BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- An East Bay artist who's also a huge Warriors fan is following his passion. Yani Teichner lives at his mother's house, where he's transformed a bedroom into a studio. He's spent hours creating wearable, limited edition, non-fading, signed prints of the Warriors starters.

Teichner drives for Uber and uses every square inch of the car for advertising space. He believes in serendipity. Klay Thompson recently climbed in the back of his car as Uber customer, where he saw Teichner's shirts.
