Description

The single most common question I am asked as an illustrator is, "how do I find my style?" It's definitely not something that comes easy, but I lend 12 ways to help you get there, if you're able!

Finding our own unique, creative voice in any field or discipline does not come without an incredible amount of patience, work, and dedication. But, if you have a unique voice to share and enjoy, then the work put in will surely pay off! It did for me, and I hope the 12 points I make in the video and in the classroom will help you, too! Cheers!
