Officially licensed artwork of the NHL.
The official mascot of the Minnesota Wild.
A WILD animal born in the north woods of the Iron Range, Nordy was found skating the frozen lakes and ponds near Eveleth, MN. While no one truly knew what sort of Wild animal he is, it was clear that Nordy encompassed the true spirit of the Wild. So in 2008, Nordy proudly accepted the offer to become the mascot for the Minnesota Wild. He stays true to his "up north-y" roots but has moved into his own lair at Xcel Energy Center so he can be closer to his favorite hockey team.
S. Preston's minimalist mascot series is made for the baseball kids, young and old. These artwork celebrates the playfulness of the characters that roam the stadiums.
