Work, Life & the Studio
posted:
I have made a lot of changes in my work and life this fall. I began teaching at Sheridan, a huge leap for me in terms of lifetime goals and also a big commute. It's a major adjustment to make, but the experience has been very positive, so far. It is also a reason why I haven't posted much work lately. I have been super busy, assignment wise, so look for some upcoming posts about what's on my desk and what I have been doing this fall.

I was happy to have my work included in the latest Work/Life annual, published by Uppercase. They are based in Calgary and put out some fantastic and inspirational collections of designers, artists, and illustrators, and Uppercase magazine.

I was asked to create an illustration of my studio space, something that I designed and built myself. Since I spend most of my time in the studio, it is something that holds a central focus in my life.  Having the right place to work, to be creative is critical to my success as an artist. Everything has to fit together.

I put a compass into the drawing, because I have one painted on my studio floor. I like to think it keeps me focused. Here's how it looks, if you haven't seen my previous post about the studio, check it out here.
