In 2019 I participated in The Sketchbook Project and created a sketchbook based around the two central characters in my novel, Marked for Life, Azra and Brooke, and some of the themes explored in the novel. Ultimately the content inside of the sketchbook deals with who they are before they ever meet, and by the final page, we can see that the stars have aligned and they have finally crossed paths.
Everything in this sketchbook was created traditionally. The sketchbook is mostly mixed media. Some of the mediums used are: india ink, paint pen, acrylic pen, acrylic paint, ink wash, colored pencils, copper leaf, charcoal, vinyl reflective tape, varnish, hair spray, and of course… a lick of fire.
