Designing an Artbook, Ep. 13

With a New Year and a new upgraded computer, it was time to make adjustments to the Video Episodes.

This episode features the first two paintings of the 48 primary paintings included in the in-progress design of my second ArtStroy book. The goal is to play catch-up as to align the Video Episodes postings of the 48 paintings to match my social media platform (FaceBook, Blog, etc.) postings. Also included in this Episode is a ’fictitious Letter’. Since I have posted 12 episodes I have received few comments and no questions about the designing an Artbook content. Because my previous ArtStory book and recent online art projects have included various levels of audience participation I would like the videos to have that element of involvement also. With no audience questions to date, I decided to create my own questions in the form of a ’fictitious Letter’. The introduction of the ‘fictitious Letter’ aspect will also give me a chance to integrate my artistic history/autobiography into the episodes.

The video ArtStory book episodes continue to feature guest musicians that have contributed music tracks for the episode ending credits

This Episodes guests musicians are:
