From Trash to TreasureOver the next two weeks over at projecteducate we're having two whole weeks of Artisan Craft madness!

The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeMore Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item

Hello beautiful deviants,
As I quickly mentioned before, projecteducate will be holding an Artisan Crafts week from August 19th to September 1st.
cakecrumbs and I know that Artisan Crafts is quite broad and we want to reflect its wide spectrum so we are planning to include 14 different crafts articles (one in the AM and one in the PM for 7 days). Neither cakecrumbs nor I are proficient in every single craft so we're looking for your help to educate the community on what you do best! The articles can be in the form of a spotlight on your craft, how to's, tips and tricks, interviews etc. Anything educational, really.
Also, don't be scared, the articles don't need to be super long essays either. The articles can be as short or as long as you want.
So, what do you say? It's a great opportunity to show the world something you are passionate about.

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 recent
My DD GuidelinesIf you're perusing this journal, you've likely got questions about suggesting a Daily Deviation. Brookette and myself are your Artisan Craft CVs, meaning we can feature Artisan Craft deviations only. I can no longer feature Traditional Art / Sculpture. If you want to suggest something from another category, here is a list of the CVs you can approach.More Like This
If you've decided you want to send one my way, here's a few guidelines to help you know what I'm looking for.
How To Suggest a DD
First, make sure the deviant hasn't received a daily deviation in the last 6 months. Go to [username].deviantart.com/dds to see a deviant's DDs.Next, send me a note with the subject "'DD Suggestion". In the note, give me a thumbnail [:thumb######:] for the art you w

Faux FoodIf you browse the culinary art circles, you'll often see comments on skilled artisans' deviations reading, "It's a shame you have to eat that."More Like This
Outside of culinary arts, food deviations attract the opposite: "It looks delicious. It's a shame you can't eat it."
It's an endlessly amusing juxtaposition. We want to preserve the art, but sometimes the inedible version is just so tempting you feel the desire to consume it anyway.
Many deviants use a variety of mediums to portray fun, quirky, and sometimes deliciously realistic food. Here are a few examples from five different mediums used to create more permanent versions of favourite food items.

Devious Journal EntryAs I grew up, I never had any friends, or family that gave a damn. Living with a mother who was never around before my bruises disappeared, and an abusive step-father, I never had any friends because I had to sit away from everybody in school because of my bruises.

Morgan (A Thousand Years Before): Loneliness. Throughout his quest for ultimate power, he never had a friend to lean on for support, so he literally took the world on his shoulders.
Blake: Bi-Polar, and the inability to control his emotions. I was always a…troublesome person. Some people know this from first-hand experience. Blake was too. He always had trouble controlling himself when a person made him angry, and then, during a fight, he'd get reluctant and stop.

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Mid November News: Heart of a WriterAbout the Literature DeviantART community, there has been a stir lately amongst the writers, exploring what – at the very hearts of ourselves – makes us writers. So many varying sources of inspiration speak to all of us differently, but what, I wonder, is it that truly bonds us? I read the beautiful words of the poets that feel like home to me – returning to them over and over, finding a source of joy that I might not know otherwise. I am thankful for the glow of endearing motivation that also helps me discover my own words, to share with others. I take such pride in bringing a sense of beauty that reflects from the personal stories that come from my pen.More Like This
Often, I search for fundamental meanings behind the words that so greatly touch my heart. In the darkness of night, I question the impact of these words. It means a great deal in knowing that I have somehow made a difference by something that I have written – just by simply taking an honest piece of my soul awa
Art Block 101 - The Ultimate Survival GuideFellow deviants struggling with art block: fear no more! - I am here for youMore Like This
Since I have a loooot of experience with this common and scary phenomenon, I've decided I should share the knowledge: in this journal I'll give you my theories about types, causes and all the solutions I know of for art blocks :3 I hope this helps! (I think it can be useful even if you're not currently in a block!)
Alright, art block is a phase absolutely every single artist in the world goes through at some point in their artistic journey, usually many times. It's basically a seemingly random period of time where you seem to have no motivation/inspiration/will to draw, and/or nothing you draw seems to look right.
There are different types of art blocks, the main difference between them being the cause, and thus each type calls for a different approach. I believe the types are:

Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS/STUDENTS...It's amazing how setting goals can make you unhappy.More Like This
For a long time, I've always thought to myself: "I'm not quite as good, but I will be once I've met my goal." Or, " Once I've reached my goal, I'll be happy, I'll be successful." I'm sure that I am not alone in this mode of thinking and as a result we ultimately push our own happiness to the back, unless we accomplish some major milestone.
We place ridiculous stress on ourselves to lose weight, get a promotion...finishing a comic or whatever.
But I think setting goals seem useless without a system or process in place to reach them. I'm learning more that it's important to understand the difference between goals & systems. The goal is the desired end result, the system is the process, or practice that (if committed to) eventually gets you there. Focusing on practice instead of performance allows you to be present, and improve at the same time. Planning progress (Goal) vs. Making progress (System).

Just about the only thing I don't like about is the strong cyan tint, which seems to be more associated with the photo of the painting rather than then painting itself. Overall it's definitely one of the best derivative works I've yet to see based on my photos. I really enjoyed exploring how all the little details differed between the two.
Rpriet1 did not ask for my permission, or inform me of using my photo. A DA gallery moderator just messaged to ask whether I would like the deviation removed, and the DD revoked. I think most artists who've had their work "stolen" would be outraged, but for me the answer was a very unambiguous no. This is a complicated issue, and I think that the vast majority of the readers will disagree with me at this point, so let me explain my position carefully.

1) He knew he would be resurrected after 3 days. Why would you be afraid of dying very much under such circumstances? I wouldn't be.
2) He sacrificed himself to himself so that he could forgive. Why not save a step, and just forgive? There is no reason for an innocent person to suffer - it doesn't make the situation any better. Human sacrifice does not work. If you think it does, well you are a Christian.
3) He knew that he would spend an eternity in heaven after a day of suffering on the cross. The physical pain he felt is not very much compared to someone dying from cancer or hunger - and neither do those people have a choice in the matter. Also, any person in hell endures infinitely more physical suffering than Jesus did. They also aren't glorified for their suffering like a..
