Background story:

"I started doodling when young and haven't stopped since.
I do it because I love doing it and there's little else I can do."

Current projects:
"They are all top secret!" =)

Future dream:
"The football team I support winning the league
and to continue drawing and being involved in cool projects."

Favorite artist:

"Dom Del Torto (but only because he's quite tall)"

Message to young artists:

"Keep doodlin' all day and all night
and things will turn out alright!"
