About

Hi. LoLo here. Cat lady, poly-sci nerd, bookworm, lover of good and bad action flicks.
 
Though I’m a political scientist by training, I’ve worked as a freelance illustrator since 2016 after having honed a hobby skill to a professional level through thousands of hours of practice.
 
My specialties include portrait/headshot drawing, article illustrations, information design, instructional illustrations, and cartooning.
 
I particularly enjoy illustrating for instructional/technical purposes, as I'm more of a scientist at heart than an artist. I have a background in poly-sci and a deep interest in technology, information design, and neuroscience. I love nurturing of all these interests (I read 50 books every year and 5-10 articles a day) as their unexpected confluence often produces some very creative solutions.
 
I’m thoughtful and dedicated to every project I choose to work on. I’m known for my ability to understand the needs of the client/project and deliver exactly what’s needed. Or uncover what that is, as it is oftentimes an unknown that needs discovering.
Within 5 months of joined Upwork, I earned a Top Rated status, and have maintained it ever since! My glowing client reviews warm my heart and keep the wind at my back.
 
Feel free to follow my freelancing adventures on Instagram (@lolo_ology) where I make my professional work more interesting by scribbling cat doodles on them.
