Been doing a lot of thinking lately as an artist, probably more than I've been drawing. Nothing profound.

I'm just wondering what I can provide as an artist and how much I can push emotion in my art.

How do you guys feel about emotion in illustration? Do you feel your art expresses a lot of emotion or have you been touched by a stellar piece?

Been bothering me quite a bit actually.


@ChrisTalleras Illustration by definition tells (or helps tell) a story. What is the story being told? That’s a question I try to answer even if it’s commissioned work — heck, even if it’s commercial illustration. One of my repeat clients is a law firm, and I not only try to convey the information the piece is supposed to convey, but set a tone. Worried? Funny? I bring some of my skills as an editorial cartoonist along.
