Images connect on a different level than the written word. By including illustrations in your book, you have the potential to engage the reader s full brain. But do you speak sketch?

Meet D.J. Billings, a.k.a. Sparky Firepants. Sparky is an illustrator who s worked with big names like Nickelodeon and MTV, and is now creating illustrations for Pamela s book.

Jeff and Pamela get Sparky’s take on collaborative art, illustrating for print and digital, and the practical considerations of using images in an ebook.

Hear in Sparky s own words how his “…very sideways, falling-into-things kind of career” came about.

In this episode, Jeff Goins and Pamela Wilson discuss:

  • Why an illustrator’s understanding of and enthusiasm for your material has a major impact on their work
  • How an author can help keep illustration costs down
  • How Sparky and Pamela have developed the character that will be featured in her book
  • Why the best way to advance your career is to Just Start Doing It
