So last year I moved to West Reading in PA. You may have heard of the town, Reading, before, it's not known all that well for anything constructive, but as I understand, it's the third worst crime city in the United States. It's really a filthy dump. West Reading is sortof the 'upperclass' section of an altogether lower class city, and the two portions are separated by a bridge over a river. (I forget which river) West Reading is marginally cleaner, and it's also outside of the main Reading school district, just barely. Near West Reading is Wyomissing, a really 'upper class' area. (seriously, I got lost there once, I didn't see a single house without three floors in some parts) West Reading sort of clips itself into the Wyomissing school district. So I went to Wyo. a couple days in, I met their wrestling coach at the Hard Bean cafe, just down the street from where I live. I had made the Bean sort of my art business center. The coach said Wyomissing had just recently gotten its first wrestling champions, Nick H. and Arty W. , and he ordered two poster-sized portraits of the boysto present to them at a ceremony. It was my fist sale in West Reading. (I have since moved back to Blandon/Fleetwood)

This was a piece I did last year, when I went to a different school. The wrestling coach commissioned me to do two portraits, one of each recent champion from the school. Middle to tail end of last year, don't remember exactly, my memory has never been the greatest.
