"Your style is your innate, organic ability to turn any drawing into an illustration uniquely your own. Artists often discover their styles by simply paying attention to their basic likes, including favorite aesthetics, colors, and textures... Take as much or as little artistic license as you like. Think about the details, flourishes, shapes, and signatures you'd like to be recognized by." ~Stephanie Corfee

Challenge yourself to think outside the box with color—paper doesn't have to be white, and outlines don't have to be black. Colors that speak to you can become part of your artistic signature!
How can you style a simple drawing so that it feels like yours?
If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Vincent Van Gogh
