MY STUDENT/ARTIST KIT

As a Senior in high school and an art nerd at heart, I tend to carry around the basics for both school and doodles. My recent studyblr post with these photos took off and one of you asked me for a breakdown of what I haul around with me on a daily basis. 

Top photo - The Pencil Case (J)

1. Soft Erasers. Definitely an art nerd thing. Totally unnecessary and useless for most of ya’ll. I use them for detailed portrait rendering because they lift a little bit of the graphite without taking it all off the paper. The Prismacolor ones are $¾ each and can be found at Michael’s or an art supply store. 

2. Post it flags. These are the right size for my Moleskine and bullet journal. Get ALLL the colors! xD If you’re gonna carry them around make sure you have a tin or something. Otherwise the stacks fall apart and they lose the adhesive. 

3. Burt’s Bees lip balm. This is nearly $5 a tube but it will forever be my go to. The colors are gorgeous and they’re very sparkly :) It also has peppermint oil in it so it feels really nice. CVS is the easiest place to find it. Guava is my favorite color by far, but Grapefruit is nice too. 

4. Mechanical pencil leads in various sizes and softnesses. I usually have a lot more than three of these in my bag at a time. Softer/smaller leads can definitely only found at a specialty art store. I keep .7, .5, and .3 mm in HB or B at all times. Again, art nerd thing, and you probably don’t care. 

5. Staedler White rubber eraser. Self explanatory. 

6. PaperMate Tuff Stuff Eraser Stick. Beautiful tool for detailed portrait work. Can be sharpened with a razor. I would give up a lot of other rendering supplies for this thing. 

7. iPod Shuffle 6th gen. I prefer my Nano 4th gen to this because the Shuffle has terrible battery longevity but whatever. It was a gift. Also it has twice the storage as my Nano. 

8. Zebra Mildliners. Ya’ll know what these are already :P They’re great but not a must have by any means. I’m a fan but probably won’t buy them again when they run out. 

9. Staedler Pigment Liners. Originally a set of 6 but I lost one :( They’re incredible for note taking and I refuse to take math notes with anything else. Highlighters don’t smear them, they dry instantly, and they last 18hrs if you accidentally leave the cap off. They range in size from .05 to .8 mm. They’re like $20 a set and $6 to replace a missing one so that’s kinda rough. But again, I’d almost sacrifice a grade for these things and I legitimately panicked when I lost one. 

10. Staedler Triplus Fineliners. Again, pretty significant Studyblr staple. I haven’t used them much and I’m not a huge fan of colored pens tbh but they seem pretty nice. They do smear a little if you use highlighters over them. They feel cheaper than my other Staedler supplies, but whatever. Pretty useful overall but I might actually prefer the Pilot V8 pens (though less color variety).

11. Microns. Again, originally a set of 3 but I carry them around to supplement my missing Staedler Pigment Liner. A little cheaper overall than the Staedlers, but not nearly as nice. They tend to bleed too much, especially if you don’t keep the pen moving (for whatever magical reason, the Staedlers don’t bleed if you accidentally let the pen rest in the middle of a line). Also doesn’t dry as fast and can smear with highlighters.

12. Uniball Vision pens. There are better options out there to be honest. As far as rollerballs go, these are nice, but the ink isn’t as color-saturated as some others. It’s a nicely balanced pen tho, if you care about that sort of thing. 

13. Sharpie highlighters. Not much I have to say about these. They’re useful but not pretty. Oh well.

14. Mechanical pencils. .7 mm, .5 mm, and .3 mm. These are expensive to replace so I hang on to them as long as possible. The Pentel .7 can be found anywhere, same for .5 usually, but .3 is only carried at art supply stores. 

Bottom Photo - The Backpack

A. Electronics stuff. Phone charger, iPod charger, and emergency battery (only because I spent most of my time on campus outside on the slackline and I hate having to go inside to charge my music). I usually have a portable speaker in there too but I lost the aux cord for it :P

B. MacBook Air. I got the full map sticker on Etsy and the smaller stickers I printed off my own computer and laquered with fixative. Oh, except for the Stay Positive Bro sticker. I got that from the Stay Positive Bro site and you should totally rep their stuff as much as possible because I love everything they make. Also, Air’s are the bomb.com. Buy one. Infinitely better than Windows.

C. The Bottle. Can be found on Amazon. It smells weird 99% of the time and the Tritan isn’t good for you (apparently). I prefer my Smart Water bottle. It is cute though.

D. TI 30Xa calculator. This is actually a really nice all purpose calculator. Obviously it doesn’t graph, but I like it. Probably because it’s familiar and I’m faster on it than anything else. 

E. Earbud holder made from a tin of Icebreaker sours. Yup. 

F. Embroidered Jansport Backpack. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen a higher quality backpack to spend 8 hours embroidering, but I’ll try to keep it limping along for another semester or two before the straps rip out. 

G. Mead notebook w/ sharpie. I like these notebooks because the pages are 8.5x11 when ripped out, so they usually fit into a looseleaf textbook really nicely. Just nice notebooks overall. 

H. Urban Ears Limited Ed. Plattan Headphones. Love these. Almost broke them the first week I had them by tripping over the cord (literally fell in the middle of the campus center because the cord was wrapped around my Vans and the headphones were around my neck) but somehow they survived. Pretty awesome sound quality for $50. 

I. Molang Diary. Best planner ever <3 Well, besides KiKi planners maybe, but Molang’s are way cheaper, and they come with stickers, and they’re adorable. Definitely recommend. I’m gonna do a separate post on them later. 

J. Pencil Case. I got this from IUPUI’s bookstore so idk where else it’s available. I think it may have been designed by our own design students so… good luck finding it if you want one. 

K. Kindle Paperwhite. I haven’t found this incredibly useful as far as electronic devices go but I do use it for English classes and pleasure reading. It’s a nice Kindle and very reasonably priced. 

L. Nokia Lumia 635. Whoever decided a windows phone and a mac computer was a good idea (me) is an idiot. But it’s a good interim phone if you’re looking for something cheap and relatively indestructible.
