MugShot Monday ft. Matt Poland
Who is this guy? He is my good pal. We go way back. We also share the same passion for donuts. He kept begging for me to paint him a painting, and I said, "then get me some of your team gear and you have yourself a deal." So we traded. He gave me a team pullover... and I made him a mug instead! More my thing, ya know? And more functional. He is very excited to be a part of your Monday (or Tuesday at this point).. so hope you enjoy learning more about him and give him a follow!
