Concept vs. Style: Which is Most Important?

Over the past decade, I have tried very intentionally to develop a distinct illustration style. While the question of whether to have a “set” illustration style vs. being more flexible is somewhat of a controversy, and while I believe there is room here for some middle ground, knowing the boundaries of what you do and don’t do is absolutely essential if you’re going to survive as a commercial artist.
