One important factor in the design process is the condition under which the designer works. It shouldn't have any real effect on the quality of the product - how good a design it is - but it sure effects the designer's life.
A well designed studio makes working more efficient. Good lighting, a proper chair, design tools within reach... Improve your work space, wherever it is, and the more pleasant it is, the easier you'll find it to sit down to work. I wrote on this topic in February, but I'm thinking of it again because, well, you can only control so much of your environment...
Unlike last time, the External Factor effecting my converted-porch studio is not snow outside, but heat: 100-110 degrees F lately.
I'm melting! Drawing early in the morning is my only hope - drawing fast!
