dear didO,

 
      Since 2015, we have helped defined looks, told stories, set moods, or simply given our sense of aesthetic to the world and it has returned to us the ability to illustrate, and do that for other people.

We’ve eschewed the boredom of maintaining a consistent process, so that our work is ever-evolving and constantly attempts to push the envelope, capturing the soul of spontaneity within a sense of surrealism and nostalgia.

We get to work with some amazing people, amazing clients; some clients, with no idea with what they want and even got to travelledfor said work. But best of all, we get to draw for a living; that is a weird thing to say — but it’s true. 

Hope you’re drawing your heart out, and realise that even when you’re begrudgingly drawing for an assignment that is due the day after, you sit down and realise that you’re loving every second of it.

Lots of love, 
Future me
