scribscrubz is a  feature where we capture your favorite local and national acts by putting pen to paper. If you see a hand furiously sketching in a crowd, that might be us, come say hi (we’re nice, I think!).  If you’re interested in more artwork from Louis, check out the Squishy Sandwich Art Facebook Page & Tumblr page.
