Work Station Set Up

How do you set up your work station? Are your pencils in neat rows, or cups, or cases? In drawers? How do you do your work flow? I'm curious!

Re: Work Station Set Up

I keep all of my pencils in the tins they came in. This makes them easy to stack on my shelves when I'm not using them. I also try to keep them in the same order they came in.

I have a nice drawing desk my boyfriend bought me last year for my birthday. But I actually prefer just spreading all my supplies out around me while sitting on the floor

Re: Work Station Set Up

i don’t have a work station. I attach paper to a rigid piece of cardboard And draw on my lap. My pencils are loose in a plastic box. Not very professional, I’m afraid.

I hope you post photos of yours when set up.

I use this case so it's very easy to travel. No desk or dedicated area to work. I enjoy working in airports and on planes as well as hotels when I travel so efficient and light is what I need.

Re: Work Station Set Up

I also store my pencils in their original tins and boxes. When in use, they are kept in Mason jars or trays while the work is in progress. I usually work from my drawing table, but occassionally will use an easel or my dining table, also.

Outside, I have any number of different cases I work from. If I go out on ATV or truck, I'll bring a field easel and more supplies. If on a hike, bike or horse, I'm more limited and just bring a small drawing board or hard case to use, and minimal pencils.
