Wildlife of Arizona - Chad Johnson, Phoenix Coyotes, NHL, 2012
David about the design:
Chad wanted a classic design in retro feeling, and from a distance it looks just like that. But the closer you come the more you will discover, and the mask transforms in front of your eyes into a mask that pays tribute to the fantastic wildlife of Arizona.
When I visited Arizona I was so incredibly fascinated by the cool wildlife, and I just couldn´t stop thinking of those rattlesnakes, we don´t have those here in the forests in Sweden... :-) When you look closely all over the mask you will discover that the white base is created as the skin of a rattlesnake... And not only that, you also find paw prints of a coyote running all over the mask, and so much more...
Thank you all for your interest in my paint!
