Their six Skillshare classes are raging along, teaching kids all over the world.

Aaron’s first book titled “Pretty Much Everything” came out on May 17, 2016 on Abrams Books, which incredibly, is in its eighth printing. The DDC’s roster of DDC Merch is up to 280 products and growing! You’ll see those goodies at DDC merch tables from coast to coast or in their online shop. They pride ourselves on a high level of craftsmanship and quality that keeps them up late into the wet Portland night.
