Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean these artists are underappreciated?
It means that for what they have in their galleries, they deserve much more attention. This doesn't mean they are generally underappreciated, but on dA - yes.

Where do you find all these people?
Often they're my watchers - I check out every user who adds me. Also, I'm a creepy stalker and look through other people's favourites. And group galleries.

Can I suggest a gallery for your feature?
Of course. Please send me a note with a link (not in a comment!). It may take a couple of posts before your suggestion is shown, though, I always have some (-404)'s drafted and waiting in sta.sh.

You Never Buy Me FlowersWhen you come home after a hard day's work,
there's a plate on the counter and food on the stove.
Your favorite bottle is chilling in a bucket of ice;
as you relax in your Lazy Boy, I think, "isn't that nice?"
You never buy me flowers
While you watch a movie or go to play Xbox
I'm standing in the kitchen, elbows deep in dishes.
When you say you're tired and you're taking a nap,
my arms are overflowing with the laundry stack.
You never buy me flowers
After you awaken you want a shoulder rub;
I put down the broom and attend to you at once.
Then you go to shower and find a shirt needs sewn;
once the tear is mended tomorrow's lunch must be tended.
You never buy me flowers
When midnight comes and goes we lay in bed together;
I'm almost asleep when you whisper naughty things into my ear.
You roll me over and I sigh as I look right into your eyes
and shout 'You never buy me flowers' and then I roll back over.

You Never Buy Me Flowers by ladyshadowrage


This exhibits how a woman will feel in her relationship 
at least once. It is a poem that men and women alike can 
emotionally connect with, for women are not the only ones 
who feel unappreciated in a relationship.

SurvivalI.
Bugging out against the new regime, stopping, 
dropping, and rolling the whole way. Greedy eyes, 
bloodlust, friendliness astray;  natural selection 
at its finest.
A stench in the air, dirty tears roll, corpses line 
their minds. Leadership takes hold of some, while 
others are given sweet extermination. 
II.
A group gathers around tents, haphazardly 
ignoring wheezing and rasping from the girl 
with choked smiles. 
 
Painted with ash and shrapnel, sickness 
infiltrate her veins, leaving life weaving through 
the fire. 
Her heart wallops as an attack nears, she whispers 
a silent plea for the group not to  leave. A race 
to evade their ultimate fate, discounts her own meeting. 

Survival by WistfulNebulae


This post-apocalyptic poem from WistfulNebulae 
ponders the question "what if"
--and will leave you wondering.

The Museum of the MindIn reality, the past holds little significance. We can romanticize and exaggerate those moments all we want, but they will remain ghosts.. Nothing more than images inside our heads, and the way we feel about them is a choice.
We are, in part, the sum of everything that has ever happened to us... But more than that, more powerful than that, is the blinding strength of our present consciousness. To believe that any of the hardships, joys, failures, or triumphs we experience in youth are truly relevant to the present moment is a conscious choice one makes. It is not an absolute reality that these instances hold sway over the present. The most common argument for that is, "Those moments make me who I am today." No, they don't. You make you who you are today. You are a separate entity entirely from your memories. Your present mind creates the image of self you currently have, and at any moment you can change that image. All of those memories are just events that

Her Name Was AliceI knew I'd never forget those days as they unfolded while the sun slowly fell over the horizon. We sat together in every class, laughing at whatever jokes were told, no matter how distasteful they were. We didn't really have anyone but each other. I'd tell her of my worries of becoming someone man enough to replace my late father, and she'd tell me about her hardships. The trouble she had covering her bruises, or her constant fear of displeasing her mother. 
In the evening, we'd watch the sun fall over the river. Though as soon as those streetlights came on, we had to rush home to avoid the wrath of our parents. I often would stay up wondering how she was. I'd wonder about all the pain--emotionally and physically--she would constantly be in. I often found myself craving the sunlight, signalling the start of my daily cycle with her. 
It wasn't until I turned fifteen that I realized I had fallen for her. She was perfect in beauty and in grace. A beauty that the rest of the worl

time to go adventuring by Turqmoose

they never said to grieve for dying starsi don't want to write about stars, but
that's all there seems to be:
nebulae drawn up like harp strings itching
to be plucked; echoes of light like calls for
encore; the kicked-off blankets at the
edges of the universe unraveling
at the seams like the nightmares are
finally winning
tell me a story about time, the way the
sunlight hits its mark and how the world
turns away -
how the distance deepens, deepens, the 
dark a gnawing glimpse, the taste of

tell me - weren't we seedlings,
star-built and scattered? weren't
the echoes more than dredges, less than
tidal waves, infantile monsoons
to be grasped and dragged behind
weren't we taught where we came from?
runaway irony (FFM 22)Twenty minutes after finishing the documentary on New Zealand, Nicole had a plan worked out. She wrote it all down in gel pen, an itemised list of all the things she needed; then she got to work.
It wasn’t easy to convince the man in Bunnings to sell her nails, but she put on her best innocent face, and told him it was for her father’s garden shed. It wasn’t easy to convince the neighbour to let her have the old fence palings, either; nor the logs that had been earmarked for a bonfire, but a few hearty fibs and her best “I just want to help my daddy” smile went a long way to convincing them.
Two weeks later, she had bruised hands, a lot of knowledge about how not to use a hammer, and what she hoped would pass for a half-decent raft. She packed herself a bag with some clothes and spare underwear, then packed another bag, this one larger and wheeled, with as much canned food as she could carry. Before she left, she remembered to grab the can op
Ophelia unrelentingI keep all the
even-numbered petals
underneath my tongue :
they're the ones
that say you
love me -
- love me not
in this madness,
in this suspended
state of grace :
I will soldier on,
my darling.
I will not allow
this willow branch
to surrender.


Bieszczady V by BloodyKissesLady

"You've done everything you can do. Save yourself! ...

Asabikeshiinh (Filter)Asabikeshiinh (Filter)
I wear the dream snare like a chain.
The willow hoop filled with spider thread,
sway loose as the aves feathers 
catch beneficence
and the spun yarn traps the fallen.
I tread subconsciousness 
like salmon swim
in the falls of Williamette.
And watch the net
take hold of chimera,
a phantasm of phenomena
as I greet the cousin of death
with a firm shake of the hand
and respectful grin.
But wisps of spirits tempestuous 
reverberate throughout the lace,
as the new day slowly begins to take shape.
Light returns to Earth as my eyes open.
Conceptions' theories last so long
before absoluteness' presence grabs hold.
I'd rather immerse myself in abstractions.
FFM 2014: The Selkie    He watched the waves and waited, every night, bringing only a blanket and the shuttered lantern with one side left open to light the way. And every night she came, stepping onto the shore and slipping out of her second skin, shivering and wet, her dark hair in dripping tangles about her shoulders. Still as lithe and moon-pale as the first day he’d seen her so many years before. Still as remote and unfathomable as the sea.
    He never asked questions, never tried to speak at first, just handed her the blanket and wrapped one arm around her as they made their way up the shore to the Lighthouse. Still dripping she would visit the children’s room, and watch them sleeping as the first blush of dawn touched the horizon. 
    He’d make her breakfast; pancakes were the favourite, and by the time the kids were ready to get up she would be herself again, loud and smiling and present, and the wildness o
It's NotIt's not the lipstick gloss
that makes a kiss
but
the warm pulse beating through
her lips.
It's not their size
nor shape
but the words they whisper,
afterwards.
It's not the color
nor the length
nor the glint
of her hair
that makes her special
but
it is her smile
in the falling rain
reflecting the joy
of yet another Spring,
together.
It's not the time
she spent getting beautiful
that makes her so
but in fact
it is the hours
she was besides my bed
when I was sick
and in fact
it is the minutes
I could hear her breathe
in my embrace
AND in fact
it is the seconds
I saw her cry
(out of happiness)
Because she's beautiful.
It's not the clothes,
nor the jewellery,
nor the colored nails,
nor the drawn-in brows,
nor the words she says
to other people,
and neither it is
her past.
...
It is her mind
that entertains my poems,
it is her charm
that paints my cheeks
(pink)
and averts my shy eyes from her
most briefly.
It is her soul,
that I love.

I saw her dancing in the rain one Saturday afternoon, nude. Not a stitch on her, and dancing by the creek, red welts rising on her skin from the biting mosquitoes.  She never danced. I watched, and marveled that she could dance and still look sad.
When the rain let up, she stopped and stared at the creek flowing and bubbling over big flat mossy rocks. I called her name without using my voice, and she turned, but then looked away again. I wondered where she was in her head, that she could stand there and ignore the itchy bites and not worry that she was naked.
I envied her lack of self-consciousness. I pulled my heavy cardigan around my shoulders, even though it was hot and muggy out. I hid in its folds like a turtle hides inside its mobile home.
Sometimes I could feel her tugging at me, begging. I was stubbor

Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week. By featuring just a single deviant, I hope to give the deviant some exposure and bring a little beauty to your week. I also include a short description about the artist and/or what draws me to their work.

I accidentally came across Naolito today while creating this post. This first design that I saw really captivated me, it was incredibly stylish, and made usable by so many due to the availability of the item as a t-shirt and sweatshirt online! The design it self is really fun and enjoyable.. 

Indiana Mouse - T-shirt of the week by Naolito

The images that Nacho creates are fantastic! In his biography he writes: 
I’ve working as an illustrator since 2009. In that time, I’ve dedicated most of my time designing for t-shirts, so most of my works are focused on that field. Apart from that, I have experience with illustrations for web, digital painting and posters. I’m always trying to face new challenges to take my work to the next level.

I like this ending by Naolito

I encourage you to check out all of Naolito's designs and consider taking a look at his store which contains all types of cool items!
