Where is your studio?

It’s on the Western part of Hester Street in Chinatown, Manhattan.

What are the pros and cons of your studio ?
The pros are that my studio is in my apartment. The cons are that my studio is in my apartment. There is always the chance that you will end up doing photoshop wearing only underwear.

How many hours do you usually spend there per week ?
Since I also live here it becomes pretty organic. But if I have to work, I work. There was one time I worked for 7 months without seeing anyone at all.

Do you have your own daily routine within the studio ?
I make coffee and then go straight into emails. I really don’t like emails and I am constantly trying to tell people how I feel about emails. I would be fine if my job was just writing emails, but it has this other element of concentration and precision in Adobe Photoshop.

Are there things you deliberately forbid yourself to do/have within the studio in order to be more productive ?
Mid-day meetings are the worst. Like, “let’s meet 2.30 PM”. That definitely means no real work done that day.

Do you sometimes wish you shared your studio with one or a few other artists ?
I’ve been sharing studio with others many times. It’s good because it makes you want to appear less of a slacker but you need to find someone who likes the same music as you. That’s about it.
