The brand of an artist, what a shame

A sketch from Friday at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere.
Modogliani painted here.

Here are a few designs from the nude.  I was aiming for graphic images; graphic, not innuendo. 
I'm not sure I give you the picture.

It seems that nowadays artists, like so many other professionals, have to have a brand; be known  for a certain style or image. 

This is sad.  

We have to keep up the same thing for life, like an actor must play the same role for life.  
Seems the hottest market is street art style with spray paint.  I'd love to paint with spray cans but it's really not my thing and the market is overwhelmed with this too.  

It's a crisis.  

 Good technique whichever style will always be sought.
