The studio is in the midst of a big cleanup/reorganization. It’s in the “it’s going to look worse before it gets better” stage. It is so incredibly messy in there that I had to move my computer to a new workspace just to be able to think. Can you work in a messy office? I absolutely cannot do it. The “noise” of the mess makes my brain hurt … and it’s difficult to design without a functioning brain! This is my temporary workspace. I borrowed a Ghost chair from Mom. I love it except for the fact that I can’t cross my legs into my lap — Mom told me if I scratch the chair I’m toast!
