It’s that time of year again, to create art and support charity! We’ve finished our cards for Twitter Art Exhibit! What is Twitter Art Exhibit you ask? It is an organization/event founded by David Sandum where artists both amateur and professional from all over the world can submit a post card sized artwork that will be sold at the event to raise money for charity!

Each “chapter” of this poetry novel is its’ own poem, with themes of romance, adventure/action, abstract, and even a little crude humor. Although I’m only putting this story out now, I actually wrote it way back in 2014, as a poetic derivative of one of my many novels-in-progress. All of my watercolor artwork for this book was digitally placed and enhanced by Avery.
Please enjoy, as it is one of my more interesting pieces!

Arianna: We’re excited to present you with a brand new collection of dark and spooky poetry, just in time for Halloween!
This is the second book I have put together doing all of the art digitally. I like the atmosphere I was able to create to accompany the poems that Kai and I wrote. I hope you enjoy this eerie collection of poetry!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
Kai: Here is the third, and last installment of our “Rainbow” poetry book series: Another collection of poems by both Arianna and I, plus colorful images of our own creations, and pictures we collaborated on.
“We yearn to reach into the mind and soul to open you up to the colorful world around us. To complete our ”Rainbow series”, we introduce to you, our third collection of detailed musings in the form of hand-drawn art, and contemplative poetry. May color open up your eyes, taking your focus away from the continuous battle of black-and-white, right and wrongs. We are here to be creative beings!”
“Color’s Second Wind” is a sequel to “Thinking in Rainbows.” Poetry and art is by both myself and Arianna. It is a mash-up of poems done with purpose, and inspired by whacky dreams. The Artwork is of course, some of our most colorful! Please Enjoy! -Kai

Here is a new poetry collection from Arianna and I. It contains poems and art from the both of us, including art works we collaborated on. This first “Rainbow” titled poetry collection is the first installment of a colorful series, so if you like the art from this book, there is more to come! I have so far compiled three books for this series, but for now, enjoy “Thinking In Rainbows”.
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.
Please take a look!
