time, we’ve been guided by a few beliefs.
1 . We believe drawing is solid fun and a good thing to do, whether or not you are a
2 . We believe good art doesn’t need to be done in an atmosphere of professional

to what we do.

top ourselves. If you want to work with Dr. Sketchy’s, you’ll need this questing
