If you’ve ever wanted some original Stevie Roxelle artwork to help you brag about your awesome hockey team, here’s your chance. I’m selling my first print here, and no surprise, it features our favorite speed demon. Here’s a preview:
I freely admit this isn’t Red Wings art, but it does have to do with the Lightning. Not only has this team garnered a soft with Wings fans due to their GM being Stevie Y, but they booted the much-despised Penguins last night.
In honor of that, I’d like to share my appreciation for Ryan Malone’s fantastic facial hair.
In this Detroit Free Press article, Draper mentioned inviting Helm and Abdelkader over for an egg hunt today. With the intensity of our young forwards, I don’t think it would have gone as well as Drapes would have hoped.
I’m sure everyone noticed that Johan Franzen took a Doan-assisted header into the boards early in yesterday’s game. When came back to the bench a period later with 21 stitches, cotton in his nose, and no visor, I think we all saw how badass hockey players can be. (And when Turris tore off a fingernail later in the game and was crying about it, well that just shows how some hockey players can be total babies.)
Those stitches, added to the other cuts and scrapes on Franzen’s face, had some of us comparing him to a certain stitched-together, reanimated monster.
Maybe when he needs a scoring boost we can hook up a car battery to those neck bolts and give him a jump.
Among all the other things that happened at H2H2 (which, yes, there are some doodles that came out of that that I’ll eventually get on the internet), I was asked by the fellows at Winging It In Motown to assist them artistically with a few projects. At first I was hesitant, due our the deadly rivalry. But then when they told me it involved Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I knew that I had to do it, just so I could draw Pavel as a snarky French guard.

Oh, and just so we’re clear, TPL FOR LIFE, BITCHES.
I wanted to get these up before I depart for the H2H2 festivities tomorrow. A few more macro-style drawings for when you need to cuss at one of our players, much like the one I made for Hudler:
And an alternate version:
I find it entertaining that I’m posting this one after all the Tuzziloveon here the past two days. Don’t get me wrong, Bert’s grown on me the past season, and I love having him on the Wings. However, he still does some stupid shit sometimes and I’m still going to yell at him for it.
If you have any suggestions for players who regularly make you scream “DUDE WHAT ARE YOU DOOOOING?!” and you’d like to see them captioned with something similar, I’d be willing to give them a shot.
