Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book

Welcome to ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book project.

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.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 30

Singer on a Stick

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 30-Holiday Intermission

 

It is my intent, with the Holidays and illness behind me, that next week I will post the “in-progress” center section with “Jack”. Until then I offer this last “Holiday Intermission”.

This weeks’ posted image, is another very simple drawing. In 2005, after a several year pause, I found a number of ‘doodles’ in my sketch books that renewed my interest and during a flurry of activity, from 2005 to 2008, some of these completed images were extremely simple in line and color. This renewed interest didn’t end with 2008, but I then settled in and resolved that I would no longer allow any extended pauses to interrupt my inherent need to continue creating art.

 

Entitled “Singer on a Stick”, this 8” x 10”, Color Pencil and Watercolor on paper, was finished July, 2006.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Monday, January 12; “Holiday Intermission”.

Monday, January 19: “Jack” Center of Painting Progress Post.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 22

Curved Arms

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 22-Intermission

 

The new computer has had a few issues and they chose to occur on last weeks day of Posting. While not an unsurmountable problem, I was cut off from the internet last Monday and Tuesday till it was finally resolved.

 

As I work with detail in the third corner area of the painting “The House That Jack Built” I am posting a past Art image as an “Intermission”.

 

For this intermission, the above Color Pencil/Watercolor drawing is entitled “Curved Arms”. Still unframed and resting in the portfolio, this very simple line drawing was completed in July, 2006.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Monday, November 24; “Intermission”.

Monday, December 1 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.
