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: BenHeine :iconbenheine:

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

I'm a 28 y/o graphic artist based in Brussels, Belgium. I consider myself as a multidisciplinary artist as I always take different artistic directions (photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, music, animation...).

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

Well I became a member some 5 years ago, just after I discovered the photos of Gilad Benari, a senior deviantART member. I was already a Flickr user and I quickly became addicted to deviantART as well.

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

I was initially passionate about drawing. I started drawing on a daily basis at around 11 y/o. Then I discovered painting and sculpture. It's only during my degree in Journalism that I started taking photos. And I'm now more and more interested by music.

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

My creativity and motivation are always at their maximum, it's just the events of life that prevent me from spending 100% of my time on my projects (family life, administrative work...), I guess everybody has to deal with this... I'm mainly inspired by nature and people.

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

Music for sure. And I'm still young enough to take a new path if needed, which is cool.

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

It's Pencil Vs Camera - 57 with the model Caroline Madison. There is a personal story behind each of my deviation, but that one in particular is even more special. It was almost an improvised shooting (in London), the drawing on the paper is related to Caroline's life. The drawing is meaningful and meaningless at the same time which I think gives it a timeless and universal touch.

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

It's a bit scary to realize that once a photo or a drawing is published, you completely lose control of it. It's just the way it works with the Internet.

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

Yes, I'm a bit anxious and I have too much energy, working on my artistic projects helps me to canalize this energy and to reduce my personal fears.

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


:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Art is something precious. It feeds everybody's soul. Keep going, keep creating, soon or later, it will be your time. :facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Ben-Hei…

Literature Feature

:thumb307551882: TinmanMy skull is
and my brain is like a clockwork;
but there's something in the gears
and they are sticking.
I could
for some sort of repair but
my short-circuit voice-box
is out of date
and my creator-God is gone.
If only I could trade
these burnt out eyes for real ones,
and get myself some sort of heart
that wouldn't tick.
:thumb307618899::thumb307540978: April FoolsSteve is a nice guy. Actually Steve is a really nice guy, too nice for this day and age. And he believes that people are just as nice and noble and honest as he is. That's why he always gets prank'd on April Fools.
Tony is the exact opposite of Steve, in fact, Tony takes advantage of people like Steve. So in that morning after some weird blue sticky substance exploded right in Steve's face when he opened the freezer, Tony promised that was the last prank of the day. It wasn't. Not that he had anything planned, but he would think of something.
Of course, Steve didn't know he was lying, because Steve always believed people and that was a serious problem. Tony was sitting on his couch, looking at some projects on his laptop, Steve was sitting next to him reading a book. The projects were giving Tony a headache, because they weren't designed by him and they were so boring, so he stood up and walked to the mini bar on the corner of the living room.
"Do you want a drink?" Tony
