For my self-directed final project, I wrote and illustrated a children's book. After finishing, I realized that this really is something that I want to pursue. I also realized that planning, writing, editing, thumbnailing, sketching, finalizing, doing the line work, colouring, collaborating with a friend to lay it out, and printing it are all tasks that together generally should be planned over the span of a year and not four months. Nonetheless, It is finished and I bound the cover by hand!
The whole ordeal was stressful at times, but generally it was a huge experience that I will definitely be starting again this winter!
I'm going to fix it up and then start selling it on Amazon, so I'll let you know when it is available.
