For background design we’re designing Baby Herman’s bedroom (of Roger Rabbit fame) and one thing we need in the room is a cluttered desk. So as I’m drawing more and more stuff on the desk I’m thinking that it takes much more effort to draw a messy desk than to make a messy desk. I’ve done practically nothing and my desk at home is cluttered with books, peanut shells, an itinerary, plastic utensils, a glove, some loose change, my sunglasses, orange peels, empty takeout containers, a wooden fan, some pharmaceutical post-its, and various drawing related stuff. I mean one minute it’s clean and a couple weeks later … voila! All this stuff! Background design is another matter and it looks like I might have to put a good deal of effort to make a mess as good as the one I have beside me.
