Im going to keep this post super short.

The last key to really discovering your create voice is to take whatever you’ve learned, the ‘unbreakable rule’ or ‘standard practice’ of doing whatever your craft may be, and try doing the opposite. Deviate from the path you think your artwork should take and try something else. 

Its a lot like experimentation, but in this stage its a focused, thoughtful departure from the expected rather than a creative free for all. Combine elements from completely separate focuses(like technological/futurist illustration and folk art, wouldn’t that be weird, like circuitry in place of ornate leaves but in a folk art style), Just pick one thing thats always done one way and do it differently.

Hopefully you’ve found this yammering to be somewhat helpful.
