New Drawing – Mama & Baby Portrait


I’m continuing with the feeling and flow of my new style. These are two of my latest drawings – based off one of my favorite pictures of me and my son. 💕 I’m still thinking about color. There are so many options! 🌈

Happy New Year 2014!

Happy New Year from Emily Lupita Studio!

Sending out wishes for a happy and prosperous new year!

I love writing New Year resolutions & this year I decided to create a fun poster to display some of them here in my studio.

2014 6 SQUARE

Sharing here the steps to make one of your own…I’d love to see what you create!

New Year Resolutions Poster Project:

#1: Find a picture or photograph that you love. (I used one of my landscape paintings I made of San Cristobal.)

#2: Divide the picture into 9 squares. Fade out the middle square and four of the corner squares.

#3: Write the year in the middle and your resolutions in the corners. Play around with the fonts & colors.

#4: Put up your inspirational poster somewhere you’ll see it every morning and visualize your dreams coming true!

Happiness,

-Emily Lupita

This Week: Book Pre-Order & Thank You Cards & Alphabet Drawings

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

I’m excited to share that the pre-order listing for The Artist’s Alphabet book is now up in my Etsy Shop. This is cool because if you’d like a copy, you can order it now online and as soon as the books arrive at my studio I’ll ship one out to you. I’ll sign each pre-order copy and will also be happy to dedicate the book to someone special, just let me know who in the “notes to seller” section at checkout.

This is the link:    www.etsy.com/listing/169174662/book-pre-order-the-artists-alphabet-26

The book will also be available on Amazon.com in December, but anything ordered directly from Amazon won’t be signed or dedicated since the books ship out directly from the warehouse and won’t pass through my hands.

I was so happy to receive the special “Thank You!” cards I designed this week. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and find myself picking them up over & over and smiling. Now that the cards are here, I’ve started writing my thank you notes to each of my 75 Kickstarter backers. I’ve enjoyed spending time with each note & thinking about each individual person as I write to thank them. I hope my backers love their cards!

I’ve also been continuing my work on the original alphabet paintings. I’ve finished drawing a few more of the canvases – Friendship and Gratitude.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

-Emily Lupita

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 Amazon.com, 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:

Screenshot from Amazon book description page

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
