RE: Your Children’s Book Illustrations…

I hate to admit it…embarassing but true…I’ve worked as an artist for most of my life, and can’t even draw a straight line (well, I DO know how to use a ruler). I loved to draw and paint as a kid, but my Dad’s canned response to me every time I showed him my latest creation should have clued me in…”That’s good, Son, but you can do better!” Perhaps that explains why my folks feared for my future well-being when I announced, fresh out of high-school, that I wanted to pursue art as a career. The look on their faces was worth a thousand words…

They thought I was crazy and needed to get a REAL job…seriously (they said that)!

Thanks Mom and Dad! I appreciate the love and support! I set out to prove my parents wrong and began working as a photographer and later as a graphic artist and book designer for a Christian Publishing Company. With a LOT of persistence and hard work, I achieved the success as an artist I had hoped for…NOT as an illustrator but as a computer-based artist.

While working in the Publishing Industry, one of the trends I noticed was that it seemed EVERYONE had a children’s book they wanted to publish…it was kind of a running joke. I was even approached on numerous occasions to illustrate them and I refused every time. Why? Because (remember) I couldn’t draw to save my life! Over time, I realized that the MAJOR problem in succeeding with children’s books ALWAYS came down to the SAME issue…the illustrations!

 Every single author I met who wanted to publish a
children’s book struggled with illustrations!

It’s like that is YOUR problem too! Sure you could hire an illustrator to create your book’s illustrations for you but you will likely encounter one of two problems…1) Getting quality illustrations are expensive; or 2) Your illustrations will look like crap! The ONLY exception is if you or someone you know can actually draw or paint…and that’s likely NOT the case! What’s even MORE frustrating is that the children’s e-book market is EXPLODING right now…experiencing 475% growth…and it’s not likely to change anytime soon thanks to tablets and smartphones!

So…it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that, if you want to succeed as a children’s book author, you need GREAT illustrations. After all, THAT is how children connect to the story. They may not be able to read but they can look at the illustrations! Even my own sister had many conversations with me about a children’s book she wrote. It’s a wonderful story but HER problem is the same as YOURS…

Is there a way to create quality illustrations without being an artist?

Walking robotI needed to find a solution to this…a solution that ANYONE could use to create their OWN illustrations and have them look amazing. The other day I was thinking about this while emptying some old boxes in my basement when TWO discoveries got me REALLY excited about a possible solution…I found two graphic novels I had “illustrated” years ago using a specific method and found two comic book covers I had designed back when I was experimenting with some new design methods.

That’s when the answer hit me like a TON of bricks…

I actually had known how to create illustrations for children’s books for YEARS and it never even occurred to me. I didn’t realize the knowledge “GOLD” I had until that moment. After a lot of experimenting and testing, I KNEW I was onto a solution that ANYONE could use to create as many illustrations for children’s books as they needed! Imagine this…what if you could:
