The summer months tend to be slow at my company, a commercial real estate investment banking firm, where I work as a graphic designer. I don't usually draw anything around my desk because it's all so dull and I stare at it every day, but doing this whole "landscape" was kind of fun. It's kind of a mess, but it's very me.
Highlights from this landscape:
- my giant monitor (the scale here is all screwed up, trust me, it's huge)
- the fact that my giant monitor sits on a ream of paper. Fancy monitor stands are just a little too high.
- stack of business cards: I have given out 1, and it was to the shoe-cobbler who comes around our office.
- white castle mug that sits on a donut coffee-warmer
- the fancy phone on which I receive about 2 phone calls a week
- the fancy halogen light that doesn't even work, but I leave it there anyway
- the decorative stone container (in front of my phone); handmade in Africa and purchased for me by a Silver Bay buddy. I keep vitamins in it.
- the mouse hiding behind the phone. I use a wacom tablet so the mouse only gets used by the IT guy when he comes by
I drew this with a uni•ball vision elite in my Strathmore sketch pad, which is considerably less intimidating than my Moleskin. This is probably a good thing, because I couldn't find my favorite thick paper Moleskin at Hennessey & Ingalls today. Sad.
