This hand made Guy Lafleur is my first attempt at not only producing a hockey card, but it is the first card I have painted in acrylic paint. Up until this point I have been using a combination of black ink pen (for outlines) and watercolor paint (to color). Getting used to the new medium was quite a challenge and I actually ruined a few cards trying to figure out my approach to the new paint. After a few tries I finally became comfortable and this is the result. The hardest part was definitely the face, due to the fact it is about the size of my fingernail. The finished size for this card matches the original measuring 3.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide. Lafleur was the first player in the National Hockey League (NHL) to score 50 goals and 100 points in six straight seasons. Between 1971 and 1991, he played for the Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Quebec Nordiques in an NHL career spanning 17 seasons and five Stanley Cup championships.
