A tribute to the legends of the Dallas Stars

Dallas Stars

Thanks Dan for having me as your personal artist, it is so exciting to work with you and be creative together with you.

Dan Ellis had an awesome idea for his new #DallasStars mask, he wanted to pay tribute to the legends of Dallas Stars, all created in a new iconic way.

I loved his idea, and Dan is a very skilled artist himself, he sent me some cool drawings. Together we brainstormed, and a plan crystallized how to create the tribute design. I picked up my airbrush guns and started to work :)

Dan #Ellis wanted to honor the four Dallas legends Brett #Hull, Mike #Modano, Ed #Belfour and Marty #Turco. The foundation of Dallas Stars. The goalies are created with paintings inspired by their classic mask designs, and Hull and Modano are created with portrait paintings mixed with action paintings.

I love to create different masks in different styles from day, to be as versatile as possible. This artwork is created in a worthy and realistic look, all created in a light style, to describe a feeling between a dream and reality.

The design is created in total sync with the new Dallas uniform in old school style. The closer you come the more details you will discover, and of course all the #DAVEART trademark effects are there :)
