    Ooo I do so love these. I'll try to get one up later.

    Gaa! I will participate shortly! I'd also love to invite you, should you be flickr users, to share these with a group I administer, called where we make.

    You'll find a couple of Whitechaplains already there.

    Most of my creative stuff involves writing, so:
    A. is my non-fancy but servicable Toshiba laptop.

    But I have many irons in the fire. Over to the right a bit, on my dining nook table:
    A. My soldering station. A plywood plank, a soldering pen, a can to put snipped-off leads in, a rag to clean the pen tip. There's usually a little fan to blow away solder fumes.
    B. Bin of modeling supplies. Knives, sandpaper, tape.
    (Between B. and C. is a box of peanut brittle I meant to send to my Dad for Father's Day. Oh well.)
    C. Bin with parts -- nuts, bolts, washers, felt, chalk -- for my latest project.
    D. A rocket I'm working on.
    E. That's my latest project. More on that here.
    F. Nylon tote bag full of miscellaneous tools. Screwdrivers, clamps, pliers, knives, etc.

    Immediately above F. is a coffee container I used to support parts of the lantern while I sprayed it. Stuff like that is handy.

    Alright, hasty shot, hastily labeled, lavishly detailed list.

    Desk: IKEA (something)-series which has since been replaced by the MICKE series.
    Chair: pretty sure it's a Realspace PRO 2000, but I can't seem to find the paperwork right now

    1. Axiom 61 (2nd gen) MIDI controller.
    2. Wurlitzer 200A (not 100%) working.
    3. Epiphone Les Paul Limited (with EMG81 bridge pickup).
    4. Ibanez PC5NT acoustic.
    5. Squire Telecaster (in need of modification to be awesome).
    6. Signed Templesmith print from c2e2 2010.
    7. Top shelf were all junk is banished to, including refurb DS box.
    8. Aforementioned Nintendo DSi.
    9. Garbage can. Complete with McDonald's cups.
    10. Motorola Droid 2. Also: Diet Mountain Dew, Magic cards, DS games.
    11. Moleskine books (one sketchbook, one lined notebook) and various art supplies you can't see.
    12. Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet (older generation)
    13. Rack gear:
    a. Avid Mbox Pro
    b. Seagate external drive
    c. Furman power conditioner
    d. ADA MP-1 guitar preamp (non-modified, Mesa tubes)
    e. Digidesign (now Avid) Eleven Rack
    f. Alesis blackface ADAT (approx. 3000 hours)
    Non-gear items hiding in/on rack:
    - Canned air
    - various DS game cases
    - Sony MDR-7506 headphones
    - Rode NT1-A matched pair microphones
    14. Unsightly shadow from flash because I am bad a taking pictures.
    15. Magnetic whiteboard with Coilhouse insert cards from Issue 5, various magnets. Shelf holds random shit like guitar picks, thumbdrives, and iLok dongles. And twisty-ties, because you can never have enough. Oh, and my Blue Snowflake USB microphone.
    16. One of two actual windows. This one looks out onto the alleyway, so I can watch the garbage man empty my cans. The other is a nice view of our neighbor's wall.

    Other things that didn't make the picture:
    Microphones: Shure SM57s, Sennheiser e609 Silver, Shure Beta52, Shure Beta58.
    Various effects pedals and shitty guitar amps. Foot controller for ADA preamp.
    Squier II Stratocaster with EMG DG20 pickups.
    Yamaha HS50m studio monitors.
    Shelves of videogame and studio software boxes.

    Computer specs:
    Intel i5 3.3ghz
    4gb RAM
    nVidia GTX460 1gb graphics
    500gb system drive
    1tb storage/media drive
    Apple Aluminum Mac keyboard
    Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000

    I'm planning on getting some drawers and blanks for the rack so it doesn't look quite so messy anymore. I'm pretty good with "a place for everything" but I'm not so hip to the "everything in its place" part. For the amount of kit I have I really don't do as much work as I should. (I'm one of those horrible "When I get one more piece of gear I'll get started" procrastinators.)

    Oh, and that green thing on the Wurlitzer is one of those fancy dust cloths that feels all toothy and odd.

    Not sure my workspace is worth a photo, being as it's in an office and so not quite so personalised as these. Plus I'd probably have to blur most of the background out as well as the lead artist has gone on a 'pasting up concept art from the game on every available surface' binge this week. I'll see what I can manage though tomorrow, just cause I don't know many people that have seen what kind of setup games coders actually work with (and because I like playing the 'who has the most monitors on their desk' game)

    A) Booze.

    B) Gesso and black fluid acrylic for laying out the outlines of the finished design.

    C) Drawing and painting tools.

    D) Dropsheet.

    Also of note is my tiny, purple ninja by the cassette tape. Not as exciting as I'd originally thought.
