Recycled DreamsI was halfway down the second floor apartment stairs when I realized I'd left my left arm on the table.
It's no surprise of course, for I've always had a habit of misplacing important things like keys, documents, and identification cards, but to leave one’s arm on the table is truly embarrassing. I would have run back to get it, but the bus driver is always a bit early on Tuesdays and I could already hear the distant hum of the engine making its way to me. And it's not like I really need it for work anyway. So I left it behind.
It's penguins and oranges today; my latest client is a fairly normal one. The last dreamer wanted marsupial martial arts masters in Atlantis. In space. You would think putting dreams to canvas is an easy job, and you'd be right - but truly I wonder about humanity at times. Subconscious wanderings are laid bare to my paintbrush - they get their dreams, and I don't fall apart entirely.

The DriveSitting here in this pointless office, I wander in my mind to different places, different times, different worlds. Somehow it feels like the world is trying to erase my ambition, creativity and ability to touch other people. I dont know what to do with myself anymore, it is frustrating to not think that you are a machine, typing and pressing gray buttons to the rhythm of the ticking clock.
Some low whispered empty conversations, annoying mechanical phone rings, the night is falling down so fast you cant even see it coming. The windows are so dark you cannot feel the real difference between day and night, its all the same here, all the same.
A girl approaches me, bends a little on my desk, smiling. She says shes from Human Resources, wants to interview me about the workers conditions. I nod as I log off my user and detach off the keyboard. She leads me into a small room, round table, two chairs and a little laptop sitting quietly, humming to itself.
She asks me a
11 Things I Love About dAdeviantART has served us for 11 years already and, no matter when we joined, it definitely changed something for every one of us. Some of us have found friends, others received inspiration to create or improve their skills, or experienced changes in many different personal aspects as well.
So why don't we take a moment for dA's 11th birthday to write a list of 11 things we love about dA? How did it help us? Did it make us grow as artists? Is it fun? What did it get you addicted to?
Your entry can be sincere and profound, as well as silly and fun - it's up to you!
You can only submit one entry, and you have an entire week to submit your list to Contests > 2011 > 11th Birthday Contests > 11 Things I Love about dA. This gallery will be closed on the 7th of August 2011 11:59pm (PDT) and we'll be rewarding the best entries in the after-party!
Even though the main goal of the project is th

A mere eleven years ago, deviantART met its humble beginnings. Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere. We never forget those few small sparks that launched deviantART to be where it is today, and that's what we're celebrating during our birthday season.
For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co
News to know! A quick recap!The behind-the-scenes works never stops at deviantART and we’ve had our hands in a many pots as of late. Here’s a quick recap of recent upgrades and also information about a few enhancements that are soon on their way.
If you’re a follower of devBUG, you already have some familiarity with Stash -- the name we’ve given to the revamp of deviantART’s exisiting submission process.
However, Stash is so much more than a simple revamp. Your Stash on deviantART will become home to all your images, writing... everything! Here's how it works:
You can drag and drop multiple files into your Stash, quickly and easily.
However, those files won’t appear in your Gallery, or to your Watchers, until you specifically say so. Allowing you an easy place to storage images until you’re ready to publish
Photography ResourcesLots of people have had troubleshooting queries over the past few months that we've addressed through various articles you might have seen over at communityrelations.

If you've got something you'd like to see included then please note us with the information. Enjoy!
Dull Images on dA
When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!
