See how hard I am working! I especially love the clouds of plastic that loom about my studio (those are covered pieces in progress) Gives it an ethereal feeling, yes? No, just makes my space look messy. My studio is a little cave like. There is a skylight so light does come in but I don't have a window. It makes being in there feel timeless. It could be the afternoon or late at night and I wouldn't know the difference. It can drive me bonkers but most often it forces me to stay focused. See that book...that is one of the many books that I use for visual reference for my drawings. By the way I draw each piece individually. I don't trace or use stencils. All the drawings are done freehand. I have a huge pile of books that I have collected over the years that I use. This one is especially neat because it is super old. I love the yellowed pages and the illustrations in it are drawn so delicately.
