First Look At 'Gameboardom Fine Art Book' Publisher Spreads

Posted by Bret Rowe (Creator)

Hi There Again,

First, accept my thanks again for backing this project.  Due to your support, we're off to a pretty good start but have a ways to go.  Art + book lovers welcome!  Now, more about this update.

This update includes two JPGs below of the 'Consumedussa' painting's two spreads as they will appear in the book.  The design calls for my written thoughts on the subject painting (greeked for the sample), a clean white-border painting page and two pages with magnified looks at the piece.  Any thoughts/comments on what you see here are welcome, of course.

Being part writer, part artist means that I have to approach my art with a fundamental organized structure.  I create my artwork in 'series'.  I write in 'chapter thoughts'.  Working in 'series' for my art allows me to compartmentalize my thoughts and apply them to a particular platform (in this case board games) that enables proliferation on many subjects -- war/peace, music, the planet, happiness, celebrity/fame, self-preservation etc.  

'Gameboardom' has allowed me to comment on the world and apply my thoughts in  a unique series.  The 'Gameboardom Fine Art Book' project will allow me to compartmentalize and memorialize the twelve main paintings in one great piece.  

Thanks for playing the game with me and becoming a part this project.

Keep Rolling The Dice,

      I love the artwork but cannot read any of the text so am missing a big part of your project.
