Very interesting " Because it's not there". My wife's foray into publishing as a business has been very interesting. It is business pure and simple. Publishing or being published is about making profit. Publishers are motivated by the same thing other businesses are. I had thought more about self publishing than seeking a publisher. Distribution is a whole other story isn't it. I think for now this is what I will do. I will set a goal to do one illustraited application each day. Primarily for my pleasure and increasing my own understanding. As simple as the drawings are it is a challenge to accurately use anatomy and gesture to covey the techniques. This will allow me to create an archive or collection of work that could be self published or shopped around to publishers. I'd like to thank you all for taking time to share your thoughts. It has benefitted me very much.
