A book launch party will be held at 5:30pm on Tuesday, October 21, at the L&N Train Depot (10th and Commerce Streets). Original illustrations from the book will be available for purchase, and artists and authors will be on hand to sign copies of ‘C’ is for Clarksville on the Cumberland. The Clarksville Arts and Heritage Council sponsored this project.
There are over 30 illustrations done by area Artists. I'm proud to say I have an illustration in the Book, I had F for Forts. The illustrations are created in many media including watercolors, acrylics, drawings, photography, fabric art, tile mosaics, metal sculptures and wood carvings. The illustrations are beautifully done and enhance the well written text.. I'm from Clarksville and I learned facts about Clarksville I never knew.
I did my homework and visited Ft. Defiance in New Providence to help with my image. The photo here is of my thumbnails I drew to help me come up with my final idea. I had pages and pages of thumbnails.
I hope to see all my friends and met some new ones tomorrow night at 5:30pm
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
