Three artists explore the power of the image. Malika - Warrior Queen, Part One: An African Historical Fantasy Graphic Novel by Roye Okupe is a fantasy epic set in fifteenth-century West Africa that details the battles of queen and military commander Malika, who struggles to keep peace in her ever-growing empire. In Sketchbook Dares: 24 Ways to Draw Out Your Inner Artist, Laura Lee Gulledge forces readers to confront the blank page, erase their inner critic, and explore their instinctual creativity with a sketchbook full of 24 unique and inspiring challenges. And, The War Bride’s Scrapbook: a Novel in Pictures by Caroline Preston is a bride’s collection of vintage postcards, photographs, and newspaper clippings which narrate a World War II love story.
