Hi Aaron, I find your artwork absolutely amazing. Your backstory as an animator for Disney is fascinating as well. Love those films with Mulan and Beauty and the Beast being two of my favorites. I to started drawing while very young but unfortunately lost interest before High School. I also just turned 45 years old recently and have been drawing again for two years. I discovered your youtube channel a few weeks ago and will definitely keep watching. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.
By the way. Could you please let me know where you purchased your bag.
