About This Class


Would you like to know how to digitize your hand drawn design or coloring page?

In this class I’m going to take you step-by-step through the exact process I have used to digitize my hand drawn coloring book designs and publish them online in books, t-shirts, stickers, mugs, and so much more.

The options are really limitless!

However, the first step is knowing how to digitize your design the right way.

I’m excited to take you through the steps of scanning, cleaning up, and vectorizing your design so it’s ready in a format ready for you to publish, sell on products online or share with family and friends.

good basic study class, with lots of direction of what to do next
Easy to understand and right to the point instruction for getting a drawing on paper into a digital format to use for projects using different techniques. I really like the ease with which vectorizing images was explained and demonstrated also using different techniques. Great class!
I'm very new to the world of digitizing and vectors--this was helpful and informative.
