West plans to take his art a step further this summer with the help of mentor and former Celtic, Tommy Heinsohn. A noted artist himself, Heinsohn has inspired West to continue with his drawings.
“He’s always staying on top of me, not letting talent go to waste,” said West. “He’s been motivational for me. When the season ends, he’s supposed to take me down to a studio, show me his work, give me some pointers, so I’m looking forward to that.”
Heinsohn says West has expressed in interest in attending art school and believes his dedication will help him succeed.
