Designing an Artbook, Ep 12

How to Design an Artbook, Episode 12

A belated Happy New Year!

With Episode 12 filmed and edited during the last week of 2020, all that remained was exporting the video for a YouTube format. Alas, computer issues in the form of an older computer that didn’t have the ‘memory’ capacity to complete the exporting portion of the video. Thus began a 6 week adventure of how to address the ’GPU memory’ problem.

A new computer of specific Processor and Graphic Card specifications was the end result but even obtaining that was not an easy road given the demand for computers and computer parts during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the filming was completed I decided to keep the initial video intact but with a newly inserted prologue introduction of the belated Happy New Year video. With the Holiday greeting, this Episode highlights the completion of the first two ‘in-progress’ paintings discussed over the past few episodes with a view of both from start to finish.

Overall view of the “24 Album Cover” book Episode series project is Highlighting the artistic design, writing stories, creating art images, computer applications including InDesign & Photoshop, layout for conversion to PDF, and a crowdfunding campaign to convert the self-published ArtStory project to printed form.

The ArtStory book will feature 48 full color images, 77 supporting images (of which include these 5), and 24 short story/vignettes within a 9.5 x 9.5, 100 plus page self-published book.

The future Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign to fund the digital scanning and printing costs will afford the viewing audience the opportunity to have their name included within the text of the 24 short story/vignettes and in the Acknowledgement section of the ArtStory book as well as being able to own the book itself.
