i can see that. 

hi tumblr i feel gross and all i did yesterday was sleep

let’s hi five

vidraws replied to your photo“i…is hgtv an american thing? i’m sorry i’ve never heard of it > n…”
Ohhh, I suppose it IS an American thing! haha xD;; It’s the Home & Garden channel that is popular here. Do you watch the equivalent? That’s a very nice bed! I tend to like the eclectic style too. Does that make me hipster trash too? haha
Uhmmm well I mean my parents watch a lot of renovating etc shows and sometimes i’ll be existing in the same room so I’ll watch a bit, but not regularly. Also no, you’re not hipster trash I’m just being self-deprecating and idk it’s kind of funny that there’s a lot of places where you can get that “one of a kind” item to tie your room decor together when they’ve got a whole warehouse full of the same thing. Also tumblr hipster/coolblogs reposting photos of bedrooms with eclectic decor and trees growing through the room.
by no means am i saying people shouldn’t like that stuff but i feel stupidly guilty for liking it myself sometimes.
i…is hgtv an american thing? i’m sorry i’ve never heard of it > n >” !!
basically THIS is the bed i’m hoping to get (also hopefully that won’t redirect you elsewhere, if you’re not in australia), i like wooden furniture that’s dark-stained, and anything that’s got an olde world sort of feel to it. Most of the furniture my parents have (where i live rn) is like that - a lot of it was given to them by their relatives + parents/grandparents when they were younger and it’s all stuff that’d be considered ‘vintage’ or ‘antique’ now.
but i mean i also like bright colours, and i have a lot of throw rugs/blankets and stuff that were handmade by my mother, and i guess if you were to use words they throw around in home and lifestyle magazines and tv shows my taste would be ‘eclectic & boho/bohemian’, because i am actual hipster trash.
When I end up getting all my new stuff set up I’ll totally post pictures!

i literally just saw an advert for a children’s toy (obviously trying to target girls w pink and purple and also that one “girl’s toy advert” voice that i hate) which was essentially a supermarket roleplay? like clearly only girls shop for groceries??? men absorb moisture through their skin & therefore do not need to buy groceries ever???

I dont think you guys understand how much i love looking at furniture and thinkin about how cool i could make my room look

You guys im so excited in roughly 2 weeks i will be getting a new bed (ie ordering and waiting for a new bed to be delivered).

I’ve had my current bed + mattress since i can remember but my mum says it’s closer to 18 yrs (im 22 but i mean thats only a couple years difference) basically the mattress right now is lumpy and hella uncomfortable and my back always hurts. SO YOU CAN SEE WHY I AM SO EXCITED. plus i will finally be an adult who doesnt sleep in a child sized bed i mean i dont need all that much space cause i can sleep comfortably on a 2 seater sofa but omg so much space no more fighting with my cat over it.

Also maybe gonna get a new desk for my pc and idk a tv cabinet/bench thing!!!!! I have been saving aimlessly for ages aaaa

Anonymous asked: I really like your recent sketches! If you don't mind me asking, what pen did you use for the line art?

in the grey/black & white sketches i was using a platinum preppy fountain pen size 03 in black. and in the other sketches the finer lines were made using a pilot fineliner, while the thicker/more organic lines were made using a pilot pocket brush pen. colours were copic ciao markers and faber-castell pitt brush pens and larger areas of solid black were an artline calligraphy pen in size 2.0 with a square chisel tip. also used a white pentel hybrid gel pen size 1.0 for highlights and white-on-black lines.

thank you and i hope this helps!
