David Gunnarsson has been known for designing goalie masks for numerous Washington Capitals and Hershey Bears goaltenders over the years. On Thursday, he unveiled his latest creation for Bears goalie Vitek Vanececk. You can follow David on Instagram @daveart

On his Instagram post David described Vanecek’s new mask:
It is with a great joy we unleash Vitek Vanecek’s latest Hershey Bears mask. A classic built design filled with details all over the creation. A design created in a mix of airbrush and brush tech, to catch that old school vibe. I love to mix paint techniques to reach that exact theme and style we want for the mask. Every new mask is a new and unique story. And the closer you come the more details you will discover and the design transforms in front of your eyes.

This isn’t the first time Gunnarsson designed a mask for Vanecek this season. Back in late November, he designed a blue one with the Capitals logos. He also designed masks for each goaltender prior to the Outdoor Classic last month. Well done David!
