The Artery Manifesto
Don't believe what the emo kids say - arteries aren't just for cutting.
The Artery isn't a club or a community, in the usual sense of the word - it doesn't have its own account and it doesn't have lists of its members. What it does have is a method for connecting accounts and members to each other. Just as a real artery pumps blood from one part of the body to the other, The Artery promotes the exchange of ideas from genre to genre, ferrying inspiration from one group of artists to another (and back again - I realise that process would technically be called The Vein, but there's only so far one can carry an analogy.)
This initiative grew out of my long association with noted traditional artist maxine. Throughout our long history we've constantly created artworks that complement one another - she's illustrated my poetry and I've written accompaniments to her paintings. I have never had a more fulfilling creative relationship. We want to share this experience with you all!

-- Stock Up -- Vol. 19
My parents are supposed to be traveling down to my house today, and they are supposed to be bringing my old cat with them. So in honor of getting back my old friend, we are going to take a peak into the world of cats on deviantART. I've featured big felines before, now it's time to feature the ones inside of our houses.
Cats have always been some of our best friends, even the ancient Egyptians had cats as pets.First let’s see just how these furry friends can be used in other forms of art:

Fractals, fractals fractals!
This is my biggest feature yet! Usually I try to keep myself to ten pieces, but that was just impossible this time; the fractal gallery was overflowing with gems and I had a hard time narrowing it down to these twelve! So go give every one the attention it deserves. ;-)

Asian Dragon by Smudgeproof is a very geometric fractal. Most of the textures are combinations of squares, triagles, and circles that not only rock, but also look like scales - very appropriate considering the title.

While "Do not disturb my circles" may seem an odd name for a fractal, espanacani chose this name very well. 'Do not disturb my circles' is (according to legend) the last thing Archimedes ever said. This fractal, with its simple yet interesting geometry, reminds me very wtrongly of Archimedes and his wonderful mathematical and scientific descoveries.

Verbena definately shows kreativefractal's sense of flow! The soft colors and even softer curves

Animator Joe Barbera dies
Joe Barbera, half of the Hanna-Barbera animation team, has passed away at the age of 95. He died of natural causes.
If you don't know who Joe Barbera is, he's the man who brought us such great characters such as Tom and Jerry (his first sucessful cartoon), Scooby doo, and many other, netting him several academy awards in the process.
Good night sweet prince. We shall remember all you've given us

DArtists Contest: It's Christmas, Make Me Cry
It’s Christmas -- Make Me Cry!
Deviant Art Contest for the Group dArtists
Many emotions can arise during the holiday season. From the stress of not finding a parking spot at the mall to the joy of seeing all your loved ones to the sheer agony of going back to work after its all done, yes this season can be quite a trip. It can bring out the best, and sometimes the worst, in all of us. To Celebrate dArtists is holding a contest based on emotion. We want you to make us cry. That’s right all 6 of the judges are in a mood for a good cry.
It does not matter how you make us cry. It can be through something sad or happy. It can even be funny, although getting a good cry out of laughter may be the most challenging. The bottom line is that we want to view or read art that strikes a chord deep within us. Some judges are more emotional than others. For instance, I happen to be crying now just thinking about it. But other judges have been known to turn to stone. So it’s up to

Featured Product Shots!
Have you ever wondered what the products in our Shop actually look like? Dumb question, of course you did.

We finally have a range of quality photos of our various print and merchandise products to give you an idea of them with our deviant artists' work printed on them.

Photo credits go to our very own %achfoo and %fangedfem.

Photo Prints

Images are printed on Fujicolor® Crystal Archive II paper which uses a silver halide process and RA4 chemistry, mimicking the traditional analog printing process. Instead of negatives, our digital mini-labs use lasers to expose the paper and produce prints that rival and even surpass those originatin

Hello! I've been doing mostly traditional art lately, and nothing I would really post on here. I took a couple of online drawing courses and they are much more stylized and not realistic faces. I want to get more into collage making and I have really been enjoying the entries from CollageChallengers , Gluefingers , The-Art-Of-Collage and AlteredMixedCollages

so to show my appreciation, here are some wonderful collage features!
