As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: GrahamSym :icongrahamsym:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

Ordinary family man with a love for music and art.

:bulletyellow: How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

Friends on Fractalforums suggested that I join.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

For as long as I can remember I have been passionate about being creative.

Boldly Go by GrahamSym

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

I can't say specifically what inspires me. I am more creative when I have spare time.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I don't know! I cannot imagine not being creative.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

My most meaningful deviation is Swimming pool? First door on the right. It is special because I got a daily deviation and I didn't even know what it was at that time until everyone kept congratulating me!

Swimming pool? First door on the right. by GrahamSym

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

I do have insecurities about my art especially when I first joined. I thought everyone was being kind to the newbie.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

Art has helped me deal with lifes problems. Putting a hammer and chisle to a large lump of wood gets rid of a lot of frustrations!

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

Play guitar with Jimi Hendrix.

Literature Feature

The Wolven PrideThe Wolven Pride:
We are hunted down as monsters;
By legends demonised.
We are feared as devilish creatures
In your pitiful human eyes...
But let me try and teach you
Of why we do not fear.
Because we actually enjoy it
When the hunters seek us here.
In the forest we are champions
In the night we rule the lands.
The hunter becomes the hunted
And dies by our hands.
Fangs will pierce his fragile throat
His flesh is torn to shreds.
It is the fear and scent of death
That the hunter truly dreads.
But we alone shall know no fear
For by the moon we shall be blessed.
Draped in Luna's loving embrace;
We bet our life with every breath.
Unkillable, untouchable
That is who we are.
The wolven pride of werewolves
Is arrogance from afar.
Viewed by trembling creatures
Wetting themselves in fright.
We appear as snarling punishers
In the glory of the night.
Here in the deepest shadows
Where the light will never reach.
We silence the mouths of humans
For we tire of what they preach:
"Lord protec
Lord of the DawnDear Lord of the dawn,
you don`t belong to these scared nights!
I should exist, I should fight
as a bird without wings,
with broken bones, sometimes alone…
You can leave me before the midnight.
Please don`t lose the time,
you are still young for that abyss,
when I breath and exist…
The demons will waste your innocence,
please take your last chance…
If you stay here, you must drink my blood,
there isn`t another  way to stay alive,
but that will make you a slave
of the black destiny,
please listen to me….
Don`t follow me!!!
Stay on the bright side
`cause my life fades away…
I love you desperately
My Lord of the dawn.
:thumb291240222: Momma Said 'Stop Being Gay'Momma said "stop being gay,"
As night, to morning, faded;
Its beauty was not made to stay,
But hoary grew, and jaded.
I watched as day, with fractured light,
My every fear, rekindled,
And passion fell away to plight,
And hope but further dwindled.
Momma said "stop being gay,"
With hatred, and distress:
My tender love where sin held sway...
"Impure, and meaningless."
Within my heart and soul, I lived,
For all else had bereft me,
And nothing more could be perceived
Than how her words had left me.
Momma said "stop being gay."
For years, I never fought her,
But silently, and hopeless, lay,
The Lord's forgotten daughter.
I've sacrificed a waking dream:
My truest love, to merit
A heaven, and, in death, to seem
Not evil, but imperfect.
-Sophie J
I'll Remember YouI'll remember you
when someone steals my breath
so I can't even speak.
I'll remember you
when the rain beats so hard
I can't hear myself think.
I'll remember you
when I see a careless smile
on a young girl's face.
I'll remember you
when my heart aches
in a lonely place.
I'll remember you
when the going gets rough
and no one's there for me.
I'll remember you
when I fruitlessly wish
for things that used to be.
I'll remember you
when I see someone smile
as they hide a sigh.
I'll remember you
when someone's surprised
at the word "goodbye."
I'll remember you
when another claims to be
my other half.
I'll remember you, darling...
I'll remember and laugh.
