Behind-the-scenes with Joe Decie
Welcome to the studio of Joe Decie…
Pots of pens - I live in constant fear that my favourite tools will be discontinued. I stockpile for the winter.
Mechanical pencils - nobody needs this many pencils, I just like em. Some people buy nice new shoes, or pay for haircuts… I buy pencils instead.
Leads - I have more chargers than I have electrical items.
Paperwork - I keep paperwork loose on my desk, less important items get filed to the back until they eventually fall off and get lost for ever.
Notes - Bits and pieces get clipped up on a string. Size guides for various projects, drawings by my boy. Gathering dust.
Drawers - I just cram everything in. I dream of having muji level organisation, but I’m just too messy.
Notebooks - I buy the cheap pocket ones. I draw in them and take notes, also shopping lists, I’m not precious. I usually have a few on the go at a time.
Desk - I don’t know why there’s a nit comb there, we’re a nit free household.
