Thinking like an illustrator can assist you as an author to polish your work—even if you “can’t draw”.
Your manuscript is only in the early stage of a picture book, thinking like an illustrator can make it more dynamic. In this workshop you will learn how to manipulate the all-important word count, outline scenes of your story, breathe life into your pacing, and define the significant emotional moments.
Through example and a bit of ‘hands-on’ we will discover how our stories benefit from various types of storyboarding and the creation of book dummies.
