I, too, first became acquainted with you when I searched online for a thumbnail template! Thank you for you all you share! Any nuggets on getting from Idea to Concept? I love learning about others' lifestyles, rituals, and exercises to coax out their story concepts. Hardest part for me.

Thanks for sharing your quest to publication. I'm looking forward to the next posts. I've been dooddling since I was 6, and I'm trying to find my style to hopefully illustrate my own picture books. You have fun vignettes.

Thank you for this series, Debbie. I will definitely be following it. I especially look forward to seeing your thoughts on how an illustrator develops a style. How do you get good enough at art to qualify yourself to illustrate children's books?

Your teachings are always fun, entertaining and informative! I loved the comics! So funny and so true! Thank you for your InkyGirl wisdom. Would love to see suggestions for how to learn to illustrate (what programs to use) since so many publishers and agents are looking for author/illustrators. Thank you, Debbie! All my best,

Holland :)

This is great. Thank you for your wisdom on children’s books. I am glad I found your newsletter. I will be forever grateful for the picture book thumbnail layout template you developed and made available on the internet. I use it all the time. It’s been so helpful. Thanks again and I look forward to your next newsletter. Keep ‘em coming!
