I made POOR LITTLE GUY at Charlie Baker’s Studio in Long Island City, where I used to have a workspace. It is the workshop of a brilliant carpenter and furniture maker, with exquisite views of New York City in a sun drenched workshop. I don’t take up much space when I work – I just need a drafting table and a scanner, and my lovely Cintiq monitor which works with a pressure sensitive pen. Here are some photos of that pretty space:
