Pain and Process
By Don Dixon

This art book is a collection of works that are a reflection of what I see in this world, it is the mirror I hold up to the world as a Black man living in America. I hope this book inspires conversations and many interpretations. I truly believe that art can change the world, can open eyes, and can open the door to something new and greater then we ever could have imagined.

The Applause and Appreciation for the Awesome Goodness of God
By Regina Davis Scott

This book is not written just for the appreciation of adults. It is a description of life’s experiences and things that we have been exposed to. It is written for the Glorification of our God and how His hand has intervened in our lives to change us, to bring us to the point where we are today which is a different place, a better place. Our destiny has only been changed because of our exposure to His Word; His Grace and His Mercy. It is my testimony. It is a snapshot of my life as a witness for Jesus Christ. There are times when I listened to the Holy Spirit and obeyed and then there were times when I didn’t listen, and I thought I was all that and a bag of chips and the chips crumbled, crushed. This project is something that God has given to me through a vision.
