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: Porkchop89 :iconporkchop89:

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

I consider myself a collector of skills. First and foremost an artist. I know how to tattoo, I'm a butcher, story teller and continue to collect more skills. I'm but a simple man, but I wish to do many things.

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

I found deviant art through friends, I use it as a good social media site and networking with other artists.

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

Monsters. As a kid it was always monsters that made me want to draw. The monsters in the closet, the monsters in the sea and all monsters everywhere. Stories of monsters is what I create and what I enjoy most.


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

I become inspired when looking at other artists work, as well when I read about ancient horrors and monsters from the past. The porcelain throne is where all my best ideas have come to light. Odd, but true.

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

I've always wanted to do many things so this is a difficult question to answer. I'd say I'd be a butcher, but I'm doing that and its amazing. So as someone who wants to learn many things I'm not sure how to answer this question.

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

The deviations that mean the most to me are my character sketches. Creating characters is one of my favorite things to do, creating their stories, their environments and their whole world.


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

As do all artists, I don't always think my work is up to snuff. I sit at my desk, straighten my hat and get my work up to snuff.

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

My older brother had cancer when we were much younger, I used my artwork to deal with that whole situation.

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

I've always wanted to have lunch with Winston Churchill, I know it's impossible but he is my hero.


:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

To all other artists, do not cave to what others want! Be your own! Always remain you.

Literature Feature

an unfair indulgenceindulgent pondering
wondering if I had
kissed a girl
pretty in her insecurities-
anxieties masked by regiments of beauty-
fears dispersed in the wisps of perfume-
voice a practiced steady to never let out a quiver of her anticipation-
would her hidden energies
have transferred
fueled inspired
the man I could be
in the boy I was?
all of my evolution
triggered by
feminine wiles
she had yet to master?
it is my fate to remain wistful
Conversing With GodConversing With God
I’ve walked alone along my own path believing
I was in control;
That my future was hopeless
And all I was was your idea of a practical joke…
Someone to throw troubles and trials at
Just so you could laugh at
My feeble attempts to make my mountains
Into mole-hills I could deal with.
The day your people threw me from your house into
The wild wide world where wolves wait at every turn,
That day my faith became a candle
Whose flame was drowning in melted wax:
How could I trust a God
Who created hypocrites in his image?
Flickering, faith seemed impossible,
I could have denied your existence
But for two people who never stopped showing your true side.
Two people made in your true image…
They are souls burning with faith, hope, trust,
And they have indirectly imprinted these onto me.
When I stopped praying believing you to be deaf,
They continued to life me up in words spoken to you
That I will never know.
They stood by my side as
Clear MindA clear mind is an empty plate.
Reality, a buffet.

THE MIRROR LIES (AN ACROSTIC)Trying hard to be beautiful
Hoping to somehow fit in
Emulating perfection.
Make-up, curling irons, and clothes
It turns us into something else
Roses painted to be washed clean
Remnants of what we wish to be
Ordinary is never good enough
Resplendence never comes for free!
Look in the mirror, what do you see
Inner beauty is never there
Eyes are not made to look upon it
So goes the mirror, so goes the soul…
David Rogers
My FriendI don't want to say goodbye like that,
with fists deep in my pockets, with a scowl
twisting my face so that no tears can escape.
I don't want to live with regret-laced thoughts,
knowing I could have done so many things
to prevent this fall-out of ours.
But your anger burns just as hard as mine
behind this excuse of a smile
and your eyes harden whenever I open my mouth.
It kills me to know I will most probably never
meet anybody as extraordinary and similar to me
as you.
Alas, life goes on and sooner or later I'll have moved on,
with your smiling face forever engraved
into the back
of my forehead.
