Here's are my caves where I spend probably 90% of my time . I realized that when I see an artist presentation my favorite part of the presentation is when they show their studio area. I cant really explain why.
First shot is my space at my apartment. I somehow managed to fit 3 desks, a bed and a corner chair in my room. It's great having the 3 desks though. To the left I have a small desk where I read and work on thumbnails, (with a small fridge right behind it) then the computer desk and then the drafting table. and of course my book shelf, I just filled it up. I love books. Piled on top of the books are countless posters and orignal art that I need to get framed, from George Pratt, Sam Weber, James Jean, etc. I mostly work on personal projects here.I also have to cabinets on both sides of my desk filled with mediums and materials. How many coffee mugs can you find?And this is where I'm doing most of my work nowadays. I have a studio through the VCU Communication Arts program and it's great! I share this room with Leslie Herman, thats his desk on the left in my wannabe panaramic shot. this is just one room in the small building. Also in the studio are friends Raven Herrara, Jenna Chew, Stanley Rayfield, Geary Day, Guy Parkhomenko, Brianna Hertzog, and Duncan Robertson. I take up most of that shelf with different papers/canvas, cameras and books
I had my wall covered in inspirational work from my heroes, but I just find it less distracting with a blank wall; it's easier for me to zone out while working. It's been really nice to have a studio away from the living space, and also really great to be with friends/artists for critiques and to feed off of. I definitely feel very fortunate to have 2 studio areas, and really trying to take advantage of it while it lasts!!! If your ever near either of these places feel free to stop by, borrow some books, draw, chill, etc. Company is always welcome
