Continuing to post updates and general information regarding the current ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Kickstarter book project.
The Kickstarter project runs to April 3 with a variety of ’rewards’ offered for your help in increasing the amount of books I can order from the publisher as well as opportunities to have your name in the book.
The artwork accompanying this post is the second of three 5 x 7 prints offered at one reward level.
This artwork is also included in ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book.
My hope is that, at the very least, you are able to take a few minutes to visit this unique ArtStory project and Share it.

What a week!! ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book is now 100% funded on Kickstarter. But, the set monetary goal was a barebones goal with a small publishing run. Besides increasing the amount of books to be ordered, I would like to add additional design embellishments to the book and any monies invested helps enrich the content of the final product (the book). With 22 days to go, I still need all the help I can receive by ‘Sharing’ to make this Ukazoo book project as successful as possible. A final note: This book will not, I repeat, will not be available on Amazon, in bookstores, or as extra copies stacked in my closet once the Kickstarter project has ended. This is your only chance to own this unique one of a kind book.
The video posted is only 2+ mins long and helps explain a little of what the project is. Visiting the kickstarter site will elaborate more fully on the project and of course an provide the opportunity to purchase the book, etc.

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.
If you have not done so, please ‘Like’ the Craig L Haupt Art page and by helping with this Ukazoo Book project by ‘Sharing’ these Monday Posts, you will secure a place in the Ukazoo Book acknowledgement section.
Well, obviously I am not the woman in this painting, but for the introduction of the next upcoming project, her act of driving is used as a metaphor. The metaphor in this case, a Journey. Starting Monday November 19th I will begin a ‘sort-of’ new project. The ’sort-of ’ part is revisiting my first on-line project ’The Journey to Ukazoo’ posted 2013/2014. The new part is I will post the efforts to compile all the necessary ingredients to put that ‘journey’ into book form.
Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book Four, 2009. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends. This one was selected by Lee. As individuals were chosen to look through the Sketch Books for this project, I asked that they select one to four ‘Doodles’ and in turn I would chose which one or ones I would use. Lee selected four and the one circled with a number One was the one I chose to work with. The more I glanced at Lee’s other chosen ‘Doodles’, it seemed like two others, number Two and number Three, had similar elements/shapes that whispered in soft tones “Please consider me, please consider me”. So I did.
Next Monday’s ‘Worksheet’ post shows the resolution.
The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.
The second Monday-the 12”x 12” pencil worksheet showing the intended painting.
