My drawing table at House, somehow I work best this way and I know I’m not the only one. I’ve never met an illustrator with a clean workspace. Let’s take a look at the essentials… the green handled cheapo brushes take care of dry brush and most other cruddy effects, the lone Winsor & Newton handles the delicate stuff. There’s plenty of blue things, I don’t know how long the banana’s been here, FW ink bottles, rulers, picture of my girl, a box of pens with a mini chip-clip and a hair covered kneaded eraser at the bottom corner and the ever present blank piece of paper to fill. I better get on that now. In a future entry we’ll view the other side of the table where we’ll go over tips on solid perspective and drying fruit at room temperature.
