Enchanted Watermelon is a coloring book that will benefit the Albuquerque, NM community. A portion of the proceeds from each coloring book will benefit  local nonprofit organizations that help children in situations of domestic violence, poverty, or homelessness. In this way, not only does the coloring book showcase artists, but since children are the target market for the book, it provides a unique, plausible way for children to help children.

We are hoping to expand the range impact of this project in the future, perhaps through a series of community artist workshops. However, right now we are focused on producing the coloring book itself.

We need art submissions for our Loteria Coloring Book.

How to Submit:

  1. Select an image from the list of cards and interpret it with your own style and imagination. Your image will be printed in black and white, so please consider high contrast drawing materials/media.
  2. Develop a fun rhyme or verse to accompany your image. Here are some examples:

EL DIABLITO (The Little Devil): “Pórtate bien cuatito, si no te lleva el coloradito.”   “Be good, or you will meet the little red guy.”

LA PERA (The Pear) “El que espera, desespera.”  “He who waits, despairs.”

  1. Please use our Loteria template to ensure that your ratio is accurate and that you have enough space for the title of your image and a whimsical rhyme or verse!
  2. Upload your 300 dpi image to our submission site
