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: leilalilium :iconleilalilium:

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

I don't even know where to start to define me, but surely I'm an italian girl of 21 years, and my real name is Martina. I love a lot of boring things and is not easy to understand me.

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

I found deviantART long time ago, probably i searched images for some blog, or similar. I decided to join here when I started to drawing. I was 15 years old and had another nickname. I drew really horrible things, but I was very proud of those.

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

I've always been passionate, but when I was a teenager I was ashamed of this, I found it was stupid, but i was stupid. Now art is a very important part of me, but I still don't understand whether it is positive or not. It helped me so much, but at the same time it prevents me from doing many things, so is a double edged sword.


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

I can only paint when I'm inspired by strong emotions, as a strong joy, or anger, or sadness, and for this reason I can't make it a real job or business: is very difficult for me, often painful. I know it sounds funny, but as I said it is difficult to understand me. However, I must admit that I love painting and listening to music at the same time.

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

I don't know if it's a path, or just a passage. I would like it much. I honestly have to solve a lot of things in my life, before I can say with certainty that this is what I wanna do. I'm still confused, but I'll let you know.

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

A very important thing of my works is that I never decide beforehand what is the meaning of, I know it only when it is finished.
I was in love with Give me liberty for a long time, because when I finished it, I realized that my paintings were no longer as before, and that something in my way of painting was completely changed. Then, I'm deeply linked to Anorexia life, which is clearly a part of my life. This disease made me the person who I am: I felt to express hundreds of emotions in this way.


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

Oh, completely. I never really love what I do, but simultaneously I not tolerate well the negative reviews. Sometimes I think: "Why all these people appreciate my horrible works?" then, at other times, I think: "Why they don't appreciate me more?".
Maybe when I was a child I painted for my own sake, but now I can't. Probably i've lost my "purity".

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

Yes, very much, more than one might think. I sometimes feel trivial and useless, but having something that makes me special comforts me.

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

Going to live in Japan, get away from here.


:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Really thanks for having the patience to read. Unfortunately I have no advices, I'm the first not to follow.

Literature Feature

:thumb299440079: The Story of Girls and BoysSee that girl?
She made him smile on his worst days,
She stayed up to talk to him every night.
He made mistakes but she forgave him always,
He ignored her - he knew that wasn't right.
He didn't care, took her love for granted;
He expected her to always just be there.
She liked him but she wasn't what he wanted,
He dated other girls, she tried not to care.
Finally, she left, didn't want to wait forever
She found a better guy who liked her too.
This guy saw her potential, he adored her;
His intentions with her were honest and true.
Seeing them together made him realize something:
Without her, he was stuck in a lonely world.
All he had left was the memory of her leaving,
He had lost out on one amazing, special girl.
:thumb299498059: On The InsideOn the inside I'm alone
In my head there is chaos
On the outside I'm free
I'm calm and just me
I hang myself everyday
Under my skin I kill myself
What you see is a smile
What you hear is a laugh
A lost soul looking for a purpose
What does it expect to find?
Answers or the truth?
Cause am I really alive?
