An artist who practices or works in drawing may be called a draftsman or draughtsman.

[close] We made a Goodreads profile to start a book trading project at the studio. It's pretty simple, bring a art/creative type book to the studio, show it to a employee for approval, & trade it for a book we have in stock. You can find a list of books we have on our bookshelf. This could be an inspiration to begin a Vault Studio book club.
