Elephant and Dachshund Earrings

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

This week I’ve been trying out a few new styles of jewelry for my animal artwork. I love animals and it gives me so much joy to draw animals in all sorts of bright colors & wonderful forms.

Winged Elephants

My favorite thing is to add wings and let them fly.

Recently I came across another style of jewelry to add to my collection – the glass teardrop. I made two prototypes of this new style to see how they look & feel.

I think they turned out really nice. The winged elephants feel light and bright in this new style. And the dachshunds seem to love them, too.

Design Decision:

I’m trying to decided if I should also try color designs with this new earring style or stick to the minimalist black and white ink drawings. What do you think? I’d love to hear your ideas.

Sending wishes for a beautiful day,

~Emily Lupita

I’m experimenting with my different ink drawing / illustration designs and setting them into jewelry bezels. Also beginning to map out matching greeting card designs to create gift sets.

And a few new ink drawings / quotes on deck ready to be colored.

Where You Go I Will Go

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio

The Follow Your Dreams Project is going strong with several new designs coming to life. One of my favorites is this new art print featuring two winged elephants, first in ink then in color, framing the quote, “Where you go I will go. Where you stay I will stay.”

I made this design after finding a second elephant ink drawing in a random folder. For some reason these winged elephants I drew years ago really speak to me now. I wonder how many more are out there hiding in my studio, just waiting to be re-discovered?

I know this is how creativity works sometimes, in large loops, but it still surprises and delights me how (and when) inspiration shows up. The elephants gave me that spark I needed to start creating more freely in this new medium of ink and illustration.

I made a few trees, this being the one I ended up illustrating. The trees led to flowers, which became more & more detailed and eventually resulted in this tulip design, looking very Turkish.

I got excited about the new designs pouring out and ended up re-designing my blog & website with the new images. I’m not exactly sure where all of this creativity will lead, but that’s part of the adventure and right now I’m just enjoying being along for the ride.

On Creativity:

This week I’m wondering about inspiration…how it works, why it works, where does it come from? I’m interested to know how inspiration appears/works in your life. Have you ever created or been inspired by something and then forgotten it, only to have it re-appear at the most opportune time, like my winged elephants? If so, I’d love for you to share in the comments section below.

Follow Your Dreams Project

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here on my studio blog and I have several exciting things to share. Returning readers will notice the new look to the website featuring designs from my newest art project.

The path is still taking shape, but I wanted to share some of my first designs for what I’m calling my “Follow Your Dreams” project. I chose this name because this was the very first design I made. It was inspired by my wonderful niece and her love of archery.

My last big art project, The Artist’s Alphabet book, took me more than a decade to finish. I’m hoping this new project won’t take me soo soo long…but I know it will be an extended journey so I wanted to be sure it is filled with things I love.

That’s why I took some time to really focus on developing my ideas for what I want this new art adventure to look like. Of course, when I think of loveliness…my two mini dogs immediately come to mind and I made a design featuring them next.

 The designs are made from my original ink drawings. This one below of the mountains came together all at once while listening to Deepak Chopra’s meditations. When I felt the peaceful flow of this design I somehow knew I was headed in the right direction.

Reflect. I framed this one and put it on my desk to remind me about my desire to reflect my inner artist as I develop this new project.

I’m excited to start this new journey and grateful to have you as my companion. Starting something new gives me butterflies…

Sending happiness,
