I got my first client testimonial!
I’m sure everyone is tired of hearing me praise Kam, but what he has done for me in nothing short of remarkable. Athletes/celebrities get hit up hundreds of times a day from random people asking them for something. Social media is even crazier since anyone can “tag” another person in a post. Take Twitter, for example. Do a search on any athlete/celebrity andyou’ll find thousands of posts of a single a celebrity, and the chances of that celebrity of reading a particular tweet, let alone replying to that tweet, is just a notch above zero.
I don’t know how or why, but for some reason Kam saw and replied to the tweet of my first drawing of him. I still remember the exact moment when I checked Twitter on my phone and I saw my original tweet had 60+ retweets and been “favorited” hundreds of times. I was like, what the hell just happened?!
I traced the origin back to Kam’s retweet and casually asked him if he’d like a drawing of his own. Honestly, I didn’t even expect him to reply, but I thought “hey, what the heck, might as well try.”
When he replied that would like a drawing of his own I was like “Oh, shit! Now what do I do?!” Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” was on constant repeat in my mind. Was this my one shot?! If so, I REALLY don’t want to blow it.
Like all of my drawings, I took my time and put everything I had into that piece. If he didn’t like it, then it wasn’t meant to be. Simple as that.
But reading Kam’s post on Instagram… man, that blew me away! I don’t care who the person is, when someone gives your hard work that kind of praise… it’s a pretty awesome feeling.
Thanks again for everyone’s support! Definitely means a lot! I not sure what will happen next, if anything, but I’ll keep ya’ll posted as things begin to take shape.
