I made a little extra money last week from an illustration job, and I decided to use it to invest in a new desk. The decision came after spending three nights coloring an image, which was killing my back. I’ve been using a small student desk I bought from K-Mart five years ago, and it’s time for an upgrade.
Here’s the new desk:
It’s a deceptively simple table from Ikea. The thing I like about it is the legs, which can be adjusted to raise or lower the table to any height. Most office desks are a little too small for me, which causes me to hunch over the desk when I need to type. You may also notice that I have my monitor propped up by several phone books (and a dictionary) which is a very high tech way of raising the monitor to my eye level.
I’m using my old desk as a printer/scanner/storage station:
And while I’m giving the tour here’s my drawing desk:
This is the cleanest and most organized my art space has been in years. I just thought I’d take a picture and share it with before the inevitable clutter and chaos sets in (which should take about fifteen minutes).
