The Horror - Vol. Seven: March 08 Features
It bleeds... it oozes... it makes you squirm in your chair but you can't look away. As the darkness grows heavier your shrieks are muffled in the cold night air. Around here, no one can hear you scream...
The highlights from the Horror and Macabre Photography gallery for the month March 2008. Enjoy! :devilish:

Disable FAVE Option?
:+fav: Introduction
What am I talking about?
Faving art is REALLY important for artists. To get their Art view and get more expozure!
deviantART is just the most wonderful Art Community in the cyber world. Most of us have strong ties with this site and their Admins. This Community knew through the years how to built a vivid, creative and wide site!
Faving art as well as devwatching a deviant allow the artist to continue his work, improving etc. That's our way to show an artist we love him, we love his creations and that we SUPPORT him!

:+fav: "Disable Fave" Option, Why?
:pointr: Into deviantART there are clubs that have developed a lot and keep this Community more alive and creative, spreading the love and the support, via thematic clubs.
When you submit your own creation to dA, you have several options that can be found in your submission page, see at the bottom.
You have a scroll box that allows you

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`xerces is a fairly legendary sounding name which is appropriate given that this is a fairly legendary deviant, who in just over 2 short years has contributed close to 20,000 comments on deviations and thousands of other comments elsewhere on this site. In addition to that she has worked hard via her journals and news articles to help educate the community to help keep the galleries clean in addition to her tireless work behind the scenes reporting images that are out of place.
She is indeed an example to follow, and has earned the honor of deviousness for November!
-awarded November 2007

Any amount- big or small- is welcome, and deviants donating will get featured in my journal as a small 'thank you'.

Much too long..

Thu Mar 28, 2013, 2:50 PM


Hello folks!
Yes, it's been far, far too long since I was around in these neck of the woods for more than a fleeting moment!
I've been busying myself with two jobs and a homelife, meaning I have little time to squeeze in those 5-hour long commenting sessions. Unfortunately, I'm a few thousand messages behind, as deviantART is adamant that my commenting is spam! Alas, it means I get to say a lot less on here than I wish to, but c'est la vie.

Anyway, since my last journal entry back in August 2011, my life has rather changed slightly. I now own a house, and not only have I got my full time job as before, I'm also juggling it with my small jewellery business. It's not a huge earner, and I'm far from quitting my day job, but then it's helping me to save for important things like decorating and fixing up my home with my fiance.

And on that note, in just over a weeks time, I'll be getting married, which is also where a huge amount of my time has been eaten away! Not only have I organised it all, but I've also made the invites, wedding favours, bouquets, table decorations, seating plan, order of service, jewellery, cufflinks and confetti. Phew!

This is my excuse fro being a smidgen busy, but it's definitely worth it. So, in just over a week, I'll be happy to call myself Mrs Hall. Wonderful.

A few of my favourites...

Hello there! I am from the good ole' UK. I am a photographer and jewellery crafter

I've been on deviantART since June 2005. I got a seniorship in October 2007 and a deviousness award in November 2007. I was accepted into the MN@ team in September 2008 until June 2011, so I am a very proud member.

On deviantART, I am a keen photographer and horror SFX artist, as well as a long-time supporter of the other artists around.

In my other time, I work as a geologist, meaning if I throw a rock your way, I'll be able to tell you what rock it is, and how good it is for holding oil. But yeah- it won't be that much of a consolation if it hits you.

I also have my own business in the making, selling jewellery and accessories. At the moment, my work can be found on Etsy at Xerces Art on Etsy, and some items are also currently on exhibition at the Paperboat Gallery, Ellesmere Port, England, UK
