It’s kinda hard to be an artist or designer without a studio, right? Conventional wisdom would say yes, but there are more than a few of us who are working out of closets or off kitchen tables. While a dedicated studio might feel like a luxury, any place you get your work done is a good thing, even though that may be hard to see sometimes.
This week, Ryan and Garreth sit down to talk about the spaces in which we work and how we can think better about them. Sometimes we need a little bit of organization and sweeping to use our spaces better; other times, we may need to rethink our spaces entirely. Whatever the case is, it is important to think about the spaces where we work and how we can care for them so they can care for us.
