About

I started making a button a day as a way to get back in the habit of doodling. Around 250 buttons in, I figured I should do something with 'em. Around 500 I had enough for a music video. I found "Kids" by The Frights off their "You Are Going To Hate This" album, and thought some punky buttons would be a good fit. Take a listen to their record!
