My Little Workspace

It's an ice storm in the middle of April, so due to being indoors I've decided to show what my workspace looks like after cleaning it out a little. I might have mentioned it before, but my little nook is literally a corner of controlled chaos.

 My room is 40% art workspace and 60% room.

In an ideal world my workspace isn't limited to one big desk with most of it being supply space rather than a workspace. I still live with my family and I work from my room on my laptop when I create digital illustrations for assignments or when I actually paint. I like to work here when it's really bright outside because it's next to the window, although my room is the room that gets the least amount of light in the house. Thats probably why my little plants and succulents aren't thriving as well as they could. What I think I would need to invest in is a proper desk chair because my back and shoulders has been really feeling it this year when I'm at my desk for too long. 

 The empty space without anything on it? That's the actual workspace HA HA HA.

 Handpainted some Dollarama figurines that sit on top of a wooden shelving system that I bartered to keep all my little knick-knacks in concealed order.

I think nearly every inch of this little nook is covered in little postcards, prints and cards I've collected since I finally got a room to myself.  I've also framed the giant cheque of $4000 dollars to free ramen for a year that I won in first year of University for always tweeting the ramen restaurant as a contest. It may be my biggest legacy yet.  The printer I have is bartered as well, I traded it for two skirts and lugged the heavy thing a couple of subway stations before I had to call my dad to save me. It's able to print on watercolour paper with a little struggle and do double sided printing for when I make zines so it ended up being a very useful trade.

 BONUS: my altar at the door of my bed. Where I keep some candy, candles+incense, lights.

Perhaps in another post in another time I'll go over actual materials on my desk and inside various shelves that I use but I think this post is going to get too lengthy.
