My workspace is divided in two – I have my business-y computer-y side where papers can pile up and things stay relatively free of paint and glue and pencil shavings, and I have the artwork side where the color lives and nothing is safe.
I love hiding and stowing and tucking everything away in nooks and crannies, so you get things like this little guy (made by the lovely batty):
I also think it’s important to surround myself with beautiful things that inspire me – it’s so easy just to save intriguing images to a folder on my desktop, but then I never see them again. So, I’m slowly printing them all out and pinning them up where they can get into my brain a little more easily.
The tiny dwellings challenge was a lot of fun to think about (see the sentiment about nooks and crannies), but I think I need simplify my imagery a little more – work a little more graphically. What do you think? Do you prefer simple, graphic motifs, or more intricate, complex patterns?
