Smile Advice on finding my style?

Hello, this is my first post! (wasn't sure where to post as i'm new..)

I'm graphic designer & part time artist, hoping to make the transition to full!

I'm 20, pretty young and fairly lucky as have fair bit of time to experiment artistically, which is what I have a few questions about..

At the moment, I have 2 styles, my 'normal' art: painting, drawing, digital painting (inspired by hockney, matisse) mainly of nature and landscapes which generally people seem to like.


However also have a more graphic 'cartoon' style, inspired by street art, (haring, kenny scharf) (which my younger friends prefer)
People often say it's different interesting, but somehow, I don't see it as proper art..

Anyway, I enjoy both but not sure which path or style to pursue!
I've attached some examples below for you to check out, but would
really appreciate any opinions!

Thanks! Luke

just keep drawing it will develop when you quit worrying about it, when everything starts to click that's your style. I never would have thought I would work in ink when I started but its my favorite medium now. experiment try everything one day it will click.

Looks like a pretty good style to me. I think your confusing art style with artistic style. You got to remember, artistic style is not abstract, realism, conceptual, fantasy or any of the other dozens of art styles out there. Artistic Style is how you create and draw those types of art styles. You have a very detailed and graphic, style and it resonates thru every square inch of your pieces. Regardless of which art style you appear to be working on. Just keep it up and you will find your path.
