Oilers Retro - Devan Dubnyk, Edmonton Oilers, NHL, 2012
David about the design:
Devan Dubnyk's new Edmonton Oilers mask is a time traveller. We go back in time and get inspired by old school mask paintings from Oilers. Devan had some really cool ideas for the design, you find both old school graphics on the top and classic oil drops right in the middle of the face. It's all mixed together, created with a new twist into a new Oilers design.
It was such a joy to create this painting an early hot summer morning. It's all made with strong contrasts, 3-D effects and cool special FX, a design that lives and breathes Edmonton Oilers. And the backplate was created in a very special way... :-)
I am so proud to be your painter Devan!
