Hello! Thank you very much, I’m glad to know people respond well to my work :)
In terms of color, I love keeping a minimal palette, 4-5 colors at the most. I also like to reuse the colors in multiple areas so nothing really stands out too much and distracts you from anything else.
In terms of texture, I like to go and buy various papers and doctor them by hand. Then I usually scan them and toy around with the opacity levels etc to create the desired texture or effect that I want.
Hope these tips help you out and thank you for reaching out to me.

I’m having one of those days where I can’t draw anything so I watched like 15 episodes of adventure time and drew from them.
