Hi, I'm Alan and I really enjoy writing books and making videos :-)
The first book I wrote was to accompany a video training course I'd made showing how to use your computer to help draw "cartoon portraits".
I sold the course through Canonbury Publishing, a "biz opp" publisher and did very well.
I'm currently working on a follow-up course about "comic book portraits".
Essentially you take a picture you like from an old comic book (I show you where to find tons of comic books in the public domain) and change the face to one your customer wants (they provide a photo)...
More details when that course is finished.
Although I actually prefer writing to drawing, many of my books seem to be picture based - often using a computer.
My children's book, "The Magic Coloring Book", for example uses NASA images as well as drawings from patent applications manipulated digitally as a large part of the story.
Perhaps I'm just sticking with what I know?
I hope to become brave enough to release a text only book one day ;-)
