Pittsburgh Penguin Tomas Vokoun has his first mask for his new team, thanks to artist Dave Gunnarsson of Daveart.com.
InGoal discussed Vokoun’s signing, aging and his evolution in goal back in October. If you didn’t get to see the piece, it’s well worth a read today.
Vokoun’s new mask was created as a tribute his new city of Pittsburgh, and like all Daveart creations, it comes with a name – Mask of Steel.
On his new creation Gunnarsson writes, “It is all built on the awesome Penguins logos and the whole design is created as a so called 2 in 1 design. From a distance it is a clear old school design with strong contrasts, and the closer you come the more and more details you will discover and the mask enters a new dimension. And when you come really close you discover the mask is made of steel, with rivets and stuff, as a tribute to the city of Pittsburgh and the steel industry.”
