I have been drawing since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I went to school for graphic design and after nearly a decade working in various agencies, game studios, and toy companies, I decided it was time to pursue my own vision for my work.
I started the Orlin Culture Shop as my moniker for commercial illustration in 2011 and have had the good fortune of illustrating for some of the most well known brands in the world. Through this work, I found my voice as an illustrator and honed my picture making abilities.
The next step of this journey is OCS 13, a shop which brings all of my beliefs, experiences and philosophy of aesthetics together. It is a place I can create freely, chasing the work within my soul, the work which can only be grappled into existence through unfettered exploration.
Each collection will feature new pieces, inspired by my childhood, my love of stories, and guided by the soul of the work itself. Follow along to see where it takes us...
