Showcase & Discover Creative Work

As soon as I was old enough to hold a crayon, I began dreaming of worlds and trying to draw them. Of course, nothing that hit the paper came out exactly as it was in my head and from that moment on, I began pursuing the craft of illustration and design. As my skills grew, so did my imagination. I ended up finding a career in a number of creative industries, each one affording me unique opportunities to craft, create, and world build.

My most recent endeavor, Orlin Culture Shop (my own company), represents an amalgamation of all my experiences, from the early days of crayon scribbles to some of my more recent ventures as an employee at video game companies as well as LEGO.

I work hard to support my family, and hope to do business with anyone looking for custom illustration and graphics!
