Sunday Journey to Ukazoo Notes:

Well folks, coming down the home stretch for a March Kickstarter Campaign Launch.

First a wonderful Thank you to those Sharing this project.

Completion of the video editing for the Kickstarter Home Page and submission approval will determine the March Launch date.

I will be adding a posting day besides Monday. On Wednesdays I will be posting the first few stories of ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ to let on-line viewers get a glimpse of the Story portion of this project.

On future Sunday evenings there will be a post listing the ‘rewards’ to be offered for donations to help with the publishing of this Ukazoo Book project.

Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book

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.

Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book

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.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #23 of 24, ‘A Bridge in Time’, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #23 of 24

Title-’A Bridge in Time’

Third sequenced post, ‘The Finished Painting’

 

To reference the ‘Doodles’ used, my favorite youngest son’s initial choice was a future city scene. I decided to use another ’Doodle’ he selected as the main subject but I did figure a way of using the ’city’. With his fondest of posting T-Rex/dinosaur memes/videos on FaceBook, I worked in a few dinosaurs, albeit tiny, and thus they and the city spawned the Title.

Next Monday the ‘Doodle’ for the final painting in this project.

 

A Note: The final painting in this project is called ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’ and the descriptive text for the three Monday posts (’Doodle’, Worksheet’, and Painting’) will be done in Song lyric format with verse and chorus.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #23 of 24, ‘A Bridge in Time’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #23 of 24

Title-’A Bridge in Time’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

Using ‘Doodle’ #3 (you can scroll back to the Oct. 8 post to see the ’Doodles’ used for the worksheet) for the main design, I was faced with three downward projections/columns. As the worksheet design developed, each downward column became a wide block that screamed for some type of design to fill it. To the left-added the rectangles, triangles filtered into the right one, and for the center I chose a grouping of random hieroglyphics type shapes.

Now time for transfer to a board and paint.

 

Next Monday the ‘Finished Painting’
