My Office 2012
- Jul 11, 2012 9:37 PM
Just a fun post this time instead of a work related one. I always find it interesting when artists or people post pictures of their work spaces (be it just their desk or their room)
Been pretty busy with renovating and rearranging the house. Mom wanted to move my office down to the main floor so that it would be easier for me to get around the house.
We didn’t have money to put a floor in (had to rip the carpet out, as it was making the whole house sink it was so filthy and disgusting from 12 years of animals and teenagers/young adults. So we pretty much just painted the chipboard until we can afford flooring.
My office is a little bit crowded (I have way too much art stuff, sketchbooks, notebooks and work) but actually looks really nice (me being crazy for organization very much plays a part with that), the only thing I don’t like is that I no longer have my magnetic white boards where I would magnet up my character designs while I was working on pictures and comic pages.
There still some things that need to be done, as we’re getting rid of the sofa and the recliner because they’re filthy old and falling apart, but I kinda have to wait until I have enough money to replace them so they are still around (it seems that I’m always saving money for something x.x I guess it’s better then owing money for something though and collecting interest)
Also, it does indeed look nice, but everything in the office is in fact pretty old and has been collected over the coarse of 12 years so it’s not like I spent a fortune on it (except for that big as all heck art tablet which cost more than everything in this room combined) Even the computer is mostly hand me downs from when my brother updates his. Some from people moving and not able to take furniture with them and leaving it with/giving it to us, some from money collected when I had a job, some from money I made selling art) and although I don’t have my art posters or collectable figures and my huge ‘first drafting table’ that I just can’t bare to get rid of even when I don’t use it because of sentimental value (those all had to be moved to my bedroom because there’s no room for them down where the office is now) it’s still a personal collection over twelve years in the making (some things older as I still have a lot of stuff from when I was a kid, like the umbrella tree by the bearded dragon tank, which is actually a plant I brought home one day when I was 9 years old cause someone had thrown it in the trash and I felt bad for it cause it was still alive but people thought it was garbage) which isn’t that bad, seeing as my ‘office’ actually started out as just a desk and shelves my mom made for me out of extra wood we had.
