I love peoples work spaces, especially artist studios. To see what makes them tick, their inspirations, how they organize (so that I can learn how to do a better job of it), etc.
About once or twice a year I'll reorganize and "situate" everything. Usually during the beginning of spring and of fall. Summer and winter are my busiest months so this makes sense. I have decided to get a bit more comfortable with the space since we probably won't be moving any time soon.
And to my fellow artist friends, I tried to get at least one of the pieces I've purchased up on my wall. You all inspire me so much, and I am deeply grateful for your companionship on this journey. :)
Shall we begin the tour? Okie doke.
|My corner. What I see right when I walk into the studio. The adjacent corner is Brian's bookshelf and weights.
|The drawing table. All crafting and art making happens here. Truly, I usually only have one piece out at a time, even if I'm working on more than one. I'm already pretty scatterbrained....having more than one piece out would demand too much.
|Close up of my barrier against Talor jumping from the drawing horse, to this spot, just to get onto the drawing table. It also brings to my side some of my 3-D references for foreshortening/poses.
|A new addition to the studio. My lil' "Cheerful Blessings" spot. It's to cheer me up and remind me of all the blessings in my life. Sunshine fairy compliments of James Browne.
This is also where I process orders.
|On the way out are all of my reference and manga books and storage for craft/art supplies I use very little.
