I decided to use ballpoint pens with small dots of colour with markers. Although my space is small, it definitely represents me in many ways. mostly on the lights and all the plush pillows and blankets.
This is another view of my space. I have more coloured lights, with polaroids that I have taken, and post cards. I have my Buddha wind chime that was gifted to me by my friend and roommate as a Christmas gift. I also have glow in the dark stars that are stuck to my ceiling.
Here is the area where I will be doing most of my work. I spend a lot of time near my desk. It’s relatively empty because I just moved all of my stuff out of the dorm room and have had no time to redecorate to make it more homey. On my desk, I have five, yes five, sketchbooks scattered all around my desk, I have two “bins” of washi tape, my desk organizer for my fine liner pens, an organizer for all my gel pens and another desk organizer for all my highlighters. I also have 4 lines on my desk that measure out paper size and width drawn on my desk, in paint… whoops.. and that helps me center and tape down skeets of paper for when I want to do single sheets of work. I also have jars that are filled with paint brushes and my most commonly used makeup iteams that I use. I also have a fake candle placed on my desk, and my snow globe of Winnie-the-Pooh. Lastly placed in my desk is a dirty cup that I used for my coffee and my bulletjoural.
This is my favorite corner to sit in. I actually sleep here, hence all the pillows and stuffed animals. I usually have a gigantic bear propped up against the all so when I roll around I don’t hit my head. I also have a Winnie-the-Pooh bear, which is actually my first stuffed animal I ever got when I came to the states when I was a baby. I have my tv placed on a chest with three types of art pads leaning against it. My largest sketch pad is my mixed media pad, my second largest pad is my watercolour paper and the smallest pad of paper is a used up watercolour paper. I also have my lights hung up just above my bed. It’s a very colourful setup.
This wind chime was given to me by my best friend and roommate for Christmas. This is hanging in my space, from the ceiling. This fits into my ecosystem because when I do,rarely happens but if I do, open my window, its nice to hear my wind chime actually chime instead of it being hung up against a wall.
This is my jar full of my everyday makeup. The reason why this fits into my ecosystem is because I commonly sit at my desk to do my makeup daily.
This paper weight was given to me by my friend, and this fits into my eco system because I find myself using it constantly when I sit at my desk to keep my sketchbook open or my notebook open.
This fits into my ecosystem because it reminds me that it is okay to not always have a finish product in order to create art.
