So I just recently received the best gift anyone could give me. As you can tell, it has something to do with my favorite artist David Choe. For those of you who do not know about David Choe, he is a remarkably talented artist that initially started his career as a graffiti artist in LA. I started to follow his career about 10 years ago prior to his notoriety for his artwork at Facebook. I still cherish the old e-mails that I actually received from him when he used to personally respond to his fans. My husband knew that I was a big fan of him and purchased two personally signed prints as gifts in the beginning of our relationship.

These are two original prints signed by David Choe.  Snake Eyes and a tribute to President Obama during his first presidential campaign

So she personally asked David Choe for a favor. This was the best unexpected gift anyone could give me. A personal message from my favorite artist.
