Pingu transformed into Wolverine… yes it works :)

Iowa Stars

Today we have the pleasure to present Johan Gustafsson´s latest artwork for Iowa Wild.

I love to come up with new design solutions day in day out, and this piece was so fun to create. Mix old school graphics with lots of wild effects, so it feels very Wild, so it fit the name of the team :-)

Me and Johan have been working together for so many years, and on all Johan´s masks he always wants the cool cartoon Pingu, the coolest penguin ever… He is an important character from Johan´s childhood. So how would we create Pingu on this Wild mask in the coolest way, well we create Pingu as very wild… and how do we do that? Well we transform him into wolverine!

So I created the mask as a modern old school design, loaded with details to be discovered all of the mask, just love that… and hey what is going on… there comes Pingu Wolverine with his huge claws and just rip the mask into pieces…. holy smokes!

Thanks Johan, always a pleasure to create your masks, so creative to work with you.
