I've recently enrolled on Korky Paul's children's book illustration course.
He's really good and breaks things down very well. It's been really good and informative and if I follow everything to the letter I should at least have some work presentable to publishers (fingers cross). I feel he's given me good advice towards playing to my strengths.
Although every thing's still a work in progress here's my final roughs for the first 2 DPS, to be finished sometime soon.
The text is from a rhyming story by John Bush who also wrote "The fish who could wish"
Subject wise it's very different from what I'm used to, but it's good fun.
