Zayn has always had a thing for fan art, using fans' drawings and creations for his Twitter avatar and Instagram posts. And, as it turns out, he's been printing out them out, too.

The boy bander-turned-sexy-R&B-dude has been printing out the work of his talented fans and sending them back via snail mail, along with a handwritten note a la Taylor Swift circa Christmas 2014 (never forget Swiftmas).

Malik has been getting the tiny masterpieces set on canvas and then shipping them back, much to the surprise of the artists.

Not many people outside the fandom have taken notice (shout-out to Zayn fan @zillert101 for giving me the heads-up), but Twitter is slowly catching wind of Zayn's generosity. 

Here's Italian artist Erika opening Zayn's gift:

The singer also has an "Art" photo album on Facebook dedicated to his fans drawings of him. I can't wait to see how he surprises other artists!
