Yobeat’s Fan Mail department recentlyÂ receivedÂ this extremely odd email. In the email it stated that, “MyÂ girlfriend painted this of Gabby (Maiden), I think it is awesome, but I’d like to know what she thinks.Â It is being sold by Stoked for 75 bucksÂ – 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.Â
