It looks like a mess usually and I always get a little worried at this stage. — This bit from around the halfway point of Scott Campbell’s step-by-step account of his painting method should be included in every description of every creative process. (via mrgan)
Mike Mignola tutorial, c.1997. I remember liking this so much I pasted the pages straight into my sketchbook

Jack Kirby’s work space.
Absolutely my favorite and most inspiring image I’ve seen in a while.
I love how unpretentious and no-bullshit it is. It’s a plain desk, with a plain chair and a plain side chair, all of which are beat up from use and covered in ink. It faces a corner, one that’s covered in unorganized comics. It’s inspiring to see the desk that held the home of creation for countless characters was so practical. Nothing fancy about it. Just a place to sit down, shut up and do the work.
P.S. I’d like to credit this photo, but I don’t know where it comes from. If this is yours, let me know and I’d love to properly attribute you.
