dA love for everyone! #96

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 13, 2014, 4:14 AM


:dalove:         :la:         :dalove:         :la:         :dalove:


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: toonfed :icontoonfed:

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

Geez, i don't know. I guess i'm as a person who is grateful for being put it in the path of the pencil and the paper. It reads pretentious? I hope not.

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

A friend of mine told me once, you should put your drawings on dA and i said, what? And once he showed me deviantART i fell in love with it. I joined the community, because it was really a community and i made many friends here.

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

My dad used to collect old comic books and once i found them it blew my mind. I guess i started to draw all those i liked in every surface i found.

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

Well it's hard to know. I always thought that this is a profession of feelings and we as artists find our gasoline in every day. It could be an idea, an awesome movie you saw, many thing, even sadness. And when that hits you, you're at your maximum.

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

Well i always wanted to be a broadcaster or a chef, i love to cook and probably i will be on this track.

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

I guess it's the calvin and hobbes the movie poster. Sometimes i do this kind of ideas on photoshop just for the fun of it, and i never expect people react so good at it, and that makes it special because it was unexpected and because it's not a drawing.

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

Always, once you think too much about a piece it becomes a difficult one. I think the artist who is so comfortable with his work and doesn't find a problem in his pieces it's a halted artist. This is about getting better everyday, even if it's 0.1%.

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

Yeah of course it helps me mainly to relax when i have some trouble at home and brings the food to my table. So it solves most of my problems.

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

Publish a comic book. In the past i never found the time to finish it, and now that i work as freelancer, i'm beginning to collect the money to print it. I think it'll be in 2014.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Well i think... you shouldn't sell your artwork, or work as an laborer or a workman. Art its not for sale, as a serial product. Every piece you do, must your best one, and in order to do that i recommend to study many techniques as possible and never stop. Right now i'm learning to paint acrilyc. Keep going!

Literature Feature

Would You Remember Me?If I should burn
Would you hold my hand until it went up in flames?
If I should freeze
Would you sit by me until the tips of my fingers were colored purple?
If I should die
Would you think about me until my last breath is forced past my unwilling lips?
- -
If I should live
Will you stay by my side to remind me?
red.these cigarettes will kill 
me, but only if
i don't do it first. 
(inhale, breathe, hold, exhale. then concentrate on the scenery. feel the smoke on your tongue and think about how you're killing yourself, when in reality, you're already dying.)
we're all going to
die, so what's one
day less? it seems like an
honest bargain to me,
but then again, you should never
listen to a word i 
say, because i am
a class A fuck up 
(or so they say). 
see, i'm either too fat
or too skinny,
much too heart wild
for any man too marry. 
("who would want to marry a girl like you? you're too stubborn," my father says. i am fifteen with purple hair and fire on my cheeks and my heart coiling away from my sleeve. 
"fuck anyone who wants to take anything about you away," my mother tells me when i'm nearly 16, with sad eyes and a worn out expectation.)


but i think i realize now
that i don't
care. 
for me i am good enough,
good in general,
an

society threads her like a needleoh,
she is the child of
seam-wrecking morbidity.
clutching needles in the
palm of her mind's eye,
she gnaws and
twists and
spits her body slick,
down
  down
     down
until she can thread
through "perfect" at last.
it's a cruel vision,
that eye-of-a-needle.
and she's been beautiful
since forever.
oh, it makes me cry.
ah,
she's the one with
spiderweb skin.
all membrane and silver,
see-through in the moonlight
i could blow her away
with bated breath and my
whispered, desperate prayer:
"please
love yourself again."

step away from that mirror,
and the scale.
you'll find yourself wanting.
ah, it makes me cry.
sevenyou told me to stop feeling sad
as if it were something
tangible in my grasp
that i could simply drop
on the floor next to your old
dress shoes
to sweep under the carpet
and forget about.
but in the end we're going to
have to lift the carpet
and all of that dust
is going to filter into my lungs
anyway.
you're a fool if you think otherwise.
Chocolate Boytell me,
would it be alright
for me to fall in love
with you?
helplessly
i stand here;
heart in hand
while it beats
completely captivated,
i can't stop
this tidal wave
of thoughts
and emotions
as you sing
oh so seductively
into my ears,
as if your words
are only meant for me;
just me,
they seem to tease me,
that chocolate tone
of yours wrapping me up
in something warm
and comforting,
oh,
how the words
that leave the bow
of your kissable lips
seem to flaunt
such beauty from
within,
tell me,
would it be alright
for me to fall in love
with you?
for i think i'm
falling
from a distance
and you
don't even
know my
name.
