Illustrating Children’s Books – Will Jake Free Description
This is a professional level comprehensive children’s book class. Will & Jake have spent their careers learning the craft of visual storytelling and applying it in animation and children’s publishing. They have both illustrated books for major publishers including Scholastic, Random house, Harper Collins, Penguin, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Leap Frog, Harcourt, and Klutz among many others. They’ve been compiling information, principles, lessons, demos, and techniques to teach you everything you need to know to illustrate a children’s book.
This class is broken down into two parts:
- Part 1 – Creating the Artwork (YOU ARE HERE)
- Part 2 – Business and Marketing.
In Part 1 we will give instruction concerning the development of the content of your illustrations. We will not focus on mediums so this is NOT a digital or watercolor class – rather it will teach you the more intellectual decision making behind what you choose to illustrate – it is a class for everyone working in any medium. We will focus on making the art for printed children’s books but will not teach how to make ebooks or story apps.
Part 2 will cover all things related to successfully selling books and managing your business affairs related to children’s books. We will cover the preparations for submitting and marketing your stories and work to publishers. It will be useful for those interested in self publishing but – we will not teach marketing for self publishing.
