Hello fellow paint fiends !
I'm starting a new thread for a showcase of your workspace photos. I personally love seeing other peoples digs in were they create of whatever. Post what you want, art spaces, collection areas, relaxing areas whatever. I'm going to start it off with some "lameish" ones. I will take more "In action" shots soon. Jump in and add yours and comment !!
This is an old pic of me working at Max Toy HQ workspace.
Here is my OOOOLD Setup in the basement of my old house... HOURS of painting were done indoors!
After my roomate got sick of smelling fumes for 3 years, I built a filtration system... It kinda worked...
Now my current spot is in a garage about 20 miles from me in which I rent, but I can spray for hours, and nobody cares...
OK, but before I show the pics of my spray booth in the basement coal bin, I want to show where my basement is located which helps to even things out when I come up for air.
OK OK down down down
And the color mixing station up a few stairs from the paint dungeon.
Its interesting how many of us seem to paint in similar rather spooky conditions. It gets better upstairs and I will post some more later.
damn bob, that american countryside nature view is beautiful. beautiful and sad. because bad people with poo-filled souls are wreckin it all up with their inane outdated and shortsighted ideas. and all for what? money...power...more money? scat-covered dreams and snake-oil cons that only benefit 1% of the population - - and those 1%er thieves always possess dual status in multiple nations, so they aren't even americans to begin with. boooooo and hisssss. nice to see a good dude such as yourself got a taste of the real american dream before these evil bastards put a final sleeper hold on it and cut its throat for good...bleed it out slow like a good kosher kill.
while most of your work is non-politically charged, i have seen a few of your pieces that seem to echo my sentiments. it would be hard for a good person to live around nature and freedom like that and not bond with it on some level.
what a backyard you have, and a nice dungeon style studio perfect for the tinkerer's way of life. modern throwback to boheme renaisance living.
I spray outside my studio, so no spray booth ... each time i have to haul out my Monster Kolor paints etc .. also I do not spray when it rains for obvious reasons ;-P I do have an over hang that shields some rain the problem is it gets too cold to paint. Oh and I do wear gloves and a mask even outside. Card board boxes are for holding painted figures while they dry.
By the way I love this thread .. very interesting how everyone adapts to where they are !!
nice mr nagata. and jeepers i love your designs..hooked real bad on your new minis. lost count weeks ago as to how many of them i've done, but i am no where near content yet. your post is a great one too, it shows that even supermaster fellows such as yourself paint in similar circumstances with the rest of us..and all of us who like to paint outdoors must answer to the weather every time. humans are awesome at adaptation even if we sometimes would rather not.
and did i mention your toys kick ass? they kick much ass.
haha, oh thanks so much ;-)unless you paint yourself you don't know the trouble it is to do (> < ). Actually my old set up was in my apartment with a spray booth just like Bob's above the exhaust fan went out a third story window.. however the over spray was so bad that when we dusted we would wipe up tiny particles of paint in other rooms !! Not good for sure ... now I just spray away outside and contribute to global warming ;-P sorry Earth ... ;-(
Glad this thread is coming alive.
Mark that has to be tough heading outside each time. i always hated having to go out to the garage to paint. I too love you mini's they are real fun to paint. I would love to see some more come out unpainted for all of us MK lovers to paint up.
Bob love the nature shots and seeing a fellow basement dweller.
