My style or look can range from this:
Gauache Baby Girl and Birthday Boy (this was actually my first try...maybe not a good example of gauache! But the cartoony look is right on.)
I brought this topic up in class, and my teacher confessed that not only do many artists have the same problem- but she and her colleagues have also been discussing it lately! They have come to the conclusion that for an up-and-coming artist such as myself, being consistent with a style or look will help me land a job better. That way, when I send out my quarterly postcards with sample art to art directors, my style will pop into their heads for a story.
That's all well and good, but I don't know what I want to do! I really love it all! I guess it will just take me some time to get a better feel for what I like doing a lot, and what I like doing the least.
But in the meantime, here's a story about an artist who's got multiple styles pretty down pat: http://pbjunkies.blogspot.com/2010/05/speaking-of-styles-melanie-watt.html See more of her books on her Amazon Page!
