So, after a metric ton of questions about it, i will assemble some PERSONAL OPINIONS
On the nature of style, its ups and downs... stuff like that
This is based on my own personal experiences, mistakes, dead ends and fuckups.
So take anything i say here with a few grains of salt.
In fact , reason i'm writing this is that i have started getting an unsettling amount of notes flat out idolizing the imperfect unfinished mess that is my style, so before it harms people's growth i wanted to share some personal insights i learned over time. Some through experience, other through conversation with industry professionals.
Style.. the way i would define it is, artistic handwriting.
It is a coveted answer to a visual problem, often imitated but unless build from scratch, rarely comprehended.
If we use the handwriting metaphor, style becomes a natural extension of cutting corners, and working fast.
