This is my studio, located in the corner of our kitchen in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We’ve lived here for seven years. I’ve done A LOT of work in this space and grown as an artist. I think it’s about time for an upgrade though! Our lease is up in July so I’m hoping we can find an apartment with an office space. Ben-David promises to cook more often if I get all of my stuff out of the kitchen. : )
Our cat, Milo usually hangs out with me while I work. He likes to steal my erasers and last week he stepped in cup of inky water and tracked little paw prints around the floor! He’s still good company, though, and a great inspiration.
On the walls, I have some art in nice flea market frames. An original sketch of Beast Boy by Tim Smith III , an autographed photo of Dolly Parton and an awesome drawing by Drew Rausch. On the other side, some postcards that I change out every so often.
Lots of pens and ink on this great side table my mom bought for me. I built the little shelf myself. On the wall is a postcard from Carl Titilo, one of my professors at the School of Visual Arts. I sent him a copy of my first book and he wrote me a really nice note. It’s always cool to thank your teachers.
There are so many new characters in the Skyclan Warriors manga. I have a lot of cats to keep track of in this trilogy. It helps to have a print of each character to refer to while I am drawing. It’s important to make sure your characters are consistent. BTW, the first book in the trilogy comes out July 5th!
