my slick studio

22 May

As you know I recently got accepted to Vancouver’s One of a Kind Show and Sale and so I’ve been busy busy busy in my studio lately! I had to take some photographs of it for my OOAK application to give the jury a sense of my workspace… so I thought I’d share them here, in case you were also curious about where the magic happens day in and day out… Recently I submitted some artwork for a few call outs from one of my favorite publishing companies, Uppercase Gallery. They publish the most gorgeous magazine, make paper goods and unique bound publications (my favorite of which is the Shatner Show, proudly displayed on my bookshelf). One of the calls was titled “Mess is More.” In contrast the extremely clean shots posted above (a rare sight in my workspace), or the polished and almost sterile looking studio shots featured in most design magazines, Uppercase was instead encouraging artists and creatives to submit images of their messy, out of order studio spaces – the more piles and creative clutter in your workspace, the better!!! I was amidst a flurry of mail art making and book binding, so I snapped the above shot to send in as my submission. I have no idea if they’ll use this image of my studio… there has definitely been far messier days in there, but alas no documentation of it. If it doesn’t make the cut, it’s still a good exercise to try and get my work out there, however if I am accepted, it will be a big line on the CV and it will put a big smile on my face.

    Ok, so apparently I have to comment on every single post tonight. I love studio photos in general, and yours are great–both in “mint” and working condition. It’s very cool to have a peek at the space where you create all sorts of awesome stuff.

    […] friend Caren Gibb informed me of some awesome news… I’ll preface by reminding you about a post I did in May that featured photos of my home studio, one which captured it amidst projects in all of it’s messy glory. The reason for taking the […]
