I think we are all having an identity crisis here at tea and crayons! Our promo packs are certainly giving us food for thought haha :) I think Rachel puts it so well in the post below but in this world of SO MANY talented illustrators it is hard to find out what your distinctive style is..
Also the one thing that often concerns me is that if people associate me with a certain style does that mean I have to continue in that style forever more? If at the moment I only work in ink and pen does that mean I cannot start using collage for example? I have to admit I am a bit of a fickle person and so I can often get over exited about a new method or style of drawing before discovering something new and being crazy about that.
I would know straight away it was by her. And even when she does realistic portrait commissions you can still tell a mile off they are by her.
If I was to show you a few different illustrations by me would you recognize they all had my style?
I am holding a little survey over at my blog to try and figure it all out :) I would love it if you could help me out! (It is a giveaway too) Thanks for your time xoxo
