  • Elements Of Creating An Adult Coloring Book

    Here’s what I’ve learned from self publishing via Amazon’s Createspace: Once you’ve got your paper orientation worked out, I recommend using a vector based program (if you’ll be making your designs in the computer).  If you like to ink by hand, great, but you’re going to need some image-editing software to erase artifacts and be sure…
