M.A.S.K. Shark Artwork
This is some packaging art that I created for a custom M.A.S.K. item I’ve been working on. M.A.S.K. was this great toy line/cartoon/comic that ran from 1985 to 1988. It had a team of heroes, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and a team of Villains, Venom (Viscose Evil Network of Mayhem). Each team member had a helmet (they called them masks), that gave that person some type of power. Some shot lazes, some could make a person fly, some created holograms, etc. But on top of that, they all had cars/trucks/motorcycles that turned in to combat vehicles. M.A.S.K. is often described as a mashing together of G.I. Joe and the Transformers, both of which were popular during the same time period.
The vehicle in the art is called Shark, it’s a Porsche 928s that turns into a submarine. Shark was the only vehicle featured on a regular basis on the M.A.S.K. cartoon that did not get made into an actual toy. Gloria Baker eventually got a figure with another vehicle (Stiletto)as part of the 1988 Split Seconds line. This is a toy I always wanted as a kid, so as an adult I’ve decided to build one myself. I’ve also got a template built for the actual packaging. This is what the artwork looks like on the box. All I need now is to add the images of the car and the action figure when I get them done and the packaging will be good to go for printing.
