After I had created all of my sketches for my book, I then scanned each one into my computer. I saved each image to a new folder as a jpeg. Once I scanned all of my images I then opened my Illustrator program and created a new file. My book format was 7x7 inches, so I opened my new file to 14x7. This allowed me to work on two pages as one. I drew a line down the middle to divide my pages. I then opened the scanned images by clicking on file-place. When all of my sketches were opened I then started to collage them according to the layout of those pages. I used the opacity slider on some of my images. This allowed me to overlap my drawings while being able to see everything at once. I scaled each sketch and moved it into place accordingly until I felt it looked right.
