What has the Canadian singer and record producer The Weeknd been up to? Well, the songster has just changed his Instagram photo to a fan’s drawing of him. He made the change after the drawing went viral.
The drawing itself – which is more of a caricature of the songster whose birth name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye – is not new. It had been made in 2017 and shared at the same time. But it didn’t gain much traction online.
This year, however, a different user shared the drawing and it went viral almost immediately, encouraging the Canadian to adopt it for his profile picture on the picture-sharing platform.
The Weeknd changed his profile picture to the fan drawing of him without comment. The move pleased many online users, who commended him for encouraging an artist’s creativity.
By the way, now and again, artists sketch celebrities and their sketchs go viral, but it is rare for a celeb to adopt an uncommissioned sketch of him as his profile picture.
