Welcome to the first edition of Skin Deep, a feature series that aims to go beyond the Daily Deviations and showcase more fine customization works. ipholio and myself, abhimanyughoshal, have been scouring the Skins & Themes and Icons galleries to bring you some real fancy treats! Check 'em out!
Alysseum Miranda Skin by Febernovo
A little gloss, some wicked colours, and a whole lotta style make this skin a treat to use!
Imagine for Rainlendar v2 by Benijamino
This fabulous Rainlendar theme uses a colour scheme reminescent of heylove's awesome Area04 theme. Put 'em both together for twice the goodness!
Deviant Art for w900 BBT2006 by EnzuDes1gn
If you've got a serious DA fetish, show it off on your phone with this wonderful theme for SE W900s!
MIPOD by Skin-Consortium

Em3lent Styler Toolbar by SteRawlinson
A must for all Styler fans! Big 'pressy' buttons and some neat texture on this one!
Stainless by panoramix-
Here's one of the cleanest icon sets you'll find on deviantART. If you're looking for a smooth set of icons to match that oh-so-sleek desktop, look no further.
HALO Dock Icons by JJ-Ying
This is one amazing set of icons. For all the countless Halo fans out there, let these finely detailed icons take a test run on your desktop. I promise you won't want to change your icons back!
3D Cartoon Icons Pack by deleket
What can I say? deleket is one of deviantART's foremost up and coming iconists. He has already proven himself with his smooth style, and this particular icon set is nothing less than perfect.
iVista PNG's by gakuseisean
The iVista icons are a cross of smooth and classic styles. Whenever I find myself wanting to switch up my desktop icons, somehow I always sway towards these particular icons. So check these out, but be warned, they're pretty addictive!
Grzanka's Icons by voogee
This is a slick little set of nine various icons. Talk about eye candy...I guarantee you guys will love these.
Thanks for checking out this edition of Skin Deep! We hope you enjoyed it. We'd love some feedback, and also suggestions on how to improve this series. If you would like to recommend any deviation from the Skins & Themes or Icons galleries, please note either ipholio or abhimanyughoshal. Till next time!
Becoming a photographer
Wow, it's been nearly two years since I last updated my journal. I haven't been on DA much since then but I'd love to use all the features it makes available to promote my work more. You see, I've quit a few jobs, learned some stuff and now fancy myself a photographer. I specialize in performing arts, travel, street and documentary work. I've been shooting for NH7, Rolling Stone and Conde Nast Traveller. I've been known to bamboozle about in a studio in the past, and even shot some food for an upcoming restaurant, but that's besides the point. So what's all the noise about? Well, I'm going to try and showcase my photography here and also mak
Tales from Shivaji Road
New photos! Hey everyone, I'm happy to report that I've been actively taking pictures recently. My latest collection is again set in one of my favourite Bangalore neighbourhoods, Shivajinagar. It's a predominantly Muslim area, with mosques, restaurants and streets lined with houses big and small. It's also home to the amazing Russell Market, a melting pot of meats, vegetables and seafood from all over the South. There's even a 100-year old gym and movie theatre. Here are some photos from the set: Photos :thumb157334135: :thumb157333949: :thumb157331994: I went .com! That's right, I bought abhimanyughoshal.com! I've currently hosted my DA

Agenda After a quick introduction, we headed into the gallery to check two wonderful exhibits - Signposts of the Times featuring works by various Indian artists, sculptors and photographers, and TV Viewers, a photo exhibit by Olivier Culmann.
