For me, the last couple of years have been a bit up and down as I've struggled to settle on a style that I love and that also gets me some work. It's a tricky dance and one I'm not comfortable with. I've tried to force myself into a box of drawing in one particular way. Every. Single. Time. In truth, I like to bounce around a bit when it comes to my art style, so over the last few months, I've been less strident, more relaxed, and more willing to experiment.
It's been fun and I've been happy.
This pig is part of a farm illustration I'm working on for my portfolio, an attempt at a simpler style. Illustrating in a simple style like this is far trickier than it looks. There's a lot more time spent taking away than adding, that's for sure. I'll post more snippets and the final illustration once it's all finished up!
