Oduduwa by Ayo Adelagun

Artist commentary: “Oduduwa,was the 1st Ooni, King of Ile-Ife with the titles “Olofin”. His name, phonetically written by Yoruba language-speakers as Odùduwà and sometimes contracted as Ooduwa, Odudua or Oòdua, is generally ascribed to the ancestral dynasties of Yorubaland because he is held by the Yoruba to have been the ancestor of their numerous crowned kings. Following his posthumous deification, he was admitted to the Yoruba pantheon as an aspect of a primordial divinity of the same name.”

The Folio of Friendly and Furious Fey: Part One

Creatures from the Feywild, a parallel plane to the prime
In this vibrant world these fey have a habit for speaking in rhyme

There are countless creatures who lie beyond the veil of trees
The sprites, sylphs, nymphs, or dryads being only a few of these

Their deities, associated with either the Seelie or Unseelie courts
Wielding the power of nature these creatures offer cunning retorts

While some fey are kind, often showing benevolence
There are often dark, murderous things that don’t see the relevance

Devouring travelers, kidnapping children, bringing misfortune for all
Redcaps, Quicklings and Gremlins will gut you for just being too tall…

I can’t promise you the whole world. I can’t give you the stars and the whole galaxy. I can’t promise you the sky. I can’t promise you that it will be easy. But i promise you that we will make it through. I promise that i will be there when you wake up every morning and be with you to face each day. I promise you that i will always hold your hand and i will never let you go. I promise to lend my two ears when you need to talk, my shoulder that you can lean on. I promise to always care for you and protect you from everything. I promise that i’ll always hug you to make you feel the warmth of my love for you and kiss your tears away. I promise that i will never hurt you and break you into pieces. I promise that i will never leave you and i will never give up on you. I promise that i will always be true to you and be honest to you at all times. I promise that i will respect you and support you in every decision you make. Baby, i promise that i will always love you and you will always have me, you will always have my heart. This i promise you, baby.
