Format

I’m not sure how to proceed with the format for the book, and I may be over-thinking it. I have always wanted to bring it to photoshop as a vector file so I can really adjust and get clean graphics, clean lines. I know I said I might just do away with good production and just get it out even if it’s a bit sketchy. I mean, Curious George started that way. It’s still a great read even when I watch the show with my toddler now.

I don’t know how to go about converting my hand sketch to a vector file. I thought of outsourcing the sketch to someone to do the conversion, but I worry it might be costly. I have to explore that option. Maybe I will run into someone later, when I have more illustrations ready for that part of the project. One idea I’ve been playing in my head is that I know I can also trace my handsketch by a software called Autocad-which is really an architectural program used to draw up plans. I used it everyday. It’s not a straight up graphic software, but it does make great vector drawings. I’m not sure how long that takes for me to draw a page of, since I haven’t tried it in that application and I’m not sure how efficient it would be. Test page maybe?

Here’s a sample of some drawings done with the program. These are all straight lines and text, and I’m not sure how the software would handle lots of curves and splines…
