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.
In 2018 I published my first two books, Calligraphic Drawing: A How To Guide and Gallery Exploring the Art of the Flourish, and Spencerian Penmanship Practice Book: The Declaration of Independence: Example Sentences with Workbook Pages.
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.
Recent clients include: Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, Chloé, Couture Design Awards, Casa Dragones, Remy Martin Louis XIII, Art Institute of Chicago and Mohawk Fine Papers. In 2016 I provided calligraphy art for Opus Place Atlanta, the city's tallest condo building designed by Richard Meier. I have also provided calligraphy services for Mariah Carey, Elaine Wynn, Alexandra Balahoutis and Peony Lim.
As a member of IAMPETH (The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting) and The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes, 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 piano, fetch with my dog Wuffles and playing pinball.
