DRAWL! is a video series created by New Times and all-around renaissance man Robbie Pfeffer that focuses on the oddball experiences that make life in a band interesting. By mixing first-person storytelling with animation, DRAWL! hopes to show that these artists’ lives can be just as engaging as their music.
