Steve Mason’s 2011-2012 Columbus Blue Jackets Mask

Steve Mason’s 2011-2012 Columbus Blue Jackets Mask

Dave Gunnarsson of  has created his fourth mask for Steve Mason of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the 2011-2012 season.

According to Dave:

“This time Steve wanted something really scary to show the horror of war. But scary in a new way, not just attacking monsters… I love to think outside the box. I see myself as much a storyteller as a painter. My idea was to create a scary feeling all over the mask and I came up with this calm theme, calm in a scary and disturbing way. Just silent and scary, a new kind.”


Although Mason has kept  Civil War imagery seen on his other Jackets masks (as shown above), it takes a more serious tone on his new mask . The left side of the mask features artwork highlighting the “horror of war.” And the presence of “Scary civil war skull soldiers give the design its name: SkullSoldiers.”  



The right side of the mask features a the Blue Jackets logo with one major change: the addition of stitches. These additional lines were added with the intent of  adding “even more scary and disturbing feelings” to the mask.

    This is my favorite of all the 2012 season masks I’ve seen so far, even my precious Flyers’. In this case, less is more… those stitches are sexy!
