Hello there.

Howard Lin

Concept Artist/ Illustrator

I am an illustrator with understanding, skills, and experience in a wide range of medium and styles. If you are in need of someone who is skilled, creative, and responsible. You will surely be glad to know that you need to look no further than the headings of this page. I can work both digitally and traditionally, and my greatest weakness is cinnamon.

“He’s one of my best students!” – Glenn Chadwick, professor of Seneca’s School of Creative Arts and Animation.

I've always enjoyed coming up with new ideas and making them reality with my own fragile and disproportionate hands, and I will be glad to lend them to you. My life long dream is to become a concept artist for something great.

“He’s cool I guess.” – Mei-Lin Shao, My mom.
