Music to My Years: Life and Love Between the Notes

by Artie Kane

From radio to scores of TV and movie soundtracks, Artie Kane’s music has touched and inspired millions of people.

In his newly released memoir, “Music To My Years: Life and Love Between the Notes,” he captures the romantic as well as the unrelenting perfectionism demanded in the entertainment industry. Mr. Kane conducted scores for over 60 motion pictures, wrote music for over 250 television shows (“Wonder Woman,” “Vegas,” “Loveboat,” “Hotel,” “Dynasty,” “Matlock,” “Question of Guilt,” “Man Against the Mob”) and seven motion pictures, such as “Looking for Mr. Goodbar,” “Eyes of Laura Mars,” “Night of the Juggler,” and “Wrong Is Right.”

Artie Kane, with candor and acerbic wit, recounts his quest to find love through eight marriages as he pursued his dreams as a pianist. His memoir is infused with provocative and poignant stories about the celebrities he worked with and gives an insider’s look at Hollywood culture, films, and TV shows of the last five decades. “Music to My Years” captures the romantic as well as the rough-hewn and unrelentingly perfectionist sides of the world of professional entertainment. For the love of music, and in quest of love through eight marriages, Artie reimagines his dreams, and with characteristic candor and acerbic wit, proves that the American landscape thrives as a place for misfits who follow their dreams to success.

“Music to My Years” is also the story of the ever-changing world of professional entertainment, told by an artist whose talents helped to define the transformative era. This memoir will delight and inform lovers of music, fans of Hollywood culture and films, and devotees of TV shows of the last five decades. This story will resonate with anyone who has pursued a dream or struggled to find true love.

Calligraphy for Beginners: Hand Lettering Made Easy Using Faux Calligraphy

by Shelley Hitz

Would you like to learn calligraphy or hand lettering the easy way? Calligraphy is a hobby that can bring you so much joy, but it can also be very frustrating to learn in the beginning.

I know from experience. In the summer of 2016, I decided to learn hand lettering to create coloring pages for my book, Broken Crayons Still Color. I watched every video I could find and tried all the recommended techniques. However, no matter what I did, even with the best of pens, my lettering looked horrible.

Let’s admit it: Learning calligraphy is not as easy as some of the artists online make it look.

And I was frustrated.

I continued my research and discovered faux calligraphy. I decided to use it, along with block lettering, to create my hand-drawn coloring pages.

What is Faux Calligraphy? 
Faux calligraphy is fake calligraphy. In my opinion, it is the easiest way to get started. You can achieve a beautiful outcome almost right away, even with your own handwriting.

In this book, Calligraphy for Beginners, I will walk you through the steps of how to get started as well as the mistakes to avoid.

In calligraphy, your letters will have thick downstrokes and thin upstrokes. With faux calligraphy, you simply add the thickness to your downstrokes after you write the letters. It’s a three-step process you’ll learn in chapter three.

Traditional calligraphy and brush lettering require months of consistent practice to train your hand and develop the muscle memory required to achieve the thick and thin strokes.

Even after years of practice, I continue to improve every day. And, honestly, I notice the difference in my lettering if I don’t practice consistently for several weeks.

Therefore, if you want to achieve a beautiful outcome right away or need to use lettering for a project immediately (like I did), faux calligraphy is a great way to get started.

It’s a fun way to add text to coloring pages and create beautiful artwork, hand-lettered cards, bookmarks, and so much more.

Bonus: As a bonus to this book, you get free access to my faux calligraphy online class ($39 value). To make it as easy as possible for you, I filmed a video demonstrating every letter in the alphabet. Plus, you can download my practice sheets to print off for reference and blank practice sheets for your own lettering.
