Your book illustration doesn't have to be phenomenal or groundbreaking. It just needs to convey a message.
In this video, I show you one method of illustrating your own book. However, I appreciate that while this is very beginner-friendly, the equipment I am using (Ipad + Apple pencil) is not something everybody has lying around!
But don't worry - this is one of a few ways you can illustrate your children's book and you should also know that there are much cheaper options on the market that get the job down.
