Vokoun Goes Old School With New Penguins Mask

Vokoun Goes Old School With New Penguins Mask

Pittsburgh Penguins Tomas Vokoun 2013-14 mask topGiven he plays more of a stand-up, skating style than most of his more contemporary puck-stopping peers, it is perhaps fitting that Tomas Vokoun’s new Pittsburgh Penguins mask in also old school.

Painted by popular Swedish artist David Gunnarsson of DaveArt, Vokoun’s new Penguins mask will have to wait to debut in the NHL as the goalie recovers from a second blood clot scare in his career.

When Vokoun does comes back, he’ll do so in a mask that works from both a distance and up close, with big, bold logos that are easily distinguishable on TV, and more subtle detail like rivets on the team name, or miniature Penguins logos for shading that come to life the closer you get.

“The design is created as a so called 2-in-1 design,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “When you come closer you will discover more and more details, and the old school design transforms in front of your eyes, totally loaded with hidden messages. And just as usual the design is loaded with all the DAVEART trademark effects.”

Try to find more of those hidden messages in the close ups below, and you can find more of Gunnarsson’s great artwork on both his website and on his Twitter feed:

    Like the old school theme but for me the penguin on top is to big.

    yet another daveart piece with the honeycomb logos. i don’t recall seeing one this season without it. another trend that i see on a lot of his masks is the team script logo on either side of the chin (ie varlamov, price). it seems like gunnarsson recycles his ideas on all of his masks for the season like a couple years ago when he went crazy with the script on the top.
