The Coldcut sample, ‘Honey I got rhythms I haven’t used yet‘ sums up how I feel about illustrating just now. How can you choose one style when there are so many exciting ways to make a picture?

I know a lot of people struggle with defining their illustration style – and having a unique and recognisable style helps you to be competitive in the illustration market.
