A Peek into my Process: Water Says What?

Untitled design (3)

Here’s a page from a book I’m considering self-publishing. Illustration isn’t my forte, but after a few different tries, I liked how this page came out! I like the boxy style of it, and the motion of the water in the cup. I made this in Paper by 53, which is my preferred method for drawing. (Real paper from trees has no “do over” button. I must have the “do over” button.) I also use a Jot stylus, which I just bought when I lost my old Jot stylus somewhere in the couch. (I don’t have a studio. I draw on the couch…while watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.) I like my stylus fine…there’s probably a better one out there, but this fit my budget and it gets the job done.

I added the text in Canva, which I wholeheartedly recommend. Friends, seriously–they make design so. darn. easy. I’ve learned a lot from the articles on their blog, and their tools and thousands of free images are a resource I just can’t do without.

I’m still looking at different ebook/app creators, but I’m leaning toward Kotobee right now. I’m interested in Demibooks Composer, too, but the user interface isn’t very straightforward. Anyone have an opinion?

Thanks for checking out my page!
