In between making presents and general living-ness, I’m thinking about offering to illustrate a book for a friend. This is new to me, but everyone tells me that my style is great for illustrating kid’s books. Right now I’m thinking that I’ll be using pens and scanning them into the computer and then going over and adding color digitally with my Wacom tablet.
From what I’ve read a lot of people use watercolors, but that’s one medium I have no experience in (unless you count the $2 walmart packs) so, I think for now I’ll be better off with something…dryer. I’ve also been tossing around the idea of using markers (like this) or colored pencils. I’ll be spending the next few days researching it some more, but I’m open to advice. 🙂
