Proposal accepted!

Saying that makes me feel so much more like a professional artist. I'm excited to see how it goes.
Hello Lyn,

Today I was met with an interesting drawing assignment and was wondering if I could include Luna Coffee in the participation of completing it.

Basically, the assignment calls for the acknowledgment of location in the creation and eventual display of the drawing(s) we decide to do. My idea would be to cover one (or more) tables in the shop with a piece of thick strathmore drawing paper, then with a piece of charcoal paper facing the drawing paper. This way, when customers come and sit down with their coffee and companions, any interaction they have with the table (setting down their coffee cup, hands, elbows, spills, etc.) will be recorded on the drawing paper beneath. Thin dark table clothes could be layered over the top to conceal the drawing paper and keep the shop looking uniform.

I would propose to either come in before the shop opened or the night before to set up the 'undercover installation'. If there is a time when the Barista is closing or opening shop while customers are still absent, that would be ideal. Then the following day, if you're willing, we could replace the dark table clothes with clear, the effects of the day could be on display on the actual surface that it happened. As a final piece, I would take the final table markings to collage and frame as a gift to the shop for your participation.

If you would be willing to participate, I have a 2 week deadline (4/28) to complete the project. To come in sometime next week, weekend, or early the following week would be ideal. Also, if you have any suggestions or ways that it would work better, I would love to hear them. Also, I would probably need to come in before the planned date to take measurements on the tables, etc.

Please let me know what you think, and thank you for consideration.
