Well, if you follow me on social media, particularly Instagram and Twitter, than you will already know that I’ve returned to my signature drawing art style. The realistc drawing style experiment was great. I was able to challenge myself to try and do something different and to do it well and I believe I accomplished my goals. But like I mentioned in the original challenge post, I did not know if this challenge would lead to something temporary or permanent.
One thing that a few of my followers mentioned after I made the decision to return to my style and end the challenge was how happy they were to see me return to drawing like me, or as many of them put it, to seeing the “Merced Style” again. They didn’t realize it but this really made me feel great and inspired. And the reason why is that, for so many years, I’ve worked hard to come up with an Artistic voice (my preferred word for style). Reading that some of you refer to my style as a “Merced Style” really brings home how much all that hard work payed off. So again, to all of you who commented, thank you.
The images below were among the first things I drew for my… Uh… Comeback? Any of you who are as old as I am will remember that LL Cool J Song 🙂
Thanks for reading!
