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.

Some Recent Work…

Here are a few of my recent live drawings. The first 2 are from a trade show I worked a couple of weeks ago. It was a 1970s-themed event. So basically, all I had to do was to draw people in semi-outrageous clothing. This 3rd image is from Saturday at the mall. The girl was … Continue reading »

Steve!

Here’s another step-by-step color process. This time, we have my buddy Steve Hearn from London! We’ll begin with a finished, inked, black & white drawing (Steve is English, and folks over there tend to say “CHEERS” a lot…hence the silly gag). Next, the first bit of color, concentrating mostly on the flesh tones. Now for … Continue reading »
