The Modern Art Horse

Final Project for Design Drawing course at the University of Notre Dame, Spring 2015

Work in Progress; included are preliminary sketches and concepts for the product so far

Proposal:
The drawing bench, commonly known as the art horse or donkey, has long been a staple in every art studio. I hope to improve the design and create a product that can:
- Promote better posture
- Eliminate the prospect of sciatic pain
- Be equipped with an adjustable back for the canvas
- Provide some sort of receptacle for tools
