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: namenotrequired :iconnamenotrequired:

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

I like to think I'm nice and polite and thoughtful :) Which, like every possible personality trait has its good and its bad sides. But of course I'm not the first person with those traits ever... I guess the only thing that can really define me is my DNA :paranoid:

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

Through my high school friends :) I loved the site instantly, but it took about a year for me to find out about clubs (the groups system didn't exist yet) and through that, more and more of the community. I now love the community even more than the site itself :love: though I still write and play, I consider myself more of a community member than an artist now.

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

It was as a teenager that I discovered my love for music, which is where my interest in other, related arts (lyrics, and through that, other poetry) comes from too :D

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

I have my ups and downs when it comes to creating art - there's periods where I create more and periods I create less. I find that the more time I put aside to specifically focus on writing, the more ideas I get :)

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

If I didn't have dA and art...I have no idea. :noes: I'd have missed out on a lot of great things that made me grow as a person. I'd be a different person in many aspects.

: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 probably this song: Truth, it just says a lot about who I am and how I think, or at least used to think around that time, but a lot of that holds true still.

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

Not really to be honest! Not that I think I'm the best artist ever - I just don't aspire to be the best. :D

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

It definitely helped me during my teenages to keep my spirits lifted :) These days my personality is strong enough to not really need it that badly, though it is still very welcome at certain moments. :D But you know what teenagers are like - they can need such things a little more. :P

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

I actually made it a point to actually do these things. The number 1 thing used to be to visit VelCake, but I did that earlier this year. :D Hope to do so again though!
Another thing is organising a devmeet, which I'm doing - it's on the 1st of July :D

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Keep it up! :hug: Artists are awesome people. Keep practicing, and remember, if you ever get truly stuck dA has a goldmine of tutorials, guides and fellow artists who love to help you get through this.

Literature Feature

Inner ConflictShe thinks about him too much.
She is not being healthy.
She is not helping her relationship.
In fact the relationship suffers.
That's what she must do.
She must stop the images of this boy
Coming into her head.
So eloquent in speech and language.
He is not her boy.
Her boy is good at maths.
This boy is good at English.
He is not like her boy.
And he can cast spells.
He can combine words that work,
Words that she wants to hear.
Her boy does not do well with his words.
He tries to help her with her maths.
But he is not good at helping with maths.
She doesn't want help from her boy.
With her boy she must be patient.
And she doesn't want to be patient.
Her patience does not last very long.
It is running out with her boy.
She must sleep.
She is tired.
And still this boy haunts her.
:thumb332986769: I ain't CinderellaI'm on my way towards the new day
Repeating all that comes along the way
Hoping, maybe someday this endless loop
Would somehow take a step and starts to move
Seeing me that I want to change a thing
You stopped and gave an invisible string
As a response, I carelessly grabbed it
By magic, I fell in love on that one greet
With you, unknown insufficient days passed
Now spending each day not in front of the glass
But believing that you’re giving it back
Despite of this fast turning of clock
I left my slipper on that tiring night
Hoping that you will come and be my knight
But there isn't such as lovely dream
Just as you left my life in halted scream
"I ain't Cinderella," is what I said
Just to mend the harsh truth of the end
Though you’re a false individual to hate
Still glad to love someone who changed my state

TestingWon't do it,           Within a dream the mind is free,
Can't do it,           But never more trapped,
Should do it,          Since one can not escape oneself.
But still won't.       There is no help coming,
Around the feeling,   Nothing to save you from it,
Something new,        No way to avoid it,
Something lost,       It comes and it does not fear,
And something felt,   Like you do, whimpering,
And something not.    Afraid of inevitability.
Afraid and ScaredI have this picture on my head
How beautiful you are..
I really hope you understand
I didn't mean to leave you.
I guess I was just afraid
I guess I was just scared..
Love was a peaceful dream
I really hope you understand..
I remember the day we first met
I was running, you were waiting there
Then the time just stopped, like it was giving us a chance
And our eyes meet for one second
That I didn't want to end..
So, I really hope you understand
That I didn't meant to leave you..
Maybe I was just too scared
Maybe I was just too afraid.. To love you..
Son of NarcissusSon of Narcissus
I fell in love with you
Not being like him
Though bad habits
You have a few
Green comforts your brain
The grey cigarette smoke
Between your fingers
Appears the oak
The smell lingers
Watery eyes
Sandman's sand
Goes to waste
Reality tastes bland
Dark memories erased
