It's August 1 and the 50 semi-finalists have been announced for The Global Talent Search aaaaaaand I wasn't one. :( Click the link, though, and take a look. There are some great submissions! I'm not terribly disappointed. I knew before I entered that my style was very different from all of the artists already represented by this agency. And, while this was a great assignment to stretch me and try new things, it definitely didn't feel natural. I have a great desire to do more art that is less realistic and more illustrative and I'm going to keep working on it. I'm going to keep working on developing my own style. I'm also going to keep doing work that just flows. Basically, I'm just going to keep at it!
One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one's capacity.
