I was going to say ‘so don’t delay!’ but that makes me sound like a double-glazing advert.

Don’t though.

Hey, you have a really awesome distinctive style. I've always been 'technically' good at drawing and I have a lot of ideas and really like surreal things / combining things, but I don't know how to develop a 'style'. Do you have any tips or is it all down to experimentation and persistence ?

Hey,
Thank you very much, I’m really happy you think so!

I’d say that it is mostly down to just drawing every day; however, it’s important to be experimental and to try different things, such as shading, line thickness etc as well as how abstract/surreal you go.

Try not to be too precious. Once I realised that, I started to do things like carry on with a piece after I classed it as finished or I’d add paint or some other material to it. Scanning in your work and editing it can help you get the aesthetic you want as well as help you discover new possibilities for a piece.

So yeah, basically, never stop drawing and experimenting and never stop getting inspiration from other people’s art. Eventually you just learn what works for you and keep those bits and remove the rest. Once that happens you have your style, I’d say.

Thanks for the message, I hope this helps!
