Hello, world.

I am Burak Cinar, a 2D Game Artist & Illustrator based in Leamington Spa, United Kingdom with my lovely wife Lorin.

My experience is mainly on Games, but from time to time, I am working for Animation Industry & Magazines too. I've studied Graphic Design, and because of that, I have a never-ending taste for simple iconic shapes.

I see all design briefs as puzzles, that waiting to be solved. Often, it requires different art styles and different toolsets. Because of that, I am invested in changing the way I work, and the tools that I have, on daily basis.

You can reach me out for full-time positions & freelance work.
