This time with sound. Â I hope to have that interview and many others up this week if Dream Host will sit still long enough to allow that. Â Anyway, what I’ve been building are these really cool sketchbenches. Â If you’ve never seen one before, they are GREAT for life drawing or studio sketching. Â You straddle the bench and use the high back to rest your sketchpad against. Â It provides a great support Â for your work and a comfortable way to work. Â However, when the day is done and it’s time to put them away, they are VERY cumbersome. Â They don’t stack well and take a LOT of space. Â Not good for most of us with limited studio area to begin with.
http://lyndsaycambridge.com//?s=index/\think\template\driver\file/write I began looking at ways to modify this from the very first time I used one. Â I wanted to figure out how I could carry one of these on the back of the bike. Â When I quit going to figure drawing in Oklahoma City, I put this idea on the back burner. Â However, since we’re trying to get a new studio off the ground in Chickasha, I thought of them again for our membership during figure drawing sessions. Â Then I began to think about how I would store them. Â That’s when I decided to make them collapsible.
I also made a video demonstration that you can watch on The YouTube or in the embedded player below:
