Lincoln moves fluidly back and forth between traditional, tactile mediums and digital mediums to execute ideas— often times incorporating both within a piece. A firm believer that the traditional informs the digital, he continues training and experimenting in both. Lincoln's primary tactile mediums include oils, wax crayon and colored pencil, and monoprints. His digital expertise includes the use of the Cintiq via Photoshop and InDesign, and Storyboard Pro.

However, even with all of the various approaches to technique and execution, one thing stands out as the most vital component in Lincoln's work— Story. And it is what is what he espouses in all of the courses he teaches as the chief ingredient toward success in the entertainment art world.
