As part of the Colorado Avalanche's fan appreciation night, they invited fans to design a new mask for J.S. Giguere. Designs were then voted on by the public in an online vote. Thanks to some HJC readers perhaps, back-to-back HJC Concept of the Year artist Justin C., was the winner!
There were several other prizes that went along with seeing your design come to life. I could sit here and write about all of them, but I'll let Justin explain his monumental achievement in his own words.
The whole weekend was incredible and I can't thank you, Ryan,
enough for all of the support and helping me get some votes! Also, in a
few interviews I mentioned HJC and that I love to design jerseys for
your site, so hopefully it'll show up somewhere!
What an amazing story and unbelievable experience Justin! I can't help but to be jealous. It seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity and you really savoured it. Congratulations on achieving something that most people will only ever dream of.
