How to Illustrate a Children’s Picture Book If You Can’t Draw

Have you thought about writing children’s books, but you don’t know where to start? Or maybe you are trying to figure out a job you can do while homeschooling. These books from award winning children’s author Eve Heidi Bine Stock can help!

“Perfect! I can’t draw and this book is EXACTLY what I was looking for to help me self-publish my book.” – Erica, Amazon.com customer

You’ve written, or want to write, a children’s picture book. It’s a nonfiction or concept book.

You decide to publish it yourself. But there’s a hitch: you don’t have the budget to pay an illustrator for the pictures.

What’s a writer to do if she is not an illustrator herself and doesn’t have the money to hire one?

This book has the answer for you!

You’ll see a wide range of artistic effects that you can apply to a photograph on your computer. This will enable you to transform it into an illustration for your nonfiction or concept book.

Nonfiction and concept books are easier to illustrate than fiction books, so they’re a good place to start if you don’t know how to draw.

Nonfiction books are also easier to sell than fiction. The subject and the cover usually sell themselves.

There are literally millions of photographs available on every conceivable subject. And they can be used as the basis for all your illustrations.

This book provides the names of inexpensive software that offer the artistic effects shown here, how much they cost and where to buy them.

This volume also suggests Websites for acquiring free or inexpensive royalty-free photographs that you can use as the basis for any of your illustrations.

You’ll learn step-by-step how to use PhotoImpact, an easy-to-use and inexpensive image editing program, to edit photographs.

You’ll see a case study on how to apply the Cartoon artistic effect and steps you can take to edit the images with PhotoImpact to turn them into illustrations for a nonfiction or concept book. The editing steps can be applied no matter which artistic effect you apply.

This book provides value not available elsewhere. Buy it, and you’ll be able to create illustrations for your children’s nonfiction or concept book—even if you can’t draw!

Perfect! I can’t draw and this book is EXACTLY what I was looking for to help me self-publish my book.

I had no idea. Very eye opening! I had no idea this process was manageable. Yet, it’s all here, step-by-step. I will definitely try this with a new manuscript. Thanks Eve Heidi Bine-Stock!

Coming from someone who can barely draw stick figures, I must say, this is an amazingly helpful book. I was expecting the book to be above my head in regards to technical terms and techniques…it wasn’t. This book shows you step-by-step how to take a picture and turn it into a kid-friendly illustration. If that wasn’t enough, the added helpful tips and links to other resources, makes this book a must have for my library. All I have to say about this book is …”HONK”.(read the book)
