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: swallowtt :iconswallowtt:

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

I guess I'm a person with a wild imagination. It is hard to tame me once I get started, and I tend to go on until that piece of idea is conveyed through my art.

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

I don't remember really. I think I was searching for something online and came across it by chance. It's amazing to see the wide range of creativity and the large amount of artistic talents all in one place. It's a blast sharing my work with others who are also passionate as well as committed about their creations.

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

I've loved art ever since I was a kid no matter what form it came in... drawing, painting, photography, writing or crafts. It's a great outlet for my uncontrollable imagination.

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

The world is my inspiration. Everything and everyone I come across is able to inspire me to create. I just need to open my eyes and pay attention to my surroundings. I don't know when it's at its maximum; but once a thought is present, I'll work on it until I'm pleased with the results.

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

Become a writer. Then again, I write on a regular basis.

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

I would have to say, Xiahzart (modeled after a Korean singer, Xiah aka Kim Junsu for his 'Mozart' musical), which was my first successful doll after officially learning how to make amigurumi crochets for about a month. Reading patterns was a total nightmare back then. That was the main reason why I decided to design my own creations through trial and error. I don't mind making things from other people's patterns but trying to understand them could be quite a struggle sometimes. Anyways, it is much more satisfying being able to create things from my own imagination.

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

Yes, of course. I'm rather hard on myself when it comes to my work. I spot flaws where others don't and they would become an eyesore unless I fix them. I wouldn't say I'm a perfectionist, but I'm indeed picky.

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

Art is my escape from stress and my vacation to happiness.

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

Have an art exhibition for my dolls/creations.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Live, love and create.

Literature Feature

:thumb362845862: Never let me go...Never let me go...
I'm scared to fall in the world of pain
Me, that I didn't even taste the pain
since I am with you.
Did you see how everyone left me?
And with much love you took me in your embrace
The familiar warmth between us
I'm not sure if you like it as I do.
But you were the one who stayed.
And now, what are you doing now?
Taking your things, going far away.
As much as I want to reach you, I'd feel the same pain.
And I stayed here.
My surroundings are silent
as my mind, I don't dare to talk.
I don't dare to say your name.
Because I thought so badly...
What will I do when you'll be far away?
People are ready to eat me out of this word
because being in love is the most dangerous pain.
...that you loved me as I do.
But Gosh, I was wrong.
You left me behind like you left this parallel universe
A forgotten thing, that's what I am.
Never let me go...
Did you see how everyone left me?
But you were the one who stayed.
And I stayed here.

Inner-StruggleConscience sparring with my mind,
The battlefield of a war inside,
War torn emotion is easy to find,
But are you willing to risk joining the fight.
Inane words,
Are trades across the field,
A single shot,
A deadening thud.
And confusion,
Some fight,
Most die.
Then comes the generals,
Each wielding swords,
Blood stained faces,
Troubled by greed.
One wins,
One falls,
Who pay for their sins,
Who lives with their lies.
Was it conscience,
Or my mind,
That took the bullets,
From this gun.
:thumb362843502: Sensing whiteWhite costume, helpers armor
I can feel it’s lightness against me
which is numb from waiting.
First time we meet, dear Alzheimer.
Worn skin, aged body
unexpected smell, seizing stink
Is this disgust what I feel?
I see gaze, facing the human.
Human which was.
Human which is.
Feeling is not sorrow, sour, cold.
Molten determination sticks from the touch
storming inside me, radiating from my words
Exuding from my eyes
glucking back

Beyond the SurfaceThe eyes of one can tell many a story
For that which lies within their eyes is their history
Their experiences
Their entire life
There are tired eyes
These tell of a life filled with nothing but hard work and giving
All these eyes want is release
They want to finally to be able to close and not open again
Eternal rest for the hard working and unselfish
Then you have sharp eyes
These belong to such persons who are shrewd and calculating
Their eyes dart around missing nothing
When their eyes rest upon you
You shift and you look around nervously
Trying not to look at them as a bead of icy sweat slowly rolls down your now hot flesh
Their piercing gaze upon you fe3els like cold daggers slicing into your soft flesh
These people are smart
They are not to be made enemies of
And then you have eyes that which are dull
They appear to be flat and unemotional
No depth
No soul
No humanity lies within
Do not let your guard down in front of them
For as far as you know it is all a
PlagueUpon this this earth walks a plague
A plague that ravages the land like a lioness that ravages those who come for her cubs
A ripping
Vicious plague that destroys all it touches
Its touch is like that of a tendril of the sun
Long and snaking
Scorching and devouring all it touches
This plague will stop at nothing to destroy everything on this earth
Nothing is safe from its touch
Not the rich and powerful
Not the middle class or the poor
Not even our children are safe from this hideous thing that occupies this earth with such malicious intent
It takes and it conquers all that lay before it with ruthless efficiency
This thing
This hideous monster that is laying waste to us all
Is you
It is me
It is all of the humans that rule this planet with an iron fist
You are destroying me
I am destroying you
We are all destroying each other
We are destroying this earth with every pitiful, unjustifiable, raking breath we take
The cure to the plague that is humans?
Total, mutual, annihilation of
Winter's ChillThe night descends upon the earth
The shadows creep out from hiding
They crowd around what light remains
Swallowing everything else
Riding upon the gentle breeze is a vicious chill
One that envelopes you and leaches all the warmth from your body and soul
A chill that makes you look over your shoulder in fear
As the shadows thicken and undulate
You try to walk faster but your legs seem to malfunction
Your pupils dilate, becoming small pin points as a tiny, cool bead of sweat slowly rolls down the side of your face
Your chest becomes tight as you desperately try to take in more air
A quick glance behind you constricts your throat as your mind is seized in fear
All of your limbs lock up
What lies before you is a monster so hideous
So foul
So absolutely corrupt and dark
All you manage is a tiny, pathetic little squeak as it descends
