Room Tour



We've only just met and I'm already giving you a tour of my room? 
I'm actually leaving Florida for a month in a couple of days and figured it was best to introduce you guys to my playground. I am in love with the idea of having a work space that I can zone out and just let my imagination flow. Since I draw for a living, I made sure to have a plethora of inspiration just within reach.

Fun Fact: I can't sleep without a nightcap or my UglyDoll Ice Bat.


















I am obsessed with candles. Growing up my mom would often cook and the smell would consume our cozy little house. So, naturally my counter for the scent were candles and I haven't stopped buying them ever since. It also helps when you have two dudes living with you.
Lady Loki was my first cosplay. I often wear the horns when I need something from the roomies.























I like to keep my work space fairly clean and when I say "clean" I really mean with enough room to work on. My wall is plastered with pictures/design I find most interesting and of course the occasional fanart from my favorite movies/shows. I also used to work for my school's library so I brought home a lot of books from the collection that needed retiring.
The oldest book in my collection is actually a copy of Arabian Nights that dates to 1901.


























I also collect vinyl designer toys. It all started about five years ago when I stumbled on my first Dunny at a store in Portland, OR. I flipped him over to look for his patent and what I found instead was a crude painting of a limb. Needless to say I bought him and my collection has been growing ever since.
The squirrel is named Skiddlyboop and is one of the characters from a toy line I used to work for.





I seriously have so much stuff in my room that everyone else thinks is clutter. I don't have a side table at the moment, so everything by my bedside is what I consider to be a necessity for an occasional insomnia attack.
I have yet to finish  George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings thanks to my other distractions.
I hope to do another room tour later on when I have more pieces added into my odd collection. This is in hoping I get a bigger place once I find the right studio to work for and actually get the right furniture for my stuff.

  1. Oh, I Love, Love, Love your "stuff". It is all so organized and stacked creatively so you can enjoy all of it. I wouldn't change a thing, although once you get a bigger place you can add to the "stuff". Found you via First Friday Blog Hop, following via Bloglovin'. By the way you are an adorable "geek"!!!
