Tuesday afternoon, I had received a message from Joe asking if I would like to make an image that would be placed between the wheels on the back of Optimus. Something I never expected to happen and took me by surprise. The image would be in memory of his mother Judy. If you recall, I met her on my trip back to Pennsylvania in September. Joe told me so many stories about her and when we met, I completely understood why she was an amazing woman.
Like I said just a few lines ago, this was completely unexpected. I had no idea Joe was even working on this and you guys also know Katie, she is also working on an image to go on the truck as well. At first, I would say my feelings were of shock, happiness and humbled, I also was a little emotional and cried just because I knew what it was going to stand for. I know you guys have watched me build images before and how meticulous I can be but this one, I am putting my all including my heart into this until it is perfect. I’ve been working on the image for a couple of days now and the first couple drafts were ok, honestly more like meh but the one I am working on now is a lot better and a mixture of the two. Once all finished, go look the photos I have here for you and hopefully you’ll remember seeing it.
Elvis, Maximus, Mya and your kids, one thing to take from this is, no matter what you do in life do, it with everything you have and don’t look for a massive recognition but a simple thank you. These are your moments to show what you can do for others and not put yourself first especially when it comes to friendship. Remember also, it’s the little things that mean the most.
