For this month, Arianna and I got to work on a new children’s book, “A Truly Wonderful Christmas”, is a sweet, and warm story-book style tale for kids. It turned out to be a cool little book, so I hope you’ll be happy to read it as well!
I wrote and hand-drew the characters, while Arianna added the color and depth to the illustrations. Avery (as usual), did the great digital touch-ups.
I’m also proud to announce that this is the thirtieth publication on our site! I can’t believe how much we’ve accomplished over the years, and I am so grateful to my siblings for pitching in their own art, writings, work, and time, to make all of these stories come to life, and to make them available to share! I still have many books, novels, and poetry collections in progress, so you can still expect more next year!
Please take a look at our other content as well, you can find more children’s titles, poetry pieces, short stories, and full-length novels in my gallery – HERE.
In Abstract Dimensions is another poetry collection I put together, full of both rhymed, and free-verse poems of no particular theme. This collection spans from poetry I wrote years ago, to poetry I created this year. Inspiration came from experiences, dreams, and brain-stormed ideas. Although I did not put any of my art in this one (except for the cover) this book ended up being over 40 pages of poetry!
The backgrounds are my hand at digital art, so I hope you’ll enjoy them!
For this month’s book,I decided to post my second full-length novel. Child and the Sungods is an Alice-in-Wonderlandish adventure fiction about a scientist and his little brother who get lost in another world. They battle zombies, meet talking animals, pirates, and look for the legendary king whose all-powerful “Wings of Ra” have been stolen from him. Meanwhile, a boy called Chike, seeks to restore the “living library” that holds all of humanities’ knowledge.
Both nonsensical, and thought-provoking, Child and the Sungods was inspired by characters and concepts from dreams, music, and various inspirations. I did no research for this story, so don’t expect any of it to make sense! It is very fantastical.
It belongs to my novel “universe” (Which I have not decided a name for quite yet), so you can expect to see familiar faces within my novels, though each story is very different from one another.
I am quite proud of this fantasy, even if it makes no sense to you, but it is still a great read if you like a good, twisted-fate tale.
Here is another new poetry collection by Arianna and I. I regret not having pictures to fill this book, but I wanted to get this particular poetry theme out as soon as possible, so I had to forgo them. The theme is children; both children, and the inner-child. I wanted to put forth this poetry collection as quickly as the idea came to me, because I feel that right now, we need to be inspired by children – ours, our inner-child, and children of humanity. We owe so much to the ones that we have dismantled the futures of. These poems are not coming from individuals who have kids themselves, but from a place of knowing, and remembering how it felt to be a child in a world that was taking a steep turn right before our eyes – and still is. We were all once children, and I think deep down we all know what we wanted to be as we grew older – good people. This is something we can still put into practice for the sake of those who have not even lived life yet.
So please, be good to the world that your children are going to be living in.
