Tomas Vokoun “POTUS Vol 3”
Dave Gunnarsson of Daveart.com has shared another of his great masks with InGoal readers, sending us today his latest for Washington Capitals ‘keeper Tomas Vokoun. Regular readers will notice that this is very similar to his last design – and in fact Gunnarsson, who names all his designs, call this one “POTUS Vol. 3” or the third version of Vokoun’s “President of the United States” design.
We have the pleasure to present the Washington Capitals keeper Tomas Vokoun´s latest mask artwork. I am very proud to paint for Tomas and he was so satisfied with his earlier masks that I created for him so he wanted this one to be a continuation of the previous designs.
Same basic lines and details, from a distance it is a classic almost retro design with the Caps wings spreading out and strong contrasts and clear colors. But when you come closer it enters a new dimension of extreme detail work. Again the theme of the mask is The President Of the United States. Here and there all over the mask you will discover small artworks with the President and other details with that theme. I came up with the design idea this summer when I walked around our local lake, I created every detail in my mind. When I told Tomas my design ideas he immediately gave me green light to start.
