This illustration was done as a self promotion in memorial to Walter Gretzky, the father of the famous retired Canadian hockey player, Wayne Gretzky. Walter became known over the course of Wayne’s playing career as Canada’s hockey dad and, in his own low key and unassuming way, became famous in his own right. Walter died March 4, 2021 at the age of 83.
I had to compile a couple of different reference photos to create a believable image. The final size of the artwork is 9″ X 12″.
