About This Class

In this class, I do not intend to show you how to draw, but rather, how to start the process and in what to think. I am very glad to share with you my own process of illustrating stories for children.

What is in your mind when you think of creating illustrations for young children? Do you think as if you were a child, or do you think as the adult you are? Can you visualize what a story is telling you? How do you start? Enroll to this course and I will help you out ;)


Hope you enjoy!

Good clear instruction which helped with final project
Shortest course on Skillshare but to the point no fluff here. It does illustrate the process you need to go through to produce a illustrated book.
