How to Design an Art Book, Ep 8 – Start Painting #2 of 5

Beginning the 2nd of 5 new paintings to be included with the 48 paintings designated for the in-progress creation of an ArtStory book. This episode focuses on the start of the painting “Jukebox Lady”. Featuring the origins and a demonstration of applying the initial underpainting to the 10 x 8 inch oil painting on canvas.

This second of these five new paintings are for use in the Album and Intermission design section pages.

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 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 own the book itself.

A Disclaimer: While the book will be available to the U.S., Canada and several other countries when printed, there may be restrictions of where the book may be distributed to other locales around the world due to postage and shipping issues. This will be addressed in the Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign.
