  • Welcome to My Site...

    My name is Mike Sheehan. I will be posting all my educational info here along with sketchbooks, design and illustration work.

    I'll link art tutorials and events.

    You can read a brief bio below. The website name comes from my obsession with drawing and painting my experiences and how I feel that this can be valuable to students whether you're a painter, digital artist or illustrator.

    It's all about fundamentals, no matter what kind of work you want to do.
