I know it has a been a while since someone has showed me their wall but alas, the very talented Ali J has come to the rescue and has very generously opened her home to us and boy does she have a lot to show. I expect nothing less from this talented Illustrator. You may click on the images for a closer look.
This is the back of my door in my new studio space. I love to close the door and see them. The artworks from left to right are - Catherine Campbell (Frankie Magazine Poster), Candice Jean, One Peach A Day, Candice Jean , My Charlie Girl, and an artwork by a local artist.

I cannot only share illustrations or artwork - I also have jewellery on display. Here in my bedroom I have a canvas panel wrapped with handmade paper featuring a wide display of earrings purchased from a variety of etsy sellers over the past year.
I wanted to share my rather different kitchen. It is tiny, and used to be bright yellow. Using a soft mint green, chocolate brown and soft cream in paint colours I painted a rather modern and abstract pattern across the walls. Above the cutting board the wall tells you quite simply to 'eat'. A little artwork in itself. I'm proud also to say that I hand wrote the words, I think it is pretty cool.
My loungeroom. I was watching Law and Order Criminal Intent at the time. I like to watch crime on TV and sketch or draw. Especially longer episodes where you can just listen to what is happening, and you don't necessarily have to see it visually. Above the TV I have a mixed media drawing that I purchased from one of my fellow art students in college. Her name was Eloise, and I just adored her work and her ability to create atmosphere. Next to the TV cabinet is a panel tri fold screen with images from past Curvy magazines.
I love orchids, so my bathroom has a gorgeous orchid in the corner of the cabinet with some japanese inspired artwork I found at a secondhand store for $1. It is so calm, it really relaxes me.
This is the wall of my studio space. I have a shelving unit with an owl, some little containers of buttons and one of my prints on a shelf. Then on the wall I have lots of artwork. Some are my own but others are from Abbey McCulloch, Marmeecraft, Scarlettcat, The Black Apple, Belle and Boo.
This is the postcard feature part of my wall. All postcard sized works are up here just above my desk. There are artworks of my own along with The Black Apple, Jen Corace, Bindi Booth and many others. It is so fun and lively.
Another wall of my studio space. This features a poster by Frankie Magazine drawn by Sean Morris. Then two prints of The Black Apple. I have my Blythe doll, a plush owl from Craftpaca, two plush dolls from Brown Paper Bag, and my large Matroyshka doll.
One of my charcoal drawings from my time at Art College. I just love the simplicity in the form which is echoed by the way it is display hung simple on a wall with a nail and a clip.
I'm a Star Trek junkie and not sorry to admit it. The first framed work is of Star Trek Voyager, my favourite of the entire series. The main picture is of all four Star Trek captains. I also have signed cast photographs that I just treasure, just to the left of this picture.

Last of all my bright pink feature wall of my bedroom. It is more of a scarlett red in colour. I have a vintage bag hanging up that was my mothers, then I have a little artwork from Kendra Binney. That was the first item I ever purchased off of Etsy and it also taught me to double check measurements before purchasing! I hope to own a bigger work of hers in the future.
If you would like to show off the artwork in your home, please drop me a line at pulpsushi [@] gmail.com.
