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 😊)

SIR ALAIN

A fairy tale centred on a knight who, after a battle with a witch, was changed from a man to a woman ... and takes it rather well.

CALL FOR DISABLED ILLUSTRATORS OF COLOR IN THE US

my wife is helping Affect to judge a call for illustrators! they're still looking for more artists to apply. Deadline is 9/12 at 11:59pm PST!

5 illustrators will be chosen to create 3 digital commissions each. Every artist will be paid $1800.

More details in these links:

there was a meme going around on twitter that was basically like "if you see this, draw what you're wearing right now". t-shirt + underwear has basically been my quarantine uniform

so, i've gotten REALLY into jojo's bizarre adventure these past couple months... here's me testing out a new pen, plus the color shift feature on a photo editing app ✌🏼

it's a screenshot since CSP for ipad doesn't allow you to save files until you commit to the fees, which i'm not quite ready for!

i get access to adobe CC through my day job, but i don't wanna rely on that forever, u kno?

unfortunately CSP isn't cmyk-compatible, and as someone who works for print, that's not really feasible :/ tomorrow i'll play around in affinity photo.

hummm......warmups that ended up being cooldowns because i'm going to bed!

(i'm testing out various adobe alternatives)

hi all, being Active Online has been difficult for me lately. i recently had to put down my cat unexpectedly and the experience was pretty traumatizing. i would like to work on some new stuff to share soon though πŸ’š

in the meantime, if you're interested, i've been re-activating my instagram account, using a queueing app to post a piece every weekday: instagram.com/binglinhu

i'm sharing old art i'm still proud of, and advancing chronologically until i reach my present work.

peace πŸ’›

Thank you for supporting this donation drive! 11 out of 13 pieces have sold, raising $504.31. I am rounding that up for a total of $550. For accountability, a screenshot of our collective donation is included. Keep fighting for justice, black life, and black futures!

Packages are ready to send and will be mailed today or tmrw. They are being sent in rigid mailers, which are processed differently from standard envelopes and require more postage (hence the multiple stamps)

bumping with another update: insect witch (3C) has just been claimed!

just these two remain πŸ’• check the rest of this thread for more info ⬆️

1A, 1C, 1D, 2A, 2B, 2C, 3A, and 3D are claimed!

1B lolita, 2D schoolkid, 3A tech, 3C insect, and 4A baker, are still available!

thanks so much all πŸ’› this is going faster than i expected 😭 you've raised at least $240, not including those who've chosen to donate extra

I learned about Regis Korchinski-Paquet's fundraiser, which is pretty far from its goal (gofundme.com/f/cggys2-justice-). I may split the funds; regardless, I'll post a screenshot for accountability once I'm able to make the donations
