Like other new artists, I find inspirations and encouragement from plenty of established artists. To name a few, Katie Rogers, Pinodesk, Inslee Haynes, SunflowerMan, and Tracy Hetzel have been my heroes since I started.

I also see other new artists’ works thru social media and I have to say that plenty of them are copied works from others. Now, here is my problem. How can I stop established artists from making too much influence on my work? Ok that is a stupid question. Let me rephrase that with how can I make sure that my art is not becoming a poor imitation of  somebody else’s? How can I develop my own voice? What do I need to do in order for people to know that an illustration is my work?

So many questions. I guess I just have to focused on getting better at drawing for the meantime. LOL!
