ABOUT Dabs Myla:
A lot of the time when we explain to people what we do and how we work they say..."Man..you work together, and you are a couple! I'd end up killing my girlfriend/boyfriend if we collaborated on everything we did!" I guess we are pretty lucky...two peas in a pod!
Two crazy, work-a-holic, mad dorks in a pod!
After years of living, painting walls and working together we have only become closer, stronger and even more in sync. Every day we wake up, paint all day...and keep each other entertained with constant chatter and stupid jokes. Who could ask for more out of life!!
We are both originally from Melbourne Australia, and have been living and working in Los Angeles for the past four years, soaking up the sun and chaos that surrounds us.
