So Inspiring!!!

Thank you, Shadra for inspiring me with your down to earth style of teaching. You are very practical in sharing the way you have experienced illustrating what works for you.
I know now what to expect in the time it takes to illustrate a book, how to get it more interesting, how to tailor it for the age and audience, and how to get it published!
I will submit my drawings as I complete them throughout the year!
The discussion board really helped me learn as I read other students ...
