Every so often I take shots of my studio space on a whim. Below are photos documenting almost five years of it. In late 2009, we had the existing carport enclosed, and it became my studio. The first photo shows the studio right after the remodel.

One of the assistants quickly moved herself in.

This is the usual state of the work table:

As you can see, the table was first pushed against the wall…

Having limited space, I turned it sideways in hopes of getting more storage area.

And the space fills quickly. And here is the other dog keeping watch:

The next month, Aesop’s Fables would completely take over the space

A few months later, when most of the Fables were nearing completion, with furry assistant:

I had some guests over in May, and one of them captured the state of my table at that time. Not too bad.

2013’s main project was Carnival Discardia, and much of the source material can be seen piled up here, as well as Cleo looking cautiously into the mess:

I REALLY like boxes, sometimes dangerously so:

2014

The pile along the far wall really started to get out of control, and this was when it was fairly easy to walk through:

And here is the studio as it is today. I added a new shelving unit on the far wall that helped solve the issue of the ever-growing pile. The pile under the table constantly threatens to spill out into the walking/working area and many drawers don’t close due to being packed full of stuff. But for such a small space, it has been serving nicely as a studio.

    I love it, as long as you are comfy working in this space, and continue to be productive go for it.
    I find that having my supplies all around me helps with the creative process 🙂
    this (supposed) mess is what inspires you Scott.

      Thanks Kathleen! One of my rules regarding clutter is that I must have at least a clear escape path to the doors!! 😉

    Love it. I will refrain posting any images of my the interior of my shed, which I hope someday will be a studio.

      Thanks Greg, and hope that your shed will soon be a studio as well. How orderly it remains, I’ll leave up to you!

    Now I don’t feel so bad about the messy state of my own studio. This also inspires me to post pics of mine.
