I think my book is also harder to sell, not just because it focuses on a single artist, but because my art isn't your typical art that sells well to the mass market. I don't really create art that you would hang on your wall, unless you like looking at evil creatures all day long.
It reminds me of my friend's mom who keeps telling me to let her know if I ever paint something "nice" so she can hang it on her wall (Laughs).
If people are reading this that haven't got your book and are maybe new to your work, how would you describe your style to them?
I've never considered myself to have a recognizable style, even though others say they can easily identify my work. I guess if I had to describe it I would tell them my art is dark and gritty fantasy with a twist of realism. I always try to inject some realism into my paintings, even if I am depicting something fantastical.
With many accomplished artists, it becomes quite easy to pick their work out once they have mastered their style. Do you think this limits the creativity of an artist in the future, when they maybe want to explore other styles of art?
I guess sometimes it can become a detriment. I have seen some artists who have such a unique and specific style that their work ends up looking the same. I've heard stories about some artists who got in trouble with clients because their work looked too similar to work they produced for other clients.
