Travel Documents pt.3Thursday, we left for Hong Kong to have our collective visas converted to work visas. Everything necessary for a two-day venture was packed in just my backpack, and I was fortunately able to leave my bulky gear and luggage at the hotel in Shenzhen! But of course, the visa process marks the return of the infamous Crazy Visa Lady! lol so naturally, we were running everywhere.
To make things more interesting,
Since no one had prepared us for needing additional visa pictures, we were ushered to a photo booth in the train station and made to take them there while we were waiting to hop from one train to the next! Never a dull moment with these guys haha
When we arrived in HK…
It was evident that we were staying at the same hotel I mentioned pre

Update Nick Stone Birthday Tribute PLEASE READ!!It took me a few day to let it all sink in but I am ready to talk and to pay my final respects to Nick aka :iconshedboy68: His birthday is August 15th which is next Friday. I want to make a journal and have everyone do an art piece dedicated to Nick with a few sentences of what you remember about him most, some encouraging words he may have said to you or just a simple farewell. I would appreciate it if EVERYONE reading this shares this journal especially in your groups and get the word out. Those who have a lot of followers your help in spreading this would be appreciated. I need to receive the entries by next Thursday as I'm sure it will take me hours to put the journal together. Please submit your entry on THIS journal and as always give proper credit. Also if you have already made a tribute piece, just post it here. Again please spread the word and thanks to everyone who chooses to participate As a community we need to lean on each right now so let's do that.Update Nick Stone Birthday Tribute PLEASE READ!!9 months ago in Personal More Like This

jaani-androphile Received a Daily Deviation on pollen
Since your work got a DD, are you planning to do anything more with it? If so, what?
No, I seldom edit my poetry, unless I ask for, or someone presents a critique of it. Then I will obviously consider the critique, and make changes as I see fit.
Was your DD a self suggestion to one of the Lit CVs? If not, would you ever self suggest? If so, what made you select this piece to suggest over your others?
No I have

SPECIAL MENTIONS FIRST
The people whose Icon appears below deserve special mention because nothing has been too much trouble for them...Notes, questions and emails they have answered them all and always have time for me. They always put up with me, and you all know what I can be like!!!....That's what being friends is all about though and they exemplify the community spirit here at Deviant Art...Thank you my beautiful friends
My deviantART StoryIn lieu of the usual weekly feature thing, I figured I'd do one of these journals, especially since DA has had such a profound effect on my life in general. This is going to be pretty wordy, a bit dark in places and get pretty personal, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat hesitant to be this open about myself and some of the issues I've faced/am facing. I've been considering posting a journal talking about it for a while anyway for reasons I'll delve into later, and this seems like the perfect opportunity. If you're not interested in the story, then by all means just check out the thumbs or skip this one altogether, i promise i won't be offended.My deviantART Story9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Before we get to DA, a little bit of background. I'm from a small city in upstate New York called Binghamton. Once a manufacturing hub with almost 100,000 people, after WWII factories started to shut down as manufacturing relocated overseas, jobs dried up, and the city began to shrink. Currently th

Tell Us Your Best Moment of 2013 Feature!Hi, everyoneTell Us Your Best Moment of 2013 Feature!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I thought for today's feature, we would do something a little special, since we are approaching the end of the year, and will soon be seeing the first anniversary of :iconfeature-it-monday: next month!
I think this would be a great time to have a retrospective look back, on 2013's high-light's, both for the group, and also for you, the members.
We'd love to hear your stories and anecdote's, fun things that have happened; about the biggest things that have overjoyed, surprised, delighted, and awed you, on Deviant Art, this year
For myself, the biggest high-light's of my artistic year, were:
Coming across :iconfeature-it-monday: - joining, and getting to know you all; bringing to the group, the popular Special Guest interview feature's, helping to arrange our very first Winter Contest - eventually stepping into Courtney's founder shoes, and hoping that I make the group as much fun as Courtney did
On a personal level, I celebrated my 1s
Letter Writing ProjectTotal dA Letters Sent To Date: 73Letter Writing Project1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Absolutely, ANYONE and EVERYONE is allowed to sign up for this. We can be strangers and have never talked before, but if you're interested in getting a letter, just send me the info and you'll find one in your letterbox soon!
I've recently decided to start a personal project to help me focus myself, appreciate others, and try to control my bad habits by filling my time with other things. And since I love writing letters and notes, I've decided to send notes and letters to friends throughout the year. I've already got a bit of a list going, but I figured, why should I limit this to just people I know/have in my real life?
SO! If you're interested in receiving a letter or note from me, shoot me a note with the following:
Your Name (or at least a name that the postman will know to deliver)Address (not limited to the US)Anything I may need to know in order to have it arrive

SixWordStories Contest ~ Lots of Prizes!Update: 8 more hours to get your entries in! For those that have already submitted, please double check your entry is accepted!SixWordStories Contest ~ Lots of Prizes!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
It has been a long time since we have had a contest, but we have some awesome prizes to be won and enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Pl

We're all terribly sorry that it had to happen, but that's what happens when founders abandon their groups. And thank you for those of you that are brand new to our group!

Nobody entered the 'Resolutions' contest for January! I'm hoping that will change for February and for that reason, the contest will be starting a few days earlier than the end of the month . The theme for February should be broad enough to give you something to work with... Love!
The contest folder will be open on 28th January 2014 and will close on 26th February 2014 . Be sure to get your submissions in before the closing date! Judging will commence soon after with winners announced at the beginning of next month with the new challenge! We're tightening up on submissions now and your work will be declined if it doesn't follow our submissions rules!

As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends. Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives. And when I ponder those who do,
I immediately think of you. Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have a Happy New Year!
I want to thank you all for this year and look forward to have a new good year along with you all.
A special hug I want to send to my twinbrother :iconrazielmb:who mean the world to me.
I had so many lovely moments to enjoy your lovely art, and my heart smile every time I look at it.

Love you so much my adorable little twinbrother.
