The latest contribution from master craftsman Bill Roberge (who fixed my B-52 chair), a proper wooden rack to replace the cardboard placeholder I'd put together a few years ago.

The original idea behind this started when I was working on multiple titles and wanted to keep the issues separate as the pages piled up. With only ELSEWHEN literally on the drawing board these days, the compartments now hold (from bottom to top) the current issue in progress, a couple of the previous issues (for reference), and random pages and double-page spreads.

So, thanks Bill!!

I like these behind-the-scenes insights to your work. Great job by Bill! That is one good-sized drawing board!

Bill, you said you had a picture of the board with the old cardboard rack in place. Do you still? And if so, can you post it?

Thanks.

That is one good-sized drawing board!

68x37 inches.

Realizing just now it is only the THIRD drawing board I've had in my life. There was the small (42x36) one that I got from Dad when he set aside his second career as an architect, circa 1966, followed a decade later by the one I bought myself to commemorate my assignment to UNCANNY X-MEN (that one was 60x36), to the one I currently use, which I acquired about 25 years ago.

The one in the middle had the architects machine, which has proven so invaluable in my career. When I retired the board, I transferred the machine. Still going strong after 44 years!!
