Finding my style & colors (they were RIGHT THERE!!!)

Finding my style & colors (they were RIGHT THERE!!!) - student project

Style Hindsight

Well, this feels insane. I was an accounts manager for an agency in LA for a few years. Turns out when you spend all your time obsessing over illustrations on Pinterest and on the phone with the designers...you maybe should rethink what you're doing. These are all from my art board from that time

I'll echo others on here...it was really creepy to realize that a bunch of the same colors popped up over and over again! I wasn't expecting so much pink, but I do love this salmon color. The colors overall are colorful and bright, but just slightly muted (that muted tone continues below too); they're also colors I realize now are in my apartment as well (right under my nose!)

I really enjoy small lines and intricate patterns, especially when juxtaposed within or next to exaggerated space. There's a mix of line work...some of the work is lined in black, others are lined with texture; the key being that there's a mix of both.

I'm not gonna lie...I had trouble with this mentally. I kept thinking: Shape, shape, shape...but once I saw all my favorite images together I started noticing round and organic shapes. Overall, with a playful tone.
