The Basquiat exhibition inspired me to look further into the colour schemes of illustration but also to try and not be to realistic with my drawing. It gave me confidence to not be too particular and be more free flowing in my illustrations. Basquati himself looked a lot at his own identity and how others perceived him. He talks some serious issues in an interesting and sometime light hearted way. I admired his use of words within his painting and wanted to look further into doing this in my own illustrations.
