Working environment and schedule follow up

On Friday I answer a reader question about my working environment and schedule. There were lots of pictures and words, so if you missed it you might want to head over there and check it out. I mentioned in the post that there was a last minute addition to my home office/working area and I wanted to share that with you today. Well... I will share with you a heavily blurred image of it since I don't want to get into any trouble.

Previously, when working on monster stuff I would draw with my paper in my lap (I have drawn this way for ever it feels) or I would draw or paint at the opposite end of the desks from my computer. This has worked out fine until recently when my needs have begun to out grown this arrangement. Something larger and more ergonomic was needed to better facilitate my needs to paint and draw. Santa (my awesome wife) provided just want I was looking for this year and I have put it to immediate use...

 The new traditional work station for all my drawing and painting needs.

I have never been comfortable or like to work at an easel, a flat supported surface has always been my work environment of choice. I am sure the fact I have not painted traditionally until a year a go has a lot to do with that! This new drafting table allows plenty of room for lighting, reference, and for the actual piece I am working on. Still breaking it in, but I have successfully completed my first project at it and it has worked out marvelously. I don't know how I would have done it with out this addition to the office. Thanks, wife!!!

HOLY COW, this was the last post of 2012! How time flies! I will be back here on Wednesday for another exciting day on the blog and my first post of 2013! Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website:
