Office Spaces....


My current (and favorite) workspace.


My last workspace at Crestline.


This was my workspace when I made custom Mego toys for a living. I would design the packaging here...

...and put the toys together here. Ah, good times!

I have held a few jobs over the years. Some of those jobs involved standing for long periods preparing food. Some involved long periods of driving and delivering food. Others involved sitting at a desk for long periods and occasionally eating food.

The latter jobs were usually the creative ones, and it would drive me crazy to sit somewhere for eight + hours per day and stare at bland, corporate surroundings. To combat such drabness, I would decorate my desk area with toys, comics, movie posters, art from my kids and whatever else I could get away with under company policy. Sure, some people would sneer, think it was childish, or scoff; thinking it to be unprofessional. But luckily, the vast majority would be fascinated, ask questions, or confess their secret inner-nerd to me.

After awhile, I found myself peering at the desks of my co-workers; interested to see how they decorate their "job home". Which brings me to my point; I would love it if you, dear reader, would send me pictures of your own workspace; even if it's boring, or if it's fantastic, and especially if it's likely to get you sent to the HR department for a little "chat" on workplace appropriateness. Please send me your pics with whatever you want to say about it, and I'll post it here on the monster!
