About the Book
Love. God. Children. Is a collaboration of Poetry and Art between poet John Nicholas and Artist Justin Reddick. After John and Justin carefully selected the poetry, artist Justin Reddick then interpreted each piece through his brushstroke in an uncanny collaboration unlike anything you've seen before! The book's "edgy" layout draws the viewer into another dimension making it virtually impossible to put down. The book consists of three chapters, Love, God, and Children. Within each subject matter is 10 beautifully heartfelt pieces for the viewer and reader to enjoy. This book marks the beginning of the series "Love. God. Children." between the two collaborators.
“For me, the process of making art is all about tapping into that vulnerable place inside and somehow turning that into a narrative; a visual diary of sorts that can help me grow as a person. I often rely solely on my impulses in order to fully engage the process, resulting in a rush of emotional improvisation. My crude application and loose use of materials allows me to stay clear of any sort of restrictive boundaries which in turn helps purify the process. Beyond my personal narratives, I find inspiration from my faith in God, my family and from others who have overcome trials through adversity." - Justin S. Reddick and John Nicholas of Love. God. Children "I was born in St. Augustine, FL. in 1956 raised on the beaches of the gold coast and steeped in the myths of the baby boomer. I'm the father of four magnificent children, Kyle, Ryan, Tyler, and daughter May (yes their names rhyme) children to whom much of my work is dedicated." - John Nicholas
