A word to define what kind of worker you are :

I’m someone who glorify traditional way of illustrating and designing so I would say pencil. Of course I use computer with Adobe programs.
What does your office space look like?
It’s simple – white walls with wooden floor and furnitures. I like natural materials. Of course when I’m near some deadline it’s get messy, but usually I like to stay it clean.
What kind of music do you listen when you are working ?
It’s hard to answer, course it depends on what kind of work I’m doing at the moment. Lately I listen “Bookhouse” (album inspired with Twin Peaks) and “Frank” soundtrack.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
Unfortunately I have problem with concentration, so it’s hard for me to organise my day. Also it’s complicated because I love to work at night. Of course I’ve got my calendar, where I note everything I need to remember, but it’s all.

Concentrate on what you want to achieve and keep the work area clean.
