Pekka Rinne 2011-2012 Predators Mask
Daveart creates new PredGoalie mask – “Hardcorelicious”
took the “retro” mask look to a completely new level last season with his PredGoalie mask for Nashville’s Pekka Rinne. Featuring a ferocious beast wearing a stitched together old-school mask, this one was a huge hit and as original as they come. Rinne and Gunnarsson know when they have a good thing and have taken last year’s design and tweaked it a bit for the coming season.
This year’s design is a continuation of last year’s, but now even more wild and mad… So we named it Hardcorelicious PredGoalie…and I cannot tell you enough how fun I had creating it! It’s created in the new Predators colors, with more blue and yellow. The Predator goalie is a real badass goalie, he has lost a tooth, and he also has a tongue piercing…and his brain is showing! He has tried to fix his mask using all possible tricks, staples, needle and wire, and band-aid again of course…
For comparision, here it is with last year’s model:
