What does your office space look like? 

My office is a studio with two desks and a lot of shelves. One table is for my computer and other for drawing.I love organization and simplicity but sometimes I have a bit of controlled chaos (when I am involved in several projects at same time). I love having all my sketchbooks numbered.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working ? 

Depends of the project or the project step. When I have to work in hard ideas or produce initial sketches I prefer silence. Moreover, I use the site Noisli (where you can design your own soundtrack based in natural sounds like rain, wind, etc.) Even so, I usually listen jazz or soundtracks.
