I'm a huge fan of vector art and have constantly been told by people that my work would translate well to vector images. I've been meaning to give it a go but it's being able to take the time to learn Illustrator (I use Photoshop) and try and perfect a new technique. There's just one problem I have with vector work and that is that it seems to really be dominating the illustration and design industry at the moment so what would possibly make mine stand out if I went vector?
The fact is, I love the hand drawn look. I love wonky lines and a slightly "imperfect" look as I think it has a charm that vectorisation just can't capture. But then comes the question: Am I shooting myself in the foot by not jumping on the vector bandwagon and sticking with freehand work? This has been a big worry for me over the last few months as vector work is used everywhere. I recently had a meeting with the company Trunki and voiced this concern and was told not to change my artistic style as it worked very well. I was glad they said this as it meant they chose to see me based on my style.
Does anyone else feel the same about their artwork? I feel I'd lose something if I vectorised everything but maybe that's what clients want at the moment; a more uniform look to artwork than wobbly lines.
Any comments on this would be very much appreciated!
