Experimenting with Style

I’m having fun with my art again.

I have been fortunate enough to remember that art is best when it’s playful, and I’m revisiting my Illustration work with a renewed interest in letting some of the process show through and trying to not squeeze the life out of it by overworking it.  Part of my search for a more dynamic style that is both fresh and true to my voice is paying attention to my strengths and what I actually enjoy doing, such as drawing and working with splashes of bold color.

In my past experiments with rendering to a point of realism, I feel that I lost much of the spirit that comes in the initial stages of a piece.  For me, the spark of inspiration should be left alone while it still lives and breathes, so that’s what I’m trying to focus on moving forward.

I hope you like it.
