I was just thinking about this, because I just realized I had none at all - no prints, no posters, none of my own kindergarten sketches. (My first published work, "Bird Standing", was printed in my grammar school yearbook. I've been fighting to get the rights back ever since.) Do you guys decorate your pads with art at all? Even if its your own, or prints of old masters, movie posters, etc, I'm curious.
I have a world map on my wall. The rest are technical sketches of the stuff I'm working on.
There are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and THE TRUTH.
I have a crapload of posters in my room, everything from spiderman posters, to warped tour posters and stuff. My living room has a pastel portrait i did when i was 16. And then theres a couple random paintings and a painting of my great grandmother.
My old house has all the art. My uncle used to paint so he had everything all over the place.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
I have alot of my own works hanging in my house (my wife tells me which ones i should keep) and last year i started trading with my friends, so i have a small, but growing collection of cool stuff from them and a few of the famous danish "big dudes" bought cheaper than normal from the galleries i work with. Looks pretty good.
My parents actually have an old painting of my dad up as well. Supposedly, its all mine when they're gone. Woohoo.
But actually, I meant you guys specifically, not your parents and families. I was wondering what you, as artists, have chosen to decorate your rooms or apartments or studios with.
I have several oil-paintings in my room, a whole lot of posters, several calenders (the nice scenery ones to inspire my enviros), a 3d/bump map of the country and some printed out pics.

You lead me on.
I´ve got some of my paintings, only the cool and dark ones , a poster from Buffy (yeah, I know... I´m heading 28 and still don´t wanna be an adult) and 3 pinboards in order to organize my work stuff, schedules...etc. Oh, and 2 more pinboards in the office.
We have mostly original art, mine, my bf's, my friends', my mom's and since we exhibit other people's stuff in restaurants, we have their stuff lying around as well, we try to hang them when we have space. I also have Brom calendars
Paintings (landscapes and still lifes) my grandmother painted when she was younger.
...And some postcards made out of paintings of Nicholas II...
I have my own drawings hanging all over one wall in my room. Then there are photographs.. Sometimes I go wild and put up a national geographic poster or somesuch.
I have some sort of Fire and Ice photo poster flipbook, thing...
Yeah, otherwise my walls are bare.
I've a crapload of oils that I've done (several not hung yet), a few photos that my grandfather took (he was an amature photographer during the 30's/40's, and then a Naval Photographer's assistant during WWII in the Pacific - got some cool shit there), a piece my mother did, a Micheal Whelan poster (The White Dragon) and a Todd Lockwood print. Oh, and a 1985 Ventura County Fair poster. And two large hand made Thai fans that a client gave me years ago.
I think that's everything.
Oh, and of course, a ton of kids drawings from my two boys.
my father is an artist so every wall in my home is coverd in abstract art.
well, trying not to have art too close to where i draw but i have the marko drawing i got from Jeff Jaws in SF ( thanks man love u =) )
and a few llewellyn prints and a dodowa print. pretty much it
Self-improvement is masturbation, Self-destruction on the other hand....
I rarely hang my own art... given that I rarely paint traditionally anymore.
I do have one framed piece of art on my wall, among the Totoro wall scroll and catfish poster...
...and animation cel from The Last Unicorn. Yeah baby!
I would like to get more art prints on my wall, but the posters from the MFA are so damn pricey. I'm saving for a Sargent coffee table book from there anyway.
i usually hang original paintings.
and of those, only one is mine.
staring at my own stuff will make me hate it in no time.
some of these i JUST got, and am very excited...
greg ruth: (though, the original has some variations)
jason chan: (a print, of course)
cassandra barney: (this one is a print too...but my wife LOVES her stuff)
i also have a few moebius prints hanging up,
but cant seem to find any images of them.

"My home is my Domain. I put up what I want, where I want it."
Well let me backtrack a bit. The house is off limits for me. No posters or paintings of any kind on the walls. My sons do have every swimsuit model poster on their walls though.
My shop, where I do paint has plenty of stuff though. Frazetta posters as well as other artists. Some of my own stuff too. I also have sketches, drawings and wips taped to some of the walls and doors. A private little world I can sink into at times.Quite inspiring and peaceful.
I have one oil painting ( copy of Pieter Claesz's " Breakfast with Ham", ) and one pastel landscape. I'm planning to have more. Have a lot of dear to me small statures, interesting boxes, decorative stuff. Mine- no, hehehe, even framed some, still, no desire to hang them. I'm hanging only the art I can look at and never get bored.
my bedroom is wallpapered in old movie posters (60's mainly, chosen for visual appeal over movie quality) and framed silver age comics, my livingroom/studio has 2 of my own paintings, a Berkey prelim, some framed drawings, and a framed copy of the New York Herald (April 15th, 1865) with the headline "Important: The Assassination of President Lincoln" that cost me less than a peperoni pizza. Used to have a Geof Darrow drawing too, but I gave it to a friend before I ever got to hanging it.
i have a number of works, mostly just pretty pictures but there are a few of interest that were recently inherited. An oil by Karl Heffner (look him up) which is pretty cool, a watercolour by William Wyld, a number of screenprints by my aunt who is a cool printmaker and a couple of landscape studies by my uncle who's a painter. also there are 5 portraits of family and relations (2 of which are boring as hell). Of course, these are all my parents' rather than actually mine. i just have friends' drawings and paintings that i've got through exchanges for my own drawings and paintings.
some day i'll find a bag of money sitting, unwanted, in the street and i'll go buy loadsa cool stuff for myself
The walls in my room have been completely blank ever since it was decorated last summer. I've got the frames, I'm just too picky on what to put up.
As for the computer room I have two chinese scrolls with something like "Keep working towards your goal" or "Work hard and you'll be rewarded"....I should get them translated, lol.
In thr living we have one landscape oil painting and a 4-piece slab thing. I don't know what it's called, but it's decorated using shells.
My dan bau is decorated in the same way.
I want a mahogany cello with such details - my mum said we could probably have it made in Việt Nam.
More shell stuff!
It's so beautiful...
Dan, you bastard, I love that Rex winter painting! Oh well......that least I know I can go visit it.
Here is a few in my office. Sorry about the poor picture quality. It's taken from my new (as in first) cell phone...I can barely figure out how to use it.
ive got a Poster of the Silver-Surfer from Dusko and a painting of the 4 apocalyptic horsemen of unknown origin....wtf ?
GAH!!!Originally Posted by Irene Gallo...my new (as in first) cell phone]
i never thought it would happen!
thats it, you are doomed to live the life-of-dependency we have all been afflicted with!
now, you have to get some pics of your j.j.palencar at home too.
