This Week: Book Cover & First Alphabet Painting

This Week at Emily Lupita Studio:

This is the first week after the Kickstarter for my book project ended and it has been a wonderful, busy time. I’ve spent many hours designing and finalizing the final cover layout.

Final Book Cover Layout

The book is being distributed by, so I also needed to write the book description and author bio to go on Amazon’s webpage once the book is ready. It will look something like this:

I’m learning about distribution channels, copyright, royalty tiers, accounting and many other new things associated with having a small business & becoming my own publisher. It’s a ton of new information (some of it rather challenging for me to fully understand)…but I actually really love it so far.

“I is for Imagination” by Emily Lupita (ink drawing)

I finished drawing the first of my custom alphabet original paintings for my Kickstarter art collectors this week as well. I’ll start adding the watercolor soon & am excited to see “I is for Imagination” spring to life.

It is amazing for me to see this project come full circle…from creating the paintings over the last ten years to dreaming up the alphabet designs to laying out the text & graphic designs in the book and now this morning hand drawing the book designs here on watercolor paper.

When I reflect back on the journey I am filled with gratitude.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

-Emily Lupita
