Hey, everyone! Just wanted to write down what I've been thinking a lot about lately. Since I started drawing seriously again after so many years, I've been jumping around and trying to find a style that I like. Not just drawing, but also a style of painting. This past year I've really been putting in a lot of effort and progressing, but I still haven't found a consistent style. 

I've been wanting to fill my portfolio with kid lit-friendly artwork, because I would really love to be a children's illustrator. So far though I don't think my artwork has reflected that. I don't know. I'm just unsatisfied with my artwork and it bugs me.

Then, today, I started thinking that I shouldn't even be trying to limit myself to one type of style. I feel like different works of art look better in one style or another. I still want my work to feel like 'me' though, you know? I want people to see my work and know I drew it, the way I can identify so many artists that I admire.

So this is what I've decided to do (and hopefully I'll follow through with it); I'm going to start studying all kinds of kid lit art, past and present, and see what kids respond best to. Any work that comes from this will be solely for my portfolio and I'll continue working on personal work, the way I want to. 

Wish me luck!

P.S. I'd love to hear what you guys think about style (in general) and what your goals are for your artwork. Is it purely a hobby or do you have bigger plans?

Look, I drew a man! After an entire day of drawing absolute crap, I managed to get this done. It's Tristran and Yvaine. Tristran's clothes are a bit off (a little more 1920s), but I'm okay with that.

Super old, but has anyone else read or seen Stardust? I admit I liked the ending of the movie more because the book ending made me cry.

I think I want to make more traditional art this month, I really need the practice. Done with watercolor and a little colored pencil.
