Studio Journal Entry #2: Back To The Drawing Board



I took a 3 day weekend to work on the Studio and pretty much wiped myself out doing so, but it's done. Made a few trips to Home Depot, Staples, and my neighbors house up the street to raid his workshop for supplies and any tools I didn't have. 
 I redid the flooring, the sub-flooring, finished the trim work, patched up some drywall areas, and even repainted the entire room. I returned all the Comic boxes and reworked the layout of the room. One of the problems about the old layout was I had a computer station separate from my drawing table and I found myself doing the up and down back and forth thing constantly when I'm referencing something or just needing the computer while I worked. A big waste of time. So I got rid of one of the two chairs and reconfigured the table and desk into one cohesive station. It's like a really cool drawing cockpit. Only one setback... the drawing table I was using, which was the one I had when I was in school back in the early 90's, decided to finally die in the moving process and let go of some of it's welds. "Well. I guess it was time for that new Drawing Table after all." 
 So here was my chance to make that drawing table I've always wanted. I broke down an old Dinning room table, used the top and the legs, made a few trips back to Home Depot, reworked it and used some cool hardware here and there. I added some features that I've been thinking about for awhile and just about finished it up Monday night. There are only some minor details on the room I need to finish up and some spaces left on the wall for some new pictures, but over all I'm really please with the way it came out. 
 Now that I'm 3 days behind schedule, I guess it's time to get back to work and try out the new digs. I'm so excited.
















Now that's a Drawing Table.
