Alexander Ovechkinaut

Alexander OvechkinautAfter posting a sketch of former NHL stars and mega millionaires Ilya Kovalchuk and Ilya Bryzgalov as cosmonauts, I got to thinking, wouldn’t it be funny to paint a series of Russian NHLers as cosmonauts?

The honest answer is, “Probably not.” But I’m going to do it anyway. This one’s Washington Capitals sometimes-superstar, Alex Ovechkin. Like my WWF Zombies, this NHL Cosmonaut is a 9×12″ watercolor.

  1. It really looks like him.

    Is that a standard cosmonaut uniform he’s wearing? For some reason, it looks strange to see him in something without the Capitals’ color scheme.

    1. Thanks. I found a bunch of cosmonaut uniform images online, and I just plopped Ovi’s head onto one of them. I’m working on a couple others. The only problem is that other than Ovi and that big dumb ox, Malkin, nobody has a really recognizable, distinct face. (I’m cosmonauting Sergei Bobrovsky right now, and he’s a perfect example of a guy with no distinguishable face.) That’s the NHL’s fault.

      Unrelated, the Russians had a cosmonaut named German Titov, and an NHL player named German Titov.
