My name is Schin Loong and I am the calligrapher and artist for Open Ink Stand Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a professional graphic artist and illustrator with a BFA from Ringling College of Art & Design, I have over 10 years experience collaborating and creating illustration and lettering art for hundreds of individuals, companies and wedding planners.
My work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, Southern Weddings Magazine, 100 Layer Cake, Pen World Magazine, Dasherie, HBO's Game of Thrones Compendium and Photoshop Creative. My artwork has been seen in ImagineFX, Advanced Photoshop, Fantasy Artist Magazine, Digital Artist Magazine, Exotique and Expose.
Numerous notable clients include: Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, Chloé, Couture Design Awards, Casa Dragones, Remy Martin Louis XIII and Mohawk Fine Papers. In February 2016 I was contacted by Mariah Carey to pen her Valentines Day gifts and most recently I provided calligraphy art for Opus Place Midtown Atlanta, the city's tallest condo building designed by Richard Meier.
As a member of IAMPETH (The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting) and The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes, my work has been shown in various galleries in Las Vegas. I have taught and presented at College of Southern Nevada, Twig & Fig, Berkeley and Sahara West Library, Las Vegas. I have had the privilege to study under numerous Master Penmen including Michael Sull and Rosemary Buczek.
When I am not writing, I enjoy playing fetch with my dog Wuffles or playing PokemonGo.
