This Post Will Go Down In History

You heard it here first. Other than the magnificent John DeFaro, be sure to watch the career of artist Asad Faulwell. One day soon, Faulwell will be as famous as some of the biggest names in the art world.

How do I know?

He is 37 years old and tremendously accomplished. Read his resume below. He’s also gorgeous and very married.

I asked Asad why he is so successful. I really wanted to know what makes certain artists popular and fruitful, while other creative souls can’t get arrested. It was a question that holds true for writers, actors, singers, and comics. Asad said it’s mostly, “Luck, connections, a business sense, determination and dedication. Unless you are willing to put yourself out there all the time, nothing will happen.”
