Hi Everyone, on a lovely Sunday afternoon. My Art Director has asked me to do some images for the card market which are less 'busy' and 'heavy'. I think I know what she means, as the Tiddles ones do have a lot going on - they are supposed to be like that though, as I want children to really have to look at the illustrations, and hopefully get some pleasure from 'discovering' little details..... I now need to change my style, somehow, to get the images more simple. Hmmm, it's harder than it sounds, as I have always sharpened my pencils into little pointy-points and hatched within an inch of my life! Here are some examples which I've done today - any advice anyone has would be welcome - I so want my work to sell, and it would awful if it didn't because it's too fiddly-widdly. (But that's how I work, kinda fiddly!) I have tried to make things a bit more simple, but still my work, if you know what I mean. Oh well, I'm off to get some chocolate then I'll have a bash at some more (if I don't eat too much chocky haha!)
