The Mark of Zorro Videobook

Audiobook chapter of the story by Johnston McCulley from 1919 with original illustrations.

A League is Formed

The Mark of Zorro Videobook in English

In this chapter, Zorro surprises the young nobles during their feasting to open their eyes to the injustices going on in California, and to kindle their courage to unite and fight against its corrupt governor and his army of thugs. Throughout the story, McCulley shows how even those who consider themselves privileged, will eventually be affected by the despotic measures of a corrupt system, and therefore it is not only uncompassionate but unwise to look the other way when your neighbor is suffering the oppression of tyranny.

I began each of the 12 illustrations traditionally with pencils and inks on paper, and then used Krita to color digitally.
