Great webcast as per usual guys! I tried like crazy to find that Cartoonists #2 brush that Matthew uses, from Kyle’s Brush site,…but I’m afraid that the brush must not be available any longer.

What a cool strip too. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Oh no! We’ll have to check on that brush! If it is unavailable then I double want it!

Thank you
