Studio Tour

My studio is actually sort of clean for a change, so I thought I'd post pictures. I always like seeing where artists work. Like in this flickr stream by Brian Biggs.
Anyway, here's my decidedly less impressive studio.

A 2-part panorama of the whole deal:

What's left of the paper steamboat model I made whilst working on Ste-e-e-e-eamboat A-Comin'!. See the "BOOKS" link at the right for details.

Cool! I like seeing people's studios as well. Right now mine consists of my computer and my wacom tablet...but maybe someday I will be able to afford some studio space somewhere...(living in San Francisco doesn't make that cheap.)

Now that's a studio! How did you get Jaws' autograph?

About 6 years ago my only studio was a section of my kitchen technically zoned only for "breakfast nook," Bill. So this bedroom in our apartment does seem luxurious by comparison. Someday I want a big old barn with huge windows. Maybe a unicorn.

If I'm not mistaken, that Jill E. is Jill Esbaum, the author who wrote the book for which the paper steamboat model was made. Check out her website at jillesbaum.com.

I met Jaws (Richard Kiel) at a comic convention a couple weeks ago here in Philly, Andy. He's a very nice man, and every bit as big as you expect. Shaking his hand was like being offered a baseball mitt.

Very nice to see. Perhaps if I cleaned up my studio, I'll take a couple of photos as well.

Love all the little notes in the pics.

Is that a Shifflet Bros. Frankenstein sculpt??

Adam Rex said...

Everybody go check out Bobby Chiu's work. Like you don't know it already. But go check it out anyway, and thanks for visiting, Bobby!

No Joe, not a Shifflet sculpture. I'm not certain which Frankenstein you mean, actually. If it's the one behind the steamboat, then that's a cardboard stand-up of this painting.
It was an in-store display for my book.
If you meant this sculpture, then it's my own reference sculpt for the same book.

You know, that makes so much more sense than you getting a shark's autograph, though I preferred the mystery. Alas, my innocence is forever lost...
