Today was the last day of the Drawing Culture pitch on Shop Street for a while (if only because of the weather!). I will though be posting updates as I go through all of the drawings that lovely participants have contributed over the last while, so there’ll be plenty to uncover on here while it tips it down outside.
What I’d like to talk about today is those lovely participants. In the course of asking people to join in the project activities, add to communal drawings, share their thoughts, doodle in my little books, I’ve met the most fascinating and brilliant people. From the man who came over today just to have a great nerdy chat about pens, to the quiet but amazingly free doodlers, to the absolutely delightful woman that sat with me for a good while today, drew, chatted, and gave me some shells(!), this project has provided an abundance of wonderful little interactions.
It’s been fascinating and fun to see how drawing can create a friendly atmosphere and its own little community. Here’s to more drawing in the world!
