The Beginning


I feel as though I should introduce myself. My name is Lin. (they/them, he/him) I am twenty-two years old, and a certified Gay Mess™. Yes, I am certified. No, don't ask to see my diploma. It's lost in the void. As are we.

This is my obligatory introduction to my website. Statistically speaking, it is unlikely that you will read this. Statistically speaking, it's amazing that you made your way to this little corner of the internet. So....welcome?

This blog will act as a newsletter of sorts, and will catalog what I'm doing at the present moment in my artistic career. I may, also, talk about other things. I am unaware of any sort of clairvoyance I may possess--as such, I cannot for sure say what this blog/newsletter will contain. Are you still reading?


That's okay.

Did you know that a cow-bison hybrid is referred to as a beefalo?

I'll be honest, I'm not sure if that's true. I read that on the internet, and as we all know, the internet is a fun filled place for all manner of half truths/lies.

Am I even telling the truth? You don't know if I truly am as I say. You are placing a certain amount of trust into me to not lie to you.

I could say that I took this photo, but I would be lying. This is not my studio space. I do not leave half open paints all over my table. I don't even have a table. I'll admit, some of those paints do look particularly delicious.

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy the rest of your day, wherever you are in life.

I'm still trying.
