hello everyone! i compiled a looong list of cute and aesthetic supplies to help you guys pick out things for your back to school shopping. most of this stuff is not neccisarry at all for having a studyblr, or a succesful school year, but is a lot of fun to have. this list is very long so feel free to do what im going to and pick out a few favorites!! at the end i will link the amazon wish list so you can see it all in one place.
the “amazon finds” are sectioned into the categories, “writing, highlighting, and coloring”, “supplies” which includes everything from notebooks to stickers and washi tape to pencil cases, “backpacks”. “lunch and snack supplies” and “daily carry” which has cute stuff to have at your desk, stuff to make your life easier and cute self care goods.
i have it enabled so that people may send me something from the list if they really want to, but my no means should you feel like you have too! make sure when you put something in your cart you are sending it to yourself and not me by accident!
I'm so sick of my job that I'm ready to go into work tomorrow and scream at the first customer that walks in the door.
If I ever win the lottery that would be the first thing I do. Well, to the assholes at my job anyways. I technically don’t deal with customers anymore, just spoiled rotten residents who have learned that purposefully bad behavior gets them what they want(seriously my coworkers have entirely just given up with some of them and just let them eat ice cream whenever they want to get them to shut up). I know that sounds bad, and trust me I feel guilty, but having hot scalding coffee thrown at you, more than once, simply because you asked someone to take off their shoes and put them away can make it difficult to keep an open mind. That and coworkers that think everything I do is wrong even though I’m trying my damnedest. I doubt I’d ever win the lottery, but if I did I think the satisfaction of telling everyone off and quitting would be way better than any mansion, vacation, or gold plated color pencil set I could buy. There is just something about being able to stand up for yourself without fear that is just the goddamn mother fucking dream. -Abby
Typically, any desk photo can have several things that point to an artist and several things that point to a writer. However, the line can be blurred when it comes to things such as a multitude of notebooks and pencils.
While looking at an artist, typically their notebooks will be specific to not have lines, as lines can get in the way of a drawing. While looking at a notebook, if it says “college-ruled” or “wide-ruled”, it is a notebook meant for writing, and points to a writer over an artist. (Noting that this works for people who own drawing pads/notepads that are spiral)
The amount of pencils can go either the way of an artist or a writer. However, an artist tends to have other things, ranging from pens to markers to colored pencils, that set them apart. If you only have pencils, you will have to cross-reference with other details.
Typically, if it is a desk photo that shows someone’s desktop, an artist will be identified through apps such as MS Paint or Photoshop. Meanwhile, a writer will have Microsoft Word and many word documents sitting on their desktop. However, if there is a multitude of folders, try reading the names of the folders to see if it gives any hint of what may be inside (i.e. “screenshots” or “fandom photos” for a drawer, “stories” and “fanfiction” for a writer).
SPIRAL notebooks can point to a writer or an artist. An artist will likely have blank spiral notebooks for drawing. Look for key words on the notebooks such as “college-ruled/wide-ruled” as your key.
Look at the types of writing tools. An artist will have things outside of pencils and pens, such as markers, colored pencils and graphite pencils. This deduction does need to be cross-referenced with another deduction to be 100% sure.
If you can see the contents of someone’s desktop (which is not frequent), use it to your advantage. An artist will have apps like MS Paint and Photoshop, whereas a writer will have Microsoft Word.
If there are many folders on a desktop (if you are examining a desktop), try and read the folder names and cross-reference with what you have to find out if they are an artist or writer.
Have fun deducing photos!
(P.S. As a side note, please try to submit to me some things you would like me to point out in photos. Also, if you wish, send me photos of your desk/bookcase so I can deduce what I can!)

My mom wants me to design a tattoo for her so she’s buying me goodass art supplies in return for me designing a tattoo for her and I’m kinda excited to get back into art again. It was such a big part of my life before good ole depression took over my life
I was actually not lazy the last few days. I was just focusing on learning to draw Deadpool. I didn’t want to annoy you guys with him, so I’m posting all the drawings and sketches in my other blog adeadpooladay.tumblr.com
In this case, however, I think it might interest some of you that I’ve started trying out some coloring. I’ve bought the Faber-Castell PITT shades of grey pen set and a noname 72 color pencil set. I’m still figuring out how to use them, so I have only tried them on Deadpool drawings. Maybe I’ll do some other colorful drawings here in the future too.
Anybody interested in hearing my progress with colors? What are your experiences? Do you know good tutorials to learn more about colors?
Koh-I-Noor Gioconda 5.5/6mm Metallic Colored Clutch Pencil Leads set of six colors, color charts (white and black supports) done with a Koh-I-Noor 5.5/6mm all metal clutch pencil, which is a bit shorter in length then these leads; however, that is okay and I do have other clutch pencil options in this size.
I believe these colored leads look better on the white support. Then again I have yet to use these to produce a drawing and/or sketch on the black support. That could change my opinion, but I am happy that the metallic colors do show up on the black paper. I have had metallic colors that should show up on a black or other colored paper supports; however, those colors were very dull when used on such supports. I cannot complain about that this time, which is good.
I do like these leads. Each one layers down colors nice and smoothly building up a thicker and fuller color upon the paper. I did not need to sharpen any of these leads; yet, but I am confident that being that these do not need to sharpen like a pencil, which may break all the time during sharpening, is a plus. Even though I have not produced any art work with these clutch pencil leads. I will still recommend these metallic colored leads.
Lastly these will be great for on the go usage because the set is nice and compact. The case these are stored in as foam padding, which protects the leads from breakage; so, there is no worries about these leads breaking during transport. The fact these do not need to be sharpened as often as a wooden pencil is also good for on the go usage. The only draw back is having to constantly switch out leads to change colors before using the color of choice, and carrying a bunch of 5.5/6mm clutch pencils (that are usually metal) would be inconvenient.
I do not know if these color leads are lightfast. I do not know if these are watersoluble or waterfast; therefore, I do not know how these leads will work with wet media or mixed media subjects. I do apologize for not searching for such information, which I am sure is easily found online from other sources, which may include Koh-I-Noor itself. I also could test for waterfastness or watersolublity. (Is that a real word? It is now!) But I did not choose to make a quick color chart or sketch with these leads on a support that handles moisture; so, I did not add any water to these color charts. (I used my Canson sketchbook and a black paper Pentalic Traveler’s Pocket Journal and Sketch sketchbook for these color charts.) Lastly I have no means of test lightfastness quickly. I just made these color charts. I would have to leave these exposed to sunlight for a month or more, and that is not a true industry standard for a lightfastness test.
Ma got me some colored pencils, nice 72 pc set from Staedtler, so i started drawing again, this is part of the second page of a new sketchbook, i haven’t colored anything in QUITE awhile but i figured id give it a shot!
