A reusing theme emerges. Day 3: #100DaysStudioObj
My studio has two drafting tables, one dedicated to computer work, the other to analog work. And it's been this way since I've had a studio space—I bought the tables at the same time at beloved Flax in San Francisco like 16 years ago. For the last 5 years I've used a piece of recycled chipboard as a palette /gel medium/ glue surface that takes up about 1/2 of the analog drafting table. This is it. It has a permanent spot on the desk, right next to the cutting mat.
Those who have ordered prints from 20x200 will recognize the label under the layers of paint and glue. It was the big envelope from a William Powhida print I ordered (and treasure—"WHY YOU SHOULD BUY ART"). The label is addressed to a house I rented on Holly Drive in Hollywood (a story unto itself).
I love the texture and layers and random, miscellaneous beauty of this piece of shipping envelope so much. I plan on using it forever. Or until it disintegrates. Here are 2 more pics of the chipboard on the floor of the Keystone Gallery, both sides.
