The photo above was posted by /u/uti24 to /r/ArtFundamentals to show a year's worth of work. It is an fine example of the dedication and tenacity of our community. While we may make a point of avoiding grinding, we still put in a great deal of work and mileage - but every bit of it is put to good use.
Though I'm the one who's written the lessons, who runs the website, who makes the videos and who manages the subreddit and discord server, Drawabox has always been about the community that's gathered around it. It started off as /r/ArtFundamentals on Reddit, back in August 2014, and gradually expanded into the drawabox.com website in March 2015 as a response to members of the community wanting to give something back. Turned out that reddit had policies against people being paid for moderating a subreddit, so building the website was essentially a way around that, and it came along with the patreon campaign which still supports my efforts to this day.
Much later, in October 2017, a student by the name of Jasper (who's since moved to Pasadena, CA to attend the same school as me - Concept Design Academy) opened an unofficial Discord chat server. After I poked my head around and found myself impressed by how it was being run, Jasper offered to hand it over. With that, another arm of the community came to be.
