Ah, the napkin sketch. I find beauty in it – it’s somehow intriguing to me. Perhaps it’s evaluating the thought process that went into it. I’ve been drawing “napkin sketches” since as long as I can remember. It started with creating little floor plans out of play-doh in kindergarten. By the time I was in first grade, I was drawing my own little “dreamy” floor plans. It must have been the influence of growing up with rolls of blueprints around as my mom spent late nights drawing furniture floor plans, lighting plans, etc at her drafting board. Thirty plus years later, I am still drawing floor plans!
We are still accepting submissions for our current month’s design challenge – please submit your living rooms for a free space plan! I’m looking forward to featuring the blog post – and I’ll need to start with a napkin sketch!
