A giraffe on Dubnyk´s new Edmonton mask…

Edmonton Oilers

I am very proud to present the new Edmonton Oilers mask for Devan #Dubnyk.

Devan and me brainstormed a lot during summer, Devan wanted something old school for his new #NHL mask, just as his previous #Edmonton #Oilers masks we have worked on together. A plan crystalized how the design could be created, and I started to paint :) Love to paint in different styles from day to day.

The tribute design is created as a homage to the old school Oilers masks. On a distance it is a classic old school design, and when you come closer you will discover all the details and the mask enters a new dimension with all the #DAVEART trademarks effects.

And not only that, the mask is a time traveler. Is is created just as if it´s 20 years old or more... it´s rust coming from the screws… and scratches and marks and stuff all over the mask. It´s like Devan found this 25 years old mask in the attic and just dusted it a bit and started to play :)

And just as usual on Devan´s masks, it is a cool giraffe checking in :) And it´s a hockey giraffe, he has his mask hanging there as well. We recommend him to put on the mask.

Thanks Devan, love to be your personal artist :)
