My wife and I always read a scripture story to our kids before bed; but the illustrations in those storybooks are really boring sometimes, so I had the idea a few nights ago to do something quasi-brilliant: I decided to sketch the story as I told it to my kids. Later, when I had some downtime, I painted the sketches. Here are a couple of illustrations from that. I think I'll continue this. It's good practice, and my kids love it!
