You can follow my work and what I'm learning on my Instagram!
Here is my first set of 4! You're looking at A, G, P, and W.
I pushed through several roadblocks within this set. There were some setbacks, but I'm proud of myself for continuing to show up and complete these initial pieces. Through doing this I feel more confident towards defining my visual language and how I problem solve.
I've included my final illustrations and a few sketches and thumbnails for each. Feedback is always welcomed my friends and I appreciate you looking at my work <3
Alrighty - here's the plan below. Gunna make a lot of art dedicated to my home, Detroit and all its wonderful quirks.
6 STYLE QUESTIONS
These answers are deeply personal, but I thought I'd post them anyway in case there's others who can relate - you're not alone!

I found several unifying threads as I researched their paths more deeply. - INNOVATION: their work is unlike anything that had been done before them - MAKING ART FOR THE JOY OF IT - EACH CREATES THEIR OWN WORLD: it may be based in our world, but they've truly captured something special and inviting about the way they see the world.
