A Book in the Making

I am in the proces of writing and illustrating another book which I would like to share with you. Would you like to participate in the same process; to write and illustrate your story? Bring along an idea, some paper and whatever you want to use to draw with and we can work together to create your story.

Step 1
I will talk to you about and show you my process of how writing and illustrating go hand in hand.
Step 2
We will talk about your idea and make sure it has a good story arc. You may have to go away and work on this but it is a start. Don’t think you need to have a complete story idea when we meet.
Step 3
After presenting your idea we will talk about how to marry your story with your illustration or visa versa. I will set you a task to achieve this.
Step 4
What type of illustration are you thinking of, what medium are you going to use for your illustrations and what is the layout of your book going to look like? All these points are important to consider in relation to your story and your target market.
Step 5
Ooooh, you are on your own to work on your illustration and storyline. I am there if you need me to help you but I know that you can do it! I would love to see you again to find out how you are progressing. Remember that your story is just that. It is the story you want to tell!
