Finishing the illustrations for a storybook- my challenge

I wrote a book for Sofia called ‘Sofia gets angry when’ about 18 months ago (this is a great theme for a storybook for a toddler, they think it is hysterical). I started illustrating the book about 12 months ago and I am disappointed to say it is sill lying unfinished.

So, I have given myself a challenge to finish illustrating this book and I have decided the best way of ensuring I get it done is to make a promise to you that I’ll add a new illustration each week whatever happens.

Today I have put photos of the illustrations I have already completed little further down in this blog post.

Next week I will be adding my next completed illustration for the book and inviting you to have a look.

If you would like to join me in this challenge and each week write or illustrating something for a book idea you have let me know by popping by my page and we can help hold each other accountable and inspire each other.


  1. So glad I found you. I'm trying to learn how to paint and your drawings are an inspiration.

    I'll be back.

  2. I think it is so great you are doing this. I have a book written, just can't illustrate it

  3. I'm sure that lots of bloggers will find this so helpful and creative! Thanks for posting!
