Style is a commitment
You don’t find style, you commit to style.
📝 This is an important post and kind of sums up the tone of the newsletter. Sometimes we say we want to progress but we continue moving in circles, just a small shift in the right direction and we can be moving in upward spirals.
On Being a Pro
For the longest time, I would say I haven’t found my style. The truth is, I wasn’t ready to commit. I wanted to explore and try new things. But if clients don’t know what I’m selling. How can they buy it?
So I committed to writing the kind of art I make. It was time to stop exploring and start producing.
“I make energetic and witty illustrations with a comic sensibility.”
Then I make a piece that shows that. And another. And another. I show the world what I’m selling.
And they start buying.
Before I committed to a style, I would feel envious of all the different styles out there. I would think, I could do that!
But after committing, I stopped being envious and am able to really enjoy the different styles of my peers and heroes.
