I created an account on Deviant Art because I love networking with fantastically talented individuals, and I believe that art is a very important part of our lives. Whether it's used as a means to express ourselves, be an outlet for what's going on in our brains, or simply a talent to share with the world - each person on here is uniquely talented.

I run a website called Cislunar, and it's an independent non-profit website that's a designated platform for artists, writers and musicians. It's my pet project, but I created it because I want to help promote people's life's work, and spread their message across the globe.

We have around 50 contributors currently, but I am always searching for more people to add to our cooperative.

If you write, paint, draw, photograph, make films, make music, basically create ANYTHING, send me a message! I'd love to see if you'd be a good fit for the cooperative, and work with you.

You can follow us on social media!

We're working on an original story for Cislunar called 'To Paint A World,' and it's written by C.L. Farinha. You can check it out here:…

Hey Everyone,

I don't update my DA often, although it seems like I'm on here every other day, so I thought I would just post a quick journal update on the site, for anyone that is curious! (And from here on out, I'll try to be more meticulous with my posting)

Things are progressing smoothly with Cislunar, and I'm excited to see that we have been growing through our social network.

Social Media Growth

We now have:

+79 followers on Instagram
+965 likes on Facebook
+36 followers on Twitter <-- hey, it used to be 5 last time I checked, so I'll take it!

We have also had over 4,000 page views on the site alone from our launch on August 8th, 2018 to today! This has averaged to over 800 unique IP addresses visiting the website and browsing the awesome projects that are there, and they're joining us from all around the globe!

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to Cislunar thus far and helped us to grow - I hope that I can continue to promote your work in a fun, energetic and engaging way that helps grow your audience for months and years to come!

Other Updates

To Paint A World
C.L. Farinha's original story 'To Paint A World' is now live on Cislunar, and you can check it out here. She is a brilliantly talented author who joins us from South Africa and has offered to write a story that is unique and original to Cislunar. We have been releasing chapters every Wednesday (writer's wednesday!) and will continue to do so through the story's duration. Feel free to check out some of her other work on Wattpad as well, her stories are worth the read!

Synopsis of To Paint A World:

Creating a new, colourful world is never easy when the world around you is all in black and white, but Ellie has a mission. She will do almost anything for the people she loves, and creating a world filled with colour is on the top of her list even if it seems to be the impossible she is trying to accomplish.

As Ellie finds a way to create the new world, she is faced with her inner demons that need to be defeated and a sinister villain, Ellena who wears her face. With the help of her best friend she can paint the world with colour, but would that mean losing who she is in the process?

To Paint A World is a complex story filled with questions about what to do when your colourful life falls into a depressing pit of sorrow and grey. As Ellie works through her despair and grief and ultimately finds hope in the most unlikely of places, the reader will do so as well. This is the type of story that will make you feel chills and cry with a character, whilst rooting for her unlikely return from the darkness threatening to swallow her alive.

C.L. Farinha is doing an amazing job at capturing the depth of emotion needed for a tale this deep, while at the same time staying light-hearted enough to keep it within the realm of fantasy. 

Halloween Art Contest Update
The results are in for the Halloween Art Contest, and we are excited to announce our five featured artists!

First Place: sgt-idiot 
Second Place: guodaaiko 
Third Place: olivierarts 
Editor's Pick #1: Jan Spicka (I can't tag you, I'm so sorry!)
Editor's Pick #2: JoeEyeMonster  

Thank you to all of our talented friends who submitted art to the contest! We changed up the rules and instead of the winners being featured in a Contest Album on our site, we are extending the Contest Album to everyone who contributed, and are offering a solo gallery for the winners that were chosen! So keep an eye out for more updates on this in the future. 


I believe that as of right now, that all for updates. Knowing me, there are probably like 300 things I forgot to mention, but I will make sure to post more on this at a later time. You can follow Cislunar on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram, and don't forget that we're always looking for submissions, so feel free to reach out and let me know if you'd want to be considered for a gallery on Cislunar! (I'm not always the quickest to respond to DA messages, but if you email me at, I tend to be a little quicker)

I hope everything is going well in your world, and I hope you're still chasing your dreams. <3

All the best,

  • Listening to: Whatever terrible station they put on at my work
  • Reading: Lolita
  • Drinking: Coffee, and lots of it
