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 😊)
i've had to put in some extra work to ground myself lately, which includes taking self-portraits:
(shaky ink drawing of a heavily knotted rope and the phrase "There is no better time or place.")
(shaky ink drawing of a spool of thread with the phrase "Leave sufficient air" written out)
(shaky ink drawing of a pair of headphones with the phrase "Check the locks nightly" written out)
(shaky ink drawing of a desk fan with the phrase "All hail the mini-scoop" written out)
Been doing a lot of inks on tinted paper with Copic markers lately. Enjoy!
Don't forget I'm doing #inktober this year, and you can get an ink for yourself at bit.ly/ZelaphasInktober2019

important crustacean news! Ghost crabs use teeth in their stomach to growl at their enemies
"X-ray fluoroscopy videos revealed that the rasping sounds coincided with the movements of the teeth in their foreguts, known as gastric mills"
the article also notes other mechanisms ghost crabs use to signal each other–maybe the kind of nuanced sociality needed living close by each other in burrows
found these lingonberries growing in new hampshire :3
