      About Katherine Brannock

      Katherine Brannock is a local artist with extraordinary talent, born and raised in San Diego, California.The illustrations contained within her premiere art book, “SKETCHBOOK VOLUME 1”, (Xupuy Edicionés) were created using a Bic ballpoint pen. She neither expected, nor intended for anyone to ever see these illustrations, they were simply a way for her to process the personal thoughts, her efforts to understand herself, and her aspirations in life. The culmination of this work provided Katherine with an answer- in that there is “no such thing” as a mistake. "Ironically, the illustrations which may have started out as unavoidable failures, managed to transform into the greatest successes - provided that I stay the course and take responsibility for the decisions I had made on paper." says Katherine Brannock. Thanks.

      About Xupuy - the Publisher (pronounced zoo-puey)
      " Xupuy is a colorful hummingbird that lives deep in the Amazon forest. It is extraordinarily beautiful, and fiercely protective of it's own kind. One Xupuy will swoop in to defend a fellow Xupuy's nest, even against much bigger foes. They are extraordinarily loyal to each other. But, they are becoming extinct, due to the encroachment of commercialization, and are now very rare creatures. We named our art book publishing company, XUPUY Editions to pay homage to independent and loyal artists looking to make this world a more beautiful place" — Margarita Ledesma President/Senior Editor. Alberto Ruiz. Creative Director/Production Coordinator Xupuy Ediciones, Publisher
