Intermingled with the 9 oil paintings displayed at Ukazoo Bookstore in 2014 were 23 smaller works called ’Thumbnail Sketches’ and I definitely mean smaller. The drawings themselves are 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches and with mat and frame a robust 5 x 5 inches in size.
In the book they will show four to a page.
To the book project, the video portion is done and has been sent to a friend to compose the background music. Once the music track is laid in, I will then upload it to the Kickstarter worksheets and submit ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ book project for approval to launch the Crowdfunding campaign.
Checked with new postal rates, reviewed updated quotes for digital scanning/layout costs, and received an updated quote from the publisher to finalize what the monetary goal I will be asking for to publish the book.

Continuing with alternating Thumbnail Sketches with selected images to be displayed at “The House That Jack Built” Solo Art Exhibit, this Thumbnail Sketch is called “Crossroads”- Pen & Ink, Watercolor, Color pencil.
For those new to this page, the outlined box surrounding the thumb is 2 1/4” (56mm) square.
This weeks ‘Post’ is appropriate as I ponder how I will sequence the next nine weeks of Monday ‘Posts’ leading up to the September “House That Jack Built” art exhibit/opening reception at Ukazoo Bookstore.
The initial plan is to complete the “Thumbnail Sketch” posts over the next six weeks, (of which there will new ones on display at the upcoming Sept. exhibit). The three weeks (Mondays) preceding the exhibit will then revisit/highlight the “House That Jack Built” painting.
