A New Work Space

15 Jan

I think it would be fair to describe me as “well nosy”.

I have a bit of a thing for looking up other designer and illustrator’s work spaces on the internet. I think this developed through me spending hours and hours sat on my own in my house all day drawing patterns, imagining other people sat in their houses alone all day drawing patterns. Surely there are others, no?

When you have a bit of a hunt around, you can find loads of pics of where independent designers work. I think it’s really interesting, especially when you compare it with the kind of work they do…

When I left my full time job six months ago, in an effort to make my fortune whilst sitting around in my pyjamas at home all day, the only place in our little house that seemed a practical space for me to work in was our spare room. This room was previously painted a curious shade of dark brown from before we moved in. We have since given the entire room a well deserved re-vamp with new built in cupboards and all sorts. It is about a million times better now – thank goodness!!

Here’s some pics as pay back for all the other photos I have been pouring over:

This shot is from my pin board (which is still pretty sparse at the moment as I like the fabric so much, I never want to cover it up!) – I made this from cork floor tiles, wood and fabric. It fits into the little alcove by my desk perfectly – hurrah!!

Some little friends to keep me company on the mantlepiece:

That’s it. Bit of a random post I know, but I thought you might appreciate it if you are as nosy inquisitive as I am!
