Jonas´ mask is transformed into a Monster hot rod

Detroit Red Wings

Today we have the pleasure to present the new mask for the new Detroit Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson! The design was very, very funny to do! A mask in a total new style! I love to always do new stuff.

Since Jonas is the Monster, and Detroit is the motor city, we transformed the mask into a living monster hot rod! So many details all over the mask, the windscreen is the eyes in the forehead, and the mouth on the bumper on the chin, and Red Wings paint job on the hood...and a big bad V8 engine with big exhaust pipes on the sides...

In the backgrund the Detroit skyline, and the traffic light is showing green, ready…gooo! Burnout...

It is so much fun to work with Jonas, we have made maaaaany masks together since Jonas was a kid back in the 90s. Love to work with you Jonas!

Linköpings HC

On all masks I´ve painted for Linköpings HC´s keeper Christian Engstrand there have been Ninja Turtes, and that´s many cause Christian and I have been working together since the 90s! :)

It is so fun to always create the Turtles in a new look and style, cause every mask is 100% unique.

The four Turtles are breaking out through the mask made of ice, and hey watch out, seems like one of them is coming very close, and can you see who it is, you see his weapon there up close...and bandana...!

Robin Rahm´s new Brynäs mask

Brynäs IF

It´s such a joy to always come up with and create new design ideas, every day, all year around. Every mask is totally unique, always new stuff.

I have been working with Robin Rahm and created his masks since he was a kid and it is always very exciting, he is so interested in his masks. Love to work with you Robin!

Me and Robin made a lot of thinking how to create this design, a mask so important in many meanings. We wanted to do something new and outside the box, but although retro looking. A design that breathes Brynäs to 100%, and is packed with details to discover, just what I love creating.

Check it out in the mask gallery! Thank you for your interest.

Hudacek´s new Frölunda mask

Frölunda Indians

It was so fun to work with you Julius and create your first Frölunda mask!

The design is a so called 2 in 1 design, with an old school feeling from a distance, and when you come closer you discover a new world of details and the mask transforms into something else in front of your eyes. I love to paint a lot of details and 3-D effects, and here I also used a lot of Gold FX.

Welcome to check out the mask in the mask gallery, on Facebook or in our App!

Thank you.

Horror on Bachman´s new mask, new thinking in only one color

Dallas Stars

Today we have the pleasure to present the new mask of Dallas Stars´ keeper Richard Bachman. It was so awesome to create this mask for you Richard!

I love to think outside the box, to do new stuff and explore new styles and new concepts.

This may be one of the most scary mask I´ve ever created... We wanted the mask to have the same uncomfortable feeling you have when you just wake up after a nightmare..... Richard and I made a lot of thinking and brainstorming for this artwork. It is a tribute to Stephen King, because he sometimes also use the name Richard Bachman when he writes.

To make it even more scary we decided to use only one color all over the mask, and it is all painted in a scary mix of calm paint and an uncomfortable feeling all over the mask. It is all created with old school airbrush paint mixed with oil paint tech.

The left side has just an evil sinister feeling, and if you look close into the star you find the same carpet as in the hotel! On the right side we present the rage.

And just as usual it is so packed with details and messages and meanings all over the mask, so the mask enters a new dimension when you come closer...

Welcome to check out Richard Bachman´s Dallas Stars mask in the mask gallery. Thank you for your interest.

A tribute to Mom

Luleå HF

Today we have the pleasure to present the Swedish Elitserien team Luleå´s keeper David Rautio´s new mask. I have been working with David for many years, and this mask was extra special to create.

It is a tribute to David´s mother, and the design has so many messages. The bird on the side, called Berguv in Swedish, is also Davids second last name which he has from his mom. In the background you also find Lapporten, a famous valley in Northern Sweden. And there are a lot more details all over which are all parts of Rautio´s story, details is just what I love painting.

I love the challenge to create designs in different styles, this is a more free flowing and light design with soft colors.

Everything connects with the cool logo of Luleå and the beautiful jersey. A design that also has some bling-bling, the snow stars come from the Luleå bear logo.

Check it out in the mask gallery and on our Facebook page, or in the DAVEART App.

Thank you for your interest.

Rat invasion in Stockholm


Watch out, it seems to be a rat invasion in Stockholm...! It was so fun to create Daniel Larsson´s new Elitserien mask for his new team AIK. I have been working with Daniel for many years.

From a distance the design is a clear old school design that breathes AIK, but when you come closer and the TV cameras zoom in the mask you will see what is happening...! It is a rat invasion all over the mask! In Sweden AIK is also called the rats... That is why... :-)

I love to create 2 in 1 designs, the closer you come the more details you discover and the mask transforms in front of your eyes.

You can check out Daniel Larsson´s new AIK mask in the mask gallery, on Facebook and in the DAVEART App. Thank you for your interest.

Even a penguin is freezing in Luleå

Luleå HF

Today we have the pleasure to present Luleå´s and Team Sweden´s Johan Gustafsson´s new Luleå mask. I´ve been working with Johan for many years, and he always wants his childhood cartoon favorite Pingu on the mask... :)

After he moved to Luleå in the north of Sweden he learned what cold weather is, so he wanted to tell about that on his new mask. A hockey playing Pingu is popping out through the mask made of ice, and just freezing his *ss off :) Of course he has a Luleå scarf on... And just as usual the mask is pumped with crazy details all over.

Take a look at the mask in the mask gallery. Thanks for your interest, next mask will come very soon, with running rats!
