My First Attempt at Illustration

If you haven’t met me before, I write picture books. I don’t illustrate.

I like drawing but haven’t really had the opportunity or the time to do more. After going to a few classes on illustrating during the CYA Conference last week, I thought I’d move my rusty old hand and try a little sketch.  I tried illustrating one of my picture books.


Going colour was a whole new ball game and I was worried I’d stuff it up but Karen from Sugar Bird Art uses colour pencils in her stunning pictures so I really wanted to give it a try.

His name is Cornelius and he’s a little scared of heights. Do you like him? How do you think I did?
