Fighter Jet Mask - The Saga Continues - Ondrej Pavelec, Winnipeg Jets, NHL, 2012
David about the design:
When we presented Ondrej Pavelec´s first mask my mailbox almost exploded, I am so happy the design was so popular among the Jets fans. And Ondrej was also so happy with it that he wanted this one to be a continuation in the same style. We just changed some minor details, every artwork is unique.
The design Ondrej and I came up with is a tribute to the Canadian Airforce, built on the team logos. I came up with the base design idea when the new team logos were presented to me last summer. Ondrej loved my ideas. The wings spread out on each side in a powerful way, both look good on a distance and close up, and the closer you come the more details you will discover, with both canadian fighters jets and cockpit details. I always do a lot of research before any artwork, every artwork tells its story.
The chin of the mask transforms into an old school fighter jet front with its special classic painting with eyes and teeth. A cool detail that spices up the old school design and makes the mask feels like Jets to a 100%. The design is made to fit the uniform with its clean and traditional look. And of course a lot of details, 3-D effects and DAVEART Holographix FX.
