Rule: Draw.

"Just draw. The more you let yourself go and draw unselfconsciously, the more personal and pure your style will be. Your style needs to come from deep inside. No artifice. You can't be thinking about 'your style'—it should be intuitive. If you have to think about your style, you're probably borrowing too much from someone else. That beautiful, original voice of yours comes from your gut. (And never, ever stop doing personal work!)"
