Halfway out of the dark

Hey, I'm Sam, known sometimes as Ayden other places around the web. I'm a 22-year-old animator/illustrator in wonderful Boulder, Colorado. I enjoy tea and gryphons and nerdy stuff. Yah.

So a while back my bf scaredycrownest had possibly the best Goodwill find I’ve ever seen: a bag of 36 working copic markers for $3.75. There is no way the employees knew what they were. Hell, I somehow think whoever donated them didn’t realize, either. What the heck.
Anyway we went home and played with them right away. I had both these tree drawings done from earlier client work, so he colored the one on the right and I did the one on the left :)

Random old school stuff that hasn’t ended up on the blog

"Mummeels" concept sketches for a board game assignment we did that’s too confusing to explain xD

Bottom ones were based on my peacock eel Eelface.

I’m not really usually too nutty on my period but WOW I am just a hormonal mess this go ‘round? Like I’m really sad and then RLY ANGRY and frustrated and then sadddd and like manically industrious and then really clingy and my acne is SO. BAD. And wowee body whaaat the helk. Idk how other women deal with this that have bad ones every time.

In other news I am a pretty good cook but for some reason I am literally incapable of doing eggs. I fucked up hardboiling some earlier and I mean, how the hell do you even do that. I did manage an edible pair of overeasy ones for the first time though.

The picture’s much taller and wider than my scanner bed, so it’s cut off a bit.
