Update: It only took me three weeks to make a frivolous decision

A month ago, I posted about wanting to put up new artwork. After three weeks of agonizing thought and indecision, I’ve finally chosen and hung up new artwork. Now, I can move on to other important decisions, like which flavor lip balm I should buy. Yes, my life is very exciting.

I already had these illustrations up, and I wanted to keep them on the walls. They’re simple, but they just scream nostalgia to me, mostly because of the random stamping on the pieces. It doesn’t take a lot for me to find something nostalgic.

Some of these pieces might look familiar. I decided to go for a nostalgia type of theme, which is appropriate since I have a blog dedicated to it, heh. Nothing says “nostalgia” more than a falconer, someone in a cardboard box costume, a literary phrase and, of course, a fictional serial killer. I feel as if I’m living in 2004 again. Again, how appropriate for me.

I wanted to add some artwork on my desk, so I just chose an illustration of Totoro. It just adds a bit of whimsy and fun to the mess that is my desk.

And, of course, there’s this:

Yeah…Death Note. No other words needed.

  1. These are awesome! I especially love the Totoro one! I think the stamping on the drawings do add a bit of nostalgia. I’ve been trying to keep an eye out for some new pieces of artwork to hang in our apartment – my husband brought a piece back from Spain that is beautiful so I’m always looking for new pieces to decorate with!

  2. Nice selection! I can’t put pictures on my walls because I rent and it’s against the rules. In my eyes, a home doesn’t feel like a home until there’s art on the walls.

  3. I am not sure if they scream nostalgia but it might be the ‘scrapbook’ style that gives it that aged, strange sort of feeling. I like it! I love the arrangement you have in the second photo.

    Brownie points for Totoro as well – one of my favourite characters from Japanese animation 😀
