Remember "Dariu5"? He's the eight-year-old Deadmau5 fan from Calgary who started posting daily drawings of the electronic music producer's signature "Mau5head" mask on Twitter in a bid to meet up with him.

Over the holidays, Dariu5 got his wish, heading backstage before Deadmau5's Dec. 28 performance at the Edmonton Expo Centre as part of the Kocheda Winter Music Festival.

As Deadmau5 wrote on Instagram, "Darius is possibly the most stoked kid on the planet."

To celebrate the completion of his 81-drawing quest, Dariu5 shared this final drawing on Twitter (with the help of his father Xerxes):
