I've been working on more clean up, all over the house.
Yesterday I was in the studio for a while, but didn't make anything. Instead, I shuffled some things around to put the proper items in the labeled drawers. I definitely have to come up with another way of storing leather - and fabric - as these little drawers just won't work to hold all of it. Otherwise, things seem to be working well and I'm very happy to finally have a place for a lot of random things that have been laying around.
I did get slightly side tracked by going through a stack of magazines for references. A few of the drawers had been stuffed with magazines and other reference material during the move. I had to pull them all out, to put the labeled contents in. Instead of just moving the pile to somewhere else in the mess-- er, studio, I decided to go through them. I tore out the pages I was interested in and cut some of the pictures out.
At some point I'm going to have to have another layout marathon, where I arrange the pictures in my reference binders. I have quite a few pictures, articles, and so on, ready to be filed.
As always, whenever I go through my references, I want to stop what I'm doing, shove everything aside, grab a horse, and get to work. However, that constant back and forth struggle is why 1) my studio is such an epic mess and 2) I don't actually seem to get much creative work DONE. I'm trying to be "good" and keep at the cleaning and organizing as long as possible... before I can't take it anymore and have to make something. ;)
