About



loraine yow illustrator lolo-ology tech cartoonistHi. Loraine here. I can be quickly summed up as a bookworm, polymath, lover of spreadsheets and action movies.

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. Within 5 months of joining Upwork, I earned a coveted Top Rated status, and have maintained it ever since!  

My areas of expertise include whiteboard-style explainer doodles, data cartoons, article and instructional illustrations, and realistic portraits.

I'm more of a data scientist at heart than an artist, and as such, I gravitate towards projects in the tech space. I work with a lot of tech, financial, and medical teams to make their complex content fun and easily digestible.


Feel free to follow my freelancing adventures on Instagram (@lolo_ology) where I make my professional work (slightly) more interesting by scribbling cat doodles on them.
