“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resources within the arts themselves, for study, for sheer per

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

You Are The Future

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations

Wonderful game! Yes, we are sad, that our goal was not accepted
Yes..Now all scream that there was offside. But if there was offside, why the flag was not raised and there was any signal of side-raferee about offside? All words about offside is looked as justification of raferee now..
We are sad, that we have left EURO2012.. Because if the goal was accepted,we could have the chance thanks to the Sweden.
We laugh, that the second time in the History Sweden gave us the chance to be saved (this time in the football), and we've lost it again XD
But We are happy, that we were not ashamed and showed good level!
Thank you, our wonderful team. All Ukraine is proud that your last match was the best!

K why the fuck would you complain about this?I see so many people complain that people" "fav and run" and not comment, or fav their whole gallery and not +watch them.K why the fuck would you complain about this? in Personal More Like This
First of all people aren't obliged in any way to favorite, comment, or watch you. It's their own free choice. The world doesn't revolve around you and your gallery. Secondly, some people don't have time to comment, and even if they do have the time who are you to say that not doing what you want them to do is an atrocity?
Don't expect things to be fucking handed to you on a silver platter. Time is precious especially when someone uses it on you. When someone comments, favs, or even glances at your work they are giving you their time, which is really fucking valuable.
I digress, I used to be irritated when something got lots of favorites and not a whole lot of comments, but I got over it. Instead commenting more and making new friends really helped me get advice. It was a smart thing to do.
In short, it's like walking into a store and the owner
I wish I had gone to the counselor earlierI just did today and talked about how my future looks. She said my grades were the shit and I'm taking good courses, and that dropping orchestra for art won't hurt me at all. She made me feel good about myself, and I totally needed that. I almost cried but she probably couldn't detect it. (I'm very good at hiding that I'm on the edge of tears so when I suddenly start crying out of the nowhere the other person is usually surprised and distressed to see that.)I wish I had gone to the counselor earlier in Personal More Like This
People find me cold and very critical. It's very hard for them to think that I am able to cry just from silence, but it happens. It means a lot to me when someone pats me on the back and tells me I've been doing a good job for all these years after all these years someone else has been telling me otherwise.
Don't keep your feelings inside guys. There's nothing wrong with calling a hotline or going to an adult at the school you trust. It doesn't make you weak, or pathetic. It makes you stronger for telling the truth.

this place pisses me off more and moreEvery time I log in..seriously. I am not going to lie this is a good place to showcase your art only because of the PEOPLE, not the site itself. It's a huge flaw in every business and it may not exactly be a bad thing for them, but it's still a flaw in my eyes. I see this happening a lot when online businesses harbor community as the kernel of its purpose. Without us they are nothing. Deviantart has so much potential but lacks the means to do it. There's other services out there. Not saying it's the worst here though. This isn't one of those journals that try to be overly negative and angsty, but try to point things out and hopefully encourage your own thoughts into it.this place pisses me off more and more in Personal More Like This
For example about dependent on community rather then the product itself, lets take a look at a game I play; Runes of magic. It is a popular "free to play" mmo.
