  1. hi,
    i love your work! its beautiful 🙂 and if you don’t mind, could you advise me? i have just starting writing kids stories for a living and i am considering illustrating my own books.. i wanted your advice on whether i should illustrate on paper or use computer graphics. which medium works better with publishing houses. sorry for asking you what might be an obvious/redundant question.
    look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi DJ, thank you for your kind comments.

    I think the medium that you are most comfortable working in is best. There are lots of publishers releasing books illustrated in both traditional and digital mediums these days. Publishers sometimes have preferences for styles, however. I suggest researching the publishers you are interested in approaching and looking at the types of books they publish. They may also mention preferences in their art submission guidelines – check their websites for those. The Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market book is a good resource as well: http://www.cwim.com/

    All the best with your writing and illustrating,
