HOME v. AWAY: where to work?

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, May 5, 2017



Typically I work on my comics and illustration at home in my studio. I know I'll have everything I need on hand, for one. Also I hate and mistrust almost everyone and everything, as working in the service industry for the majority of my adult life has left me ...

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Dec. 16, 2016



What is the best atmosphere to create in? This applies to art, of course, but also to just about anything you might be working on independently.

Making Use of the Public Library

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, May 11, 2015



I live in a relatively small, suburban city that does not have an apparent central Art's District hub where creative energies flock like major cities. The closest areas for art inspiration are usually the laid back independently-owned tea shops or coffee lounges where local artists hang their art prints ...
