“The new Caps mask creation for my friend Pheonix Copley was a joy a to create🙏🏻😊. It is crisp and clean on a distance, all built on the awesome team logos⭐️🎨. It lives and breath Washington Capitals with the red bottom and crisp white details, and when you come closer the 3️⃣-D FX delivers… Thanks Pheonix for the paint ride! 🙏🏻🤓❤️ @pheonixcopley @capitals @nhl #DaveArt #DaveArtFamily #DaveArtTheCradleOfCreativity @bauergoalie 😊”
