For Valentine’s Day this year, I present a book of poetry written by Kai and me. The theme being love, it covers not only romantic love, but love in all other forms as well.
I gave it the title “The Unlocking Of The Heart”after the very last poem in the book. That poem was written several years ago, but I feel it’s story and emotion has become more important to me, hence I gave it’s name to the book itself.
I truly hope you enjoy reading these poems, and that they remind and reveal to you the many faces and forms of love. And knowing that in the end, the most important thing we can give this world is the unlocking of our own hearts. For once we can do this, who knows what is possible?
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!
