Pucks & Pixels was unknowingly created the day before my 20th birthday, March 9th, 2011. I was sitting in my Biology of the Human Immune System class, trying not to nod off in the middle of an extremely dry penicillin documentary, when I began to doodle in one of my sketchbooks. In an effort to stay awake, I challenged myself to list all thirty of the NHL teams. I managed to do this in under two minutes. Impressed with myself, I moved on to filling the leftover white space on the page, aiming for something compassionate, something that would put hockey fans on a united front. Thus, my NHLove series was created. Pucks & Pixels followed soon after.
