|Alease Michelle, Collage Artist & Fashion Instructor|
Rock Hill, South Carolina
Welcome to my desk. I am an collage artist and an instructor. And because I do both activities at home, I require two desk. One desk to work on collages and the other desk to create lecture presentations.
I tend to have lots of projects going on at one time. So my project board helps me stay on schedule.
I also collect images that inspire me and after collecting images for over 5 years, the collection can grow. So below is my way of organizing my images. I have a notebook for each category. It has really helped me stay focused.
I love to dream about the possibilities of life. So here is my creative visualization board. I paste any and everything on this board and hopes of them coming true.
Then I have an area where I showcase those I admire. It too keeps me focus on my dreams, and hopefully one day they might be a collector of my work.
Well thanks for viewing what on my desk.
Peace & Love ,

East London, UK.
Hello and welcome to my studio. I live and work in a turn of the century Victorian warehouse in East London. I am very fortunate to have space to really spread out. There are 3 main areas 2 studios and a study. As a Graphic Audio artist, I work with a mixture of media. music, digital photography, video and other visual manifestations.
My desk is actually two desks facing each other. I am a very tidy person overall and can’t start the day's work unless everything is in order. Still most of the time my desk still manages to fill up with piles of paper, but it’s always gone by the morning. Each desk has a computer one Mac and one PC. I use the Mac for digital photography and artwork. The very old PC is for the Internet mainly but I also have started writing articles on it.
My work process doesn't start at the piano. By the time I'm working here, I already know the melody and in most cases I've written the lyrics. I always do the music last. It forces me not to gravitate towards familiar chords. The pencils on the cabinet are not for show. The worst thing that can happen to you if you are writing, is having to break your chain of thought because you've misplaced a pen or pencil. By the end of the day there are pens and pencils all over the place. It's very handy to be able to just grab a pencil and write. I use my old tape machine (which records) to sketch out ideas. The white cabinet is full of taped musical ideas one idea per tape. So I can come back and develope them into songs later. I finally record live, to my trusted VS1680 (ie; the grey machine) sitting on the workbench.

Here is my drawing table. It is nicely cluttered as usual.
This is a closeup of the top shelf. Don't mess with Dr. Doom! There are lots of toys to keep me distracted. The round object in front of Mighty Mouse is a speaker for my iPod. I like to listen to the Blues when I draw, especially Joe Bonamassa. The framed Charlie Brown I drew for work when we decorated our cubicles at Christmas. It is done in pen and watercolor.
This is my drawing surface...although there really isn't much "surface." Lots of books and DVDs.
Here is a better view of the DVDs, mostly classic animation, and of course, Crumb. I highly recommend the "All Monsters Attack" DVD if you are into classic monsters. It is about 2 hours of old monster movie trailers...good stuff.
You can never have too many pens...
...especially when you aren't at home. These are three pen holders that I alternately lug around with me at all times.
When I need a break I pick up my guitar. Note the monster and sci-fi movies in the background. And yes the plastic monster figures are "glow-in-the-dark."
Here is a recent piece that I have done.
Please stop by my blog and say hello.
