Most artist seek to be original. Yet look at others for inspiration.
In order to be a standout artist you don't need to look outward at what others are doing. Look inward.
Your true style lies within. It's there with your soul. Look at things from a distance and look at stuff from different angles. Maybe clouds or splash paint down. What do you see?
Those things you see are often your own style looking at you. That is unless you're seeing Mickey Mouse or spongebob. Or maybe you are seeing different versions of them
If you're ever feeling empty and don't know how to begin. Just stop thinking about it and dive right in.
For me i never looked for my style. It just came to me. And now each day I challenge myself to create something new and different then what I've done before
That challenge is where new beginning lay and also grabs a bit from the past.
