Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book

‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book Project:

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.

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.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Finished Painting

♪Now all them’s colors have been finalized

The background and them figures with little eyes

Embellishments such as tv’s, bowls and such

Some’s important, some’s don’t matter much ♪

 

♪There’s a lesson contained in this painting

My words I sing, not to keep you waiting

Check that stamped date before you buy

The odor emitted might just make you cry♪

 

♫Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫

 

The final painting of the 12 + 12 Project

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Worksheet

♪ Oh this worksheet I manage to construct,

Arranging shapes with thought and luck

Connecting everything to a can of soup

As awful odors knock you for a loop ♪

 

♪ Even after the paintings first stokes are started

Questions of placement and a few items departed

With an eraser several selections require a tweak

Those final results I will show you next week ♪

 

♫ Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫
