Curtis Sanford Selects Mask Design for 2008-09 Season
Over 300 designs submitted to canucks.com
Kirk Car, a commercial fisherman from Mission, BC submitted the winning design, which features a stylized orca whale with gaping jaws surrounding the mask cage. In addition to having the design featured on the mask itself, Mr. Car will receive an autographed Curtis Sanford jersey plus a meet and greet with Sanford and the professionally finished mask.
“I was very impressed with the number of great mask designs and choosing the one I’ll wear this season was not easy”, said Sanford. “I chose Kirk’s design because he made the orca come to life. I’m excited to see how it looks on the mask once it’s been painted.”
Local artist and certified mask designer, Ian Johnson of Excalibur Airbrushing is currently painting Sanford’s mask. Sanford will unveil the mask at the Canucks first pre-season game on September 22nd at Edmonton. Canucks TV will be there to capture the creation of the mask and feature the design process on Canucks.com.
