Drawing inspiration from Where They Draw

Need some inspiration? Think you’re the only one whose work space is a mess? Or maybe it feels like no one else is as big a neat-freak as you are? If so, we recommend bookmarking Where They Draw, a blog that showcases the workspaces and tools of artists. Many of the people featured work on cartoons, illustrations, and underground comics, so their offices are ideal for scrutinizing. We were drawn (ouch!) to the tools and ephemera that the subjects have collected, not just on their work tables, but on the shelves and walls around them. It gives some insight into how people find inspiration in different ways. We also liked how some of the artists that submitted photos obviously took delight in making the photos themselves an art statement, creatively labeling the photos and including pics of their own collections, like in the cases of Rafer Roberts and Will Dinski. But Spleenal may win for the most unusual – his workspace varies between the bus and the train!
