The Journey Continues

PictureForWebOfTable2When I first started this journey into writing and illustrating children’s picture books, all I wanted to do was draw. Now I find myself writing all the time. Why the switch? Ideas appear to me around every corner and I feel the need to capture them when I can.
Some text just jumps onto the page while others require excruciating revisions. But it is all worth the effort.
My first attempt illustrating ended with me discarding hours and hours of artwork because the text changed. I learned quickly that simple sketches are the way to go. This also helps me to explore varied ideas.
We all need to find the system that works for us. The key is to stay on task and be productive. If you love the process as much as I do, you will be able to achieve your goal.
