Making a picture book with inDesign

This is for my new website where I'm going to show how to plan write and make picturebooks. I'm making a black and white paper version of my Euclid eBook. This shows how I change my approach to illustrating exactly the same image, that I've already done in colour with copic markers, that I'm now redrawing in black and white. I have to decide how much shading to add without making it look too scribbly or cluttered. I want to keep the images really simple. with award winning illustrator, Shoo Rayner, who has illustrated well over 200 children's books for famous authors and for his own stories.
