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!
Tell us what defines you as a person.
Many things... but I'll just say one of them: my faith in good! I'm a strong believer in karma! I really believe that if you are a bad person that's gonna hunt you down, one way or the other, sooner or later... How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
Looking for inspiration on the internet I discovered this community which was exactly what I needed: to learn from the best and maybe give something back. When and how did you discover your passion for art?
At a very early age, in the first years of school. I remember I just loved the smell of pencils and was very excited every time I got a new set (20 years later and i feel the same). What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
Intense feelings captured in a photograph inspire me the most. Every time I see a picture so full of emotion all i can think is: i have to draw this ! So I think that's when my creativity is at its maximum. What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
I'm not a professional, but if it hadn't been drawing, it would be photography. What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
Most of them have a personal meaning, but I'd say Hope dies last
is the most meaningful... drawn in a struggle time of my life and I think the title says it all. Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
Yes, and I bet every artist has them, that's what makes us try harder, get better ! Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
It does help me every day! I am grateful for being able to escape into my world every time I'm drawing and forget for awhile about the bad or sad things in my life. What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
A world trip. A few words for our fellow artists?
"Alis grave nil" = nothing is heavy to those who have wings. So never lose your wings!
LifePeople often say that life is a wonderful gift, that we should be thankful for having it. Because life is something beautiful, something you should embrace and love. Death on the other hand is something to fear. Because death is the end of life and the end of something beautiful must be ugly because otherwise it wouldn’t kill something beautiful. How do we know it’s not the other way around?
Being happy is great. Being cheerful is great. Being joyous is great. But you can’t always be happy, or cheerful, or joyous. Because when you think nothing could go wrong, that you finally got everything, perhaps not the way you planned but in another way, a better way, life decides to show up. And life takes you by the shoulders, shakes you around a little before it looks you in the eyes. And life says:
- What you have, I shall take from you. Your happiness, your cheerfulness and your joyousness. And I shall replace it with grief, with sadness and with sorrow.
Sooner Rather Than LaterSit on the bay with me,
and watch as the sail ships
glide effortlessly across the water
Look as they weave
around the monuments
of frozen water,
great beasts of ice that
grew too huge to be found
in your coca cola,
but were too small to become
their own continents.
Watch as the dorsal fin
of the great white shark
splits the path of
its waters like
Moses with his staff,
and as it tears the glass
of calm cold nature in half.
Look as it nears
the slow, old ships,
like a torpedo
like a pencil looking
to make its first mark on
a sheet of unknowing paper
and understand with me
that in some point in time
the teeth of the great
will split the hearts of
the meek in two
[if not only because they are meek]
and shed a tear with me
because you realize
as I do
that it will happen
sooner rather than later
Anger"Your anger is a gift" He said to me,
"To be used carefully"
He spun a tale, of Rage and deceit.
For us to take as we would, individually.
Between the shifts of his elderly voice,
I saw Anger as a choice,
Not a gift, but a dormant aspect of the world as a whole,
And an essential ingredient of a perfect soul.
"If that's what the case may be, how can the whole world be so blind, and only you can see?"
He thought he had shaken my resolve, but it wasn't because the world could not see,
"Imperfect, I suppose the world chooses to be,
Short lived happiness and not striving to be free."
The man gaffed "If imperfections make up the happy as a whole, why not leave them alone?"
My eyes swept to past atrocities, and I said, clearly.
"Either by gift or choice, anger needs to be in place,
To preserve the illusion of perfect happiness, on an imperfect human race"
As the elderly man's breathing thinned, he reached up
"I suppose I should be grateful, and filled with utmost glee,
That you have the knowl
smoky lipsshe misses him still
mostly in the morning
when the blinding sun
it's the cigarette smoke
the lingering scent
of his smoky lips
against her temple when
the bright sun seeps
into the thin
no she thinks
it's the way the skin
on his finger
would trace circles,
on her hip bone
every morning the same
What If...What If...
Her heart trembles and her soul shakes;
Fear crushes her spirit and destroys her dreams.
What if...the eternal question.
What if she never finds another love to hold her,
Arms to shelter under
Or eyes that accept the scars?
Love escaped her once,
And who would dare give her a second glance
When all her beauty seems to be internal?
How does a sociophobe meet people?
What if her body rejects her next baby,
Like it rejected the one before?
Snuffing out the heart beat that once was strong,
Tearing it away from the shelter of the womb
To leak slowly out in blood clots.
How does a PCOS person hope to have children?
Fear crashes down like a tsunami,
Wiping out all reason.
What if she fails again?
