Hi Danielle,
New Photojournalism only group #TheCorrespondent
Would love a mention to let all PJ lovers out the know about us as there was a lack of active Photojounalism only groups on dA. There obviously was a need as we are growing fast :)

These first 3 are from the artist that does most of the DA fella art so not sure if you'd call it fan art. But till I ran across his profile i'd never seen some of these

#WeAreVanity is a group for make-up lovers! Anybody is welcome to join and submit their work, whether it's amateur or professional. We are currently looking for more contributors to join our staff too, so we would love to hear from any of you interested in make-up and looking to share that love with others! :la:
