Day 42 of 365

The little dream: To one day illustrate a children’s book.
The big dream: To one day illustrate a children’s book that I wrote!

Seems like a pretty tough gig to get though. I’ve been researching. Sounds tricky.

I need to work on anatomy and faces first, before writing and illustrating my “Children’s Book Council, Book of the Year” (!!) that is, so my little people don’t always look so samey samey.

No time like the present to start practising…

I think the line drawing of the little girls face actually looked better than how it turned out in the end, ooops, should have left that alone!

Iced tea and cake, oh yes please!

  1. I’m doing the same thing right now! I’m illustrating a short children’s fiction I wrote. I’m going to go the CreateSpace (Amazon) route of self-publishing.

    Even if you don’t think you’re ready, do it anyway. I”ve already done one. It was more of a practice run to see how it worked. I didn’t really market it, but it gave me experience. Experience breeds confidence and it felt good to have one under my belt
