I have become a great admirer of the Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast blog, and especially of their artist interviews. They are simultaneously personal, informative and informal… and often there is an exciting peak into the artist’s studio too. Imagine my surprise when I realized that my own studio does not look so very different from other artist’s/illustrator’s studios! Could it be we are all from the same tribe?
Here’s a paragraph I used recently to describe my working space…
Aspiring book illustrators, my Muse and I work and play hard in our eleven-by-eleven foot studio, where the sign on the door reads, “You Are Entering The Room Of Forgetting.” We paint mostly in watercolor these days, with pen & ink and colored pencils on fine papers. Our second favorite place is the garden, so we stay connected through a big window that overlooks the trees and flowers… and also offers a view of my neighbor’s dog, Riley, who inspires us with his great JOY.”
Lots of the pictures we make in the studio can be seen on this blog, and on my website.
Thanks for stopping by!
