Ted Williams

TOM- I'm sure by now everyone is familiar with this guy, Ted Williams. A pretty amazing story about a homeless dude with this incredible radio voice. All it took was one video of him to go viral on Youtube and within days he was appearing on daytime television shows, in talks to become the next voice for the Cleveland Cavaliers and getting offers for voice over work from companies like Kraft. It's good to see a positive story like this getting a whole lot of attention from all over the world. It certainly got my attention and inspired me to draw a little portrait of the man himself. As I was drawing this I couldn't help but think that just a matter of days ago, this man was out on the streets asking for money. Just goes to show how unpredictable life can be, in a good way. If we think we know where we'll be in three days time, we're only fooling ourselves. Go Ted!
