Ben Scrivens New Leafs Mask Goes Retro
Scrivens’ old school goal mask design brought to life by Daveart
So he turned to famed Swedish painter Dave Gunnarsson of Daveart Designs to create his new look.
Bold and simple, it reminds us of the early days of mask design.
You can almost imagine Mike Palmateer roaming his crease – and often well beyond – wearing this beauty in the late 70s.
More on Ben Scrivens:
As he does with every mask he creates, Gunnarsson had a few words to share on his blog and Facebook page about the retro look he created for Scrivens:
“It was such a pleasure to create Ben Scrivens’ Leafs mask. Ben wanted to go total old school and had this awesome idea in mind. The white leaf in the middle and leaf lines around it almost like water rings.
It can’t be more old school than this, I took white and blue colors and just got started.”
