Illustration is a highly transportable profession. So with that in mind, I moved my studio 6,700 kms from Canada to Oaxaca, Mexico, a center for culture, art, and all kinds yummy food served with chilled beverages.
My new studio is smaller than what I have back in Nelson, B.C. The “casita”, as its called, is a separate outbuilding normally used for guests. Although the interior space is on the squishy side, I do have a nice patio to work in with good light and a view of the the rest of the grounds. The main house sits higher up on the property separated by a lush garden.
There are two house dogs, Chuparro and Pipa, and cat named Lula that keep me company, and serve as models.
