On choices that may make a drawing popular
This is the most popular illustration I made this year. It’s part of a series of 7 good drawings.
Here are some hypothesis on why it might be popular.
The shapes are a clear read
The subject matter is relatable
It engages multiple senses, texture engages your sense of touch, and there are a variety of flavors that become evoked. Sour. Savory. Sweet.
All 3 points have more to do with making choices than actual drawing. A big part of an illustrators job is making choices.
