But going to an art school, i can tell that your work is very
original. I can play fur elise on the piano, and so can my friend.
But if blindfolded, a music teacher could definately tell the
difference in style. You may have borrowed motifs that have been
used before, but i have also used every word in this post. Words,
clothes, pizza or motifs, everything on it's own has probably been
done before, it's in the way multiple things are assembled that make
them original. Your designs are not what make you a good artist.
It's your style that keeps people coming back.

On the flip side, yes you do do traditional designs. And the only
alternative is to be a little unorthodox (i hope i used that in the
righ context). But seeing as you've stuck with traditional designs,
i'd assume that that's your style, a highly developed one in the
least. I hope that you stay true to yourself and i also hope that
you don't feel that anyone elses opinion really matters (to a certain
extent), whatever feel comfy to you is all that matters.
