"At the age of six, I saw the painting "Hay Wain" by John Constable and was mesmerized. I recall sitting for hours and staring at the painting while tears rolled down my face. I thought, "This is so beautiful." It was in that instant that I knew I wanted to be an artist"
We interview Lupe for The Art of Sherlock Holmes project and she talks about her influences and inspirations:
Lupe's piece for the Art of Sherlock Holmes is based on the story 'The Adventure of The Long-Lost Enemy' by Marcia Wilson. Marcia Wilson is a research writer and freelance illustrator whose style has been described as 'spookily like Gorey'. She currently lives in the Pacific North Wet and has been writing for MX since You Buy Bones was published in 2015. The Anthology challenges keep her on her toes between pursuing her degree and holding down two jobs. Her blog is https://graspthenettlehard.wordpress.com/ and artwork and photography are on www.deviantart.com/gravelgirty/gallery/. Consider her always game for a challenge in the Canonical Sherlock Holmes world.
