Why Standing Desks Are Essential For Artists, Just Ask This Manga Artist
In February 2015, Hoshikadu Hamada decided that he had enough of the standard seated workstation. He created several prototypes of artist table desks in an attempt to find the most comfortable position that would allow him to draw, think, and focus on his manga drawings.
One of his DIY standing desk models has a head-to-toe “backrest” while another one only had a pelvis “support.” However, his most recent design has been perceived by his fans to be “the most successful.”
This standing artist desk has a tilted tabletop (at about a 45 degree angle) that can minimize wrist strain when drawing for long hours. He also included fasteners that can hold a lamp, computer screens, keyboards, and other gadgets in place.
Most standing desks today just offer a flat tabletop whose height can be adjusted depending on how tall the user is.
