About Me

My name is Sam Mulhern and I am the author of Mechanicalpen.

  • Male,
  • 20 years old,

Vending at Sugar City Con 2016

But there’s no denying it, I’m a large part chronic procrastinator who has a tough time making decisions. That’s why I thought I could put my skills in these areas to use and help you out with finding some interesting pastimes, thrilling games to play and give you a place to just scroll through and look at pictures.

As a result of procrastinating, I have amassed a multitude of interests, so here are just a few hobbies, musical artists, movies and games that I adore to bits:

  • Hobbies: Sketching, Origami & Paper craft, Crocheting, Reading Comics & Manga
  • Music: Seekae, Odesza, Porter Robinson, Madeon, Daft Punk
  • Movies: Star Wars (VI is best, lets be honest), Big Hero 6, When Harry Met Sally, Bourne Trilogy
  • Games: Limbo, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, Year Walk, Fez

I post articles once a week –
Thur/Fri: Sketch Weekly

See you then!

  4. Hi Sam,
    Thank you for checking out my blog. How cool you are Australian. I am an Australian living in the US. I used to live in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. I also worked in Financials. Math and art compliment each other!

  7. I really love your pen and ink work. I wanted to be a cartoonist a half century ago and mastering the rapidiograph pen seemed like the thing to do. Now, of course, they don’t make such a thing any more and modern artists have not even heard of it. But it controlled the line width with a special setting. I see in your work the ability to adjust that intuitively. I believe you have great things ahead of you. Keep on whipping that pen around the drawing board!
