From Teagn’s Books
Yesterday was Jazz Wednesdays on Teagan’s Books.
Check out Hullaba Lulu and enjoy this short excerpt
from the 1929 danced song, ‘Singin’ in the Bathtub,
performed by Scrappy Landers, written by Michael H.
I’m still dealing with problems keeping me away from my blog.
To my amazing followers, please accept my apologies.
In the meantime:

Singin’ in the Bathtub 1929 by Michael H. Cleary
Teagan and I are hard at work on this week’s Jazz Wednesdays which means
I have to take a short break from Art by Rob Goldstein to make illustrations.
Several of Teagan’s readers have asked how I make the illustrations for Hullaba Lulu, so here’s a quick explanation: to make these illustrations I use two gaming computers and a virtual reality platform.
Each virtual photo shoot takes about six hours and I usually have to do two shoots to get the images I want.
I use four to six avatars per shoot.
Each avatar must be dressed, posed, and positioned, and getting this right
takes total concentration.
The sets I use must be built or purchased, and modified and sometimes
I take at least five to six gigabytes of high-resolution bitmap files per shoot.
Post-processing also takes concentration because the avatars are usually
distorted in subtle ways, so in that sense I use Photoshop to redraw the scene.
This short video is composed of extra shots from the last six shoots for Hullaba Lulu.
I have to go see a man about a dog.
