The Drawing Board LLC was founded in Oregon on July 18, 2011. It is a one-man operation headed by new Corvallis resident Mike Wiener. The guiding philosophy is to Begin Where You Are. That is, with years of experience and almost zero capital.
In March of 2012, we moved down the hall into a larger space, with a studio in the back and big picture windows. We now rent the studio space to local artistis (currently Jennifer Lommers), and will begin in 2014 to rent the storefront space to artists on a monthly basis, for shows and pop-up shops.
The Drawing Board is really an experiment for a new kind of business model, evolving in a time of online discounters and big box stores: Full Service Order Counter. Like the Sears/Roebuck counters of a past era, we listen to our customers to figure out exactly what they need, and then handle the ordering. We believe people still want to ask questions when they shop, and get knowlegeable, friendly service.
Our guiding mission is to get more people making art!
