Founder’s Story

NY Drawing Booth is the nexus of founder Elke Reva Sudin’s love of drawing, technology, and social engagement. In 2014, frustrated by a career in art that involved less and less actual art-making, Elke started looking for outlets that enabled her to draw as much as possible. As mobile technologies evolved, she combined new creative tech with her passion for drawing flash-portraits. It didn’t take long before Elke assembled a team of illustrators who could match her sophisticated speed and style and NY Drawing Booth was born.
