Collection: Dia de Los Muertos

Fri Oct 31, 2014, 1:25 PM
Day of the Dead by misscarissarose







Dia de los Muertos


“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the indestructible bonds of family being forever connected—even in the next world.









Christopher Carrion by CliveBarker



















His Books of Blood in the 1980s established him as a premier master of the horror narrative, on an equal level or even surpassing Stephen King, who said of him;











I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker.


Stephen King










Like King, Barker’s works of horror have been adopted and adapted for movies, his stories becoming the basis for the Hellraiser and Candyman series and many more. Beyond his stories being used as source material, Barker has worked as screenwriter, producer, actor and director in the film world.


As with Stephen King, many of Clive’s fans have found him through enjoying his horror tales used as source material for films. (Sadly, such is the decline of the “reader” in the internet world.) His “Pinhead” character, a collector of souls, emerged from the pages of The Hellbound Heart to become the iconic focal nemesis of the Hellraiser movie series. His face full of nails has almost become thought of as Clive Barker’s alter ego. Clive has had a love-hate relationship with the movies. He directed the original Hellraiser and his “butchered in studio re-editing” Nightbreed has been recently re-released on Blu-Ray. He had his best luck with Lord of Illusions and Candyman.









Pinhead
























Clive’s writing has taken several directions since being born in the most hardcore horror narratives. In 2002,the first of his self-illustrated Books of Abarat series received the Bram Stoker Award for Best Work for Young Readers.









Babilonium





It was also chosen by the American Library Association as one of its “Best Books for Young Adults.” Inspired by ideas coming to him in dreams, Clive’s 825-page magnum opus Imajica explores the themes of God, sex, love, gender and death through the prism of Barker’s “dark fantasy.” His more recent writings have turned more toward contemplative fantasy than his earlier exercises in relentless horror.




It’s instructive that only his success in powerhouse horror stories eventually gave Clive the creative space to explore the many spiritual and existential themes that his more recent works have continued to develop. His expert blurring of the mental retaining walls separating  the concept of Heaven and Hell, or his recombinant conception of pleasure and pain principles, suffuse his “dark fantasy” works with a societal subversiveness far more profound than the shocks of his “straight horror” earlier works. His early tales can be read for fun. His later work requires some contemplation of the evanescent nature of personal reality.













Never content to rest on his laurels, Clive is also an accomplished visual artist, and has long been a gallery-quality painter in the fine arts world, illustrating more and more of his own books.









Marapozsa Street





As an ‘artist first’ creative, all of Clive’s works, no matter the medium, begin with a painting. His artwork has been exhibited at Bert Green Fine Art in Chicago, at the Bess Cutler Gallery in New York and can regularly be seen at the Century Guild gallery in Los Angeles.


DeviantART is currently running multiple challenges for deviants to turn the table and write a horror or fantasy short story or poem to tell the tale behind any of the several Clive Barker original paintings he has provided from his private collection.




He has, as well, submitted both an unpublished short story and a poem to his gallery that we are spotlighting. Clive’s writings are like nothing that ever came before them. As you study his paintings, you will find that his visual imagination expressed in his brazen brushstrokes is just as unique and forceful as the audacious voice of his literary inventions.

The really exciting news is that Clive Barker’s Books Of Blood, not having been published in 25 years, have been released today as Madefire Motion Books here on DeviantArt. Don’t take our word for it, take a look at the gorgeous preview below of the first installment, Books of Blood adapted into motion by writer Mark Alan Miller (Next Testament, Hellraiser) and artist mister-sam, The Books of Blood pushes the limits of the motion comic platform and the boundaries of terror. The motion book was produced by Clive’s nephew, Gareth Barker.



























Paintings and Drawings, Volume One

Clive's art can not only be seen on his DeviantArt page, but also in two gorgeous new books of his art. The first can be purchased from the Century Guild website.


While the most recent, which has already surpassed its Kickstarter goal, has only a few days left in its campaign.








25 Years Later: The Director’s Cut

You had to be there. Watching Clive Barker talk about the restoration of his fantastical vision, the audience sighed as he brushed tears aside to thank everyone who helped complete his picture. The film took on a whole new life as the monsters assumed their true role as the heroes of the tale. Executive Producer Mark Miller led a tireless campaign to find and restore the forgotten footage and quite rightly shared Clive’s standing ovation as the curtains closed.


The newly completed restoration is now available on Blu-Ray.

How did publishers first react to the submission of a “Young Adult” book by Clive Barker? How difficult was it to get The Thief of Always and Abarat published?









I had the greatest difficulty, actually, with all of those books. There is a great reluctance amongst publishers to give successful genre writers the freedom to travel somewhere a little distance from the genre where they’ve been most successful.













The Thief of Always (1992)










I had to beg, steal and borrow; and say please, please, please.”









But eventually I actually sold The Thief of Always, which I had written already, for a dollar to Harper Collins in England. This is a somewhat reduced sum of money by comparison with my usual advances for a book. But, it was the only way I could get them to publish the thing.









Commexo Kid







I said to them, “Alright, you publish this for a dollar and I understand that you’re going to do your best by this book but I also understand that you don’t have much expectation, but I also understand that you purchased it for a dollar and you’re risking very little. But I have faith that if you give it the chance to perform in the marketplace it will do very well for you.”


They put it out there and they packaged it very well. There were some reviews that said “Alright, why is Barker doing this?” But then there were a lot of reviews that were very friendly toward it. And the book ended up very successful. Not immediately, mind you, but it gathered momentum. I think there is a certain sense that I’m not a horror author, and I’m not.





I’m an Imaginer, as I’ve said many times before.”





There are certain books in my oeuvre that preceded The Thief of Always, books like Weaveworld for instance, which are fantasy books. They’re not horror books. I thought, in some ways, Thief of Always fell into the same style as Weaveworld.











Candy Dressed for Abarat (Triptych)










Abarat (2002)





Abarat was a thornier problem, because I had told Harper Collins a long time ago that I wanted to write something that was in the same style as the Narnia books. To add to that idea, I had started to paint oil paintings to illustrate the books, and in fact that’s where the books were coming from narrative-wise. They were originating in my paintings, which is an odd thing for anyone to do, but it sort of worked for me, because it was a way for me to surprise myself.



There are are now many hundreds of oil paintings for Abarat, and not all of them by any matter of means will be published within the five books of Abarat. But, because I have Century Guild looking after my work and representing my work and publishing my work in various forms, I think the world will be able to see everything that I’m painting.

You executive produced Gods and Monsters, the marvelous film about James Whale's last years. How much of an affinity do you feel with Whale?









Interesting question, this. The initial conversation with Ian McKellen, to have him play James Whale, happened in the room I’m sitting in right now. He didn’t want to play the role. He felt that it was a somewhat melancholy depiction of what homosexuals were like, and he felt that as an out homosexual who had been very political in his recent life, he didn’t feel like he wanted to engage in a somewhat melancholy vision. But, I sat with him here and we compared notes on some things. One of the things was how much our lives were similar to each others’ lives, and how similar our lives were to James Whale’s life. We, all three of us, are northern English lads. We were all born within probably 70 miles of one another. We’re all homosexuals, obviously. We all had difficulties with the world around us in many ways, and yet at the same time found power and strength in our homosexuality.





And we found strength in using the ways that the universe says no to us as a way to say yes to art.”










Self Portrait





So, the conversations that Ian and I had here, comparing notes, was what got Ian to say yes to the movie and, finally, got me to feel closer to James Whale.

How do people react when they find out you are also a “fine art” level painter whose artworks are as notoriously audacious as your literary works?









This is a hard one to answer. I do this stuff without really thinking about it too much. People often don’t know that I paint. Recently, though, with Thomas Negovan of Century Guild having taken hold of my work in a major way, and put out the first volume of the Imaginer book, people have begun to understand what I’m doing a lot more. Thomas has become my great apologist and has really made people understand what I’m doing in a way that I never could. I’m really not that great at talking about my own art.





I’m not particularly good at talking about anything I do, generally. Because I do it with my gut, not with my head.”





I’ve had situations, with both Mark Miller and Ben Meares, in my writing room where I’ve started a conversation and I’ve started with an idea and within 5 or 10 minutes we have an entire script planned out. That’s happened to us a lot. A lot. That’s how I work, really. Ben and Mark have the closest vision, the closest understanding, of what it’s like to be in my head, because they watch me go through that creative process of linking one thought to another, and that to another, and watching it grow exponentially in front of us.


And I do it essentially without having that solid a grasp of what I’m doing, I’m just doing it. So, really, I can’t talk too much about that because while I know when people react to the art, they react pleasurably, but I don’t think I’m very good at being able to explain what I’m doing to them. I can leave Thomas to do that.

How are your satisfactions as a writer and as a painter different? And how are they the same? How do you know in the morning whether you must express yourself on the keyboard or the canvas?









Of course they’re different. Utterly different. For one thing, a painting can be finished in a night; a book takes a year, or at very least 6 months to complete. Writing is fucking hard, and very seldom is it pleasurable. Now...









I destroy a lot of paintings. A lot of paintings. But then, I also destroy a lot of text.”









I’m a very self-critical son of a bitch. I work fast, I think, and that allows me to throw out a lot of things. If I don't let things go, they sort of constipate the whole process and then I can’t move forward, so it really is important to me to not get overly besotted with one particular idea, but to instead simply move on to another one and let that happen.









Untitled







Right now, I’m working on the last two Abarat books and a couple of other things for young audiences. I’ve been working on a lot of paintings.





I’ve done over 400 paintings in the last 6 months. It’s a race now, really.”





I’m a 62 year old man, and I have a lot to do. I’ve been very sick the last few years. I had a period of being in a coma, and that left me sick for a long time afterwards, and I’m only now just coming out of that sickness.


So now, I’ve got a lot of stories to tell and a lot of people to love and a lot of dogs to raise and parrots to adore and all that good stuff. I have life to live, in other words, and that’s important. But, the satisfactions of writing and painting are very, very different. They are not really, in any way, the same. I suppose you could say, “Well, they’re the same because there’s a blank piece of paper or a blank canvas at the beginning and at the end there’s a finished thing.” But, that’s honestly the only similarity. A finished painting is not anything like a finished novel in any way shape or form. How do I know in the morning whether I must express myself on the word processor or the canvas? Well, first of all, it’s a handwritten process so there’s no word processor at all. But, I usually do both in a day. It isn’t ‘either or.’

How much of a help has it been in having a fan base in online worldwide communities like DeviantArt? Has the support been genuinely palpable and benefiting to your good spirits?





It’s been wonderful! To have the deviantART folks help me touch base with people all over the world, it’s been very affirming. The support has been genuinely palpable and absolutely benefiting to my good spirits. There have been dark times of late and I’ve been so grateful to have people from all over the world who are able to tell me what they like and don’t like.








6



Is there anyone special project you’re currently working on, or planning, or dreaming about doing, that might eventually become a future reality for your fans to look forward to?





Yes, there is. And I ain’t going to tell anyone what it is. It’s one of the things I’ve learned over time: don’t tell anybody what your sweetest and dearest dreams are creatively, because that’s the way to kill them stone dead. So, yes, I have a couple of things that are very close to my heart, and that’s where they will stay, until such time that they are published or painted.

Poe, Lovecraft, Barker, King. How do you feel being added to the to that exalted honor guard of horror masters?








I can’t answer that. I want to be reasonably humble here.”







I do my thing, they do their thing. It doesn’t sit well with me to elevate myself in that way. It’s hubris, and it’s totally inviting someone to kick the legs out from under you. So, rather than say, yes, I am in the same ranks as Mr. King and Mr. Poe.




I’ll say this: I do my thing. I imagine, and sometimes I do good stuff and sometimes I do shit stuff and I’ll continue to do it. Whether I belong with them or not is up to someone in the future to judge, not me.









8



Finally we’d like to ask you to select your top five Deviant Artists from the community.







It's an impossible thing you ask. How can a man choose his favorite artists from such a wellspring of creativity. I can only offer 5 names that have recently inspired me:


















  1. Does it please or disappoint you when an artist with Clive Barker’s imagination and superlative talents of expression chooses to explore the darker side of human existence?



  2. Once a writer (or artist in any media) establishes him- or herself in a specific genre (e.g., “Clive Barker: Master of Horror”) do you feel betrayed or intrigued when that artist tacks to a new course (“Clive Barker: Fantasist Imagineer;” “Clive Barker: Young Adults Author”)? Do you welcome or resent joining the artist in this evolution?



  3. Do you think any of the cinematic treatments of Clive’s fiction (e.g., Candyman, Hellraiser” have succeeded in capturing the essence of his original (written) medium? Or are movies and books apples and oranges that defy comparison; each having unique attributes deficient in the other; and each having deficiencies easily resolved in the other.



  4. Would you like Clive to occasionally revisit his full-tilt horror writing in the future, or are you well-satisfied with his current works of his ever-expanding consciousness, like Imajica? (Are you hoping The Scarlet Gospels will be a return to hardcore Barker horror?)



  5. Who are your favorite writers and artists on DeviantArt who explore a darker tone in their works?



  6. What is your favorite Clive Barker book or film and why?

Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers! :la:

Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.

As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article. :)

The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!

Here's a selection of thumbs picked from the thumbshare thread: Supernatural!

Unwilling Little Vampire    A cold wind tugged at my long, black hair. The full moon above me made a spotlight through the dense trees. I sighed. The sound of my footsteps on gravel was the only noise to be heard, besides a coyote in the distance. My breath clouded before me, and I shoved my gloved hands further into my pockets.
    Tonight was the same as any other night- for all the humans, that is. I was human, once. I think. Yes, I'm quite sure I must have been, about two and a half centuries ago. Yes- I was the eldest child and only daughter of a very wealthy family in Boston. Back then I was known as Mary Tailor, of the esteemed Tailor family. Now I'm known as Jenevive Marx, a quiet, detached teenager with dark clothing and snowy skin.

German Jackalope
People from Bavaria can report on many animals
In the natural fauna muddle.
However, nobody here has thought of
One splendid specimen of an animal.
Very peculiar is its shape
And it lives mostly in the dark forest
And also in high mountain regions
It has been seen by some people.
The appearance of it is enormous
In various shapes:
A rabbit head crowned with chamois antlers
And feet from the duck it has as well.
There exists very big and small ones, too
With diverse bodies and legs,
But mainly the head
Will only please to some after a shock.
When you see one, mostly in dark night
With sparling eyes and in full magnificence,
Please always make sure that a Wolpertinger
Can only live happily in the future when left in peace.
Every Wolpertinger is also a bringer of luck.
Bavaria is so famous because
There is the place where
Wolpertingers exist.
World of Vel part 1
A COLLECTION OF ADVENTURES:

DETAILED BY A TRAVELLING HALF-ELF


In the world of VEL


PART 1: THAT ONE DAY

THAT ONE DAY I was walking with my brother, Jin… It started very much like any other day in the tiny wooded village of Verseltra. Each morning began with myself darting from the confines of my home to the shady lands outside, greeted by the familiar trees and walls that kept our village safe. So, if it was such an average day, why begin the story of my travels here? 
Simply put, it’s due in part to the fact that I imagine all the great travelers and heroes of Vel have a day such as this one. A day, where, at the end of their adventures, as they are peacefully soaking in the candle light, surrounded by their trophies and blades and treasures, they could trace it all back to that one moment in time.

Thank you to everyone who took part! We will see you next month with a new forumer and a new theme! :love:
Hello to everyone! I’m so excited to see you could make it to this very special 15th installment of ‘Adjusting The Antennae’ on the spooooookiest of days! Yes, that's right, I have a very special Halloween episode for you all, today! I hope you are all well, enjoying your Halloween and eating a bunch of candy if you celebrate it and if you're like me who doesn't celebrate Halloween, I hope you also get a bunch of candy because you deserve it and you're perfect. I also hope you're enjoying fall as well as it is my favorite season of the year!

Today's guest is an absolute fantastic deviant in every way but before I introduce this lovely and adorable lady, I am your host, chromeantennae
 and I'm glad to have you all here for the 15th episode of ATA. It is an absolute honor to be a part of your day on deviantART. 

And my guest for today’s show is the incomparable OfOneSoul. Kimberly here is one of the most outgoing ladies around, always doing something around our wide literature community. She's a gem of a person, beautiful inside and out, and she is a deviant that I would recommend to everyone because she is definitely someone you want to get to know just to get better acclimated with deviantART as well as talk to an overall lovely person.

So I thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to speak with me for the series, Kimberly. It would've been absurd not to have a person as wonderful you as a part of 'Adjusting The Antennae.' Especially for the Halloween special, so thank you so much. You add so much greatness to this series!


Before we start this interview is there anything you’d like to share with our audience on this day? How have you been, any projects you’re currently working on, any interesting trivia about you we may not know about you? Anything your mind can think of! From a book you’re currently reading to a few of your favorite deviants or a huge declaration. Ha! Anything that you want to let be known before we start this interview.

Indeed... Chromey. :stare: (*stares back*) I have a declaration to make. :paranoid:

I'm in love with a man. A man in the form of a dog. A man named... RAMBO. (He's adorable!)

Rambo the Aussie by OfOneSoul

He's seriously the greatest thing in the world. He follows me everywhere AND barks at anything that gets within 20 feet of my house. What more could you ask for? Other declarations? I'm in love with a group... a group of people I consider my bestest of friends...

The deviants of DA!

I keep coming back to this site because of the energy, the support, and the all-around desire that deviants have to not only better themselves, but help others be all they can be. I have several ongoing projects centered around this, including my Weekly Forum Lit. Contests, How To Be Original Articles, Favorite Favorites Feature, The Best of Today Collection, and more. Upcoming things that I have yet to announce but are certainly in the works? :horny:

I am so grateful to be included in Chromey's continuously informative and entertaining interview series... I pray only to inform as well as entertain as many others before me have done. :pray:

And onto my first question, Kimberly. I’m curious; where did your username originate from? I noticed your tagline says “because I will not live halved,” so I believe that’s a bit of a hint as to the meaning behind it, but I’d love to know where you got it from.

This is such a great question. Seriously. Couldn't have chosen better myself.
(One that I have never had the chance to answer.) :eager:

When I first created this account 4 years ago I was working on a novel called The Abandonment. In it - the main plot consisted of a race of fae that were each born with a piece of the Source's "God's" soul and were to use it to lead, inspire, and guide His/Her people. I became incredibly fascinated with the idea of beings sharing ONE soul and started researching it.

I came across the Confessions of Saint Augustine and found this passage:

"- I felt that my soul and his soul were 'one soul in two bodies':
and therefore was my life a horror to me, because I would not live halved."


It struck such a cord with me that I further implemented the idea not only into my story but my every day life. It not only became my username and tagline - but something I choose to live by. Here on deviantART as a community we are but one being, one soul and to better each other is to help the whole. So no... I will not live halved. I will live fully and in support of my fellow pieces of soul. :heart:

Secondly, you’re a 4-year veteran of deviantART and I’m curious to know how the community impacted you? Any shifts in the community that really left a big effect? Also, we’d love to know what your favorite parts of this lit community are and also what caused you to join deviantART in the first place.

Contrary to popular belief, I did not begin my 4 years as a lit deviant. :stare:

I actually joined 4 years ago to expose some of my more emotional, visual pieces I was spewing out like milk threw my nose when I'm watching a Will Ferrel movie. I wasn't a very happy camper then - definitely not this cheerful, onesy-wearing soul you see before you. Those were darker days, but I found my own niche in the community then and managed to share pieces such as this:

She's Not Real by OfOneSoul Don't Let Go by OfOneSoul I Need Him... by OfOneSoul

- freely and without fear of judgement. Instead - these pieces stirred empathy and inspiration that I still cherish to this day. I wouldn't say there was any shift in the DA community I find memorable - more like, the community grew and my place along with it. DA, after all, has always been DA. The look may have changed and things may be more accessible now and user-friendly... but the concept and unity has ALWAYS been here. In fact, that leads me into the last part of your question:

My favorite part about the lit. community is the unity within. The strong-front that the lit community has created for itself is inspiring. Unlike others, we find numerous ways to support and inspire one another whether through groups, forums, features, etc. I have never seen in any other community the amount of love our wonderful lit-ers show towards one another. I am proud to be involved and surrounded in so much PG-13 romance! :flirty:

Also, because of your wonderful community spirit, longevity, and talent, you were also made a Senior Member, not an accolade many deviants have. So how did you first feel when you received this great honor? And for those that don’t know, Senior Members are selected by the DCO (Director of Community Operations, fourteenthstar) and are given to certain deviants for a multitude of different reasons. To learn more, go here: How do I become a Senior Member?

The day I received Seniority was a... special one, to say the least. It's best said in my Seniority Article:

It's `OfOneSoul now!That's right, you guys! :dummy:
I got TICKED OFF!
Some of you may be wondering
how exactly being ticked off
would make me so fucking happy... :hooray:
So - allow me to enlighten you
on what it is to be a Senior of dA
& how to become a Senior!
:iconlachoirplz:
:FAQ29:
Senior Members of deviantART are selected by the Director of Community Operations (fourteenthstar), after reviewing suggestions made by the community with other full time deviantART Staff. Announcements are made on a quarterly basis and during special, celebratory events such as our birthday.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognize their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Sen


Remember my children... just a little while ago seniors had a nice little tick ` - not this fancy medal you see next to my name now, OfOneSoul <---- :stare:

If you don't feel like perusing the article, lets just say I used a lot of .gifs that included violence, pornographic images, and fairy dust to express my excitement and appreciation towards fourteenthstar and all my fellow deviants who ever supported or believed in me. :tears:

And speaking of impact on the community, you also have quite a few events and contests going on. Things such as dANOM, your Ghost Stories Lit. Contest and a few Llama Parties you’ve held. I would love to know where the lot of these events began for you and what made you start these?

I LOVE HOSTING THINGS. IT'S A CURSE. If there was a nicer word than "curse".. I would use it instead. Like a word for something that you enjoy being involuntarily inflicted on you? GAWD. Now I sound like a masochist. :iconfacepalmplz:

Needless to say - I love creating events where deviants have fun! dANightsOfMystery (the group) actually began after I hosted my very first Murder Mystery Party. I had NO idea the great reception it would receive or that it could ever possibly be considered a group. I simply have a fascination with stories wherein someone dies and no one knows how or why. :shrug: Morbid, I know. Dame Agatha Christie would have been a homie of mine. The Ghost Stories Lit. Contest erupted during a skype convo with IrrevocableFate, DreamingAutumn, & DrippingWords. We all knew we simply HAD to host another contest after the Bestest Friends Contest fiasco - and considering that Halloween was coming up... we realized we were all set for another month of communication and judging. :stab:

And the Llama Parties? I wanted to give things away that involved DA's lovable, badgey friend. Random madness is what I do best. :dummy:

You also impact the community by being involved with a lot of different groups. These include groups like Authors-Club as well as DailyLitRecognition. Can you tell our audience about each of these truly fantastic groups you help run and maintain?

I wouldn't say I have a huge impact on how these groups are run... but I can DEFINITELY share with all of you their awesomeness and why you should go join like... now. :stare:

:icondanightsofmystery: is a group I founded a couple of years ago to host my DA version of Murder Mystery Parties through dAMN's chatrooms. The creation of this group not only made it easier for interested deviants to join in on the fun but also for interested deviants to learn out to host their own! :nuu:

:iconauthors-club: is a lovely group created by the beautiful amour-raven. A couple of years ago when she asked for assistance in hosting the group's first contest - I was more than happy to help her. She has a lovely spirit and supportive personality that shows through in her group and its activities.

:iconlitrecognition: is headed by the wonderful, hardworking SilverInkblot. I was always grateful for the features that DailyLitDeviations provided for our community and was certainly happy to discover that SilverInkblot kept this wonderful tradition going with the creation of DailyLitRecognition. I am even MORE thrilled to be apart of it this time around. :heart:

:icongetdailydeviations: is another supportive group headed by the kindhearted and hardworking Mrs-Durden. Its main focus is always to help rock-star deviants bring their amazing artworks to the forefront of all galleries through the use of DA's badass feature system, Daily Deviations.

There are many more groups I could explain and boast about here - but I think I'll leave it to you, reader, to discover their wonder and beauty all on your own. :eyes:  

Now onto literature-centric questions. You seem to have a pretty fair balance of poetry and prose from your posts. Would you say that’s an accurate statement and if you have a preference between writing the two, what would you say you prefer over the other? Prose or poetry?

I would certainly agree that I have a pretty equal balance of Poetry and Prose. I LOVE dabbling in both and am happy with what I create in each.. usually. :paranoid:

Picking a favorite is easy, however; PROSE. PROSE, PROSE, PROSE. :stare: I don't know if you notice, Chromey, but even in my poetry I lean towards Narrative Poetry... which in essence is "poetry that tells a story". So even in my poetry... I'm writing prose. ^^; Don't know how I've gotten away with it for so long.

And these fantastic writings of yours have gotten you a number of different awards as well as recognition spots. You actually have 2 Daily Deviations under your belt and I wonder, did either DD feel different? From the 2 you currently have (And I bet there is far more in store) which is your favorite and which would you pick to be your next DD if you had your druthers?

Submerged in Swan Lake
Swans and wings are floating by
on a breeze imbued with jasmine and
willows outstretching their arms in welcome.
Through deep breaths he arrives
plunged in murky, pungent water.
A quiet whisper, and he prays -
"Please... may I linger here?"
Willows lower their arms
and jasmine falls to the Earth
where the wind dies and finally rests.  
The crows are cawing hymns,
begging to be swans.
But only the duck submerged in Swan Lake
has delved the desired shore.
Its waters dangerous and plagued
by monsters baring their teeth;
most ghastly and putrid they are
that no crow may ripple its surface
nor any songbird seeking beauty fair.
The Swan Maidens bare their chests
and open their wings in veneration -
for the duck has sought beauty through courage
and earned his guise of grace and virtue.
and Dear Daddy's GirlDear Naive 15,  
You're ignorant as Hell.
You dress in baggy blue jeans, wear an oversized hoodie every day, and never let your hair down. Students at school, and even your mom, think you're gay… and you don't even know.
All of your classmates blame you for a burn book that circulated after that Mean Girls movie. Everyone thinks you're a jealous bitch and secretly they mock you. How can you not see that?
Your teachers are all positive that you cut yourself and that you're always on drugs. Even now you have no idea why they ask you to take your jacket off during class. Could it be that you always wear long sleeves?
It's okay, sweetheart. I had to find out the hard way, too.
Right now you're probably wishing your dad was home. He's the only one that will read your stories and tell you how creative you are. You don't have to beg him to watch movies with you, and he'll listen to your favorite songs without calling you suicidal. Right now, living wi


My first DD will always be special for me, certainly. A special kind of special that no other DD could replace mostly because... it was my first. The shock of receiving it was memorable enough. I bragged about it for days to my fiance who had NO idea what a DD or what deviantart was. Jocks. They're such meat-heads. :tantrum:

If I picked a favorite between Submerged in Swan Lake or Dear Daddy's Girl I would have to go with Submerged in Swan Lake - mostly because it expresses and represents my gallery far better than other. Dear Daddy's Girl was really a once in a lifetime piece; a style of writing that I'll probably never touch on again... but Submerged in Swan Lake, however; is a narrative, mythological poem with a twist that has become pretty common in my gallery. I LOVE WRITING THOSE. :stare:

If I were ever so lucky to CHOOSE my next DD... I'd probably pick...

The Bride of AtlasShe met him when the world was new;
when wars were fought in the cosmos
and celestial beings deigned expose
and visit themselves upon the mortals.
In darkness he came to her;
somewhere between fantasy and the real,
disguised as a human, burly and firm
with want of a lover and yearning for release.
She knew him as a man
and he loved her as his wife.

A Titan he had always been
at battle with Olympians
who garnered all of humanity's love
and chose war over peace to keep it.
As lightning struck, thunder roared,
and waves destroyed the earth,
all grew quiet as Olympus rejoiced
and she knew that he had lost.
Zeus then rest upon his shoulders
the weight of the world eternal.
A punishment made more severe
by lack of warmth from her mortal heart.
He carried his punishment made unending
as Earth's coarsened face gouged his back.
The insects and beasts stung and mauled
and the humans warred and burned his flesh.
Still he held the world atop his shoulders
or Like Vultures When We KissThere was vomit in her throat.
She scrambled out of bed and fumbled in the dark to the bathroom. If the door hadn’t been open she would have never made it. She lifted the toilet seat and let her stress spew from her mouth. The taste was terrible but it was cleansing.
She heaved heavy breaths and clung to the granite of the sink to keep balance. Her fingers stretched across the wall until finally she found the light switch. She flipped it.
The mirror didn’t do her any favors. She pressed her palm to her forehead to feel the heat. The bags under her eyes had grown more noticeable by the day. She was waiting for her producers to either point them out or tell her to “get it fixed”. Her fingers brushed across her eyelids and found their way to the bumps on her neck. She didn’t want to see what was there.
She grabbed her brush lying next to the toothpaste and stood straight, giving the mirror a crooked smile. “I’m Madeline Briarwood, Channel 5


The Bride of Atlas has stayed with me since I wrote it. When people ask me, "Oh, you're a writer? Can I read your stuff?" THIS is what I show them. Not that worthless drabble I wish never happened... but this. :heart: Now Like Vultures When We Kiss is not only my latest piece, but probably my favorite prose piece I've written. It represents the dark, tragic, romantic way that I write and also provides that twist I hope is memorable in my writing. :happybounce:

You’re also very consistent and polished in what you create for both poetry and prose; you’re a very versatile artist and because of that, what is your writing process? What really gets you inspired to sit down and write? What’s your inspiration? How have you gotten your voice down so solidly for both genres of lit?

RESEARCH. ALWAYS AND FOREVER MY INSPIRATION WILL BE... RESEARCH. Research into mythology, history, legends, etc. I read up on the ballet Swan Lake and the idea that beautiful women wore disguises... BOOM! Submerged in Swan Lake was born. Reading about Swan Lake lead me to another link about Sirens, Huldra, Harpies and the like... BOOM! The Mating Season bursts into being!

Researching has always been my favorite past time in writing and what creates the best ideas. In my current novel, Loose Lips, what keeps me going chapter after chapter is research into things I don't know. For example: the novel takes place in Cameron, LA on the Gulf of Mexico. I have NO idea what it's like to live next to a large body of water NOR what it's like to live in a fishing village. As I researched I learned things that became pertinent to my novel and interesting things I could include in my story.

It's an amazing process that I discovered and will never reveal my secrets! EVER!!! :iconstinkeyeplz:

Wait... oooopppssss. :iconnooooplz:

As I mentioned before, you’re an extremely consistent and original writer so when did you first begin to write? You show so much excitement for your community service here as well as literature in general and I want to know what got you on this path. Anything that truly sparked your love for lit.?

I always fantasized about being a writer... my entire life, really. I can't really delve far enough into this ol' memory bank to take you down memory lane for that one. BUT - I can share with you the story of how I FIRST got inspired to be involved as a lit deviant. :eyes:

Years ago... I was on DA NOT as OfOneSoul, but as a fangirl (embarrassing reminiscing coming) - wolverine-fallen09. I created a short story entry for MonicaMarinho's lit. contest at the time, "I Do Believe in Faeries", wherein you had to write a lit piece including TWO races of fae that she had drawn in her "I Do Believe in Faeries" digital art series. I WON FIRST PLACE! As soon as that happened... as soon as she uploaded my award digital painting OF my entry - I was hooked. And although I left DA for a short period after that (because of lack of internet), I will never forget that time in my life. How can I? Her painting is still hanging on my wall. :giggle:

And since you’ve been around deviantART for quite a while now I know that you have seen plenty of literature and writers over your time so I would absolutely love it if you could highlight some of the users you feel don’t get as much attention as they deserve! Let’s start changing that!

OH GAWD - are you asking me to stretch your journal out into 10,000 pages!? Cuz I can, mahn. :stare:

:iconcommandergordon::iconnemox7::iconprettyflour::iconawholelotofflowers::iconvalira1366::iconfriemesis::iconsophietapia::iconboychik::iconherosandzeros::iconilluminara::icon7demented::iconshelleypalmer::iconthelunarwriter::iconthenorthernwriter::iconjust-a-dabbler::iconhazelstar67::iconnathaira-from-hel::iconcopper9lives:

These are just a few - but they all deserve your attention because not only are they amazing writers, but they're kind, supportive people who deserve your love... and I promise, they'll love you in return.

Now that we’ve discussed some of your favorite deviants here are on the site, what are some of your personal favorites in your gallery? What are a few of the pieces you’re most proud of?

Oh, Chromey... how you love to make me think. :iconteheplz: You bastard. :stare: (Hey now! =P)

The Doctors In"He's probably dead," Roger exclaimed as the two kittens giggled mischievously behind him.
Krystal and Amanda had arrived at Coleman Park appropriately attired for the evening. Their previously decided-upon costumes seemed much sexier in person than when Roger was helping them choose outfits at Wal-Mart. Being the edgy person that he was, he had politely declined their offer of buying a disguise for him. He had never celebrated the holiday, and instead purchased a t-shirt that furthered his rebelliousness with bright yellow text that read, 'I don't do costumes.'
His head down and his hands in his pockets, he paced himself up the paved hill that lead to the local, haunted legend. Krystal swung her faux tail playfully and adjusted the large black ears that wouldn't stay in her curly hair despite the obscene amounts of hairspray she had employed. Amanda clicked her heels across the ground. She sprinted in front of Roger and slowed to a smooth strut seemingly fo

The Doctor's In I'm particularly proud of because I believe I have successfully captured my favorite genre to the best of my ability; HORROR. I was terrified writing it - no lie. But the tragedy and sorrow that emerged towards the end? The entire feeling I created in this story will always stay with me.

It's the ApocalypseRed sensors rotated and his gears resonated within him.
He could hear the mass silence that echoed endlessly;
no wind wafting through trees or horns blaring…
- only ghosts.
He sensed the crunch of metal and rust grinding
and the clank of disused limbs popping into place.
The mechanics of his body had forgotten basic processes…
- and he felt ancient.
Saved recordings worked through his hard-drive like memories
reminding him of times with oceans of cities, flocks of humans,
and towers so tall he could stand next to them and be called…
- brother.
The lenses of his eyes fluttered and a new world was upon him;
the sun shone so brightly, alloy sweated from his torso
and the sharp sand beneath his feet grated
- and he began to erode.
The Earth was not as he had left it…
- with farms of humans and armies of titans like himself
who worked to save their creators from their own destruction.
He paced the wasteland they had sought to prevent
and wondered..

It's the Apocalypse is my favorite Narrative Poem in my gallery because it tells the most interesting, atmospheric story. I couldn't top this poem if I tried. It brings to life a world that I'm desperately trying to create in my novel, His Name is Atlas... but have yet to successfully match. :no:

Death BeadsThe lights were bright and she closed her eyes. A loud crashing noise stung her ears. The sound vibrated her ear drum and was almost deafening.
Her eyes fluttered for a moment. She was standing though she didn’t know for how long. A light with no obvious source filled the room and she shied away; her eyes forced to dilate. Her senses were accosted from all sides and she wanted nothing more than to crumble to the ground.
It was harrowing, to say the least.
Light reflected off the four white walls. They were perfect and clean; no dust or distasteful nicks to speak of. Along the right wall was a large, metallic table indented with four questionable dump bins. Was she in a buffet line?
Her blurry vision cleared and she could see just to her left a small, metal stand on wheels. In one tray was a DVD player kept in good condition with title-less, black DVD cases stacked along its sides. On top of the stand was a 32” flat-screen TV. Its cord was wrapped into a circle and pl

Death Beads is a dark comedy piece that I am significantly proud of because of the characters and overall concept. I felt that for once I was able to combine a tragic story with my own, creepy humor. Hopefully some people agree. :paranoid:

Finally, I would love to know what continues to inspire you on a daily basis. You are notorious for constantly buzzing around DLR admins as well as Lit CVs with suggestions and we want to know how you’re able to do it all. With all that you do around the community as it is, what inspires you to continue to suggest so much and what inspires your absolutely infectious attitude? (And what’s your secret? Haha.)

Secret? My secret is... it's a secret. :iconteheplz:

But seriously though - I have NO idea how I keep it up. Sometimes I think that I spread myself too thin - but I don't care! :dummy: I LOVE BEING INVOLVED! I love sharing with everyone, featuring everyone, talking to everyone. The lit community here on DA is the one place I have NEVER felt alone. I'm surrounded by people who feel, think, dream as I do. I keep coming back because I know there is ALWAYS a place for me here. There are always people who love me, miss me, and not only that... but need me to support and help them.

If you've never had that feeling - the feeling of belonging... then just hold on a little longer because I promise, you'll feel it here... if nowhere else. :heart:

And to everyone who tuned in on this day of thanks, I want to thank you all for joining us for the fifteenth episode of “Adjusting The Antennae,” where we try to shift the focus of dA to the greatness of poetry and prose. It is such an honor to have gotten this far with you all and I hope you all know how much I love and appreciate everyone’s support. I also hope that you all enjoyed this fifteenth installment of “Adjusting The Antennae.” Also, also! I hope you all have a wonderful and fun Halloween. And of course, I want to thank the tremendous OfOneSoul for taking time out of her busy schedule to tell us a little bit more about herself and her happenings around dA. 

On one last point, if you know of a writer who deserves more attention or a writer you believe would make for a good interviewee, please comment below or note me with your suggestion(s)! You're also more than welcomed to add questions along with your suggestions, too. Also, if you enjoyed this interview, please show Kimberly some love, spread the word on this series, or just let your thoughts be known on this with a comment!

Princess Celestia Pattern - done (pic warning)

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 11:55 PM
No critiquing this time guys, she's all done! :iconspikederpplz:

Finished her pattern today. This is version 2 (you can see vo1 in the bg). Was allot easier making this pattern with Luna's to base it off. 

SO happy I took the time to make her her own pattern. (I can also use it to make Nightmare Moon, Nightmare Rarity etc :D)

Can't wait to start on the final version now. (also gunna try out some 3d lashes for her)

(note: ears are just placeholders, not the final 3d/good looking ears)
