Louis Riel

Hockey Card
The requirement for this project was to create an illustrative poster with a distinct Manitoba theme. For me personally there is a big connection to Manitoba’s hockey history. Greats like Nikolai Khabibulin, Teemu Selanne and Bobby Hull all got their start in Winnipeg with the Jets. With big names like that all establishing themselves in Winnipeg, what would other famous Winnipeggers look like in Jets kit? Louis Riel is the first exploration of that question. A left wing politician himself, Louis might be akin to Henrik Zetterberg, leading the rush up the left side with speed and power.
