Inside the Artist/Illustrator’s Studio

I always find it interesting as an illustrator to see the various work spaces of fellow artists.  We are very similar in that most of our work is done in solitude, we enjoy the work we do, and we are inspired by each other.

However our differences show in our work spaces and how we actually do the work… the tools we use, the reference, and the decor… of course the decor! 😉 Just kidding… most of us work amoung stacks of art boards, supplies, paper and books.  I know for myself, I work much better if my space is organized somewhat and if things are getting out of hand, I have to take time to get it straightened out before I can really dive into that next project I need to illustrate.

I decided to take you on a mini-tour of a few artist’s studio spaces.  I will share some of my own studio images as well as several other artist’s.  We will start with mine…

Lorraine Dey’s Studio

Since I do the majority of my finished work on the computer as digital paintings in Adobe Photoshop or vector art in Adobe Illustrator, my studio is predominantly based around my computer set up.  I also have a small art table for my initial sketching and pencil roughs, (although I usually sketch while sitting in my recliner or in a beach chair if possible!)

Fine artists like Todd White paint at their easels while digital artists sit at a computer for hours.

The studio space is one that truly reflects the style and personality of the artist. They range from the eclectic and fun, to the sophisticated and organized. Check out some of the photo links below for more artist’s studios…

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed the tours. 😉
