How I Wrote (and Illustrated) A Book - House Jungle



Are you liking my video content? I hope so - it’s exciting but very long winded to make, and I’m still not sure if I’m very good at it? I’m one of those people who takes it hard when I’m not immediately good at something, but I’m going for “done, not perfect”! Still, I knew this particular topic was something I’d been wanting to share for a long time, and I also knew that 200 pages of sketchbook work was never going to translate into a blog post, so I’ve been waiting to share in the form of some video content. I’m sure you all know by now that I wrote and illustrated a book, and I wanted to share exactly how I did that. In the past I’ve shared the story of what and why, but I really wanted to show a bit more of the how. I do hope you enjoy this video and find it interesting! Check it out!
