So I've been thinking a lot about my work and where I want to go with it. And I've noticed something: we really like consistency in art. We really like repetition. *I* like repetition. The most popular artists I have encountered do consistent work. They have a repetitive almost formulaic style (Not saying that formula is necessarily a bad thing) that people latch on to. It's recognizable as "their" work, almost like a signature. Several repeated elements always show up in their work, like the same medium, similar colours, subject matter, stylization of that subject matter etc.

Recently, I've been feeling like I need to "latch on" to a specific niche if I want to get my work out there more. Thing is, there's so much I want to do and try and experiment with. I just can't imagine tying myself down to one style, one medium or one way of working forever.
