Sold! A wonderful evening at the Highlandtown Gallery First Friday exhibit. For those in the Baltimore, MD area, I hope that anyone unable to make the opening will make the time to join me for a book signing Saturday Jan 18 and if you haven’t done so already, purchase a copy of this unique ArtStory book, “The Journey to Ukazoo” 1 to 3 p.m. “The Journey to Ukazoo” 1 to 3 p.m. Hosted by gallery owner Felicia Zannino-Baker.
Highlights of the book include 37 short stories matched up to 37 art images plus 74 border artwork strips and other artworks, a total of 153 art images in this 9.5 x 12.5 inch 142 page book.
Video highlighting the making of the book can be found on my website http://www.clhaupt.com under the ‘TJTU book’ tab.
A Monday evening tidbit. “The Journey to Ukazoo” book has now found its home in 19 different States and two Canadian Provinces. As I wind down the mailings and hand deliveries for the Kickstarter portion I have still received additional orders from friends and followers of my art. I thank everyone that helped make publishing this book possible.
From the ‘Snapshots and Memorabilia’ section of ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ book project. The eight images and notations in this section had direct connections to eight of the 37 stories/art in the journey portion. This one had a direct tie to Story number Ten, ‘Spilled Milk’.
Concerning the books progress, the filming for the Kickstarter submission video was done Friday evening. Now all the different shots will need to be edited to fit within 2-minute format.
Border artwork continues to be worked on. Also completed marking out a red line route on a pen & ink U.S. map. This mapped out journey page is to be inserted on the page opposite the contents page of the book.
Finished the Kickstarter ’Profile’ worksheet page.
Over the next 12 Mondays (excluding the Holiday season) I will post a diary of the trails, & tribulations of my efforts to publish a Book, culminating with a 30 day Kickstarter Funding Campaign in March 2019. These Monday postings will also be formatted to highlight the different sections of the books content/layout.
I am asking for help, if you are interested, in Sharing these posts to expand this projects social media presence and with that enhance my chances of achieving the funding goals for publishing the book.
If you are able to Share these Monday posts on a continuous basis I will include your name in the Social Media Acknowledgement section of ’The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book.
A note: the crowdfunding part gives everyone a chance to acquire different items of my artwork as well as the book for your donations. It’s not monetary donations for nothing in return.
