I'm a big fan of seeing other people's workspaces. Fellow artists especially. Below are unstaged panoramic views of mine, in it's current state. Below I have attempted to breakdown some of it's more distinct features to note. 

View #1: 

1. That's my shirt slung over the chair. It can get pretty stuffy in the studio, so chances are I will be in various stages of undress. (I'm currently writing this sans pants).

2. That's a bin where I keep all of my CALARTS handouts and extra lesson plans. I don't know where else to put it.

3. Supply drawer that houses my most used/favorite tools. The top of this drawer is currently being taken over by 3 year old and his "art projects".

4. Huckleberry Hound, Darkseid and Doctor Orpheus standing vigil over ancient answering machine and long past mail that required my immediate attention.

5. Stacks of movies and comics awaiting me to look at.

6. My "on deck" folders of current work that usually travels with me throughout the week.

7. Some inspirational  Denis Bodart drawings.

8. 4 color printer proofs from my favorite NEW GODS issue(s).

9. PAPER!!!

10. Project folders of current projects/jobs in development.

11. Reference books.

12. Old, used up pens...but not used up enough to throw out. Good for inking hair texture or drybrush.

13. Kamandi custom figure figure given to me as a gift from Deane Aikins.

14. Kirby essentials within reach.

15. Reference materials: buildings, inking techniques and color.

16. Markers!!! (those that haven't dried up yet). Cools on top, Warms shelf below.

17. Kirby pages to stare at and be inspired/intimidated by.

18. Post it notes reminding me which job(s) are due immediately.

19. A stool for my short, muppet-like legs.

20. An envelope on deck for post office.

21. Memories/Night Terrors.

22. My (comic related) books that made the cut and not storage bound (yet).

23. IDW Artist's Editions where all my paychecks go.

24. My broken Herman Miller Aeron chair I can't afford to replace.

25. My work satchel AKA "Go Bag" (just like Jack Bauer from 24).

26. I guess I forgot a 26

27. Pillow for when my dog keeps me company (he usually opts for the couch though).

28. TMNT reference I was using (of my own drawings).
