I later tweeted the photo of my work to him, telling him I went "Full-Samnee". I don't know if he got the joke, but he replied back with; "Nice! Keep it up, Jared! :)" so either way, still awesome!
Forgive me for the quality of the photo though; it was taken with my cellphone. Also I'm sure inking on a vertical surface with a low-ink brush pen probably doesn't help. Eventually I'll try to get a better photo, like when I actually have my pad here and not the classroom.
