From the ‘Snapshots and Memorabilia’ section of ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ book project. The eight images and notations in this section had direct connections to eight of the 37 stories/art in the journey portion. This one had a direct tie to Story number Ten, ‘Spilled Milk’.
Concerning the books progress, the filming for the Kickstarter submission video was done Friday evening. Now all the different shots will need to be edited to fit within 2-minute format.
Border artwork continues to be worked on. Also completed marking out a red line route on a pen & ink U.S. map. This mapped out journey page is to be inserted on the page opposite the contents page of the book.
Finished the Kickstarter ’Profile’ worksheet page.
Following the ‘Journey’s’ 37 text and image portion of the ‘to be published’ book, the next section featured is titled ‘Snapshots and Memorabilia’. Highlighting letters, pictures, and items received in the mail from people I met during the Journey to Ukazoo. Eight images and notes were part of this section. Shown here is one of those images.
As for the present Journey to Ukazoo Book project, The filming for the Kickstarter submission video was delayed as I needed to rework the storyboard to keep the descriptive discussion within a 2 minute format.
Border artwork is now being transferred to Bristol paper, inked in, and watercolors added. I want at least 8 of the 74 border images ready for the video.

Continuing to highlight the ‘Journey’ text & art in the Body portion of the Book, all the stops along my trek across the country and back again route were in the U.S except one. With my previous stop, Dec.16/22, 2013, being in upstate New York, I choose to venture into Canada. With passbook in hand, Stop #30 of the 37 stories/image took me to Saguenay, Quebec during the Christmas holidays. Considering the season and the image, the story became a tongue and cheek version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
As for the present Journey to Ukazoo Book project, my focus has been on getting the video storyboard worked out for filming my submission video to Kickstarter. At the same time I am combining the 2 minute descriptive dialog of the video with additional text to flesh out the more informative portion of the ‘Kickstarter’ ‘Story’ profile worksheet. Both of these descriptions will be visible on the Kickstarter site once the funding campaign is launched in March.

Continuing to address the three components for creation of this book. After the First, the ’Frontmatter’ which I wrote about in the previous Ukazoo Book Posts, the second component of this book is the ’Body’.
The ‘Body’ is divided into three parts – The Journey, Snapshots & Memorabilia, and the Art Exhibit.
The first part, ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ consists of 37 images matched to 37 one page stories/vignettes.
The 2013 on-line posting goal was to create one story each week corresponding with a selected art image and journey location.
I chose Niagara Falls for the location using this image.
As for the present Art Exhibit Book project, my past holiday weeks have been working on email/mailing lists and designing/ordering a postcard to make friends and family, who are infrequent or have no social media presence, aware of this project. They are being send today.
Also had to break out the carpenter tools to work on a backdrop to the drafting table for staging the video used for the introduction on the ’Kickstarter’ site.
