Exaggerated Tales of Oreo Jones - Derbis Island 15
Day 15: Today was our last day on the island, and the trek back to the base camp was mostly uneventful. We tried to take in as much of the scenery as we could but we knew we had to leave. Dr. Picklesworth was still broken up about having to abandon the search for the Derbis Island Giant Snail after getting so close. He cried almost the whole way back, he didn't even laugh when Raulado almost walked right into the mouth of a bucktoothed Crocodile. The screams as he panicked were the best, and he barely got away after the loud snapping sound made by the strong jaws slamming shut in front of him. He stumbled backwards and ran back to us, as we took pictures and tried not to cry from laughter. As we left the jungle we saw our camp and took our time walking back, not looking forward to packing it all back up. After several hours of packing, we finished just in time for our boat to arrive. Once everything was loaded Raulado knew he was safe, he had survived this trip and nothing was going to

Day 14: The day started out well, we located a herd of Derbis Goats. This was one of the most exciting parts for Dr. Fleecier who is an expert on goats. He enjoyed photographing them as Ottera took notes. I most enjoyed the part when the goats started using Raulado like a ball and just kept head butting him back and forth. This may have been a good time to stop them, but they are fairly small goats and were not going to cause much damage. After spending time with the goats, we moved back into the jungle needing to cover a lot of land, and explore the best we could with the limited time we have left on this island. This is where the day started to change for us. The deeper we got into the jungle the noises started to return, again some familiar but as we got closer to the half way point on the island we heard something new. Something that would ultimately break Dr. Picklesworth. It was the call of the creature he wanted to find most. We only barely heard it at first, and that was enough

Day 13: Our expedition is approaching the end and we only have a short amount of time left on the island. Today we continued moving toward the last section of the island, trying to get as much work done as we could before we had to head back to base camp and meet up with our boat home. As we followed the river toward the edge to the jungle, we noticed something and quickly stopped. A large dark shadow appeared in the water following us. Not wanting to scare off the animal or trigger a possible attack on ourselves, we slowly continued moving toward the beach and out of the jungle. Wishing for more sunlight so we could finally see what it is that is following us. Soon we found out. To all of our surprise it was a Derbis Manatee and what was waiting for us as we got out to the beach was a whole aggregation of manatees. We smiled largely as we saw all the manatees swimming, so we photographed them as much as we could. The large creatures just looked so happy and gentle. This happy time did

Day 12: The farther we go into the jungle the more different it starts to look from the other side of the island, the jungle is much thicker and many parts are darker. The trees reach much higher and we are starting to notice sounds of other creatures around us. Some familiar like the calls of the hussies but then we heard calls that sounded like larger birds high in the canopy and the sound of small monkeys. We let Raulado think he was guiding us as we used him to test for danger ahead of us, letting him walk at least 15 paces in front of us at all times. Soon we learned that we were not the only one following Raulado around, a medium sized predator was stalking him and he was completely oblivious. Quickly we grabbed our cameras and started to drift back further from Raulado, who was too high on painkillers to notice as he talked to himself and continued on. Documenting as much as we could we waited to see what this creature would do and when we started to reach a point with more sun

Raulado is finally a semi functioning human being and we continued on with our journey. The pills seem to have effected his ability to think and he is too high to properly guide us. We have become lost into the jungle. We won't hold his incompetence against him, and are taking this opportunity to further explore the island. Our colleague, Dr. Cornelius Picklesworth, the expeditions most capable Snailologist, is very hopeful with the turn of events. He thinks this may be just what we need to find the islands legendary creature, the Giant Derbis Snail. Not much is known about this snail, or even if it exists, but we are hoping to find evidence of them and college DNA samples to compare with other species of snails.

Day 10: Our day started earlier than planned with the screams of Raulado. The pills had worn off and his cries echoed through the jungle. We gave him a bunch of pills and gave him a stick wrapped with a bandanna to bite down on, hoping it would keep his screams down, as he was scaring off the animals. Sadly this didn't work because apparently he is more sensitive to pain than we thought, which meant we had to limit our research for the day. We decided to photograph the landscape and sketch and document all we could. Raulado's screams did not deter one creature though, it instead summoned the French Skunk. We first noticed when the skunk began sniffing the legs of Ottera and she had to keep kicking him away. This of course only caused him to chase her more, and soon Ottera was running through the jungle screaming for help, as the skunk loudly sniffed and chased behind her. The calls of "woo woo" started and we could tell this would not end well. We told Ottera to climb the nearest tree

Day 9: We hit another set back, while exploring a pond and river near by to document the other wildlife on Derbis isIand, Raulado has had another dangerous encounter. While fantastic at guiding us he is not the most careful person when it comes to his own safety. While photographing and documenting Derbis Praying Mantis and Derbis Lady Bugs with Dr. Fleecier and his intern Miss Ottera Newfie, we heard the screams of Raulado and quickly ran to him. He was still holding the tail of a male Derbis Island Platypus as it dug it's spurs into his arms and envenomating  him. The pain was instant, but of course as scientist our priorities were to photograph and document the the rare platypus before it could escape back into the water. Raulado, we knew, wouldn't die from his encounter so we tried to ignore his cries for pain and told him that we would handle the first aid soon enough.
The swelling had already started and and pain spread up his arm as he continued to roll around screaming and

Day 8: We arrived back at camp to check on Raulado and discovered he received only a dry bite from the Derbis Snake and is able to continue on. After locating a good spot full of game trails clearly traveled heavily by snails we set up camp. We also encountered another problem, as Dr. Whale Fleecier has explained to me we heard the mating call of the French Skunk. We heard the echos of "Wooo Wooo" through the forest and then we saw it. We stood still as to not scare it off and observe it's actions. The French Skunk is an invasive species and only natural predator is the rarely seen angrywife, which means it is left free to prey on the poor goats of the area. What we saw next was very unusual. Dr. Fleecier told me it is the French Skunks mating dance which they use to attract mates. There was a lot of slapping of it's buttocks with it's tail and low level woo noises. We quickly had to scare it off however when it started to get closer and attempted to mate with our food. We now must kee

Day 7: This new part of the island seems to have much of the same wildlife we have encountered already. We mostly spent the day chasing geckos and other lizards, like children, and trying to see who could catch the most interesting creature out of all of us. Running through the jungle and the sands of the beach laughing and insulting anyone each chance we got, Dr. Picklesworth taking the brunt of most of our jokes. The winner of our challenge was of course me, with the bucktoothed day gecko. A funny looking lizard but equally beautiful, covered in the brightest reds, greens, and light blues. As we settled down for camp Ottera quickly ran out and jumped into the water. Backstroking through the crimson waves as the sun sets and reminding us all of the animal she is named after. Dr. Fleecier captivated by her swimming watched silently for several minutes before quickly removing all of his clothes and quickly diving head first into the crimson colored waves and joining her as the sky slowl

Day 6: We decided to travel across the island horizontally from this point on so we can cover this half of the island and loop back, traveling along the coast and seeing if our trusty guide Raulado has survived his horrible brush with the Derbis Snake. This way we could resupply and if he is healthy enough, continue on our journey with Raulado. If not, we can use his corpse to lure out various creatures in the jungle and document them as they feast on his body or investigate the unfamiliar smells of his corpse. We have heard rumors of larger predators on the island but so far have yet to see any big cats or the Derbis Crocodile.

Day 5: After yesterday's discovery we decided to explore the cave further. Dr. Picklesworth was the first into the cave and excitedly charged ahead, while Dr. Fleecier still nursing a hangover was the last of our group to enter the cave. He relied heavily on the assistance of his intern Ottera as she forced pills and water down his throat. The first 30 mins we laughed about Dr. Fleecier's mumbling about wanting to punch Dr. Picklesworth for being "So fucking cheerful" this early in the day. We carefully marked off areas we traveled to into the cave so we could find our way out as we headed deeper into the cave. The further we went into the dark unknown of the cave the stronger the stench got. The smell of ammonia hit hard, we quickly put on respirators so that we could safely breathe. This smell made it obvious what was coming next and soon we found it, the large cavern of the cave full of the Derbis Island Fuck Bat. The Derbis Island Fuck Bat is known for it's front fangs that resembl

Day 3: The further we got into the jungle, the more we heard the sound of what could only be the island's most famous bird. The Derbis Island Hussy, medium sized bird that is famous for three things. Getting drunk off fermented fruit that they find, awkwardly dancing and the female's call to attract mates. The hussy's call is very distinctive, the noises switch between what is a horrible squawking that sounds like a drunk college girl attempting French and failing just as hard at Spanish. The birds come down from the trees to feed on the fruit, usually eating until they can no longer fly or walk straight. Once they have consumed enough fruit to get drunk, the birds then start their calls as obnoxiously loud as possible. It doesn't take long before we find the male hussies, who quickly come down from the trees and also feast. That is when the awkward dancing happens and it only gets louder and more obnoxious. There is a lot of spreading of feathers, fanning them out to appear larger and

All Mediums Contest: 10 years from nowDear members,
projecteducate is happy to announce yet another contest that is open to all art mediums! This time around our prompt is related to the recent 18th Birthday of DeviantArt! Find out more by reading all the information below:
The Prompt:
No matter how old we are, we all have goals, aspirations and visions for our future. For this contest, I'd like you to reflect on where you would like your life to be in 10 years. I want you to create a piece of art that somewhat represents you and your life in ten years. It does not need to be in an obvious way, for example it doesn't need to be a portrait of you in the future, or a drawing of your future mansion, or anything like that. It could be something more profound, like perhaps a painting representing what you will have accomplished, or a sculpture of a lotus flower to represent the spiritual awakening you hope to have gone through. What I'm saying is, there are many ways to approach this theme, and it does not
Just One More Question...v5 
Dear all,
In February I introduced the first issue of this new journal series I am very excited about. I had this idea where I wanted to do a series that showcases the immense diversity of people we have as members here on DeviantArt. And I wanted to try something a little bit different with regards to interviews. Instead of interviewing multiple artists by asking them a series of in depth questions, I decided I would come up with just one question, and ask it to a large number of deviants from different artistic mediums, different backgrounds, different countries, etc. This way, you, the reader, get to discover the insights, opinions and experiences of a huge variety of fellow members all at once. I really hope you guys will enjoy this, last issue got a lot of amazing responses, please let me know if there are specific questions you'd like me to ask in future issues!

Are you my...? by ValentinaKallias Posthd-1457 by gilderstern Arising by AntonioGouveia
What We Wantthere is nothing simple about
what we want of this ghost
nor what it wants of us
our every word
ticks familiar nothings
along the rotary travel
of the context dial
and behind every note
of our skyward intentions
chirps the same
swirling nightful of insects
a mechanical enmeshment
of barbs strumming harpstrings
in prayers that somehow
its echo chamber might rename us
might not know us, might not realize
there's nothing
holding the strings taut
but myth and magnetic repulsion
i have a recurring dream
that i awake alone
in the backseat of a car
barreling down the highway
and from what i dream-remember
i'd already been driving it badly
before crawling into the backseat
for a rest, without stopping
there is nothing simple about
the ease with which
we forget
to stop
us saying we're already dead
merely mimics
what the echo chamber
has always named us
because war is all we've ever been
power and nothing beautifulwe are exhausted
from the black box guilt
under the waves, the drinker’s need
that carries us home to make believe once,
briefly, we had a lot to say.
what I remember each morning
isn’t harmless. what we outlived at home
strikes, retreats every comfort, every dreaming
secret insisting on its own innocence.
I begged to be a third person candle
inside a groaning pumpkin husk -
this rehearsal making me glow.
The WalkBitter coffee at dawn
is an aftertaste
of spilled wine and tears
at midnight.
Flames leap like cheerleaders
But I have little to cheer about
as I leave the house
blanketed in a mist of thought.  
I crumble his chocolate
from Ghirardelli,
litter the road with a shared moment
now dead in the grass.
I pound music in eardrums,
intermingling melodies
rewiring the heartbeat
and my voice is a chorus in a Shakespearean play
narrating heartbreak
through the analogy of pop.
Stained glass catches my eye -
what was once clear fogged up
by pastel paint glinting in grey.  
I watch them like it's aurora borealis
while the wind races the leaves to my feet
puzzled by my fixation to things that shatter.
By the lake I picture stones skipping away stillness
as my ears are loud with musical catharsis.
Raindrops tap a path home
but my feet cannot follow
those bulleted steps just yet.
I walk instead on the autumn ocean
blanketing the frost tipped grass
And like Moses I float upon its leafy waves
