Cartoon of a boy and a librarian. The boy asks, “How can you tell if a picture book is just illustrated or lavishly illustrated?”Most times, when a publisher describes their picture book, they say it’s lavishly illustrated. Does that mean it has real gold leaf and uses the most expensive dyes in the process? It could mean the illustrator used Photoshop Extended instead of the standard version!
I lavishly drew this in Adobe Illustrator with a little Photoshop thrown in.
