Art History Project


















Inspiring Digital Artworks       Try browsing dA. Many of the most popular artworks ever are uploaded in Digital Art gallery. Then have a look at some of the most popular digital works in the last hours and compare them to some other popular deviations from different categories. What do you notice? - What i did a long time ago: there's a difference between them; digital artworks usually have more views, more comments, more faves. And it made me wonder "Why is that?" - Is it because many people are fans of fantasy characters and great landscapes? Is it because they enjoy looking at an enhanced figure or at a reality-defying picture?     
        Of course they do, but that's not the only reason. It's mostly because people appreciate good work and stunning details, which are sometimes harder or impossible to achieve through other arts. It is also because this is the medium that imposes no limits to your power of creation - you ca
Interview with *yangtianli
          Yangtian Li was born in China 23 years ago, but moved to Australia to follow her dream of becoming a professional illustrator and animator for games, magazines and books. She agreed to answer a few questions, so let's sit back and take a few minutes to see what she has to say.


Clown Girl
          
What drawn you towards digital art, paintings in particular? How was your first experience with this kind of art and how long ago was it?
       Like many artists, I have always been interested in drawing since a very young age, it was really just a natural thing. I love animation and I've always been watching lots of animations since i was a child. As I grew, I also found huge interest in comics (manga particularly) and games, and these have always been my inspiration. So my goal was always to become a professional artist i
Thoughts about Photography - part 1In here you will find a few examples of works specific to different types of Photography, followed by various artists' opinion about what they think it's most important regarding their art and how to make it. You will come to see that while on some types of Photography many artists have similar opinions, on others their thoughts differ a lot, so read them all carefully and enjoy the article! - lintu47
Abstract & Surreal

AndyDragonPark says: "Abstract Photography is not something people immediately think about when you tell them you are a photographer. Most people ask " do you do landscapes, action, portraits or weddings". The truth is I do all these things but my favourite is Abstract Photography. Many definitions on abtract art will tell you that an abstract is one without a

Architecture



canismaioris says: "The most important in Architectural Photography for me is:1. Finding the right perspective. You should always look for an interesting foreground, first plan can totally change perception. 
2. It's good to use wide angle, show as much as you can, use a wide angle lens or make panorama, but this trick doesn't work in every case and situation.

Darkroom



pestilence says: "Photography, combined from the Greek words, Φώτο - γράφω, writing with light, as the above sentence suggests the pure essence of photography is light, without light there can be no photography. I have been asked many times what are the details of a good capture, what are the elements that compose a good pictur

Project Educate: An Interview with popoksProject Educate:  An Interview with bebefromtheblock
by lintu47
bebefromtheblock is an inspiring artist living in Germany with one of the most colourful galleries on dA that I’ve ever seen. Her stunning skills and creativity are a source of inspiration to all photographers around. Aside from her well known photos, she also draws, although photography remains her primary way to express her artistic side. I had the luck to be able to interview her last week and below is what I’ve found out.


1) If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why them?
Johann Sebastian Bach & Kurt Cobain (because 2 is better than one), although I think it's not necessary to bring a deceased legendary artist back to the current time, since Clint Eastwood and Anthony Kiedes are still around.

by lintu47
Anne is an inspiring member of our community that makes a difference here every day. Her modesty and dedication towards the community are a source of inspiration for all the people on dA. She was kind enough to find the time to answer the questions for this interview. Enjoy!

1) Tell us a few words about yourself.
I am Anne from Hamburg in Germany and currently Community Volunteer for Text & Typography on dA. That means I set DDs from Traditional Art > Typography and Digital Art > Typography.
When I am not on dA I work as a webdesigner.
As you can guess, I love Typography. But I also love chocolate and spring and gather any random information I can get.

2) How did you found out about dA and why did you join the community?
I found dA because I was looking to Photoshop Brushes :B I hear that is quite a common thing to happen :lol: I used
PE: ^Talty about Artisan CraftsProject Educate: Talty about Artisan Crafts
by lintu47
Talty is an amazingly talented artist who does wonders in turning her imagination into reality with her skilled hands. She’s in Mexico, so any passionate traveller or anyone living there should pay her a visit at some point and then prepare to be amazed. I asked her a few questions about what she’s doing and I  really hope you’ll find her answers both inspiring and helpful. Enjoy!



1) Tell us a few words about yourself and the art you're practicing.
I'm Talty, I live in Mexico and I'm studying university. I love cats, food and miniatures! My work revolves around polymer clay, I mostly do miniature food but I also do jewelry and I'm trying to expand into different figurines.

PE Interview with =agnes-cecileSilvia is, without any doubt, one of the most marking figures of this site. Many thousands love her works and some artists consider her to be the role model of their artistic life. Instead of rambling about how she is a popular figure of this site, i decided to show you what other people think of her.
Green-EyedGhost says: "Her art is inspiring, emotional, brilliant, incredible, indescribable. Her every single work is what actually can be called art. She always inspires me, she is the most amazing artist I've ever seen in my life!"

airheadOMer completes: "...she has a brilliant and copious use of color. All her work is very intricate and lavish while remaining fairly luminous and simple. It has a wonderful flow to it and is, basically, quite beautiful. She has ineffable talent and her work shows that."
With this being said, let's see what agnes-cecile has to say!
You are a very succ
PE Interview with *SoulOfDavid and *mashamaklautDavid is an amazingly talented artist who works wonders using only editing programs... With Photoshop, he portraits some of the most famous celebrities in a way that makes you wonder, are these really paintings, or photographs?

Maria is one of the artists that made themselves noticed on this site through their hard work and incredible attention to details. Her works, both digital and photographic, are of the highest quality. 
These great artists have something in common: they both used to paint traditionally and now they both adopted the digital style. Let's meet them :heart:


You are both successful artists, what do you believe are your most important qualities that made you stand out?
David: I think my style. I'm using Photoshop CS6. It's a new technique, not mentioning my e
PE Interview with =Aida-ArtInna is a young talented artist who paints... digitally! Her personal quote is "Impossible... but doable" and this can also be seen in her works, where she achieves pure awesomeness!


You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
That’s a tough one  Personally I think the most important thing is that you need to love what you’re creating. Always put your heart and soul in your creations and make them for yourself, not for public. 

What do you want to express through your artworks? What inspires you the most?
The answer is really simple – my soul. I always express my vision of beauty through my artworks. Beauty is everywhere and I capture it the way I see it. 

In your opinion, the quality of your art depends more
PE Interview with ~ScorpionEntityIulian is an inspiring photographer that i had the honour of meeting in real life. He's on deviantART for more than 6 years now and i got him to answer us a few questions, so you can meet him too!


You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
I don't consider myself talented, I practice a lot and still try to improve. First of all, I started photography by doing lots and lots of shot, and those got the attention of the public I might say. In time, I've perfected the concepts, editing, composition etc, but the idea still stands.
I try to do something different with all shots, and the photo sessions to be different from one another.

What do you look for in your models? What qualities do you appreciate the most in them?
Expression is the key to success. Also, the eyes. I believe the eyes are the d
PE Interview with =jane-beataI won't even try figure out how to present Jana, because, as her friend, my opinion only may not impress you, so i'm going to present to you what others think of her and her art:
13-realpeople-42-333: "She makes some of the best art pieces I've ever seen. Really inspiring."
Marts-NZ: "Her work is just amazing, i love coming back to see the immense beauty she creates."

InsomniaSquared: "Her art makes me feel like I've been kicked in the face by a unicorn dancing in a meadow of pansies and fairies. What I meant to say is: really excellent art!" (this is the most original comment i've ever read!)
Aside from praising her amazing skills and works, i will add that she's also a wonderful person, kind and involved with the community, always wanting to spread the dA love to everyone she meets.


First, please introduce yourself to those that might not know you yet.
Interview with ~yuriko-shirouMargarita is a mexican artist that has amazing skills and talent towards traditional art! Her works are brilliant and deserve a closer look, it would be a shame not to stop by to see the works she put so much soul into.


First, please introduce yourself to those that might not know you yet.
Hi everyone! It’s a pleasure, my name is Margarita Luna but I prefer to be named Yuriko. I’m 25 years old, I’m mexican and I am an illustrator. I’m working to be an art professor someday and to do art books as well. Painting and illustration are my biggest passions and I wish to dedicate my whole life to them. 

You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
Thanks, I still don’t consider myself successful, so it’s a little difficult to answer but imagining I could be, I c

Interview Puzzle    Hello fellow deviants! It's been a long time and no articles for this wonderful project from my part, so i decided it's time to pop up with something new! My last articles here were in fact interviews and since i'm told you love the artists i interview, i thought: why not bring you more within the same article? But not whole interviews, that wouldn't be original and would be way too long, wouldn't it? Instead i will bring you one artist per question and two of their representative works. Enjoy!

    The-Longfall-of-1979: Tell us, what defines you as a person?


   That is a good question. I don’t believe it is any one skill or trait that defines me — however I’ve made the best effort to listen to my life and see the mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it — no less than in the excitement and gladness. I’ve learned that for an artist, it

WHY YOUR MENTIONS DON'T WORK

Sat Aug 29, 2015, 11:20 AM
                Hello everyone :wave:
            This journal contains very important information for all of us so I ask you to please share it so other people can see it and know this isn't a bug.



            Over the last month I've had trouble in sending mentions and possibly receiving them as well. I've posted two journals, one on August 5th and one on August 25th Me in gifI was tagged by Mrs-Freestar-Bul :aww: Here is the original journal
Rules:
a) Any number of facts is acceptable.
b) Every fact you post about yourself must be accompanied by an appropriate gif.
c) Tag how many people you want.


1) I hate liars. So much.


2) After a bad laryngitis a few years back my singing voice got even worse.

3) I rarely say "I love you", but when i do, i mean it.

4) I feel like a queen every time i receive a package (currently waiting for one from Boohoo).

5) I am terrified of losing my cat.

6) I am very passionate about the things i love.

7) I will get a tattoo soon.
My Daily Deviation Highlights        I was tagged by Astarsia and Minato-Kushina to take part in this wonderful project and i am more than happy to join in. I would like to invite everyone who sees this to also get involved and spread the word about it :heart:
Below i will share the info given by the initiator of this project, Mrs-Durden.
        Welcome to a Community Volunteer project in which we will be highlighting our favourite Daily Deviations featured within the recent weeks! We would like to encourage the community to join in on this project by simply going through the Daily Deviations page and collecting some of their favourite pieces of art within a journal titled "My Daily Deviation Highlights"! We hope this project will help spread awareness and love for Daily Deviations and our fellow deviant artists!

in which I tagged and featured people, but I was surprised and confused when people told me they didn't receive my mentions. WHY, I asked myself. I posted a comment on both the journals in which I copy-pasted all the people I tagged originally, but they didn't get the notification this time either. WHY, I asked myself again.

            Right after this I got around and asked people if they had the same issue; turns out some of them did. It was obvious to me that this must be a bug since I wasn't the only one experiencing it (also proved I didn't do anything wrong or that I wasn't crazy). I sent a report to the Help Desk in which I stated the issues I was experiencing and the next day I received this reply:

            "(...) Is it possible that this user posted their journal then edited it and added in your artwork/name? If so it would explain why you were not notified. Only original posts of mentions send a notification, edits don't."

            Since this wasn't what happened, me being the one who posted those journals and comments, I went ahead and continued the discussion:
            "(...) Someone told me yesterday about a spam limit, eg. if I have in my journal more than 100 deviations/names/icons they will not receive the mention because it's considered spam by the system. Even if that was the case, the first journal and those two comments do no meet this standard; plus, from the latest journal, the DD feature one, few people appear to actually have received the mention while the vast majority didn't. I can't tell you for sure if the artists I featured received the mention or not because I didn't contact them, but given the fact that none of them came to comment on the journal makes me think perhaps they didn't either."

            I said 100 just to make a point, i don't know what the actual limit is.
            Then I received this enlightening reply which can put all our minds to rest:

            "(...) There is indeed a spam filter for mentions that can cut off after a certain point. There is also a velocity filter which can cut you off if you are leaving too many mentions in a certain time period. (...) As an example, it would appear that comments like this one: comments.deviantart.com/4/2825… are using avatars from plz accounts; that particular formation is trying to send 12 mentions at once. Multiplied by however many of those you send back to back all add up."



            So there it is, the answer to our mention/notification problems. It is not a bug, it's just the anti spam system doing its job and now we also know how it works :la:


Conclusions


                 You receive a mention only if you/your work is posted in the original comment/journal, if you're added after an edit, then you won't be notified.

                If you post comments too quickly, the spam limit activates and you will have to wait a while until you will be able to post again.

                The mentions in your comments add up with those in your journals and after reaching a certain limit, the artists/artworks won't receive any notification; hence it can happen that only some people in your comment/journal will be notified while the others won't.



My advice


            If you're doing (long) features on a regular basis and also comment a lot, avoid using many mentions in your comments so you won't reach the anti spam limit. This way you are sure the artists you feature/tag will receive your notifications.


 
            I hope this helped shed some light on what was going on with the notifications. Please spread the word about it and show this journal to others so they won't send a ticket to the help desk anymore on this topic. Let's help the staff a bit by not flooding them with tickets about bugs that are in fact just the anti spam system doing its job.
 
            In the end, I would like to thank the staff member who was  patient and kind and helped me understand what is happening. I'm well aware the staff is under a mountain of pressure trying to reply to us all and solve our problems/tickets, so please be patient with them and show them some love. They always do their best to help and if they don't succeed, it is because it's out of their hands (I'm referring to the site's rules and policies which are not under their control), not because of bad will.

            Have a wonderful day and spread this around! :heart:

My Daily Deviation Highlights

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 25, 2015, 8:25 AM


        I was tagged by Astarsia and Minato-Kushina to take part in this wonderful project and i am more than happy to join in. I would like to invite everyone who sees this to also get involved and spread the word about it :heart:
Below i will share the info given by the initiator of this project, Mrs-Durden.



        Welcome to a Community Volunteer project in which we will be highlighting our favourite Daily Deviations featured within the recent weeks! We would like to encourage the community to join in on this project by simply going through the Daily Deviations page and collecting some of their favourite pieces of art within a journal titled "My Daily Deviation Highlights"! We hope this project will help spread awareness and love for Daily Deviations and our fellow deviant artists!


Use the hashtag #DDHighlights so we can find your journals!


ExhaleI love the marks that a woman’s clothes leave on her body. I love the red indents and the proof of a long day before she even opens her mouth.
Tight socks circumventing ankle bones. A watch cutting a bit too tightly around a pulse. The alluringly simple bra straps; wire pressing up into the impossibly soft undersides of breasts; the cryptic clasp nestled between shoulder blades. The imprint of lace and elastic on the taut tender tendon of the inner thigh. The geography of jeans around the hips and trailing along the legs like railroad tracks. The line on her cheek from when she fell asleep on the bus home.
I love the luxurious sigh when it all puddles to the floor, shedding this artificial skin. Remnants of weariness leave whispers on the body.
And after all she has been through, she still comes to me and allows me to trace these whispers with my fingertips, eyes, lips. She doesn't cover herself and doesn't hide and lets me in.
We leave the lights on.
How to Pocket a Man's HumanityFirst, convince him to adopt
a rescue cat, fat, days away
from slaughter. Find one mis-
sing half his tail. The pair
will purr in tune; this step
is important. Next, rush him,
him and his rescue, to their
home, and then keep them dry
and healthy. Move deliberate-
ly, with articulation. Shape
the sound. Watch cat and man
sup together, sleep together.
Spring happens upon them, as
it does, and the man and his
rescue walk along the bridge-
less route to the forest and
grove without wind. Convince
him to let rescue race aloft,
to the distant hill-top. And
he will, and he does, and he
is gone. The man screams out-
ward into the meadow, scream
after scream weaving through
stalks of wheat, but nothing.
No clicks or mews. A nothing
against the rust of night on
the horizon. Help the man to-
ward his doorstep. Help keep
him apprised of the treeline
and its shadows. Finally, he,
rescue, appears, and the man
grabs your collar and shouts
and walks and runs and stops.
Rescue has brought home life
fle
Disaster films are more honest than you realize.It was a few years ago; I was eating in a Chinese restaurant with my parents. The place was built with a ton on windows going around the perimeter - you could see out three of four walls.
The entrance was set up oddly - the register cut off the corner where the door was to make a triangular lobby of sorts. Behind the register was a large aquarium. The fish could be seen from nearly anywhere in the restaurant; a few large goldfish, what I assume was a grouper of some kind, and even a black  eel, amongst an assortment of smaller fish happily living together in the fake seaweed and castle.
My family and I were sitting towards the back of the place, more or less by ourselves, roughly diagonal from the aquarium. There were some other patrons, but it wasn't a full house; just enough to create a pleasantly subdued background chatter. The TV was on, but I don't remember what channel. I think it was the news, some local channel. I didn’t pay much attention, instead fixating on the wi

with a new year
firework fervour–
untamed and glorious,
pulling the years together
with  a snap of  your fingers.
but some days you are languid,
stretching like the summer dusting
of freckles along your forearms, the
slumberous strands of hair shuttering
your sky-eyes from the morning light.
on these days, I think the earth spins

I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!


Interviewed artist: Aeirmid :iconaeirmid:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.
I'm fairly passionate about everything in my life, from DeviantArt to my friends to my job. I'm hoping to dedicate my life to making life just a little bit better for people who live with mental illness, and founding mental-health is a step in that direction. I really love animals (sometimes more so than people, LOL!) and am passionate about human rights.


:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
I found out through friends; we were all making signature tags, and people were using art from DeviantArt to make their tags. (I know this is very wrong, and I have learned my lesson! This was about 12 years ago that it happened.) I ended up joining because I decided I'd rather make my own art than steal other people's. :)


:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?
I was maybe 3 or 4 years old, and I knew the proper name for every color of crayon in the Crayola box. I've always loved to draw, but I've never been any good at it! I didn't think I could actually be an artist until I discovered photomanipulation.


The Healing Waters by Aeirmid

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
Honestly what inspires me most is looking at my old works and wanting to redo them, LOL! Stock inspires me a lot; I'll see a particular pose or setting and I start to get ideas. My creativity is at its maximum when I am manic (I have bipolar disorder) but that's a bad thing! I try to keep it under wraps. I find that creativity ebbs and flows.


:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
I'd be a doctor, probably a psychiatrist. In "real life," though, I'm not an artist; I am a social scientist with a Ph.D. in public health.


:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
I think I was being a bit emo and listening to too much Evanescence. But, this came around the time when I was having serious thoughts of suicide, and I think it's just about drowning yourself in sorrow. I am sorry it can't be a happier story! It is the most powerful and meaningful one I have, though.


Your Fool by Aeirmid

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
Yes, all the insecurities! I know it's not perfect, and sometimes it's not even good. Basically I post it and hold my breath... I need to learn that it's not about how others feel about it, but rather how I feel about it that's important.


:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
Yes! It is an escape for me, but it's also a way to put my problems in the back of my brain for a little while and then slowly think about answers.


:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
Go to medical school.


Even in Death . . . by Aeirmid

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?
You can do absolutely anything you set out to do! A key step is getting feedback from others in your community. Also, join mental-health to help join the discussion and raise awareness of mental health challenges!

I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!


Interviewed artist: Fameisdead :iconfameisdead:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.
Oh dear, this is going to be a very difficult question to answer. I am still figuring myself out. Trying to define myself is like a person who has awful near sighted vision, trying to define the exact details of something in the distance. Right now, all I know is that, even though some of my poems can be dark. I am pretty happy, compared to a year or so ago. And when I am not, I’ll write or dance. I think people are like jig saw puzzles. All of our pieces are scattered around when we’re born, and we have to find all of them. I have found very little of them at the moment. So, trying to define myself now would be difficult as hell.


:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
I found out about Deviant Art back in 6th grade, I am pretty sure. And I wasn’t really writing back then. And I am not very good at drawing. So, I just sort of browsed through all of the amazing art work, and poetry and fangirled over how amazing and talented everyone was. I only started posting things, in an attempt to sort of get better at drawing. The only reason I started writing poetry, and posting it. Was because I wrote a short little poem one night, when I was feeling sort of down. And, I was like, ‘What the heck, why not post it?’ So I did, and then :iconinvoking: One of my favorite writers on here, commented saying it was pretty alright. And after that, I just started writing and writing.


:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?
Well, I’ve always really, really loved writing and reading. I am a nerd, and I used to have a best friend back in elementary school. He used to tell me about all of these books. We’d always pretend to be the characters from them on the playground during recess. Books are my best friends, and sometimes it is nice to escape everything that is real. I also really think too much, and writing is a very nice outlet for when you’re feeling sad, or happy or anything like that.


A Letter to the Girl who Hates her BodyA letter to the girl who hates her body.
A letter to that girl
Who scrolls through tumblr.
Admiring all of those models.
With thigh gaps that look cute with skirts.
And a waist that you can barely see.
You're beautiful
A letter to the girl
Who looks at models,
For their curves.
The way their hips go outwards
And their size D cup breasts.
You're beautiful.
Please don't look in the mirror,
And hate the girl you see.
That girl is you
And she should be loved unconditionally.
Because you deserve love.
And how much love is not determined on your waist size,
Whether you're chubby or skinny
You're still so very pretty.
You're so perfect.
So for every time you look in that mirror.
And tell yourself you aren't worth it.
That you're arms are too big,
Your hips aren't big enough.
Stop.
Tell yourself.
I am a woman.
A lady.
I am strong.
I have a body like a castle.
A kingdom made just for me.
And I will not destroy that castle,
By trying to starve myself.
By taking brick by brick and dismantling it
Why I DanceI dance as if I am sick,
And the movement is medication.
As if getting up in the morning just to practice is the only motivation
To stay awake.
Because well- worn soft shoes
Feel like home.
The world is cold, and lonely.
But when I dance, there is a fire inside my heart, warm and lively.
I feel like a bird,
Like I am able to fly as high as I want.
Gravity, I taunt
As I laugh in its face.
Because the Earth was never a place
For me.
Because leaping across dance floors,
Allows me to soar
Higher than I could in my dreams.
Hard shoe dances make me feel powerful.
Like a raging storm at sea.
My stamps, and clicks are crashing waves.
But I am also the sea breeze.
Strong and graceful.
When I dance I feel like I am trading
Secrets with the universe.
My head is clear,
And my will power is strong.
I am a force to be feared.
On bad days,
The rhythms of hard shoes sound like a heart- beat.
A life line.
And I’ll dance until my feet bleed
Just to feel something.
Because dancing is the only thing

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
I have writer’s block, all the time. But I always keep a journal and sometimes I’ll think of cool ideas in there. Also, reading is really inspiring. I’ll get lots of ideas after reading for a very long time. Or, listening to music. Like, ‘Twenty One Pilots’ and ‘Sleeping at Last’ are both very, very good to get you thinking. I think I write better when I am sleep deprived. So usually, I always write when I can’t sleep in the middle of the night.


:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
I am not very old yet. Writing isn’t so much a career yet, just a hobby. I really want to be a writer when I am older though. I want to write novels, and poetry and everything in between. Maybe even scripts, I am not sure yet. But, I am not very good at anything else. So if writing doesn’t work out, I am sort of screwed heh heh.


:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
I used to have a whole bunch of poems in my gallery. I deleted all of them and took a few months off from Deviant Art. So, my most meaningful poem is not in my gallery anymore. I forgot what I called it exactly, but it was about Eating Disorders. I posted it in March, or April, I am pretty sure. I might repost it again, because I feel like it needs to be there. But, I was a bullied a lot when I used to go to public school. And at the beginning of 7th grade, everything just kept getting worse and worse at school. I was really depressed and insecure. So, for a while I struggled with an eating disorder. And it was really bad for several months. I am better now. I think that is the most meaningful thing I’ve written, because I know things can get really bad. And I think staying positive about your body is important. No matter what your size is. It is your body, and your appearance isn’t everything there is to you. There is so much more to you than that. I think, between society pressuring everyone and school bullies, and everything in between can make us forget that. I wrote that, because I wanted to possibly help someone who felt the same way as me. You just have to be healthy, that doesn’t mean starving yourself. Just exercise, but not too much, and eat the right things. That is all. And just love yourself, a lot. You’re beautiful, and if anyone says otherwise, screw them. They aren’t worth your time.


Dear Homophobic ParentsDear homophobic parents,
How the fuck do you think it makes me feel
When you walk out of the room crying
Because you can’t stand the thought of something I can’t control.
I’ll tell you that it makes my insides burn.
The living room feels like a closet.
Suffocating, and yet I can breathe fine.
I am choking on the air,
Polluted by your homophobic slurs.
You’re hypocrites.
Making uneducated guesses about things you know nothing about.
Someone ought to teach you to look shit up
Before you go about, shouting your false claims to the world.
My very existence is an error.
Some messed up chemical defect that went wrong,
I don’t belong
Anywhere.
I am the Titanic,
To you I am supposed to be perfect
And unsinkable.
I am supposed to be straight, and happy, and fine.
But I am so very far from fine,
When my lungs are filling up with water,
Your words are an ice berg,
And I am sinking fast.
A Note For When you Can't Sleep at 4 a.m.I am not really good at this thing either.
I don’t know how to grow up.
It is a lot scarier than I thought it would be.
Like I am a sail boat lost at sea,
Going from my homeland, to a new horizon.
I have no direction.
But I’ll promise you, if you promise me.
Stop treating yourself like we already have torn sails,
Cheap wood to drag us to the bottom of the ocean.
Just going through the motions
Of dying.
We have electric souls,
And lightning rods for veins.
Energy crackles through us,
We’re dangerous.
We have the power to do anything.
We’re made of stardust,
Learn to trust
The little kid that day dreamed at one time
And could find hope while cloud gazing.
Find your fire.
And then build yourself a castle of a future
With spindles and spires
And make yourself the ruler.
Write your own favorite story.
Make your life feel like a well - read book,
Dog eared, with coffee ring marks.
Something that causes a spark
In your heart.
And make sure you love the main character.

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
Sometimes, I’ll read other people’s stuff and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, crap. My writing is awful compared to theirs’ I have tons of insecurities. I don’t have a very nice rhyme when I write. I am trying to work on that. I am scared that maybe I won’t be good enough to do writing as an actual career. But oh well, I like writing. And I guess I’ll just be a really broke writer when I get older. And you know, I’ll be cool with that. Better than having a job that I hate.


:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
Yes. Like I said, I was bullied a lot, and the whole eating disorder thing… and that is why I started to write again. Because I didn’t feel comfortable talking to people about it. And it was just sort of resting in the back of my head, and I couldn’t get rid of it. I hadn’t been writing for a while, and I decided to finally start again. And it helped a lot. So now whenever I am upset, I’ll always write. Also, I started posting to Deviant Art to help others somehow. Because, it is nice to know you’re not alone. And I try to make things that people can relate to and sort of find some sort of comfort in. Because I didn’t really have anyone there to help me when I was in a bad place. So, I try to be there for my Deviant Art friends.


:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
Regarding art and things like that. I really, really wanted to be in a band for a while. But, I figured out fairly quickly I am pretty terrible at singing… and like…. Music in general. So, that ended really, really quickly. I do like music though, I just can’t make my own, haha. Also, I like to draw. But I am not very good at it. So, there is that. (Also I wanted to see MCR in concert, BUT NOOOOOO THEY BROKE UP!!!! But, I don’t think that is what you mean by that question)


I Keep Hitting 'Skip' on my Stardust Music PlayerWe’re all dying.
Slowly aging,
Lights and spirits are fading.
I don’t know what happens after death.
We just fall to the ground,
To the Earth from where we originally came from.
In the end our bodies are returned to the energy that created them,
And we drift up into the night sky.
Joining the stars again.
And when we die, does it go with a bang, or without a sound?
Like the forest in the fall,
Everything catches fire.
One big finale before they surrender to sleep.
Oceans of fiery maple, and bright yellows.
I wonder if that is how spirits look when they’re dying.
Vibrant, and bright, everything all at once.
I wonder if the clouds,
Are actually dying, good byes.
Like in the winter when you can see your breath,
Your words frozen in front of you.
The sky is an ocean of conversations and words,
I wonder if angels secretly lay on the clouds,
And listen to the words of unfamiliar people.
Maybe when you die, the sky falls away.
And it is nothing but bright white.
Maybe when y
RepaintRepaint’
I painted my four bedroom walls
In bright colorful hues.
Of pink and pale blues.
The sunlight lit up the room
And eradicated the demons hidden
In the shadows.
And for a while that seemed to work,
I made paint out of everything I loved.
It chased away the deadly lows,
I used words from our conversations
The way your voice sounded like fire crackers.
Exciting and beautiful.
I made paint from the hope
That I’d never have to see night again.
Because I had you.
Because you were fireworks,
And fireworks are colorful and they light up the dark.
They chase away the suffocating loneliness,
Of the night sky.
And replace it with fond memories of The Fourth of July.
But even fireworks turn to smoke,
And begin to blend with the night.
You got lost among the stars,
And I got stuck on the ground far below.
I am starting to run out of conversations
To make paint out of.
There are no more pale yellows made from sweet,
‘Good mornings’
Or,
Bright, vibrant pinks
Made from

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?
I am not really one to give advice because I am still learning as well. But, read whatever you can get your hands on!!! I swear, if you want to be a writer, this is the best practice. Reading improves your writing a lot. Novels, Scripts, poetry, EVERYTHING. But, make sure you like writing. When writing stories, make sure to do story outlines. As, they’re very helpful for writer’s block and they keep you going. Because I always make the mistake of starting a story and never finishing it, because I get to the middle and have no clue what to do after that.
Also, if you’re writing. Write when everything hurts or when you’re so happy you feel like you could fly to the moon and back. Don’t censor your imagination, and just write what you’re feeling. It is a really good outlet. Usually the pieces of writing, come from when you feel awful. And like you want to rip your hair out. Just write, and write and take it out on the paper. Like they say, ‘What is bad for your heart, is good for your art!’ (Although, I hope you’re all happy. And that you don’t feel that way.)


.There is a man that walks around aimlessly.
Haunting the hallways,
He stares with eyes glazed over, emptily.
He has highs as tall as Mount Everest.
I wonder if he dreams of rockets in his sleep
Instead of counting sheep,
Does he dream of traveling to the moon?
He has lows.
Like being trapped inside a glass case
Filled with water.
Let depression suffocate you in its embrace.
Everyone sounds distant, their voices sound like underwater songs.
Screaming out in the dark, ‘Mother, Father’
He was wrong
When he thought he was okay.
And I walk the halls he has walked.
Felt the darkness, I let it hold my hand.
I’ve talked
                   As
                         If
                                I am
                     
A Letter to My Best FriendA letter to my best friend, for when he is feeling badly
When your sunny skies turn to thunder clouds.
When you can't hear your own thoughts
Over rumbling drum rolls of thunder.
I will be the umbrella to protect you
From the freezing rain.
I'd set my bones aflame
Watch them spark and burn.
I'd turn my soul into a Bon fire
Just to keep you warm.
I'd catch fire flies like stars.
I would keep them in a jar
And give them to you.
Because you light up the dark of the night sky.
When I am feeling blue
You are the one that helps me get through
The murk of my lonely thoughts.
And sometimes, I don't feel like you see yourself clearly.
I wish you could see you
The way I do.
I see you in the stars
You talk about them so fondly.
Every constellation reminds me of you.
I wonder if you are made of cosmos.
Such chaotic, pure energy,
I see you in the rain.
You are cold
But inviting.
I'd dance to the music of your soft,
Pitter- patter melody.
I see you in the air I breathe.
Because you are the thing
That
How to Speak Blow TorchHow to Speak Blow Torch
When we were little
It was as if we had gasoline for blood.
Flammable substances coursing through our veins,
Our tongues were the lighters.
We were fluent in the language of blow torch.
But we’re older now.
Our ideas have been dulled down.
When I was little, I told my best friend I wanted to be an astronaut,
He told me ‘But you could explode.’
I no longer know how to speak that way.
How to ignite thoughts and ideas.
How to set myself on fire,
Disregarding the possibility of being burned.
Reduced to ashes.
Because there was another 50% chance
That I’d burn bright like a star.
I hold my tongue now.
My brain almost like a fire extinguisher.
I said I wanted to be a meteorologist.
But I think you have to be smart to be a scientist.
I said I wanted to be a writer,
But I think you have to be talented to do that.
We all are screaming that we want to be alive.
But I think you have to be unafraid,
To catch fire
To do that.
