A good thing about having a recognizable style is that clients who need that particular style will seek you out. Unfortunately, I’ve never really settled on a single style, probably because I’d get bored being a one-trick pony. The upside is that my clients enjoy that I can be a Swiss Army Knife they can rely on to do more than one thing for them. One licensing agent described it to me as “dial-a-style” – yeah, whatever. Just sign the check when I’m done with the work.
The accompanying parrot design was something I was asked to illustrate based on some existing illustrative style that a client provided to me as reference.
