It's interesting for me to see how your style and aesthetic has changed from the older work you have here. Was this a conscious or natural change and how would you advise other artists who are trying to find their own style?
When I first started painting it was at a time when I was reading a lot of comics and graphic novels, so I think that really influenced my work. Artists such as Phil Noto were and still are total inspirations, but I think I also had to work past feeling as though my chosen medium was supposed to dictate the way my work should look.
I get asked these kind of questions a lot, so I think it’s pretty common for new artists to impose a pressure upon themselves to find their own style. For me, I only started to figure it out when I finally stopped thinking about aesthetics and begun to focus purely on just creating. Through constant creation, I found that my work began to reflect my personal taste, and as my taste evolves, so does my work. In the end, I’d say that the best way to find your style is to not think about it too much. Instead, just focus on creating work that you enjoy making (and a lot of it). Eventually, it’ll just be one of those things that figures itself out.
