Cartoonists in the news: Rick Stromoski and his newly designed studio

Soup to Nutz creator Rick Stromoski recently renovated his studio with the help of a designer.

Davenport returned about a month later with a plan. The walls would be a pretty Guilford Green; the floors, engineered wood in a pecan finish. The drafting table would be swapped with the computer desk, so each was on an opposite wall. Two sofa-length window seats would replace the futon, and every piece of surrounding wall space would be covered with floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. One window seat would be dedicated to the couple’s 12-year-old daughter, Molly, who likes to do her homework in the studio while her father works in the afternoon.

The story, linked above, also has a small photo where you can see some of the results. It would have been nice to have seen a before and after picture.

Congrats on the new studio, Rick. The “new look” is great….of course the “old look” was still way better than what my studio looks like now. There’s only so much I can do with a basement studio.

For those artists that didn’t catch the original story in the Hartford Courant, Here’s the link. There’s MORE PICTURES!!

CT thanks, the photos helped a lot. I agree, the before picture is still better than mine. Nice looking layout.

It’s probably because I haven’t had my coffee yet, but I can’t find the photos on either of the story links. The description of it sounds great, though.

I couldn’t find them on the original posting, but in CT’s link they are on the right.
