Yesterday was one of those pain in the arse days when you’ve got to do something that you don’t really want to do. I shall now bore you with the details.
At the weekend I did my back in again, not as bad as previously (I am still able to move) but bad enough for me to get a quick appointment with my osteopath. She asked what it is I do that means I’m twisting at the middle so much… it wasn’t hard to work out that it probably had something to do with the fact that my monitor was twisted at a slight angle and off to my left a bit… so as to avoid the glare from the window behind me, which would bleach out whatever’s on the screen. She said to straighten it up or risk making her rich & me poor from my continued visits.
So yesterday I tackled the task of moving my desk to a better position in the studio… the first attempt failed when I discovered the balcony doors gave just as bad a glare, so I had to renegotiate, which also involved moving a load of computers & photographic equipment. In the end I settled here… a cosy corner, with Gorillaz producer Cara Speller just beyond the bookshelf. It’s a much better spot screen-wise & I thought while it’s all neat & tidy I’ll take a photo or two & post it… cos I always like nose-ing at the work spaces of other artists.
