What happens when an uber-talented European illustrator is raised in Canada? You get tons of badass graphic art about hockey, apparently. 

That's what happened with artist Peter Diamond, who grew up loving the icy sport and has started blending the game with fantastical mythical images in a new series of highly stylized works.

Hockey is a sport that perhaps doesn't get as much love and attention as it should in the states, but if the game looked like it does in Diamond's fertile imagination -- with players sprouting wings and battling giant tentacle monsters -- we're pretty sure it would kill football in the ratings.
