Neighbors And Friends Featured Artist of the Week:

James Ruff

Hello my name is James Ruff and I'm an artist and a hobbyist in most cases. I'm pretty awkward and I can do good things with my hands. Currently, I'm preparing to release a project called Mathematician in late 2017. It's a story about a teen whose accelerated skills in mathematics lands him in an outlandish adventure that will test basic principles of morality.
