This was a fairly important piece for me and it seems like it was done so long ago.

It was the late spring 1990 and I had been asked by Dan Diamond to provide a drawing to show how I would approach doing the portraits of the "Honoured Members" of the Hockey Hall of Fame. I think that I had a weekend to do it and was a big fan of Mark Messier, and he was/ is an instantly recognizable face, so I chose to draw him. I used a cover of the now defunct "Inside Hockey" magazine as reference.

I guess it was good enough for them because I got the job-only to be replaced 4 years later. But, hey, it was fun while it lasted.
