I like to have one screen keeping the distractible part of my brain occupied; I’ll rewatch The X-files or slow-moving horror movies. On the other monitor I’ll have my reference images or a Photoshop session open. The frilly thing at the bottom left is a vibrating seat covered in cartoon fish where my 4-month-old daughter sometimes sits and happily chews on her giant stuffed caterpillar while I work. For background noise she prefers leftie political podcasts over horror movies. This desk also doubles as a home recording studio.
