Fan Mail


Yobeat’s Fan Mail department recently received this extremely odd email. In the email it stated that, “My girlfriend painted this of Gabby (Maiden), I think it is awesome, but I’d like to know what she thinks.  It is being sold by Stoked for 75 bucks – charity.” Upon opening the attachment and seeing the painting I again decided it was either a great joke, or a seriously odd email. Gabby’s reaction was one of shock and flattery. Gabby probably wasn’t sure if it was a joke or not either, but either way, below is the picture, and the description the artist wrote for it.

    How cool that a person would be inspired to creatively & artistically think and give of themselves. If the painting has not sold yet I will pay for charity event $400.00
