I love when bloggers or magazines illustrate articles with a drawing. I draw myself a little bit but it never occurred to me that I could illustrate my own articles. It was something I thought reserved to the more talented. But then I realised that an illustration doesn’t need to be technically impressive to convey a message. My 13 year old sister Léa drew a comic once for Andrew and it was funny and cute. So I thought, ‘why not’?
I got started with illustrations for old blog posts last week while on holiday in Nice with my family. When Léa saw what I was doing, she demanded something to draw so I delegated some posts for her to illustrate. I think we have a lot of potential to improve. You might see our progress in my future posts!
But for now, I’d like to share what we did already. For those who have been reading my blog for a while, there’s even a little game: you can try and guess the post for which the drawing was made. You’ll see the answer and a brief pitch of the post by highlighting the space underneath the picture. (Léa signed her 2 drawings; I made the others.)
For the newcomers, just click on the picture and it’ll lead you to the connected post.
