I’ve always drawn, I remember sitting outside the local library when I was a kid with my sketch book. I managed to tackle digital drawing properly in December 2015 when my dad told me to try an iPad app (everything else digital was so weird and disconnected) I produced my first “real” digital drawings in January 16 when my fellow DT at Outlawz didn’t have any images to work with for the month so I did some. I opened my shop in February 2016
