About This Class

In this class, i will show you my method for creating a coloring book from start to finish. From brainstorming ideas & inspiration in the planning stage, to making clean illustrations that have the right technical specs, to laying out your coloring pages appropriately for a variety of uses...then straight on through to print and publishing steps. I even include a walk-thru of Amazon's online self-publishing platform, called CreateSpace.

As with most creative pursuits, there are MANY ways to do things. MY way is not the ONLY way, of course! But this is the method i've been using for years as i've created coloring pages for my etsy shop, and for clients to use in their businesses. It is the method i've used for both my self-published books on Amazon's CreateSpace and for my books done for traditional publishing companies. So i just want to share it with all of you and hope you can take away a few helpful tidbits and have fun along the way.

Great class. I am familiar with the publishing end but I always enjoy learning the creative process from others. I will share my project once I get it sketched out. Thank you so much!
