Jason LaBarbera of the Edmonton Oilers (born Jan. 18, 1980 in Burnaby, BC.)
From artist David Arrigo:
Upon hearing LaBarbera was joining a new team and getting a new paint job for his mask, CM Punk called both LaBarbera and myself out over Twitter asking to be included. I for one was not going to be the person telling CM Punk otherwise.
With CM Punk featured on one side of the mask, the other side is guarded by the lead of Metallica, Sir James Hetfield. The images are my caricature renditions of these celebs.
There are a number of paint techniques used on this mask to create gradients and depth. To make the colours really pop I used metallics and subtly camouflaged the Oilers logo along the chin lines of the mask.
Last night, CM Punk returned to WWE for the Payback pay-per-view in his hometown of Chicago sporting ring gear featuring(a logo reminiscent of) the Chicago Blackhawks secondary logo. At one point, he also mouthed ‘Hawks in 7’ before a move in his match.
Speaking of CM Punk, ICYMI, the Blackhawks invited him to participate in an intermission activity the other night.
This week we’re joined by St. Louis native & Blues fan Dan Johanning, guitarist for The Disappeared &The Jungle Fire. We somehow fall into a discussion about CM Punk, debate the merits of old bands you loved reuniting years later and some dumb thing Jeremy Roenick said(yeah, we’re just as shocked as you).
