rad trad interviews: KanchanMahon
Welcome to the first ever article in my new rad trad interviews series! Party
Rad trad interviews is a series in which I interview prominent traditional artists who showcase their own unique style, are active in the traditional art community, and who I think we all should get to know! To start us off, I had the chance to sit down with the wonderful KanchanMahon! She is a collage and assemblage artist whose style is all her own. Let us begin to find out more!
:iconbrennennn: To begin, could you share a bit about yourself and your artistic journey to today?
:iconKanchanMahon: I have always been creative, and channeled that into crafts at first. As a child I wanted to learn painting, but got caught up in school and eventually became a doctor. I am working by myself in private practice and my wonderful husband is my office manager.
My artistic journey could be said to have begun when I bro

I'll rewrite us again. We are nothing
but an idea of the issue and its
resolution, the bum sleeping in the back
of a truck or your quantum physics class,
always borrowing notes but acing
those tests, drawing a crowd with nothing
but an idea and a voice to speak it,
isn't it charming to be alive?
Isn't the world so beautiful through
the right fish-eye lens?

How To Raise A Borderline
Don’t recognize your child’s needs,
or at the very least see them as
secondary to your own.
Ignore your child’s tears;
tell them to buck up.
Better yet,
tell them if they don’t stop crying
you’ll give them something to cry about.
That outta teach ’em.
Weigh them down with adult demands.
Expect them to cook dinner
at nine years old
because you’ll be home late.
Force them to grow up too fast,
or don’t allow them to grow up at all
because in a child’s dependent role
is where you can control them.
Don’t be consistent,
with anything.
Change your values like you change your sex partners.
Swear off drinking one day only to get a DUI the next.
And when you discipline
do so arbitrarily and explosively;
base it on your feelings rather than your child’s actions.
When they spill their drink on the floor
and look to you for a reaction,
don’t tell them, “It’s alright, honey, it was just an accident.”

Laugh up your masochism, bolted wood:
after the ethereal-nearly-
chalk has stopped being
a vacuum of the day,
and the brain of the panicked

page-ripper
stops scarring your face
you´ll have a new souvenir
besides the replicae
of the unstudied maths and chemistries
something new to chew on
-like a bored pencil
on the cherry-lipped gloss-
while you discover
this generation of guests
has a love for
the science of social media.

Miner's Carol
In Time's brooding dark, plucky boys
Chuckle—Law! there's Mama Hen's noise:
Our kind's joys, flames out of bounds
Just always worried her— Still do.
Mama, look, I'm promising you
We'll get through, with sin-stained hands.
We work, and you bet we're at play
After hours, in bars, the day
Looks away from black faces
Grimed with the minedust – go order beers,
Watch sunlight's children spot their fears
In us, clear as God has graces.
But if Adam tilled thistled ground
Then he's one of us, by the sound
Of things. Bend your mind to it,
You'll see we take what he did deep,
All Eden's forests lie asleep
In Earth's keeping, count on that.
We wake them to build you a fire
And if we neglect half your prayer,
Does Christ suffer? No, brother
We of the shadows, we swing the sun
Through strong hands, fix the crescent moon
Fast to our picks, sing louder!
Louder for all our fright! For each
Pain that blind heart's eyes fail to catch!
Ah! We clutch the morning star
By hope, and sing a h

we are reckless just for fun
last night i'd seen you burned out
for the last time, but the sheets
were fire on bare skin. you came
inside the night,
grinding the universe to sudden
simplicity.
this dream wavers when i'm awake.
i can't bear to write of
how hollow we were when you
actually gave a damn, but
it is cool from here.
so let me count the ways you
drove me mad;
these times are wild and iridescent
and ruthless all at once.
take me, mercy, just for a while
and find new roads to the hills.
this yellow wallpaper, like me, is peeling.
but i am immortal, like tar usurping
the streams near the midsummer field.
i find that your limbs are pale
inside the light,
and you grip and groan to sweet nothings
and the pretense of being clean.
words don't exist when i'm asleep.
there's comfort to be found in shared
vertigo, and the irony of the moon
in sunrise. for months, we played
that game, and for months my
ribs were sore.
these sheets are tangled with my reckless
screams,
but i am adrift, alone, in a sea of serendipity.

Literature
why nobody brags about being a poet
poets and skeptics tolerate each other
because of simple convolutions.
poets develop insomnia and will spout off
such pretty words, but they cannot
give reasons for why the night’s tendencies
to be reliably inconsistent in susurrus murmurs
make them disconsolate. see, poets know when
things go wrong—a steady thump-thump heartbeat
slip-up that creates nooses in which,
in an effort to avoid becoming insipid,
poets go pursing for pretty words (sorry,
pulchritudinous etymons) that will remind everyone
of the fallacious fabrications where they are
the ones who are better. poets act as the contingent
constituent between psychosis and psychological
investigations that try to explain why
all of humanity suffers from mild superiority complexes.
(of course, poets don’t think they are good people.
they panic when they lose count of the stars
and get triggered perpetually by
such absurdly austere things—be mindful in the
vicinity of poets;

Hey there! :D
Thank you to everyone who checks out these rad trad features, they seem to be doing fairly decently, and it means a lot that you like what I'm featuring! It's tons of fun to find these pieces of art and share them here, so really, thank you. (:
Yesterday I moved closer to campus and I start my new classes in a few days. I'm beyond excited! I signed up for a Japanese language course which I'm most nervous-excited for. I've been studying Japanese on Duolingo and hopefully I can master the basics. But, even with classes starting I should still have plenty of time for DA. I actually have a contest idea brewing, so stay tuned for that. :plotting:

rad trad: july 28 + life stuff update!
It's been a while since I've posted a personal life update here... like maybe a few years! Even when I was a CV, I didn't talk about myself much. Honestly, I'm like that in my everyday life as well, so opening up is not easy. :P
But for the last year I've been at my university studying Computer Science and it's been one of the best experiences of my life. It's allowed me to get over one of the worst depressions of my life, which is one of the reasons that led to me stepping down as literature CV last May. Lots of good things have happened since then, including rekindling old friendships and meeting lots of new friends along the way. Academia is challenging and rewarding, and helps me to keep my spirits up. I start classes again in a couple weeks and I couldn't be more excited!
Oh, and I've been trying to take care of my health a lot better and have been going to the gym almost daily! Counting calories, too, but that's boring. So far I've lost about 23 poun

Hi, my name is Carlos. I have been on DA for nearly 11 years and most of which I have managed to keep myself hidden or easily forgotten. The things people do remember me for are usually relating to reptiles, pizza, knives, alcohol, Rock Paper Scissors or candy.
As a CV I am a Chat and Forums moderator, so I act as the Boogey man who pops out of no where and deals with the always lovely chatters and forumers. Most of my time is spent yelling at my friends here on DA, helping people with ch
Meet Your CV: TanyaSimoneSimpson (Photography)Community Week
I was fortunate enough to have an interview with TanyaSimpson, the returning Community Volunteer who this time around oversees General Photography.  Please sit back, pour yourself a cup of tea (or wine, if you're like me), and meet Tanya.
:iconbrennenxr: Tanya, thank you for participating! Please take this space to introduce yourself, and to discuss what you do around DA and your role as a CV.
:iconrockstarvanity: I've been on DA since 2005, which feels like an incredibly long time now that I think about it. I've been a CV with the Community Relations team before, for Horror & Macabre Photography and Darkroom Photography (not at the same time!) and I'm currently one of the CVs for General Photography, along with the lovely Mrs-Durden and arbitrarynamechange. My mission is to support and encourage artists and share amazing photographic creations with as many people as possible. I do this through Daily Deviation features, journal features and inv
Meet Your CV: TsaoShin (Fan Art)On behalf of DDSuggestionDrive, I had the opportunity to interview one of the more prolific artists active on DA.  His artwork has garnered millions of views and has been shared countless times across the internet.  It is with great honor that I present Eric Proctor, otherwise known as TsaoShin!  He proudly represents the Fan Art gallery as a Community Volunteer.  Read on to meet Eric.

:icontsaoshin: Hey there, I’m Eric but probably better known as TsaoShin.  I’ve been a member of DeviantArt for about 11 years.  I’m a digital painter who loves fandom, fun, fantasy, and cute themes so you’ll find that my gallery is pretty much just that.  I firmly believe in artists helping artists so I focus on community interaction, whether it be comments, answering questions and notes, providing t
Meet Your CV: LiliWrites (Literature)In this first installment of the Meet Your CV series I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with LiliWrites, the fearless word warrior who carefully oversees the entirety of the Literature gallery.  Please join me (with your cup of tea in hand, of course) in meeting Lili.
:iconbrennenxr: Please take this space to introduce yourself, and to discuss what you do around DA and your role as a CV.
:iconliliwrites: Hello! :wave: My name is Lili. I'm a literature community volunteer alongside HugQueen and TheMaidenInBlack. I've been on DA for about ten years, starting with a different account. My day job is a cashier at a grocery store, though I've done lots of other things including bartending and working in a call center. Loved the first, came to hate the second.
My role as a CV is basically to be your go-to gal for all things lit related. Need a good group to get involved in, I'll recommend it! Want a comment or critique, I'll do my best to provide it
Meet Your CV: Tiganusi (Photography)This week, I had the opportunity to interview arbitrarynamechange, connoisseur of floral arrangements and all things photography.  He is a long time deviant who has dedicated a lot of his free time to helping the photography community grow and succeed.

I'm Mark, I've been around the site for well over a decade now and I'm known as a photographer and poet on here. In meatspace I'm about 6000 things that include being a photographer and poet at times; it gets busy, so if I vanish for half a week or don't get to your notes right away, that's why.
On DA I'm involved in the administration of projecteducate, seniormentors and CRLiterature, and on the CR team I'm one of the three general photography CVs along with TanyaSimpson and Mrs-Durden. I'm th
Meet Your CV: Talty (Artisan Crafts)This week I had the opportunity to interview Talty, fierce Mexican scientist and renowned cat lady.  She is a long time supporter of the Artisan Crafts community who has ensured her high level of consistent participation keeps the heart of AC pumping.

Hello everyone! I'm Talty, your friendly Artisan Crafts CV. :) Most of what I do involves browsing the AC gallery and marveling at all the things I see! Honestly, the AC community is incredibly talented and varied, we see so many things I never imagined: dainty jewelry, fused glass furniture, photo-realistic duct tape art paintings, handmade ball-jointed dolls, hardcore functional clocks, impossibly tiny sculptures... crafters never cease to amaze me! I plan features, interviews and conte
Meet Your CV: Cassy-Blue (Stock/Resources)This week, I had the opportunity to interview Cassy-Blue, bug enthusiast and resource co-queen.  Taking one poke at her profile will prove her love for DA and all things S&R.  Read on to find out more about Erin, our proud Stock & Resources Community Volunteer. :la:

:iconcassy-blue:
Hi :wave: I'm Erin and I'm one of the Stock and Resources community volunteers. A lot of what I do on DeviantART is look at art, especially the stock gallery.  Stock has pretty much everything under the sun from reference images to sewing patterns. I spend a good amount of time looking for things to feature as daily deviations--resources that I think are super helpful or super cool for the community to see. I also help with planning contests, make features so stock artists get love :love:, and try to disseminate information through the community in our monthly ne
Meet Your CV: Hosagu (Street Photography)Welcome to the latest Meet Your CV interview!  I think it's best if I allow those closest to my next interviewee to introduce him.  Here are some very genuine quotes from the community:
"Goats."Yuukon
"Our dear syntax-ically challenged Street Photography volunteer is a force to be reckoned with. His loud exclamations and threats to nuke the world are second only to his passion for volunteering at DeviantArt and African goats. His time spent on a remote island, breathing in the fumes of mining dust, has loosened his mind... Allowing him the creative liberty to make sexual innuendo in every utterance he makes without actually offending anyone (or at least we think he hasn't offended anyone). Instead, he uses his enthusiasm and wish-it-would-end-ffs energy to bring the Street Photography community together to join forces as the Street Avengers."JenFruzz
"Houman is the most affectionate person I have ever spoken to especially when you don't want him anywhere near

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
When asked, what is the most ironic user name you have seen on this site, one name jumps to mind for a lot of people. And that would be `lazybutt Seemingly everywhere and anywhere all at once giving critiques, offering advice and helping newcomers is all in a days work for him.
And then besides that he is always full of great suggestions for the site itself, approaching the admins here with well thought out ideas, and many a recommendation for Daily Deviations or just great artists for us to shine some light on.
And if allllllll of that were not enough then there is the =DailyDeviants project that he has been behind since 2005 as well. So yes, `lazybutt is quite the opposite of his namesake and we couldn't be happier about that.
