So I got inspired to make this studio from @_icy_hot_ from his latest project.
I don´t care if you wanted to be invited or not. This is a serious matter.
Please spread the word.
What I want to do is make the world a better place for kids.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would help out.
Also, I'm sorry if you didn't want to be invited.
