he always wants graphically clean and stylish designs, and this design is strongly inspired by the club’s logo. The name of the club, Salavat Yulaev, comes from the name of an old rebel and national hero, and on one side I painted the statue of him in graphic style. The rest of the mask is a symphony of colors and tints matching the uniform.

Go to the mask gallery to check out Erik Ersberg’s Salavat Yulaev Ufa mask! You can also check it out on Facebook and in our App for iPhone, iPad and Android...

Tribute to Canadian heroes

Canadian Heroes
This is a quietly created design that is a tribute to two Canadian heroes, Terry Fox on one side running with his artificial leg, and the F1 star Gilles Villeneuve. It was really exciting to create this design, that I painted entirely in red tints and created in a look of classic oil painting. I tied the design together to a whole that breathes Canada, and where the focus is on the details.

Check it out in the mask gallery or on our Facebook page, and in our App for iPhone, iPad and Android!

Win the super cool action movie Machete on Blu-ray

Together with Sony we continue to give you cool movie contests. Answer the question and you may win the action film "Machete" on Blu-ray... And one of the five winners will also get the super cool action figure!

Contest question: The David-favorite Danny Trejo can be seen in another action-filled film from the 90s, with Nicolas Cage. What's the name of the movie?

Machete (Danny Trejo) is a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert DeNiro) a corrupt Senator. Double-crossed and on the run, Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin), his "holy" brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan), a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

Blue magic on Hanses’ Leksand mask

Leksands IF
Erik had a very cool idea where he wanted a blue genie on his blue Leksand mask, and how this genie sends out it’s magic making the playing card magical. A playing card that has an important meaning for Erik. The magic continues to spread and also makes the club’s beautiful shield magical!

A brilliant theme for a goalie, I thought, and created this contrast-rich design with a close connection to the team’s classic uniform. As always, a maximum of detail work.
