I met a wonderful woman in 1997 who I soon became very good friends with. Her name is Anne Abernathy, or better known as Grandma Luge. She is a five time Olympian. She commissioned me to design something for the bottom of her luge. This is the image I created. It was featured on an IBM ad during the Olympics. For the next couple of Olympics I created images for Anne and the Virgin Island Winter Olympic Team.
Here I was, back stage with Jimmy Buffett, Raliegh Warner (the man that pushed it through the Virginia red tape and who asked me to create the design) and his daughter. It was an amazing evening. We presented him with his very own plate. He then went on stage and said, "Virginia, you now have your OWN license to chill!" The crowd cheers and I smiled from ear to ear.
