Over the next few years Scooby hopes to improve to the extent that he may be able to complete a foundation course in Art and then on to an Art Degree. His ambition is to study in San Francisco, study graffiti and murals and work on large graffiti murals such as those created by Die Dixons or Nychos. Finally the dream would be to open a gallery in SF or LA. Scooby
