My aunt Frances is a really big John Lloyd Young fan. He's the award winning singer and actor from the movie directed by Clint Eastwood and the Broadway play of the same name, "Jersey Boys". I recently completed a painting of him for my aunt. As I worked on the John Lloyd Young (JLY to his adoring fans!) piece I would send my aunt updates of the progress and she in turn shared those pictures with other JLY fans via Facebook and other social media. The piece was very well received by many of the entertainer's fans and they often sent me compliments and words of praise. On Sept 15 I went to the singer's mini concert in North Hollywood where I met up with my aunt. There I got to meet some of his great fans and after he performed met the singer himself! I showed him the original portrait and he was very pleased and was very gracious and complimented me on my work. He signed the portrait (which my aunt loved) and I gave him a print of the piece. Overall, it was a great night and I made some new friends. I included some pictures of the event to the right. Sorry some came out so blurry and dark!
