Decorating: Prettying up my wall!

A few weeks ago I went to an anime convention in San Jose called Fanime. For me, it was more like a nice, relaxing vacation than anything else but I got a couple of art pieces from the Artist Alley there that I'm super in love with. I'm not one to try and justify paying a ton of money for art pieces, but when I see something I like I know I have to have it. Besides, cats from Sailor Moon and something related to League of Legends? How could I resist?

I posted this on my Instagram. It's sitting nicely above my desk. 
As you can see, there's not much on my wall. But that will soon change. 

Here's a close up of the artworks

In previous times, I've always just put up random things on my wall but I kinda want to be more conscious of what goes up now. I loved framing these two and I think all my future artwork will be framed as well. Framing just gives it a nice, clean structure and doesn't seem so random. I've talked about it several times before, but I hate decorating when I know I won't be living in the same place for a long time. I don't know how long I will be at this apartment, but I don't want to fill my wall with a bunch of stuff only to have to take it down. At the same time, I want my home to be a place where I can feel happy and be proud to be at. Over time, I hope to collect pieces of artwork that I can really cherish for years to come. Of course, I'm not talking about Picasso paintings. Let's be realistic, even if I could afford a fine art piece, I wouldn't put it on my wall. I'd rather support not-so-well-known artists that create art pieces I really LIKE based off characters and places I actually admire.

Do you have artwork hanging on your walls? If so, what do they mean to you?
