By contrast, this calendar was a perfect commission. The patron approached me with a proposal to draw a calendar about hockey. Great idea! The transaction went smoothly and they gave me complete creative freedom. No specific dictates or requests, just my imagination. So I decided to make a story for this calendar about the confrontation between the red and blue teams. From the very beginning of the game (cover), to halftime (middle, clearing the ice) and up to the final (victory of the Reds and presentation of the cup). Everybody wins!
