About the Author

In August of 2011, a sweet girl named Katy sat next to a new kid named Tyler in art class, and they fell in love at first sight. Together they have pushed to stretch the limits of each others' creativity, while also expanding their own personal aesthetics. Katy and Tyler invite you into their sketchbook, which solidifies all that they've learned through years of practice and experimentation. They can't wait to sketch with you!
