Lordy Rodriguez takes us to his studio in Hayward, CA.
Here is an image of my studio from the back with a shot of one of my dutiful interns working hard.
This is a shot of my work area where I do all my work. On the wall, you can see the shelves that house all my inks. I use both Pantone inks and Copic inks.
Here is a close up of the ink wall.
