Where I Work: Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of Wumbers and Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

My studio is a room over the garage, custom-built for this purpose, so it has everything I need.

Photo One:
Don’t be fooled; it’s never this tidy.

Photo Two:
There’s nothing like a nice big counter top for getting things done. When I’m working on a book, it takes over this space.

Photo Three:
The usual studio stuff: a drawing board, computer, and sunlight.

Photo Four:
When I’m intensely working on writing or sketching out a book, I need a small space with all the elements right in front of me. So I built this “nest” around my desk, using foamcore for walls. The cat is modeling for a drawing of a giraffe.

Photo Five:
The other cat, modeling for a drawing of a cat.
