At long last, more unfuckery! Today I attacked a literally-hidden corner.
I keep that painting there for a few reasons:
- It isn’t quite finished and I’ve been meaning to do something about that for ages
- I don’t have any particularly better place to store it
- It hides an otherwise terrible corner
There are 2 unused printers, an unused monitor (to be used soon), a tub of electronic stuff (already sorted), a crate full of sketchbooks, a bag full of sketchbooks, a pile of drawings and binders full of drawings, two piles of assorted papers, a box of old cards, and my paint cart.
There ended up being 36 sketchbooks, and I know I’ve gone through and gotten rid of sketchbooks from the crate and bag before… I tore useful drawings (which were then sorted/stored those appropriately) out of and got rid of some, kept in tact the oldest ones which I really want to keep, and removed drawings from and set aside those which weren’t fully used. I ended up tossing 22 sketchbooks, and it is amazing.
Paint cart got organized, assorted papers were tossed or filed, printers are staying there for now. The blue crate is full of blank sketchbooks and unused supplies (some of which was previously in a crate on the shelf, which now just contains old artworks, including the stuff which was kept from today). Painting is back in place in front of the corner, but now it’s not for purpose of hiding things, and there’s space to store inactive paintings behind the easel now!
It took an entire afternoon of 20/10s, but I no longer dread what lurks behind the easel. Thanks UfYH!
