Book 'Drawing live music' by Santiago Ríos

My goal is to publish a 150-page high-quality book, size 22x22cm, which will show a selection of the best drawings I have made while attending live musical concerts, which include classical music, flamenco, jazz or ethnic music. The book will contain as well reproductions of several of my paintings

Me and my goal

My name is Santiago Ríos and I am a retired mining engineer, father of 4 daughters and grandfather of 11 children.

With this publication I intend to show some of the drawings I make while I attend musical concerts. I have been making these drawings for 20 years as they allow me to combine two of my passions: music and drawing.

Which drawings will it include?

I would show a selection of my best drawings and paintings on classical music, flamenco, jazz or ethnic music.

Many of my paintings (some 150 of them) have been published in a leading local news paper, Heraldo de Aragón, flanking the many of their musical reviews.

I normally make my drawings on the concert program, but I also use notebooks and other materials. Occasionally I scan my drawings and work on them in my computer so that I can then print them on canvas or high quality paper and color them using acrylic, ink, oil or watercolors. I may also use them as sketches to support and inspire other paintings.

What will the book be like?

The book will be 150 pages size 22x22cm. Full color, 125-gram matte coated paper will be used. It will have a hard cover with paperback binding and it will include short texts written by artists and art critics.

Make it happen!

The most important part of this Project is you. This book will only be published if we reach the funding goal with your contributions. This is the only source of funding

How to do it?: On the right side of this page you will find a series of "packages", each with its price and rewards. Choose the one you like most and decide what your potential contribution will be (in euros). This amount will only be charged in case the funding goal is reached. Your contributions will be made through a credit card (*remember that your contributions will be made effective only if the project is completed successfully*).

What will I use your contributions for?

  • To cover the costs of publishing the book and of the rewards

  • To pay for paperwork and fees associated to obtaining an ISBN for bookshops, to register intellectual property, a trademark, a barcode and pay for postal fees.

  • To pay for taxes and advertising costs

Calendar

Once the funding goal is reached, I reckon it will take about two months to complete the layout design, an additional month for printing and, finally, just the time it takes me to pack and send all your orders.

    Estaría encantado de presentar algo sobre mis dibujos en conciertos.

    Por el momento ando con bastantes compromisos porque además canto, con mi mujer, en dos corales y hay conciertos importantes en ciernes.

    Trataré de llamarle más adelante

#06 / Listo para imprimir

Hoy he acabado de corregir el borrador del libro, El documento está listo para limprimir. He tenido que corregir las listas de mecenas varias veces pues algunos nombres han ido llegando o se han cambiando por los aportantes. Espero no haberme olvidado de ninguno y de que todos estén recogidos bien.
Me dejaba en el tintero esta imagen

que me gusta mucho que ha sustituido a otra para no pasarme de páginas. Al final, el libro va a tener 180 páginas de 150 g en lugar de las 150 páginas de 120 g que estaban programadas.

#04 / Ya tengo los CD "live in Zaragoza"

Ya me llegaron los discos de Georgina Sánchez "live in Zaragoza" que irán como recompensa, junto con mi libro, a los que lo solicitaron.

Este magnífico CD, que fué ganador del premio de música independiente 2016 en la modalidad de clásica, se puede escuchar a partir del siguiente enlace: "live in Zaragoza"

#03 / Sigo avanzando

Queridos mecenas
Sigo avanzando en el diseño y enmaquetación del libro. Una labor ardua la de seleccionar imágenes. Me cuesta desprenderme de algunas.
Me estoy planteando el ampliar el número de páginas puesto que he tenido un superavit sobre el objetivo de financiación. El sobrecoste de la ampliación de páginas lo tendría en cuenta. para que la donación a la ONG no sufriera menoscabo. Me han llegado casi todos los textos que esperaba. Ahora me toca encargar su traducción al inglés.

#02 / En el Pirineo, en el valle de Tena

Como estos días de Semana Santa no se trabaja en la enmaquetación del libro, me he subido con mi mujer y otros familiares a Panticosa. La montaña está preciosa.
No descuido el tema del libro. De hecho me han llegado dos contribuciones de texto de amigos del colegio de bachillerato y del Colegio Mayor Cisneros.

Os presento una acuarela que hice ayer con luces de atardecer.

#01 / Muy agradecido

Queridos mecenas míos:

He acabado con superavit mi campaña de micromedenazgo para editar el libro de "Mis dibujos en conciertos (Drawing Live Music)": 7063 € recaudados de 5600 € solicitados. Os agradezco en el alma vuestra aportación que me permite iniciar los trabajos para la edición del libro.

Estimo en unos dos meses el diseño y la enmaquetación del libro. Otro mes más para la impresión... y finalmente el tiempo de empaquetar y enviar todos vuestros pedidos.

Quiero deciros que el superavit del coste de edición y del envío de las recompensas, lo pienso donar al Proyecto Hombre - Centro de Solidaridad de Zaragoza.

Abrazos fuertes
