Being an artist of multiple styles can be a lot of fun. It also allows me to work out ideas with, what I consider anyway, to be the right format. Sometimes an idea might look better as an ink. Sometimes it requires a fully illustrated or painted method. Other times, like the piece below, it’s […]
Being an artist, to me anyway, involves taking chances. Though I value consistency, there’s something to be said for experimentation.
