I met Phil through his niece.
In fact, I just recently gave him a sketch of him racing, which I did 3 years ago, essentially the first sketch of the ones I'm doing now. He had me add some info to it, so I delivered it to his home about 65 km from here.
He also is the first to buy an original artwork from me.
Have fun over the weekend there ... I hope the weather will be good for you.
