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: DistortedSmile :icondistortedsmile:

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

I suppose it varies day by day. I'm defined by the people I know and the things I do. I love my art, I love my partner, I love my music, I love my friend. All these factors define me.

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

I found out through a friend in college, about 8 years ago now I think. I loved the idea of a community to share and view art. It drew me in.

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

I've always loved art, but I think I began to focus on photography in my first year of uni. I lived in a large shared communal Halls, with many other interesting people. They shaped the artist I am today for sure.

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

I always found music very inspiring. Brain storming with a drink seems to get me going to, although I'm not sure how much I should promote that ;)

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

I'm not sure, I like gaming – maybe I would be more of a nerd than I am now :pc:

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

It tends to vary depending on my mood but I have two that certainly hold a special place in my heart. I Want You to know Who I Am is of my boyfriend and I and It's a Lie was taken with the first model that I didn't know as a friend – in essence my first successful 'pro shoot'

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

I used to get nervous if people at work asked about it, as it was predominately glamour and fetish. But now I don't care at all, I do it for me and it makes me happy.

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

It gave me something to focus on when I was feeling dark. I can be in my own little zone when I am creating. It's safe in that bubble.

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

Make my art into my profession. But maybe there is chance yet :)

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Live, love and be happy. And capture it all in whatever you wish to create!

Literature Feature

No one wants a stupid personDo you know how it feels to be played?
Human emotions flickering on and off
like that broken light bulb, clinging on
to you when you radiate intelligence,
and mistreating you when you're stupid.
First step: the monsters unleash their
true colours, calloused claws cutting
a bloodied mark of my heart, the drips
of dark red. They ridicule you, without
any guilt or thought for how you feel…
Second step: then they transform into
feeble and fictitious felines. They strut
and attempt to capture you into their
idiotic game.  They purr and plead for
your help, ever so plastic-like.
Third step: you make a mistake and
help their ''apparent'' sorry selves.
Then they take that help, unleash their
vicious claws for the true monsters that
they are and rip that help to shreds,
leaving you broken…
and soon enough dead.
:thumb312271897: Escapism (poem)It's at 2:05 AM
It's at DAWN and DUSK
It's kissing her dreams like a sweet lover;
it's embracing her heart like the touch of passion;
it's intriguing all her senses like the perfect night.
She can't fight,
or turn from its drawing glance.
The girl's twinkling eyes of satisfaction,
the ocean blues and the mountain greens;
it's the escapism she can't afford to have or lose.
So she falls.
into her dreams and her pleasing desires.
She packs the old backpack from third grade,
she beams at the sight of her road map,
her keys jingle in her pockets like a Siren's song.
But then something,
dark and deep,
something painful,
trapped beneath her heart and her dreams,
a weight of agony;
that falls harder.
And is FALLS
hard and fast.

My Wife the Space MonsterI brutally murdered my wife on Main Street in broad daylight with a 12-gauge shotgun.
And frankly, I don't see what all the fuss is about.
Of course, I very much doubt I'll be acquitted on that sort of introduction in my upcoming trial, which will most likely result in my execution given the state I live in. It seems unlikely that any defense I offer will be useful in preserving my existence, though with a little bit of luck I may be able to prolong my time on death row for a decade or more, like most wife-killers out there have before. But with what I'm about to tell the world, I hope that at least the people off the jury will understand and pardon me in their minds.
At the very least, a few of you readers will be entertained.
It all started last summer, on a particularly hot day at the tail end of July, when my wife Victoria, twin sons Humbert and Jeffrey, and little daughter Katy had all gone out for ice cream cones and were on our way home. Up until this point, our marri
Creative RemembrancesI finger painted my walls last night
In scrimshaw patterns of red
it reminded me of you
and the blood crusted black upon my walls
I etched patterns in my skin last night
Concentric simulations of pain
it reminded me of you
and just like before you left a permanent stain
I built a house of hearts last night
Just to blow it down
it reminded me of you again
and the tears dried before they fell
