Works in the Spotlight

Death Comes A-calling by RavensQuill

Death Comes A-calling

Writers to Watch

Each week I will be featuring a few writers that I have taken a particular shine to. Some may be well known, others, more obscure. This week highlights Wacky Forms.

Wacky forms in prose and poetry add a little something extra to the work. Take a peek...down these rabbit holes.


This piece, though disjointed, really draws the eye. The lines speak of color in an interesting way. The final line makes me think there is more to the story.


The repeating of the words "the sky" in the first few lines actually enhanced the story. It brought my attention forcefully to the subject at hand and re-emphasized the main character's vision. I found it a breezy read, and yet deep in sentiment.


Inspired by the layout of E.E.Cummings, the way this poem is set out makes it fun and engaging to read. And yet the words themselves are just this side of bittersweet.


Please stop by their galleries and take a look!

If you know of one you think deserves some spotlight, let me know via note.


Inspiring Talent

Each week I will be featuring a few artists that I have taken a particular shine to. Some may be well known, others, more obscure. This week highlights Wonderland.

Shh... hark do you hear? The sounds of strangeness, the laughter of the mad, the clink of chipped china. Join me as we travel along the paths of the weird, and wondrous Underland. A place I hold dear, and would willing go if only I could find that magical White Rabbit's hole, or Looking Glass...


A World of My Own by Queen-Kitty
A World of My Own
As she looks around, the expression upon the model's face perfectly displays what Alice might feel when first encountering the other side of the looking glass. The tone and angle is well designed and beautifully set.


tea by eleth-art
A warped table, floating tea sets, a mouse and a hare fighting over spoons, and over seeing it all? That delightfully Mad Hatter. Out of every delightful and wonky gem in this picture, it is Alice's expression that takes the tea cake!


The Jabberwocky Page 8 Spread by EranFowler
The Jabberwocky Page 8 Spread
Brilliantly crafted, the black and white shadow-like cutout forms captures the wicked wonder of the Jabberwocky poem, and still manages to instill that fear of the creature.

Please stop by their galleries and take a look!

Huge Hearts and Helping Hands


Tender-Heart by KmyGraphic

Beautiful deviants around the site who are always there with a kind word, and a helping hand. They are true gems.



Jenene is one of DeviantArt's finest. I have known her for years now, and even when her world is at its darkest, she never fails to display a giving spirit, loving words and beautiful talent. I have been privileged to know her, and hope to continue far into the future.


Toxic is an absolute sweetie. She is kind, loving and supportive with words and actions. I haven't known her long in actuality, but I have discovered she is a wonderful hidden gem here on DA.
