New HQ: A Quick Peak

A couple quick shots from the new Galactic Headquarters for both Pixelated Image Communications and Craft & Vision. A small loft in Vancouver’s Yaletown, and just big enough to call home when I’m not traveling and for Corwin and the rest of my team to make use of as an office. This has to be one of the best parts of being home in Vancouver; the chance to set up a live/work space I’ve always dreamed of.

Was meant to be camping on Vancouver Island this week, but a brief, unscheduled, visit to the hospital due to gallstones kept me at home (seriously, can I be done with this kind of thing for a little while, please?) I Tweeted and Facebooked this information, and for all of you that replied with yet another kind round of your sympathy, prayers, and thoughts – thank you.

It’s good to be home. I should have all the documents I need for the U.S. customs people soon, and then it’s off to Switzerland for a couple days of lectures, Stockholm for a week, and then Italy for two weeks of Within The Frame Photographic Adventures, before coming home, hopping into Emily, and heading to Arizona for the Overland Expo.

    Well I’m jealous – how did you ever find that! We rent a condo in Yaletown for a month every summer we love it so much – even tho we live on Wall Street in Vancouver. Enjoy safe travels. If I pass you on the street again this summer I will stop and say hi this time.

    Looks like a nice place to be, but more importantly, that Eames chair looks comfy!

    Nice! And I agree… all three Eames chairs look awesome!!!

    I hope you don’t have to blaze through Oregon too fast! No matter which part you come down through (and I would certainly recommend Central or Eastern Oregon) there is much to see and photograph.

    Hey….I’ve got that same desktop image in the middle picture on my computer…where did you get that????!!!

  7. March 23, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Love the digs!! Looks fabulous. Happy continent hopping!

    I was going to compliment you – but then I saw flowers in a vase on the coffee table. Man, that’s the selective colour of interior design.

    At least you have good taste in chairs!

    Damn bad luck, but nice digs. Hope you have your appendix out already, or that may be next…

    Looks lovely , David. Congratulations! Sorry to hear that you’ve been sick, and hope that that is all behind you for upcoming travels. Take care, Sarah

    Hi David and Team. Great Place to work! congratulations. I can’t find when and where you will be in Zwitserland, David. Can someone help? Geert

    Hi David,

    congrat for the new HQ.
    I perfectly know how painfull gallstones can be..I read you are heading to Switzerland. Are you going to hold workshops or lectures? If you need insider infos about Switzerland don’t hesitate to ask!!

    Cheers

    Looks nice! Hope your feeling better now. I would love to meet you up in Stockholm, for some “fika” or something :) Take care!

    Awesome work space! Congrats!

    Hope you are able to sort out the US Immigration hiccup. If you do, I may see you in Flagstaff.

    Hope you are well! Godspeed!

    Hi all. Thanks for the invitations re. Switzerland and Sweden. In Switzerland I’m giving private lectures and classes at The American School in Switzerland, and will have very little time there. In Sweden I’m taking some personal time with an old friend and I’m letting him call the shots with my schedule. I’d still very much like to come spend some less scheduled time in Europe, connect with some readers, and hang out, but it won’t be this trip. Thanks again for the nudge, though! :-)

  18. March 24, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Nice digs! Sorry to hear about the gallstones. But such it is.

    Gotta look for a place like that myself…

    Pretty cool new HQ. I think the interior matches the other things in your life perfect!
    Hope the gallstones are the last healt-problems for a long time now!

    best regards and hving a good time in Europe

    Glad to hear papers are getting in order and you can get back into Emily for some warmer travels…

  21. March 24, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    If you come back through SF – have a meet up or something :)

  22. March 25, 2012 at 8:13 am

    That is one sweet man cave!

  23. March 25, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Oh… it looks so inviting and lovely! Congrats! I’m just across the border. Just keep those gallstones away for all your travels! Good luck

  24. March 25, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    It’s good to be home. Good luck! and I absolutley love your coffe table.

    Very happy to hear you are feeling better and the place looks great.

  29. March 26, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Nice digs! Better have those monitors calibrated though, they look awfully blue-green. ;-)

    Sorry to hear about the recent medical problems, seems like you’ve had more than your fair share.

  30. March 26, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    What a great space. I can feel the energy!

    You never seem to stay in one spot for long! So much world to experience. Happy travels.

  31. March 26, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Snazzy! May you continue to be as creative in your new home as you’ve been everywhere else. All the best.

  35. March 27, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Wow! Really cool place! Hope it exceeds your expectations as a living/working place and everything runs smoothly next time you try crossing the border! All the best!

    That is just a rocking’ pad, David! I’ve longed for an Eames lounger for many years… Sure looks good in your space, and it looks like you have fabulous light!
