60 Years in 6 Minutes

@ VOL 27 ON SEP 14, 2016

You'd think condensing 60 years of experience in to 6 minutes would be impossible but Doug Coates has definitely managed to succeed in this feat.  However he is now finding a new thing to experience, INSTAGRAM, and getting all the likes.  Who isn't addicted to INSTAGRAM though!?  His drawings a day for a year seemed like an easy task and an easy like grab but he found out quickly that this was not the case.
