On My Desk 2021 Edition

Brian Allen in his studio and at his desk, need we say more? 

Hey look, it’s 2021! How awesome is that!? If you’re reading this, you survived, in more ways than one. It’s not over yet, but no matter what 2021 throws at us, we’re going to try our best to make the most of it and we hope you’re willing to join us on that journey.

To get the ball rolling and encourage a bit of social media solidarity, we’re going to start a new blog series inspired by a now-defunct blog Linzie Hunter created all the way back in 2006. It was called “On My Desk” and it was brilliant. It showed us that illustrators and general creative folk were real people, and gave an invaluable insight into our places of work along with the workspaces themselves.

What we’re looking for from you are photos of your desk, photos of your studios and workspaces, or even video walkthroughs of your place of work. Hide the junk food and coffee stains and snap away. Your workspace mascots (pets) are more than welcome to get in on the action too.

For a bit of studio envy, this is Samuel Casal’s workspace.

Members: Email or Dropbox your photos or videos to darren@hireillo.com along with a link to your HAI profile and we’ll do the rest. We’re super-excited about this project and can’t wait to see your photos!
