About this sketchbook.
I got the inspiration for Sebastian’s story in Summer 2016. I immediately wrote down the story and right after I was done with writing, I proceeded to the illustrations that would go along the story. So, these sketches were all made in Summer 2016. Just like the storyline, the ideas for the illustrations would come to me as I sketched. The way I wanted the appearance of the characters to go with their personalities was so clear I didn’t even really stop to think of it at all. I simply put the ideas on the paper the way I received them at the moment. At the end, the finished watercolor illustrations are in most cases exact resemblances of their original sketches and there are only few illustrations that I painted differently from these sketches.
