Jack Kirby’s work space.
Absolutely my favorite and most inspiring image I’ve seen in a while.
I love how unpretentious and no-bullshit it is. It’s a plain desk, with a plain chair and a plain side chair, all of which are beat up from use and covered in ink. It faces a corner, one that’s covered in unorganized comics. It’s inspiring to see the desk that held the home of creation for countless characters was so practical. Nothing fancy about it. Just a place to sit down, shut up and do the work.
P.S. I’d like to credit this photo, but I don’t know where it comes from. If this is yours, let me know and I’d love to properly attribute you.

    We all should hope one day to leave such a filthy desk behind. Respect to the man.

    It’s not about money. It’s not about the royalties he deserved. It’s about the work. The sweat. Hours upon hours worked...
