On the Drawing Board – a ‘Pay to Play’ Exercise


I have a bad feeling in my colon about the following idea. But as I’m listening to my spleen these days, let’s give it a try.

My sketchbook is filled with drawings – made in 45 seconds or less – of pieces of furniture that are at some early stage of development. Some have been revised a few times. Most are just raw thoughts.

But I’d like to use these sketches to encourage you to try your hand at a 45-second sketch.

So here’s the deal. I’ve posted this drawing in our forum here.

If you want to discuss the design, you have to post a 45-second sketch of a piece (in your own hand that shows some effort). Post a drawing and we can talk.

If I (or anyone else) wants to comment on your design, then we’ll have to also post a new drawing.

It could be fun. Or it could go nowhere. It’s up to you.
