How do you make a photo of Alex Ovechkin hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time even more memorable?
You make it out of all the Capitals' game scores this year, of course.
Capitals fan and artist Daniel Duffy (@RealArtOfWords) posted a phenomenal finished piece commemorating the Cup win on Wednesday, June 20. It's a little meta and astounding to look at, but very fun to try and read. If you want to relive the glory that was the parts of the 2017-18 Capitals season, check out the piece.
FINISHED! Introducing the Alexander Ovechkin word art - handwritten with the date, score and opponent of every Capitals game in 2018! pic.twitter.com/6U1MLdaqDm— Daniel Duffy (@RealArtOfWords) June 20, 2018
The piece, which appears to be done in a traditional medium like pen or marker, holds the team faced, arena played at, and final score of every game. It uses six colors and over sixty lines of text. Ovechkin roars as he holds the Stanley Cup overhead, the white away jersey shaded with bits of grey text. It takes a skilled eye to sort text and colors into shapes and shading, but Daniel did a fantastic job! It's awesome to see a fanbase create different interpretations of iconic moments. We'll surely see more of Ovechkin in this moment.
Just as we thought we were going to get tired of the celebration, fans find new ways to surprise us. Stay creative, Caps fans!
