Blue Bomber paint job or Quit hitting me, it's not a real helmet

At the game
This past weekend, My buddy Dean (Hank) Barkosky along with his dad and step mother came to visit and take in a Bomber game. Hank usually makes it in for one Bomber game a year and loves to paint up his face for it. In the past the quality of paint combined with mismanagement of time resulted in some pretty weak attempts at face painting. So this year Hank wanted to make sure that we would give it a solid effort.

Before the shave and paint
Here is Hank before we shaved him and started painting.

Hank's dad also known as Mr. B, didn't want to be excluded so I prepare a design for him as well.

Mr B. retro Logo
I thought it appropriate to have the senior Barkosky sport a retro logo since I was doing the current Bomber helmet on his son.

After the game
In the end, the Bomber's enjoyed a convincing 47 – 21 win over the Edmonton Eskimos and a good time was had by all. With exception to the Eskimo fans and players, so let me rephrase that. A good time was had by all that matter.

OUCH! Wouldn't want to be a Eskimo fan after this post.
