Here with another feature where we delve into individual folders each month to showcase and feature all the great work that our members have ever submitted to that particular folder. We'll also be sharing a video that matches the theme for the month.

This month the focus turns to Illustrated Literature.

Thank you, I can't take all the credit though we split the folders in two and LualaDy makes half the selections, then we bounce ideas around for the video.
I still can't believe DA didn't have an illustrated literature category to begin with, this format of image and text combined is such a wonderful form of expression. it was great to dive into our folder and discover all the pieces that have been submitted over the years.

Ah yes the lack of illustrated literature... the bane of my existence! I try to raise awareness with my other group CollaborativeMinds 
MegapixelMasterpiece Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
It’s such a great category too, combining art and text into one piece there’s something very satisfying about seeing the finished result, I haven’t made any in a while though. I really should check CollaborativeMinds more

Yep, I just wish I could conquer DA and make them give it more attention

I agree it could easily have its own section!
Even fanart gets its own little corner and there's a section for scraps.
How hard could it be to say "hey people we've decided to give illustrated literature its own section"
I know there is a section for it but it could be so much easier to find if they added as its own category

Yeah, but it is not all in on place (under each genre of literature and poetry) and there are soooooooo many miscats that it is hard to look through.
