Works in the Spotlight

Lazy Hours by Faded2Indie

Lazy Hours

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 Lyrics.

Music speaks to us in so many ways. A single note can bring a tear to our eyes, a verse can say exactly how we feel, but haven't the means to put it into words. Lyrics tell stories of broken hearts, found love and lost dreams. What are some of your favorites?


When you finally experience that amazingly wonderful, terrifyingly beautiful feeling... it really is like falling. And Jamie's words, as always, speak directly to the heart. Simply breathtaking.


Sweet and beautiful is a father's words to his daughter. Take a listen, and get lost in the simplicity of a parent's love.


Pointed and Powerful. Can you hear the voices raised?


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 Music.

Just a lyrics can speak to us, so too can a beautiful picture of a musical theme. They can make you want to jump right in and sway with whatever it is they are listening to, or playing. Close you eyes... what do you hear?


tempo vertigo by sekiraku

I love the sense of movement. You can tell she is very much into what she is listening to. And the little details included in her outfit are simply wonderful.


Andhaka by tux93
Incredible atmospheric shot. There is something... almost magical about it. The lighting and colours are gorgeous and vivid, his pose is perfectly frozen.


Project WE: Canon in D Major by yuumei
Project WE: Canon in D Major
This piece was my first favorite of hers. The tone, the musical piece she based it upon, and the sense of intensity I feel from it, will always strike home.

Please stop by their galleries and take a look!

Inspiring Writers and Artists Vol 5

Alice awakens by dinmoney


DA has so many wonderfully talented writers and artists in the community. Some are well known, others not so much. Each week, I feature several on my front page boxes, hoping they can bask in the glow of the spotlight for a bit. The topics and genres vary, but each are gems in their own right.

Here are this week's picks!

Wacky Forms

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.

Animated Avengers Divider (Dark) by Gasara


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 eleth89
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 EranFolio
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 at what else they have to offer.
My thanks to the lovely writers and artists who have provided us with such gems.

And if you know of someone who deserves the spotlight, please let me know!

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.
