Work Absence (Doodle)


[IMAGE] A6 ink and watercolour

This is my old desk (with me missing).  Since I’ve been off sick (over 4 months in this period of absence) my team have moved offices so I know I’m never going back to my desk as I knew it.

I hadn’t realised just how grey my working environment was until I did this drawing (admittedly from my memory but it shows what I saw on a day to day basis).  I spent 8 hours a day with only a PC monitor between me and a grey brick wall.  And I thought my environment was restricted now!

    Nice pic. There is someone else sitting in my old work desk these days. I had just changed roles when I got sick and was waiting for a desk move so I dont know what my new desk would look like.

  2. This peice of art actually gives me a feeling of loneliness, I do like it alot though… it was a very creative form of expression, nice job!
