dave didn’t want to share his real art talent because it’d be “lame” or “too much like bro’s”, which is why he drew sweet bro and hella jeff in such a shitty style with so much over sharpening it put a 1000% zoomed in picture to shame.
he also improved his photography over the years and takes good pictures even if they are hipster-esque and of obscure things.
however, he gradually grew up to get used to the fact that, yeah, he could draw and use a camera (only after fiddling around with it enough), which is why the only thing he ever considered after high school was going into art college (for multi mediums and photography).
he actually sketches a lot in his free time and probably has one too many sketch books and nice pens and pencils (that he would cry over if he lost) in his room to even be healthy.
he’s actually pretty embarrassed when it comes to showing his real art off.
to go along with the fact that he thought drawing was “lame” when he got such praise for sbahj, he also stuck to rap for the fact that it was “cool” and his brother praised him for his skill at it when he was younger.
however, dave actually has a pretty decent voice. too bad he doesn’t let his singing get past the house or john.
