To try an illustration of your own, begin by picking a subject you know well, such as a gardening technique. Then, follow these simple steps:
1. Write out the steps in detail to explain it to a beginner.
2. Add drawings to your explanation.
Even you will see how much easier it is to explain something with the addition of illustrations.
Now, pick a subject that you don't know much about, or an aspect of a subject you'd like to know more about. Do your research and write out your notes, but also add sketches, using the simple steps above, to help you learn the new material and really retain it.
How-to's become simple to follow with the addition of illustrations.
