Roberto Luongo Team Canada Olympic Mask – Newly Released
This evening Roberto Luongo’s longtime mask artist, Marlene Ross of Marlene Ross Design, was kind enough to forward these fantastic images of Luongo’s new mask that she created for the Vancouver Olympic Games. Louongo’s Canucks masks are already among the most popular designs with fans and this great Canadian twist on Johnny Canuck is sure to please as well. I love the weaving in of the Canadian flag and how it flows onto the back plate, the use of Johnny as Olympic Torch bearer and especially the golden 1 on the chin. Not sure if that was intended to be flame filled, or if Marelene and Roberto just want to make it clear he is hnting for gold – either way it works for me.
Enjoy the photos and head over to Marelene’s own site for a look at her gallery.
