About Lorin

I have more than 20 years' experience drawing at theme parks, shopping malls, state fairs, festivals, birthday parties, company parties, weddings, trade shows, and many other venues. A lot of the jobs I've done have been right here in Texas, but I've also had work in Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and even overseas in Seoul, Korea. I served on the ISCA Board of Directors for 5 years, and was President of the organization in 2013. Having drawn thousands of people over the years, I pride myself on getting a solid likeness, and I feel privileged to do artwork for a living.

Summer of Starscream

A year and a half ago, I began listening to this podcast: As you might guess, it reviews & talks about various Transformers TV shows & movies. It’s run by 2 musicians out of Chicago, and it’s VERY entertaining! And it’s what inspired me to begin doing the series of drawings I posted about recently. … Continue reading »

Barf, a Chewbacca rip-off, played by the late, great John Candy. Hot-shot pilot Lone Starr, played by Bill Pullman. The comical villain, Dark Helmet, played by diminutive … Continue reading »

More Than Meets the….Y’know.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: Recently, I figured I would try drawing some fan art of “Transformers” characters from the ’80s and ’90s. The inspiration to do so came from listening to a podcast (OptimusPrimeCast.com), in which they talk about the cartoons, and develop little in-jokes along the way. The show is very funny … Continue reading »

“To Explore Strange, New Faces…”

50 years ago, I…I wasn’t born yet. But in September of 1966, the very first episode of “Star Trek” aired on TV. I never actually watched it when I was a kid, but as a fan of sci-fi, I was always aware of it. In 1996, during my last year of college, I decided to … Continue reading »

OK…So I was Wrong.

All right. The new “Star Wars” movie has been out for over a month, and I’ve already seen it THREE TIMES. Despite my previous post about “Farewell to Star Wars”….where I speculated that this would be the jumping-off point for my interest in this series….I can’t deny that I really loved this movie! It’s not … Continue reading »
