Week 3 of Kickstarter: Poster Design & Definition Pages

BLACK ALPHABET POSTER FINAL 2

This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

Week 3 of my month-long Kickstarter project has started and a huge thank you goes out to the 11 wonderful people who backed my project in the second week.  I now have 47% of the pledges needed to make the book a reality. But I still need to raise more than half of my funding goal in the next two weeks, so the butterflies in my stomach are growing.

I had a beautiful moment this week when I finally finished the alphabet poster, something I’ve been slowly working toward for years. Each letter represents an original watercolor painting & design process that was a labor of love. The day I finished it also happened to be my 36th birthday, so I felt like this was a good sign I’m on the right path.

The definition pages are slowly emerging – I’m all the way to “hope.” I’m writing my own definitions for each word based on the traditional Oxford Dictionary, but modified with my own feelings & experience with the word. Two of my favorite definition pages so far are Dreamer & Friendship.

Thanks for all your encouragement!

New Art Book Project Accepted By Kickstarter!

PostCard 2

New Art Book Project Accepted by Kickstarter:

I’m excited to share with you that my new art book project, The Artist’s Alphabet, has just been approved for a Kickstarter crowdsourcing campaign! A special Kickstarter website will run until October 31, 2013 at 11:59pm Eastern.

The official launch is October 1st, but I wanted to give the wonderful people who read my blog access to the project site early, so I linked it to this post. Just click here or on the invitation photo above to check it out.  (The site is now live & running, and I’m able to accept backer pledges as of today.)

Pledges start at $10 and I’m offering some great rewards for supporters of my project.  These rewards include “Kickstarter Only” packages on copies of the The Artist’s Alphabet e-book & soft cover book, plus, I’m offering big reductions on my original watercolor paintings as a special thank you to backers who’d like to collect a piece of original artwork.

Everyone who supports my project will also receive one of my artwork greeting cards in the mail with a handwritten thank you note inside and will be listed on a special page on my website and/or in the printed book itself to thank you for your generosity.

I’m hoping to raise $3500 to help fund the first edition printing of my alphabet book. To explain a bit about Kickstarter, it’s set up as an “all or nothing” platform, so if I meet my funding goal before the October 31 deadline, I get to put all the money I raise toward my art project (minus about 10% in Kickstarter/Amazon fees). If I fall short of the $3500 mark, I won’t get anything.

Thanks for your support & for helping me spread the word about this exciting project!

This Week: All the Way to “Wonder”


WEB BOOK W is for Wonder

This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

This week at Emily Lupita Studio I’m finishing up my designs for my new book, The Artist’s Alphabet. I’ve made it all the way to “W” is for Wonder.

This book has been almost a decade in the making & it truly is wonderful to see all the paintings merging with the letter designs. The whole thing is really coming together…I’m excited!

Wishing you every happiness,
