I learned so much more about illustrating a Children's Book.

I know now that I don't have to do it if I do not want to illustrate my next Children's Book. Journey to KidsLit can help me with this. I taught myself to draw years ago before I wrote my first Children's Book. Now, I have four books and two more coming out. Thanks, Journey to KidsLit. I learn something new every time I take a course.
