Edit: It was such a surprise for me when I found out that this simple piece I made as a silly gift for my boyfriend was featured as a DD... Although it's not my best piece, I feel happy for it being the one to get it, cause I think it has such a nice message behind it... It's something worthy of standing for! It's really good to know that more people are receiving this message today! And all these nice comments I've been receiving from people who looked at it and smiled... just can't describe it. Totally made my day!

My Valentine's deviation for 2010 =)

Based on my personal experience ahaha. I often go to my boyfriend's house to wake him up. And I do it by... well... kissing him :blush: just like prince charming does with sleeping beauty. But the one who's doing the sleeping is the prince :rofl:

And without fail, he would wake up every single time. :O
It's quite amusing so it became my habit :XD:

The penguin is a gift I gave him last year. It doesn't exactly look like it though. The real thing is way cuter :love:

Hope you all like it!
And Happy Valentines or Single Awareness Day =)

EDIT: A DD! Thank you sooo muuuuch ;;_____;; Thanks for all the fav's and comments!

This is my traditional-medium entry for :iconkneelingglory:'s 'Not For Sale' Human-Trafficking Awareness project: [link] (I might do another entry, in one of the other categories.
Entrants are supposed to choose a particular aspect of the many-faceted crime of human trafficking, and focus their artwork on it. I chose child trafficking.
It's difficult to find any definitive statistics as to exactly how many children a year are sold or forced into some form of slavery (due to secretiveness involved in such dealings), but most of the numbers I found were between 300,000 and 500,000 a year, and that's just for children being trafficked internationally. Who knows how many more are sold without ever leaving their own countries... :(
It's not only the children that suffer, though: there are thought to be nearly 30 million people trapped in some kind of slavery today. The Atlantic slave trade, which kidnapped and enslaved Africans between the 1500s and 1800s, brought less than 15 million to the New World, total.

A old Illustration done in January of 2008

may 5 or "cinco de mayo" is conmemorative date in Mexico. General Ignacio Zaragoza and the mexican army defeat in combat to the french army in Puebla. So, my salute to mexican people in this day :)... BTW, Pancho Villa is not related to this battle, but... well, u catch the point XD

Feliz 5 de mayo a los amigos mexicanos :) como lo prometido es deuda, aqui esta Pancho Villa.

-------------o------------

José Doroteo Arango Arámbula, better known as Francisco "Pancho" Villa, came from the northern state of Durango. He was one of the leaders of the Mexican Revolution. Villa with his army of Villistas joined the ranks of the Madero movement. He led the Villistas in many battles, such as the attack of Ciudad Juárez in 1911 (which overthrew Porfirio Díaz and gave Madero power), the Battle of Celaya.

In 1911, Victoriano Huerta appointed Villa his chief military commander. During this period Huerta and Villa became rivals. In 1912 when Villa's men seized a horse and Villa decided to keep it for himself, Huerta ordered Villa’s execution for insubordination. Raúl Madero, brother of President Madero, intervened to save Villa's life. Jailed in Mexico City, Villa escaped to the United States. Soon after the assassination of President Madero, Villa returned with a group of companions to fight Huerta. By 1913 the group had become Villa's División del Norte (Northern Division). This army led by Villa had numerous American members. Villa and his army, along with Carranza and Obregón, joined in resistance to the Huerta dictatorship.

Villa and Carranza had different goals. Because Villa wanted to continue the revolution, he became an enemy of Carranza. After Carranza took control in 1914, Villa and other revolutionaries who opposed him met at what was called the Convention of Aguascalientes. The convention deposed Carranza in favor of Eulalio Gutiérrez. In the winter of 1914, Villa and Zapata's troops entered and occupied Mexico City. Villa's treatment of Gutiérrez and the citizenry outraged more moderate elements of the population, who forced Villa from the city in early 1915.

In 1915, Villa took part in two of the most important battles during the revolution, the two engagements in the Battle of Celaya, on April 6–7 and from April 13–15. Obregon defeated Villa in the Battle of Celaya, one of the bloodiest of the revolution. Carranza emerged as the winner of the war and seized power. A short time after, the United States recognized Carranza as president of Mexico. On March 9, 1916, Villa crossed the United States–Mexico border and raided Columbus, New Mexico, in a vengeance attempt against the arms dealer who sold the ammunition used on the Battle of Celaya which was useless for Villa's forces. During this attack, 18 Americans were killed as well as 90 of Villa's men.

Pressured by Public Opinion (mainly driven by Hearst Newspapers) to confront Mexican attacks, US President Wilson sent General John J. Pershing and 10,000 U.S. troops on an unsuccessful pursuit to capture Villa. It was known as the Punitive Expedition. After nearly a year of pursuing Villa, Pershing was called off and given command of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I. The American intervention had been limited to the western sierras of Chihuahua.It was the first time the American Army used airplanes on military operations.

Regardless of the intervention, the loss of the Battle of Celaya meant the rise to power of Carranza and the Sonora generals.

In 1920, Obregón (one of the sonorenses) finally reached an agreement with Villa, who retired from the armed fighting. In 1923 Villa was assassinated by gunfire while traveling in his car in Parral. It is pressumed such assassination was ordered by the sonorenses who feared a suppposed bid for the presidency by Villa, breaching the 1920 agreement.
