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.

Click enroll and let’s get started!
