“Finalized this pastel Ben Roethlisberger tribute today! Ben was so nice and a true class act. So happy he loved it. He said that it was, “So awesome” like 20 times, and his eyes and face lit up! So happy to share my talents with him and thank him personally for just being Big Ben!” — Tempy Moore.
“I taught myself how to draw from a very young age. I love adding details to pieces like this. This is probably my best piece to date. I learn something new every drawing still always learning. This is chalk pastel on Museum Ampersand Board. Took me approximately 600 hours on and off, mother of 2 teens & grade school art teacher.”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much to Ben for this moment. I have been a HUGE fan since his rookie year. My dream has always been to meet him and the Main Line Autograph event helped that finally come true. I was so nervous to actually meet him all I could say is, “hey”, Lol. But I will have the pictures and autograph to last a lifetime. My fiance, Jordan and I are so thankful. These will be going in our Steelers room! Once again, thank you Ben for making a dream come true.” — Heather Hickman.
