Step into my office...

My work studio is pretty much up and running now. I'm very particular about my workspace. Still missing a drawing table and lots of lamps. At night I prefer turning on a bunch of floor and desk lamps, I really dislike office lighting. Or any kind of ceiling lighting actually. it sets my mood for working, and it seems to make the music sound better. Sofa bed + mattress = a place to nap for working into the night. I also like books. Or the smell of them, anyways. If you notice on the ledge above the sofa, a skateboard I painted a while ago. I would love to get back to doing some painting at some point. Sometime's drawing on something other than paper or canvas is satisfying as hell. 'Tactility' is the word of the day.

The nighttime security guard in this building speaks a bit funny, and my spoken Cantonese really sucks, but he noticed that I had not yet changed the business plaque downstairs to my name. So I came downstairs one night and realized he drew on my plaque for me. I thought that was pretty funny. I think I'll leave it up for a while.

Anyways, I'm located smack in the middle of the very busy Dundas Street between Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok. Ladies market is next door, and the area that sells all those deadly BB guns. I'm right upstairs on the 8th floor from the Stinky Tofu. You are welcome to drop by and say hello, so long as you bring some peace offerings (except stinky tofu). I'll accept food, drink, watches, dvds, shoes, and cute girls.

I agree about the drawing/painting, it's just nice to release your pent-up creativity and having something to show for it afterwards. At least I do :)

Here you are, uber gifted artist, and your walls are bare?! *laugh* Geez... I think we found your first canvas for when you get back to paiting :) I love giant canvas (aka walls)! I hear ya on the lighting thing, "My eyes! They burn!" My office is in the basement of my house (aka my cave). The ceiling lights have a dimmer switch on them. Nuff said. Ummm... book smell... ranks up their with fresh lumber smell and raw ginger root--the fragrance of the color yellow--smell. Happy new studio! Time to host a "gathering" to christen it :P

This is a nice light-filled space. Lamps are definitely more ambient than office lighting. If I ever get to come visit you, I'll bring you some bagels from NYC or do you prefer donuts? :)
