I think there can be a tendency to over-conceptualize in illustration… or perhaps it’s just fashionable at the moment. Never underestimate the value of (and NEED for) simple, effective drawings. In every Concepts class I’ve taught, I’ve tried to instill the idea that sometimes a beautiful drawing is enough. Just as “surface” style can become dated, so can “conceptual” style. - Jillian Tamaki
