8TH ISLAND ILLUSTRATIONS
Above the Star is the first in the hybrid-novel series called the 8th Island Trilogy. One of the main characters of the book is fourteen-year-old Ella. Ella has an illness preventing her from speaking. Instead of words, Ella uses drawings to communicate. The books will include Ella’s drawings. Here you will find these illustrations, created by author and visual artist, Alexis Marie Chute. The illustrations are painted using India Ink on watercolor paper.
