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: albino-Z :iconalbino-z:

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

I would say art, respect for life in all forms and the (often unnoticed) beauty in little things.

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

Honestly I don't recall, I think it was due to a friend that was a deviant at the time. I joined out of curiosity but I remained for experiencing inspiring art.

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

I have been drawing since I remember myself. My passion for art though becomes evident to me when I stop drawing. I kind of lose myself.

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

I am inspired by the sublime of nature, by the explosive qualities and texture of trivial everyday things, by art that carries emotion. My creativity reaches its peak after midnight, especially when I feel I have something to say.

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

Actually, I am doing it! *laughs* I am currently working as an architect and painting is my "hobby".

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

Well, every piece of art carries the atmosphere of the time it was created- it has its own particular significance. If I had to chose one though, it would be the comic story here. It is a personal interpretation of the art creating process.

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

I only have insecurities. But I think that all artists do. Isn't art fueled by uncertainties?

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

It surely helped me deal with art itself. I have learned to manage disappointment that comes with finishing a piece by focusing on the next one. It is also a way of letting things go.

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

I always wanted to do studies from life. I have always worked from imagination, mostly without reference and I believe that it strips my work from that extra punch. But that will hopefully change soon.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

I will not say "keep making art" as for most of you there really is no other choice. What could be useful to those that are discouraged and often disappointed is to try and focus on the goal of becoming better than your "present self" and not on the single piece you have just finished. The most important piece is always the next one. If that made any sense.

Literature Feature

:thumb300834573: MeI'm sick of crying what about you,
I'm tired of trying is debt even due
Hey look they say, see her smiling,
No one knows me because if they did they would know I'm really dying.
Of solace        sleeping in today was the essence,
waking up the process of becoming singular
        I want to end it
but I can't stop associating you with these images—
:       a season being flung onto the ocean, making a mess of color
        there's an insect caught in my poetry,
trying to mend its broken wing

:thumb300790994: Convince MeYou have the ability
To convince me,
If you tried.
I want to be persuaded
When you look
Into my eyes.
Please continue talking
Because your words
Show me your view.
Maybe I'll believe them
When I feel
I've earned their truth.
HERMIT SIGNALSFive years ago I swooped beneath
this geologic curl that dolls up
the surly shore
like a stone pompadour
tridented in its swagger of a swish
into crew cut remission
by an unimpressed sea god
and his teal army of chicanes
shouldering its way up the beach
and closing in on my crescent corner
of compressed Society like spilled paint
I was a token boy
colour-blinded by sunset's seductive frills
when I made for the shadow in protest
to prove the weight of liberty
is malleable when exposed
to a hermit's nocturnal fire
furnacing the bliss of solitude
The grey neutrality of my seclusion
fled the waves' advancing brainwash
like a gravity-immune newt
scooting round the skewed rock awning
to meditate above the landscape
clouding the green promise of impending Spring
with scenic unease
Five years ago I huddled sonnet-tight
beneath this outcrop before
Society cast a swell on me
with its heatseeker of Demography
My smoke bullied like Jerusalem
behind the kettle-black ejaculations
of the Dark Satanic

Group Feature

TutorialsClub was created with a simple idea, to provide a place where people could find all the tutorials they would need and make it easy for them. Here you will find tutorials about just anything, from the usual digital painting to traditional, sketching, vectors, pixel art, but also crafts such as jewelry making, sword making and a lot more : )
