That depends on who the drawer is.

Do you think that all drawing is stylised?

That depends on who the drawer is.

So by that you mean it's possible to draw without style?

No I mean it is possible to draw life, which doesn't really have a style.

Relative to my own sense of style in drawing, I can see that some drawings in this series are more stylised than others. I made conscious decisions to keep free of nuances and affectations and feel I managed this in some of the drawings. It's part of what defines the work - for me at least.

Though I'm not entirely sure from your answers - I think we probably have differing ideas on style, and possibly what style is.

Yes, some drawings look like they have been more consciously done. I think every series will show this to some degree, and things like that often stand out specifically in series too. An aim often originates from self critique, and it can function as a guide. By focusing on something arbitrary one can divide their concentration to the effect of achieving a less stylized look. 'Nuances and affectations' cannot be the part that defines the work when you bring them to your attention.
