So You Want To Make A Picture Book

Author R.R. Vincench (Bobby) takes everything you can go research on your own, and puts it together in an easy-to-understand process that’s actually been used to successfully create several children’s picture books from start to finish. This process could be used for colorings books and other “short” visual-heavy books as well. And if you have any questions after you complete the course, you can watch it again (and pause and start as needed) or reach out to us and we’ll see what we can do to clarify something for you. This is OUR SPECIAL PROCESS for doing it. There are other ways. But this is ours, followed by book creator and author R.R. Vincench to make all his own books.
