Sean's Sketchbook records Sean Diaz's experiences throughout the events of Life is Strange 2. Sean draws sketches and makes comments based on recent events and his surroundings, some of which change depending on choices. At certain points in the game, Sean can optionally sit and draw sketches of his surroundings, which he adds to his sketchbook upon completion. Sean's sketchbook is primarily filled with sketches instead of text, as opposed to the journal/letters in Life is Strange and Before the Storm. The sketches in Sean's journal are drawn by artist Alyzian.
Entry #1 Edit
I hope you'll work wonders with this new sketchbook. I'm sure you will. That is, if you're not too lazy to get to it.
I remember your very first drawing was of me. NOW can you BEAT my skillful portrait of you?
OK, RIGHT... I'll leave the art to you and go back to my engines.
16 for 2016!

Entry #21 Edit
Feeling safe for the first time since Seattle thanks to BRODY.
Also: we picked an odd mushroom on our way out. Probably a bad idea but...
Whatever makes Daniel smile again.

Had to call Lyla one last time... I missed her laughing. Hope she won't get in trouble
If Sean didn't call Lyla
Didn't call Lyla, too dangerous... Might get her in trouble.
Now phone went out for a midnight swim.
Safer that way.
Off the radar.

Crazy how much good stuff they throw away...
Sean stole in "Roads"
Managed to steal canned food from a couple stores.

Determinant Drawings Edit
Episode One Edit
- In Entry #14, the amount of money Sean writes down depends on how much he received from Esteban and whether he stole or put money back into the kitchen jar.
- In Entry #19, the text will vary depending on how Sean got supplies (paying > stealing > begging). Additionally, what Sean writes alongside his drawing of Doris Stamper depends on whether or not he provided a decent excuse for being at the gas station.
- In Entry #21, either a drawing of a tombstone or the text "Night Bay" next to a lighthouse will appear depending on Arcadia Bay's fate, which was either chosen by the player or randomized at the start of the game.
- In Entry #22, Sean's drawing concerning Lyla Park will change depending on whether he decided to call her.
Episode Two Edit
- In Entry #27, [tbc] the Raccoon jumper is drawn if Sean stole from Hank in episode 1.
- In Entry #32, the text will vary whether Sean stole from Hank in episode 1.
- In Entry #39, the page will change on whether Daniel uses his power to cheat in the dice game.
- In Entry #42, the text will vary on whether Daniel used his powers to recover Mushroom.
- In Entry #48, the drawing will feature the characters in the room at the time Sean sketches.
- In Entry #50, Chris will ask Sean to add something to his sketch.
- In Entry #51, the text reflects the major choice on how Daniel should handle Chris, and a mini-sketch of Sean's superhero persona.
Sean keeps a list of bookmarked pages that can be accessed from the left-hand sliding menu. This list consists of pages that depict or concern key characters he has met along his journey, as well as his optional drawings.
- Dad (Entry #1)
- Jenn (Entry #4)
- Lyla (Entry #10)
- Brody (Entry #21)
- Claire and Stephen (Entry #46)
- Chris (Entry #49)
- My room (Entry #12)
- River spot (Entry #15)
- Motel break (Entry #22)
- The cabin (Entry #41)
- Grandparents' house (Entry #48)
- Christmas market (Entry #50)
- At the time of the game's release, the bookmark menu was toggleable and hidden by default. With the release of the second episode, the bookmark menu is now always present on the side of the screen and cannot be toggled off.
