The Sheik is one of those characters that reminds me why I love wrestling so much. There have been many notable ‘Sheik’ characters in wrestling’s history, like the Original Sheik and of course the Iron Sheik (he’ll make you humble!), and now this Sheik who has become an international star. He has been an NWA World Heavyweight Champion and a Pro Wrestling Zero 1 World Heavyweight Champion, and is known for his physical and often bloody matches.
I was really honored when he reached out to me about doing his portrait. I’ll never get tired of World Champions getting in contact with me!
