Things on the Walls of My Childhood Room

  1. Homemade Mondrian painting
    I love me some 20th century modernist art movements, and this seemed like the easiest to reproduce.
  2. Set piece from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
    Five years ago I played Augustus Gloop (fat suit and all) in a children's theatre production of Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and this was a window covering in a giant clock that I popped my head through every time a new kid got taken away by the Oompa Loompas.
  3. Caricature circa age 8
    I think this was from my dad's work event many years ago. This is still the aesthetic to which I aspire today.
  4. Canvas print of cassettes
    I just though it was cool and a good addition to my music corner (some African drums, a keyboard, and my CD collection).
  5. State quarter collection
    Not technically ON my wall, but it is prominently on display. VERY proud of this, still collecting the national parks quarters.
  6. Portrait painted by my dad circa age 10
    Bless his heart and his painting phase that lasted about six months. I know it looks like a monkey but honestly it was pretty accurate upon its creation.
  7. The Notorious PUG print
    Generous birthday gift from the squad, combining my love of hip hop culture and pugs. Related, I used to own a Notorious B.I.G. poster and had it up for two years of college.
  8. Needlepoints made by my mom
    Had these since I was a wee baby. Which makes the top one weird because we never had a dog growing up...
  9. College diploma
    Also not ON the wall... Thanks for sending me to college, parents!
  10. IDK how to explain this one
