Artwork Holder

I have now been through 2 quarters at the Art Institute and in that time I have accumulated art work, with no place to put it. I originally was putting everything by my supplies (which now has no space in it but I'll deal with that one later) and slowly became an eye soar. As you can see to the right. Our apartment isn't too large so there isn't many places to put it, so I decided to put it in a place that not everyone would have to look at it.

Recently Chris bought a box to ship somethings he was selling on eBay, but then ended up not using it because the person who bought it was in our town. Yesterday I choose to take that box and figure out what to make to hold my giant sketch papers.

What I found that would be easiest and hopefully take the least time was to make one of those magazine holders that you can buy at Wal-mart or Ikea, but Giant size. I was going to make a tutorial out of it but I then found out I didn't really know what I was doing. But, I fully put it together yesterday and started covering it with magazine papers and then fully covered it today. I used ads, articles and pictures from Cosmo and Marie Claire and of course they all had something that I liked on them.

Granted it isn't the best looking thing that I have ever created but it was a quick fix to my problem. Later on I will make something out of wood or just something a little more sturdy than cardboard.

I am super excited for this blog. I will be posting things like this and things I will be doing for school and so on and so fourth.
