Cubicleism, or, “How I learned to stop worrying and love the dry erase board”

Cubicleism.  This is my cube.  There are many others like it but this one is mine.  It is important to do something to personalize your cube so it can be unique, just like everyone else.

This space is being created to document my effort to make my cubicle more interesting.  Some people put up pictures and newspaper articles.  Maybe calendars or stuffed animals.  Perhaps I will get around to those things.  For now, I just draw on the whiteboard.  Each morning when I get to work I’ll doodle for a few minutes on the dry erase board , sort of a focusing thing.  I don’t drink coffee.  The time it would normally take me to hit the break room to make coffee is spent trying to be creative.  I started out recreating famous artworks.  It’s important to note that since I work in such small chunks these things take quite a while to finish.  I do have to do my 8 hours of work a day, after all.  🙂  I have a backlog of these that were finished over the last few months.  Once I get those loaded up, I will start posting work-in-progress pics of whatever I am currently working on.  So here was the first effort in bringing some culture to the cubicle farm, Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream.’
