Black Petals Artists donate their work to enhance the writer's work
and we appreciate their efforts. Here are their bios:
Darren Blanch, Aussie creator of visions which tell you
a tale long after first glimpses have teased your peepers. With early influence from America's
Norman Rockwell to show life as life, Blanch has branched out mere art form to impact multi-dimensions
of color and connotation. People as people, emotions speaking their greater glory.
Visual illusions expanding the ways and means of any story.
arts mastery provides what Darren wishes a reader or viewer to take away in how their own
minds are moved. His evocative stylistics are an ongoing process which sync intrinsically
to the expression of the nearby written or implied word he has been called upon to

If Charles Addams,
Edgar Allan Poe, and Willy Wonka sired a bastard child it would be the fat asthmatic
by the name of Michael D. Davis. He
has been called warped by dear friends and a freak by passing strangers. Michael
started drawing cartoons when he was ten, and his skill has improved with his humor, which
isn’t saying much. He is for the most part self-taught, only ever crediting the help
of one great high school art teacher. His art has been shown at his local library for multiple
years only during October due to its macabre nature. If you want to see more of Michael’s
strange, odd, weird, cartoons you can follow him on Instagram at mad_hatters_mania.
