Remaining Marketable

This isn’t easy to admit.  My work is well, sort of old-fashioned.  At least, it’s not HOT.  Not a big deal, I can change, except I really don’t want to.  Let me back up a bit.  What I love to do, is not as marketable as it could be, and I am really not at all good at what seems to be winning the children’s illustration awards in 2011. The style is spacial, heavily designed, and far less realistic than mine.  Some of it is stunning.  I simply gape.  Some of it in my humble opinion, is boring.  The work that I’m not crazy about is lacking the charm, emotion, and magic that I look for in a children’s book or app or magazine.

I enjoy working digitally. Photoshop has become a great friend.  And, I’m open to working in any kind of medium, so no problem there.  I do not want to be left behind, and I want to grow while remaining true to what I love. So, I’ll be posting some new work with a more inclusive age range, a little distortion, a different color palette, and a lot more space.  I’ll also be experimenting with texture and line drawings.

I’ve no idea what will evolve.  Please let me know what you think, especially if  you are a young person (five to about forty:>).  Seriously, all of your comments are always helpful and appreciated.
