Hockey Hall of Fame, part 1

Posted in Woodcut/engraving illustrations, People, Recent work

A series of illustrations for a display at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. They were setting up a new wall to commemorate the winners of the media awards: the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for hockey-writers and the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for members of the radio and television industry. I had to do 80 portraits in three months! But it was one of my favourite jobs. What a great cast of characters to draw…

From left to right, top to bottom: Scott Young (Neil’s dad), Roy MacGregor, Leo Monahan, Red Fisher, Basil O’Meara, Helene Elliott, Michael Farber and Jack Dulmage.

Media: marker on layout paper, scanned and finished in Photoshop.
