This illlustration style is more like the style that I use when I paint murals, but I am developing it further for book illustration.
There is more detail and the backgrounds are painted too, unlike my other two illustration styles on simple coloured paper or plain white backgrounds. I enjoy the fact that I can depict things like textile patterns and textures this way.
I try to capture humour, energy and quirkiness. Hopefully there is still poignancy and sweetness, but lots more detail to look at.
I use mostly acrylics and emulsion paint on textured or smooth acrylics paper. Sometimes Photoshop can be really helpful in achieving a certain look or atmosphere too.
