My journey as an indie author has gone much further than just publishing books and doing signing events! In 2020, I ventured outside of the book sphere for the first time when I collaborated with Old Soul Artisan to create a candle inspired by my Chronicles of Avilésor: War of the Realms series. The Avilésor candle is now part of Old Soul Artisan’s Dark Lit Collection.
Later that year, I created my first Teespring store and launched the Project Alpha Collection and the Kit Collection. This was my first time venturing into any kind of clothing design, and I enjoyed bringing the novels to life in a new way.
Now, I’m thrilled to unveil the next two designs in the collection! The Alpha deluxe hoodie was an experiment with adding a sleeve design, and I love the final look! While the clean-cut Alpha symbol in the original Project Alpha Collection is what would have been on the fugitives’ uniforms in the books, this updated deluxe version is splattered to imitate the look of the font used on the covers. The sleeves read: PROJECT ALPHA.
Axel is one of my favorite characters, and so I couldn’t resist bringing out his dark side! Red eyes and a wide smile with eight sharp fangs peer through a bloody handprint for a creepy vibe that’s very different from anything else in my apparel designs.
Art is just as big a part of my life as writing, and I’ve had so much fun designing my own apparel, graphics, and book covers. More ideas are forming in the back of my mind… so stay tuned for a possible Phase 3 later this year!
