Exactly one year ago, using a mix of viral marketing and media outreach, we introduced celebrity portrait painter Jamie Wilkinson to a whole new audience. Shortly after, he signed an exclusive retail contract with memorabilia store Fan Cave. What a wonderful 8 week campaign that was - we miss the creativity we shared during those winter afternoons.
Seeing Jamie's relationship with Fan Cave develop has provided ample compensation, though. This week, he tweeted an image of 6 x world snooker champion, Ronnie O'Sullivan, proudly holding his latest artwork. Wow, just look at that!
Jamie's remarkable art was available at a live signing and Q&A with Ronnie at Fan Cave, Essex. Jamie revealed, "Ronnie loves my paintings and kept a print of my work for his collection," admitting that, "[he] said my artwork of him is the best he has ever seen, and he's seen a lot, apparently."
