Since 1998 I have had the great pleasure of working with NHL goaltender Brian Elliott (aka Ells). When working with someone for so long, it is amazing to look back and see how both of us have developed over the years; tastes, styles and where we are to this day.
Here are a few of the masks that Ells and I have completed together starting with his iconic TMNT Casey Jones masks which began during his tenure with the Ottawa Senators.
During the incredible playoff run in the spring of 2016, Ells wore a shout-out to Curtis Joseph's iconic St.Louis mask.
With his trade to Calgary, time for new colours but he wanted to keep it with the same retro feel of the Cujo mask from St.Louis; clean sharp lines.
For the Calgary Flames military appreciation night 2017, Ells will dawn this Canadian Armed Forces tribute mask. Once again, he wanted to keep it clean and simple with shout outs to the respective CAF branches.
