Awesome IZ Fan Art!

Amazing IZ fan art made by Michael Volpicelli! Here’s what he said about this portrait:
iz_typography“I made his portrait using words from his songs. I felt like by doing that it was not just a “picture” but something more to share his thoughts, his art/passion, and his feelings. Hope you Enjoy!”

Mahalo Michael!
