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: RutePascoal :iconrutepascoal:

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

Maybe the most difficult question! I guess one of the things that is also reflected in my art: patience.

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

I discovered deviantART when I went to high school. I was searching other artists' work and I found the site. I really liked it and I thought it was good starting point to share my art so I made an account and published some drawings. Although my drawings were not very good back then, I started receiving very good feedback so it somehow gave me encouragement to do more and better.

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

Since I was a kid I always enjoyed painting and getting my hands dirty! As I live in the countryside I always loved nature and always loved to make collections of everything.
As I grew older, I turned it off a bit my artistic side, but I never lost what was inside me so after going to high school I finally found my passion: Drawing.
Few years later I started painting too and discovered a new passion!
Now although I love drawing, what I really love to do is painting. There’s a different kind of magic in the ink.

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

I am a bit sensitive. The smallest thing can affect my mood and leave me without inspiration to paint for the rest of the day. Neither inspiration nor will.
I especially like days filled with sun because they give me energy and an eagerness to do several things.
When I'm painting I like to be in silence with my music and just focused on my work. If I have people around me or other things to distract me I cannot do the job as well as it was supposed to. Also I hate being watched, I get a little nervous.

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

I really don’t know because I was never sure what I wanted to be when I grew up. Only when I discovered the art world something inside me said that this was what I wanted to do, no matter what.

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

My creativity to create images sometimes is very poor and because I love realism what I really like to do is draw or paint from objects, people or photographs. I especially like my last oil painting, which portrayed the hands of my sister. I feel that I reached a level of realism that I was trying to achieve some time ago and I definitely want to continue and improve it.

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

Well when I finish a artwork I think that it is great and I couldn’t have done better, but after a while I look at it and I end up noticing a thousand mistakes and details that I might have worked better, but this is something good because it makes us work harder and do better.

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

Yes. When I have many problems in my head is a way to disregard everything that disturbs me.

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

Travel. A lot! I only had the opportunity to be in Italy and I just loved. I'd love to know more cultures and portray what I feel and see through my art. But I still hope one day be able to do this.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Well I am always thinking that I hope I'll never feel I have achieved my best because then I can always have the ambition to improve so I advice you all to do the same and never give up just because some people don’t like what you do, indeed it should make you stronger.

Literature Feature

Unintentional || SixShe told them everything they asked.
In return, she learned that they were born in Kansas, they'd been hunting since they were children and the pay was crap. It was harder to look them in the eyes and pretend to care when all she wanted to do was spit in their eyes.
Yet, there were two things that kept nagging at her the whole night.
One, that she was afraid. She was putting on a good show of pretending to be astonished that she was four inches tall... But that wasn't all an act. She knew what they were capable of and they werent shy about their disdain for the supernatural world. Just one of the men would have outmatched her in size and strength. She had two on her hands.
And secondly, that she wasnt really angry. Not at them. She found excuse after excuse to be pissed at them: The way their hands sometimes moved when they talked, their self-righteous attitudes, their egos and superiority complexes- even the plaid pattern of Sam's shirt. But the truth was, she was angry at hers

outsideyou tore me out into the night
following the world
through the bulb of your vestibule.
what cures can come of this
shadowing the supermoon,
grabbing handless at a halo
that tumbles down into a pile of koans?
we perch our listeners up in oakleaves
where katydids shriek across the limbs,
the song of neurons in our empty streets.
the white cat settles like a chinese lantern
onto the bench, and you sit there, too,
the pair of you, progenitors of silence,
suspenders of far off energies,
the dark heads of heather
that lap my nervous matter
back into the belly of a girl.
I wasn't meant to survive.
i may have drowned but you, you'll burnthe water rose above my collarbone though you promised you'd help keep me on the surface.
you'd keep me less dense, less probable, less present - anything - to keep me from going under but that's just the thing about bullshit you're fed with when you go to a synagogue after spending your first night at a brothel; you hope that you've prayed enough to spit in the face of the fool who created you out of boredom when you're done defying Him.
i have learned that your words resemble the pretty little flowers he used to place in my hair and that the hands that trace the arch of my cheekbone time and again were never yours but always, always his.
i wonder if i was taken in by your fragrant yet fast fading vows; i should have known from your asphodel stature that you had never tried the fear of an eternal God for size. you are closer than Narcissus will ever be to self-obsession as you choose to repeatedly hang yourself in envy of - none other than - yourself.
and you really should know that t
