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: CoalRye :iconcoalrye:

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

Well... I guess books that I'm reading and music, veeeery much music.

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

I don't remember how it happened :D I love to draw, I study on design and I wanted to share my thoughts, expressed in colors and lines and get inspiration every day from members.

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

This happened in my childhood, I was 8, I went to art school and since then I did not leave this path.

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

Usually music has a great influence on me, sometimes the story is born in my head and I can not draw it, sometimes I look at someone's art and it helps me with my work. I think my creativity hasn't reached its maximum. I'm constantly trying new techniques, new motion lines... something new! I'm always in a creative search.

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

I would been a chemist. I love chemistry. I guess I would have worked as a teacher of chemistry for 20 years and then started to cook meth :D I just love the chemistry and it's business compatible, in my opinion.

: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 it's Strawberry hearts. It's my first big work in ink. Now of course I have a work better than "Strawberry hearts", but then it was just amazing. I drew it during emotional decadence as a symbol of the loss of something valuable. Besides, I love Stephen King and his "Hearts in Atlantis" and this book has inspired me.

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

Of course! I do not even like some of my old work. Maybe this is strange, as soon I finish the drawing, it ceases to be interesting for me.

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

8) Yes, all the time. If I have something oppressed, I draw.

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

I want to travel, but so far I did not had this chance. I'm only 18, at the beginning of life, so of course everything is ahead, I hope.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Well... I think these words - Never stop! Draw, grow and develop, try to enjoy not only yourself, but others as well!

Literature Feature

:thumb344520630: Love is not an illusionLove is not an illusion.
I've seen it with my own eyes.
It brings people close, to what they can't control.
It looks beautiful, but love has it thorns.
They carry it through every day, in happy remorse.
To the end of time.
It looks beautiful, but what is it.
What makes people do these things.
What brings them so close.
I finaly realised it, when i lost it.
I understood what true love is.
And you better not let it go.
When you see it, you know it's real.
Thorns are strong, but when you break through.
And i know you will do.
You become amazed of what you will do.
Just to keep in touch for a moment or two.
That is what love will do.
It makes you blind, but is that sad?
You love without regrets, and that is who you are.
You just need to carry on.
Forgive and forget, they say.
It is not easy to do.
But then you find that you've done it.
You know the meaning of true love.
The ColdIt's cold outside,
where the snow lies.
The cold bites at our skin,
making us colder within.
The cold causes our faces to go red,
that's what anyone would've said.
The cold causes our eyes to water,
it causes our steps to falter. 
The snowy air makes us lose our breath,
and we gasp for air,
we can not obtain.
We fall in the snow,
let it burn our skin,
with its coldness.
We try to make it back inside,
where we can become warm within,
and then go outside again.

End And Beauty
Red roses,
   Red bloodied shackles,
Orange sunsets,
   Orange vomit,
Yellow sunflowers,
   Yellow oozing puss,
Green waving grass,
   Green lights reflecting off sharpened knifes,
Blue sparkling oceans,
   Blue bruises,
Purple plums,
   Purple scars,
                      The Beautiful
