My old style just doesn't relate to me anymore, and over the years when work has been scarce I have done a lot of chopping and changing to suit what the job/art director required. Kind of ironic that so many young illustrators are now imitating the work of well established 80's artists (ha ha, not that I could ever have been called "established" -even at my busiest I flew by the seat of my pants!). The irony being that they produce this "hommage" work on a Mac while many of those original illustrators kind of fell by the wayside due to their failure to adapt to the sea-change of the computer graphics age! A lesson for us all really, there is no point digging your heels in?
While I am trying to evolve this new style I have decided to work on a few subjects that just relate to my little interior world rather than the usual topics you see in spec portfolios. That way I hope to draw more freely rather than what I imagine those who commission illustrators right now want to see... that will come later. I don't want to chop and change anymore, I do that enough in my heavily fashion influenced design work already.
Anyway, channeling Rolf Harris for a moment... can you tell what it is yet?
