Pinned toot

I'm Binglin, a nonbinary artist whose day job is at an aquarium doing graphic design. For fun, I like to knit and cook and draw furries. My goal is to keep exploring and growing my personal art practice, and to always keep trying new things. Here are a few different ways I like to work!

(I've got more links and tidbits on my bio 😊)

Here are last year's designs! (also available in the link above)

I've refined my lineless art style quite a bit in the past couple years!

I was looking through old phone pics and rediscovered this stream-of-consciousness crayon comics I made about my roommates’ (at the time) cats and I still really like it 🐈 1/3

coming up towards the end of my witchtobers! the last one is a self portrait, so not much of a character design :9 i'll post that tomorrow before i go on vacation

revisiting each of these pieces has been nice for me! i've been on a ~1 year hiatus from art and this was one of the last projects i did for myself before going on break. i'm still quite proud of these.

29. ghost witch πŸ—‘πŸ‘ she was drowned, but now she's back. she's holding a kampilan, a sword traditionally used by indigenous folks in the philippines

covering this figure in water reflections was a challenge, but i think it had good payoff 😊

hey, it's december!

this month, year after year, was once horrifically excruciating for me. 7 years ago i experienced a trauma. 3 years ago i made a comic processing it. last week i realized making this zine was legitimate therapy. today i am doing well.
