The Blueprint of Optimus Reim Part 2

Optimus Reim has become a fixture now in Leaf goaltender James Reimer’s helmet designs and his latest from the most prolific artist in the game, Dave Gunnarsson of is no exception. Though many fans will appreciate that the Leaf theme remains the focus for the man battling for time in the crease this season with newcomer Jonathan Bernier – also a customer of Daveart.

On the new design, Gunnarsson writes:

“This idea I came up with when my sons played with their Transformers toys. Reimers’s last mask was such a success that we felt we had to do a continuation of that mask…We dig even deeper into the art of #TorontoMapleLeafs. I came up with a design solution that creates an old school Leafs look on a distance. The classic flames is there just as on a certain truck…
And when you come closer the mask transforms completely into something else, it transforms into the blueprint on how Optimus Reim is built.”

He also loves to create art where the imagery is layered and the closer you look, there more you will see. In this mask Gunnarsson notes, “… you will also find the Toronto skyline. The electrical lightnings all over the mask describes the electrical feeling James has when he enters the ice in the arena.”

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
