in the drawing room

in-the-drawing-room

My favorite part of do(odl)ing The Stew Book was writing about the people who were in it. I like knowing what makes creative people tick, and I enjoy even more putting those thoughts and details on paper.

So I'm going to keep rolling with it! For the next few months I'm going to host a weekly series here called "In the Drawing Room", in which you'll meet (or get to know better) some creative folks I find fascinating. They won't be traditional interviews, but doodled ones, with the kind of little details you'd find out in casual conversation over a drink or a cup of coffee. Hence the name "drawing room", which is the old fashioned term for the room in someone's home where people gather and get to know each other. To boot, the drawing room truly IS the drawing room in my house! It's the first place you walk into when you enter the front door. It used to be a living room until I realized we never used it as a living room, so I moved in and declared it my art studio.

I'll post the features on Tuesdays, just as I did with List it Tuesday. Hope I can stick it out a little longer this time ;) My first guinea pig will be in my drawing room this Tuesday -- someone who has influenced my creative style immensely. I hope you'll join us and help take care of that cake on the sofa while you're here!

count me in! I too love hearing the whys and wherefors of 'persons creative' - it helps me find my own way on this artsy path. clues to the puzzles, you know? :)

Oh this will be fun! I can't wait to see your interviews.

My daughter got rid of her living room too. Hers is now a classroom/craft room. People are too casual these days for a formal living room. It helps that she has a family (aka new living) room.
