As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: MyLifeThroughTheLens :iconmylifethroughthelens:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

Love - for my friends, my family and all kinds of art. Also i guess is fair to say in not the regular kind of guy i never really cared for cars or sports so yeah that's me :)

:bulletyellow: How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

About 8 years ago i stumbled upon a few really cool photos while looking for new desktop backgrounds but i didn't join back then... about a year and a half ago after a really bad break up i was thinking of how much i wished i had been able to capture all those beautiful moments that would never come back and that's how i got into photography and joined dA after a couple of days. I'm very thankful to this community... i got the chance to share my work and watch amazing artists getting better and better with each deviation.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

I always loved art... ever since i was a litle boy, my dad and my older sister used to draw and i remember thinking of how awesome it would be to create something "beautiful" too.

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

Music inspires me the most... depending on my mood i listen to Deftones, Muse, Radiohead, etc... right now i'm really into Bjork. I think i'm more creative when i feel happy, the ideas just keep on coming when i'm in a good mood.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I don't know but i'm really glad i got into photography when i did... my self-esteem was really low and i think i would have chosen a bad way to deal with my problems but i didn't and i never will because now i feel like there's so much to see out there and i'm happy to be where i am.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

I think that would be She Loves me Not, it's very personal and i think i was able to capture how i felt during that period of time.

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

I do, i'm still pretty new to photography and there are a lot of people that have been doing this for years, so yes, sometimes i feel intimidated by that... but thanks to all the positive feedback i got since i joined dA i feel much better about what i do.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

Yes it helped me out a lot after my last relationship ended; i was very depressed and there were so many emotions i wanted to release but i just couldn't find a way to do it, until one day i just woke up and decided to get a camera (yeah it was very random) and that is one of the best decisions i've ever made in my life.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

Travel more... i wish i was able to see so many places.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Art is the best remedy to deal with problems... just let those feelings out, it will help.

Literature Feature

My Best FriendA blanket of sorrow,
my tears paint the ground
because for you there is no tomorrow,
my precious hound.
You imprinted my heart
in ways I can't even speak.
You were always there from the start
even when you were sick and weak.
You kept your tail flapping
and stayed reliable.
You're like a present without the wrapping,
when I near you a smile was undeniable.
All the memories we made,
I'll keep locked in my head.
These memories will never be jade
and with that said,
All good things must end
and I accept the fact your gone.
I'll miss you my best friend,
and although it's hard, I'll move on.
He's The UnknownI'm looking in the mirror
And what do I see?
A boy that looks just like me
But this can't be me
He has a small smile on his lips
My lips forms a frown
His eyes sparkle
Mine are dull
His face is relaxed
Mine is full of anger
His hands are free
mine are tied
This boy in the mirror
Is my small mask
The boy I show
When I'm around
This isn't me
I'm not who you think
This boy in the mirror
He is the unknown
The Scars To Prove ItOne year
Its been one year
Since I found you
One year
Its been one year
Since you called me
One year
Of blood
And tears
One year
You've been there
A stable friend
One year
It seems longer
But yet short
One year
Of scars
Row for row
One year
Its only been
A short time
One year
Thats how long
Yet only a portion
One year
Ive been
A cutter
And Ive got the scars to prove it.
The AmateurI can't write poetry;
I can never do the rhyme,
My inspiration eludes me
And the words sound out of time.
I can't write novels;
My patience is too thin,
And halfway through the story
I forget how I begin.
I can't write essays;
Analysis is a bore,
And when I'm meant to do one
I stare blankly out the door.
I can't write lyrics;
My sense of beat is nil,
Although I play guitar well
The rhythm evades me still.
I can't write prose;
I'm afraid it must be said,
So what do I do?
I'm a drawer instead!
