On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.Earlier today I received a message from our Studio B receptionist letting me know that a package had arrived for me. While I wasn't at the studio, I had my good friend pick it up so I could retrieve it from her later on. At first I was a bit weary to the situation, I didn't know who it was from, nor was I expecting anything in the least. All day while Raven and I passed our time at the mall, I pondered and worried about the strangeness of the situation. I found it odd that someone would send a bouquet of beautiful flowers and two carefully wrapped presents to the studio (who wasn't my husband to be anyhow!)On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Later on in the evening, I met up with Nicole and I finally got to see the gifts in hand. I brought them home and unwrapped them to find two giant boxes of delicious treats, and a letter that made my heart and mind feel at ease again. "SGT Dave", a soldier currently placed in Iraq had sent these wonderful gifts

What is a Secret Santa?
The modern tradition of Secret Santas is a gift exchange, where the person receiving the gift doesn't know who the giver is going to be. In a work environment, you often give and receive multiple small presents before the big reveal. For our exchange, however, only one piece of art is necessary (though not required - if you want to go all out for someone, that is your own prerogative ). For the group, this is a secular proje

Manga/Anime Beauty - An Interview with Princess--Ailish
Manga/Anime / Traditional Media / Drawings / Colored Pencils
Hello all! Today is the beginning of a new month... perfect timing for an interview!
For this fifteenth issue, I interviewed one of the most awesome colored pencil manga artists on dA (and one who's been suggested to me many, many times!) - our dear russian friend Princess--Ailish . She's so kind, her art is vivid and colorful, and it stole my heart the moment I first saw Gwendolyn (as she's the very reason why I've gotten this username and became the Gwen you all know). But anyway, I hope you all enjoy this interview, and don't forget that, if you have suggestions for artists you'd like to see interviewed next, please comment here!
Let's get started
I am not the creator of Powerpuff Girls......or Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. I just worked on them. Those shows were created by Craig McCracken, who happens to be my husband, so I can see how people might get confused.I am not the creator of Powerpuff Girls...4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Ten Tips for Photographing Food1) Set the Table...Ten Tips for Photographing Food3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In the image above, claremanson not only photographs something that looks enticingly delicious and creative, but she has additionally set the scene. She's made up the 'table' so to speak, so that it compliments and even enhances the Food that she's photographing. Looking carefully at your setting is a fantastic way of making your Food look good and unique. It's cheap too, just look at using glasses, sometimes with liquid in them, colourful tablecloths, napkins or any other items that might suit your image. Within cookery books these days, images that 'set the scene' are becoming increasingly more popular and widely used.
2) Play with your Food...
Here, LADYW has not just made a 'salad' or an arrangement of food. She's looked carefully at how she can arrange her food in the most creative and complimentary way. Using shapes and colour to make something look good

How to cope with Art BlocksAlmost every single artist has at one point or the other in their life lost motivation, inspiration or even both and without the knowledge of how to deal with what we then call an Art Block, it can take a long time to overcome this lack of artistic drive. A time that might otherwise be used for further improvement and personal artistic growth.How to cope with Art Blocks4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So today I would like to give you a few tips on how to defeat an art block. There is no definite guarantee to either of them, as everybody experiences their blocking differently but maybe you can at least find small suggestions that will eventually help.
Inspiration is literally everywhere, you just need to open your eyes to see it.
We can find inspiration through:
Letting your favourite books, movies, series or games inspire you is always one of the most obvious ways. Fan Art is a good way to retrieve inspiration because most of all y

Tell us a bit about yourself, josefinejonssonphoto! How did you get into photography and why?
I've been interested in art since young age. I used to draw a lot during high school, especially realistic portraits. But after a time I felt that I wanted to experiment with other medias. I photographed a lot of nature with a point and shoot camera at first but I felt that I would like to try working with models instead. So I asked my best friend to model for me in a great field of flowers. I think it was my first shoot with a model so it was very fun and since that shoot I've wanted to continue with photography.
Why are you on deviantART?
I think I discovered deviantART through the site Gaiaonline. I used to post my photography there and was recommended to look up the site. I immediately started to upload my work and recieved gr

Time is a wonderful thing.Sorry I haven't been on in a while! Things have gotten me all caught up, espeically since I just had prom, lots of projects, and I've been terribly sick.Time is a wonderful thing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel like we, as humans, take time for granted, and that we don't really realize how fast things go, and that memories are never really movie-perfect, to rewatch over and over again. The more I try to remember experiences that I've been through, it seems like everything is blurry and a bit out of context. I may have said this a long time ago, but that's probably why I take so many pictures and hold onto so many things, is becasue I know I'll never be able to 100% recognize all that has happened. Even if it was one day ago, it will never be as vivid.
Here I ask you all this:
What is one of the greatest and most precious memory that you have, or something that you hold onto that just helps you remember what happened?
It could simply be a shirt, and just that smell brings back a happiness, or sadness.
It could be dried flowers.

You guys have probably noticed I'm on a Pokémon kick XD Reason is that last month, I'd found out about the new episode coming out on Thursday called "迷い道は分かれ道！？ムサシとソーナンス！！"
I've said before that I don't really watch Pokémon anymore and haven't been watching since Battle Frontier. BUT I have been watching the Team Rocket related episodes and have been listening to ロケット団ひみつ帝国 just because I love them and I personally think they're the most interesting characters in the show. Especially Musashi, who has a very developed background that, sadly, hardly anyone knows about.
Anyways, I saw the episode title come out and I was beyond excited and then finally last week the preview cam
Infos about the abandoned locationsI know that a lot of you are curious to get more information about the abandoned places in my photos and I receive a lot of questions about them.Infos about the abandoned locations3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is a reason that I don't give any though. I do love abandoned buildings, I see so much beauty in those places. Unfortunately, many people don't.
I do act very respectful inside those places, but there are too many idiots out there that don't behave like me.
I've seen so much vandalism, theft and other bad things happening to those buildings after they have become popular, that I will do all I can to protect those beauties.
Therefore, I don't give any infos about the location (not even the country) or history about them since every little piece of info makes it easier for people to find it.
I'll gladly help you with any info about all non-decay related shots, but there is no chance I tell anything about the decaying beauties. No exceptions.
Please respect that and don't post any info in the comments, they will be deleted without warning.
Chris Hedges: It is Not a War. It is Murder“The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping rocket fire into Israel. It is not about achieving peace. The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battle field on a largely defenseless civilian population is the final phase in the decades long campaign to ethnically cleanse Palestinians.” ～ Chris HedgesChris Hedges: It is Not a War.
