Desks are the new Coffee Shops
While I was in Montreal, Jon had a lot of school work to do. So, sometimes I'd sit on the futon in his office and draw draw draw. This is the view of the corner of his desk, looking out the window at the building behind his apartment. And there is a vine.
I guess posting pictures of your desk is very cool nowadays. Here are some examples, Frederik's desk and the On My Desk blog.
I'll give you a little tour of my desk. It sits in the corner of my bedroom, and you can see I took this photo while I was working on this painting. I have my little Goblin Self Portrait on the wall, so I don't forget what I look like while I paint. Easier than a mirror. There is a solar system mobile I got in France when I was 16, hanging from my lamp. Under that you can see my South African princess Barbie. And then there is the painting I did of Jon in the corner. I don't just surround myself with my own work, I have some other better known artists hanging in my room, too.
Under my desk is this cool little cart I got from IKEA, I call it my Aht Caht. It holds a bunch of paper and supplies, and rolls out so I can put my pallate on top of it while I work. And you can see a bit of my bookshelf, and my lovely plant I named Courtney Cox Arquette. No relation to the actress.
