The Torch - Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens, NHL, 2012
David about the design:
I am very happy to present the new mask of the Montreal Canadiens keeper Carey Price. It was such an honor for me to be chosen to create your new mask look Carey.
Carey wanted something completely new, something outside the box, and that is exactly what I love to do, always explore new styles and effects, always evolve and never stand still.
Carey had such an excellent idea. He wanted to do a tribute design to the golden torch that is brought out in the playoffs in Montreal, to signify the passing of the torch from the old players to the new. And with this he wanted a lot and lot of sweet chrome effects.
I immediately saw a design idea in front of me, I came up with the idea of transforming the whole mask into a big chromed torch with retro hot rod flames, mixed with top modern chrome effects with DAVEART XXFX SilverChrome. Packed with so much details, action and 3-D effects. A design that will look good in any angle. Among all the details you will discover famous buildings from Montreal as a tribute to the city of Montreal.
The closer you get the more details you will discover, and the mask transforms into a new design in front of your eyes. Much of the details cannot even be seen in photos.
The chrome also makes the mask even more unique, the mask is nearly impossible to photograph since it is so chromy and shiny. It works better on TV... :-)
Thank you for your interest.
