Chris, color in your painting is vibrant- and I really like the guy- he adds a new dimension to your work.

Lori, by all means I don't want to dissuade you from  working on your book. It's so much fun to create! But from my experience and what I've learned from others it is wise to start with a plan, a goal, and an idea of the person you want to create the book for.  

If you want to create a book for your personal learning adventure, go for it! 

If you are looking for a side hustle (that produces a side hustle income), I do suggest a bit of research first.  And the reason I can say that is because I've created 5 books now, most without a plan. It was fun, but not much happened (money or growth wise).  Let me know if you want more info and I'm happy to share- google hangout, facebook, email, whatever :)

Hi Melissa, I do not have a website yet. I am new at all of this and just getting started. After reading your comment I think I need to take a step back and get myself organized before diving in head first. Thanks for the tips.

Great work Jeremy!  What kind of markers do you use? I like Prisma Color myself.

http://artistshelpingartistsblog.blogspot.com/   Here is an artist blog I thought I would share.  Leslie has a great podcast thats on iTunes.  She's been producing them since 2010, so you have 4 years worth of podcast to choose from.  I've found them to be very informative.

Here ya go Billie!   Here's the 34 Ford that I'm working on.  I'm really pleased how the old guy turned out.

Thank you Lori & Melissa!

Hey all! I've been off the 48days site but I love getting the messages in my email inbox.  Dean, I seriously LOVE your hearts series! Beautiful!

Jeremy- your illustrations are amazing- I love the bump on the head one! I agree with John- don't underestimate yourself! 

Deby- thanks for the sweet encouragement!

Lori- there are a lot of platforms to choose from. I would actually start with goals before I start creating.  Who is your intended/desired audience? Is it going to be an eBook or print? Do you have a formatter to help you?  All important (and not difficult- you can complete this project fairly quickly!) questions.

Do you have a website I can check out?  You and Billie might want to connect. Billie is working on a book and she is a gorgeous photographer. She's using SquareSpace for her website (and to sell the book) I'm super impressed with the layout and ease.

The hearts are absolutely stunning!

I would like to take some of my best photos and make a book along with quotes or bible verses on the side but don't know where to start. Any suggestions.
