I always get questions on my workspace, and seeing as I just cleaned it and it looks all pretty, I thought I would take you all on a little tour of the essentials and necessities of what I need to be a happy worker in this little area. :) 1. Cutting board.  Protects my drawing table, and the built in ruling lines are SO so helpful. 2. Skull. I’m always looking at it for reference, and it opens up for storage of my jewellery and some bones/feathers, which I also use for reference.  3. Grooveshark. I always need music! Right now it’s playing the sweet sounds of Beirut, which always inspires me to make something beautiful. 4. Pens and Inks. I’ve used one level of my wooden shelf from THIS post for keeping my nibs organized and from being broken. They fit so perfectly in the little glass tubes. I also have my real feather quill on the end, which I hardly use unless I’m feeling like I need to be dapper and classy, ie, never. 5. Good Lighting. My room seems too dim a lot of the time, so I use two lamps for the best possible lighting and to keep the light balanced, because I’m ocd about balance.  6. Ideas. I’m always pulling up random sketches from old sketchbooks and seeing if I can rework them. I pin up the ones that I know I want to revisit and develop more. 7. Inspiration. My inspiration always changes, but at the moment it’s this magazine editorial cut outs of women in leather and lace looking all beautiful-like. 8. Middle Earth. My original art framed map of Tolkien’s Middle Earth, simply because it keeps me happy. I’m obsessed with LOTR if you didn’t know that already. ;) 9. Almond Milk. Nom nom nom. 10. Art Goodies. Knife, scissors, pencils, brush, eraser, charcoal, sharpies, rulers, whatever I need. I like to use old jam jars because once you fill a bunch of them up it looks all nice and cluttery when everything else is neat. I love seeing workspaces of artists, especially ones that are so unlike mine, ones that are covered in paint and messy and cluttered, I always find it fascinating. Anyone want to show me theirs!?
