From: Spotterup.com; "One of the other coolest things we got to do is link up the great Mr. Robert Duvall with Evan. When I first spied Evan’s painting of Lt. Kilgore, modeled after Shepard Fairey’s painting of Obama, I thought I have to get the actor and retired Teamguy hooked up. Enter my buddy AJ, a writer for Spotter Up. I have to give him credit for getting the very gracious actor and this artist together."
Robert Duvall liked my rendition of him from the movie, Apocalypse Now. He got a couple prints from my website, signed one and sent it back to me. To say I'm stoked would be an understatement. I will give it to a legit veteran's organization that takes care of the kids of some of our teammates that were killed doing "commando stuff". Thanks Mr. Duvall, that made my year!
Spotterup, a great blog, made Mr. Duvall aware of this piece and he really liked it. So much so, he commissioned a painting, which I finished and just shipped off to him.
