dA love for everyone! #84

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: Miss-Belfry :iconmiss-belfry:

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

I really am quite shy and quiet when there are many people around and feel most comfortable in the company of one or two friends, which for some reason are very hard to find in my case. Also I like to paint.

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

I have been looking for online communities that enable people to share their creative outcomes and deviantART was the first place I came across. Being quite clumsy when it comes to computers and anything digital I was glad to have found anything at all so I decided to join. That was many years back now (I had another account before this one) but I'm glad I stayed. :)

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

I have to blame my wonderful mum for that. She used to engage me and my siblings in as many creative activities as possible from an early age on so it was something I naturally grew into and never really questioned.

The Day I took the Moon out for a walk by Miss-Belfry

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

There are so many things that inspire me but if I had to pick one I'd say it's nature. I love taking endless walks through the forest or alongside the beach – you always discover something new and I get many ideas for projects from the most overlooked things.
At its maximum my creativity is probably right at the beginning of any new project and goes downhill from then on... which is why I unfortunately only finish such a small number of projects that I start.

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

It's hard to imagine but I'd probably be a mathematician. I always liked maths.
Or I'd have a 'lost&found' kind of shop. That'd be fun.

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

Guiding the book is a very special work I created for a very special project – a book that is traveling all over the world, uniting so many artists in such a wonderful, personal way. Everyone who finds one of those books in their mailbox one day will understand just what's so beautiful about it. :)

Commission: Muriel Morgentau by Miss-Belfry

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

Yes, many. But they are important to keep me going until some day I might be able to do my vision justice with the things I put down on paper. I'm quite certain that day will never come which makes it my aim in life – my purpose.

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

It definitely boosted my confidence a lot. At a point when I pretty much hated everything about myself (as most teenagers do) I always knew I had this one thing I was quite good at. Living it out helped me more than once to forget all about the not so wonderful rest.

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

To go swimming with dolphins. :heart:

Little Amelia by Miss-Belfry

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Don't let anyone discourage you in pursuing your aims! Keep on drawing (or whatever your creative passion is), and dreaming, and flying.

The water is all moving in the same direction.
To the left.
I like the left side of the boardwalk.
Sideways, not longways.
The sand's not moving. But I am.
my life is like a spinning platform,
the one you stand on
while you're trying to get into your log flume boat.
That doesn't make sense.
There's a peninsula
(small one)
of charcoal rocks.
I want to be standing on the very edge of them.
I would be powerful
and then jump in for a swim.
There's nothing more mystical than laughing.
Everyone has such a nice laugh.
I see a middle aged couple nearby.
I want to be them one day.
Maybe not.
The woman keeps putting her hands in the water.
It is fall.
I hope he loves her.
They're gone.
The water is green.
There are two birds by the water now.
They remind me of the couple.
Everything's grey..
except the sand.
You know how the world is on
such an angle when you lean your head
to the side?
craning your neck..
I wish I was falling when I di

She Was    Sometimes all I think about is the day when she'll come back home.
    She was my April morning, my jazz singer, my bourbon on those cool Appalachian nights. I was her October evening, her dance partner, her tequila on those lazy mountain afternoons.
    She was a transient entity, a golden place-keeper in my million-dollar hymnbook. Her stars were always aligned, it seemed, and whatever fruit was her favorite seemed always ripe and ready for her to pick. I sensed that she had a bag packed somewhere, hidden away, in case she was suddenly called away on some important, undisclosed mission. Her mind wandered, her soul searched, but her heart never really fell far from our cabin.
    The day she went away began the same as any other. I woke up early, made breakfast, served her in bed. She gave me a small smile and made space for me to join her. Through he

and now
here we are
  and hearts break;
they break
into the black holes
   behind them
 and everything
becomes that which
 has nothing
to do with being spoken
