Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book

Continuing to address the three components for creation of this book. After the First, the ’Frontmatter’ which I wrote about in the previous Ukazoo Book Posts, the second component of this book is the ’Body’.

The ‘Body’ is divided into three parts – The Journey, Snapshots & Memorabilia, and the Art Exhibit.

The first part, ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ consists of 37 images matched to 37 one page stories/vignettes.

The 2013 on-line posting goal was to create one story each week corresponding with a selected art image and journey location.

I chose Niagara Falls for the location using this image.

 

As for the present Art Exhibit Book project, my past holiday weeks have been working on email/mailing lists and designing/ordering a postcard to make friends and family, who are infrequent or have no social media presence, aware of this project. They are being send today.

Also had to break out the carpenter tools to work on a backdrop to the drafting table for staging the video used for the introduction on the ’Kickstarter’ site.

 

If you have not done so, please ‘Like’ the Craig L Haupt Art page and by helping with this Ukazoo Book project by ‘Sharing’ these Monday Posts, you will secure a place in the Ukazoo Book acknowledgement section.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #22 of 24, ‘Day in the Park’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #22 of 24

Title-’Day in the Park’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

As the Worksheet developed, I found that I was able to incorporate two additional ’doodle’ selections made by Carole. If you’re following these sequenced posts and refer back to last weeks ’First sequenced Doodle’ post, the primary design is based on doodle #2 and the two additional doodles added are #5 and #4. I was also able, in the top left corner, to find a place for a reduced version of Carole’s original selection, doodle #1.

Next Monday: ‘The Finished Painting’
