Badass Hockey Art Turns The Game Into a Twisted Fantasy
What happens when an uber-talented European illustrator is raised in Canada? You get tons of badass graphic art about hockey,Â apparently.Â
That’s what happened with artist Peter Diamond, who grew up loving the icy sport and has started blending the game with fantastical mythical images in a new series ofÂ highlyÂ stylized works.
Hockey is a sport that perhaps doesn’t get as much love and attention as it should in the states, but if the game looked like it does in Diamond’s fertile imagination — with playersÂ sprouting wingsÂ andÂ battling giant tentacle monstersÂ – we’re pretty sure it would kill football in the ratings.
