Yesterday I spent all day, and I really mean ALL day, putting together this mission-style office furniture from Staples. This is my computer/illustration workspace, a smallish room (130 square feet) with a sloping ceiling and a little porch where the employees can go out to refresh themselves (see employee below).
Below is the setup in my second studio, the moku hanga room. This is just one wall in a large room (200 square feet) that has two windows, a large storage closet, and plenty of space to put up more tables when I want to work large.
Even with the two windows, the room is a bit dark because of the large trees outside, so I'm experimenting with lighting options. These lamps appeal to me because the shades diffuse the light, making it very even. Right now the bulbs are incandescent, but I'm going to try some compact fluorescent bulbs to see if I can get a less yellow light. Does anyone have lighting tips to share?
