The Phantom as theme on mask

The Phantom
Emil Karlsson wanted a mask design with a theme with his favorite hero, the Phantom. And since it’s also of my own favorite heroes, it was a very funny assignment. We wanted to create a design solution as different as possible. I came up with this idea and Emil liked it.

The mix of detail painting with both airbrush and pencil creates a kind of old school cartoon feeling with strong contrasts. And as always extreme detail work, that I just love, mixed with Metallic FX by DAVEART and DAVEART Holographix FX. Check it out in the mask gallery and on Facebook!

Two cool dudes on Helenius’ Södertälje mask

Södertälje SK
Riku Helenius had a clear picture of how he wanted his SSK mask, and that was with his two favourites from the TV world... I created this old school design with their portaits on each side in blue tones, mixed with a strong Södertälje design with a clean and basic look. The lines inspired by the team uniform give a strong hockey feeling, and extreme detail work and 3-D effects add that something extra.

Custom design for EA Sports

EA Sports
This design is custom created for the EA Sports team, and it was much fun creating it. The design’s theme is game consoles fighting eachother in a cool way. The consoles have been transformed into cool monsters, and hand controllers have gotten fangs and eyes, and they are tearing out of the sheet metal. I created them in a funny cartoony style with lots of details. On one side the old classic Sega Megadrive, and on the other PS3. Maxxed with Metallic FX by DAVEART and DAVEART Holographix FX.

New course dates in DAVEART School Of Airbrush

DAVEART School Of Airbrush
DAVEART’s own airbrush school DAVEART School Of Airbrush that we started three years ago has been a great success. The weekend workshops are arranged here in our specialized airbrush studio and we offer workshops both for beginners that want to get started and for the more experienced that want to develop their skills. It’s so much fun to meet up with other painters and paint together. The school has got a lot of attention, and it was amazing when the Swedish Crown Princess Couple visited the studio this spring.

We have now scheduled new course dates for the autumn and winter! We recommend you to book your place as soon as possible, since there are a limited number of places available for each course. Go the School Of Airbrush website to book and read more and check out pics from previous workshops.

Old school design for Mikael Tellqvist

Dinamo Riga
I have painted for the Swedish star keeper Mikael Tellqvist for more than 12 years now and it’s always as exciting. This mask design I created for him this winter, a design in a very classic spirit that is completely built on the club’s powerful logotype. Much old school think with strong contrasts, spiced up with quite a lot of design effects and 3-D details. The design gets clear and distinct from a long distance and when you look more close you discover a new world of details.

Check out Mikael Tellqvist’s Dinamo Riga mask design in the mask gallery, on our Facebook page or in the DAVEART App for iPhone, iPad and Android.
