The Drawing Club is an illustration collective created to promote collaboration, community and creativity.
Lettie Jane Rennekamp and Cassandra Swan met in 2017 through their mutual admiration for each other’s work. They started a monthly drink and draw event at Paymaster Lounge, inviting friends like Michael Buchino to join them. It was there they discovered the power of collaboration, borrowed color palettes and their shared love of creative exploration. Paymaster staff christened them "the drawing club", and the name stuck. In 2018, Cass, Lettie and Buchino banded together to tackle illustration projects (like the piano they painted for Piano.Push.Play) as The Drawing Club.
Lettie is an artist working in Portland, Oregon, by way of Kentucky. She loves to draw vases, naked ladies, oak leaves, hippy-looking suns, moons, eyes, hands, a myriad of other iconography and some fancy handwriting.
Cass is an illustrator, designer and professor in Portland, Oregon. She is interested in illustration and design that create conversations and foster human connection.
Buchino is a single-image storyteller and principal at nope.ltd. He lives in Portland with a bike and a pencil.
