    "If one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling" - Paul Walker


    Painted this initially because i felt he died too young. then i was told about this written by Vin Diesel:


    ‘When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house… ‘I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs. ‘His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son?… She said yes, but you lost your other half…


    Ive decided id really like to find a way to give this painting to him. if anyone knows how i can make this happen please let me know.


    It's Freehand Airbrushed on just under A1 high quality paper.

    That is a great portrait , He will be missed in the roles he played .

    Oh go to Vin's FB page and share it on there and ask him if he would like it.

    thank you.

    ive tried, the only thing i can do is send a message which hasn't been read yet, i've also sent messages to the other fastnfurious cast members asking if they could help, same deal basically.

    i've also got this pic on instagram and i've tagged them in it. i know it may take a little while before i get a response as they are all grieving and probably dont want to be dealing with the public right now. but hopefully i get this to him eventually.

    thanks guys. yeah i too am hopeful to pass it on. if not to him (cos of his celeb status) then at least to a family member would be nice.
    but i'll wait, they will all be grieving at the moment.

    Beautiful tribute. So very sad for such a handsome and talented actor's life to end so young. His family, friends and fans will miss him terribly. Good luck on getting this to Vin.
