There’s a loooooot of talk about style over on twitter today, and I thought it might be helpful to share some examples of work I’ve done that draws from and embraces from my influences, without losing my own personal aesthetic voice. It’s a blast to play around in someone else’s stylistic sandbox when it’s a conscious, thoughtful choice that informs the tone of the work.
You don’t want to just blindly parrot the style of an artist you love and call it a day – study the artists you love, figure out why you love them! Own it. The more aware you are of your influences, the more you can learn, deconstruct, and eventually diverge from them.
