Today I bring forth to be interviewed a new deviant, who's just started on dA, but already shows a huge ammount of talent and make art of inspiring, beautiful and inviting places, where you certainly want to be at - besides being a sweetheart to talk to.

Meet me in Europe! :DSo, as you might know (or not), I've been in Europe for about a week by now - I came here to meet namenotrequired - but yeah, if you follow me on Facebook you probably knew that already.Anyway, I'm having a wonderful time here and I've seen a lot of things already in the Netherlands, and I even met Exillior and we hung around in Amsterdam for two days - it was fantastic!. I also went to Pinkpop and saw my favourite singer (Ellie Goulding) and walked more in a couple of days through dutch cities than I probably did in years. So, I will stay here until August 31st, and I really would like to meet deviants who I've always talked to and live in Europe but I never had the chance to meet since this is my first time abroad. But of course, I need to know first who wants to meet me. So if you do, comment here!By the way...just keep in mind I might not be able to visit everyone, depending on where you live it may be fa
After a long time, hello again!So! Hm... damn, it's been so long since I last wrote a journal. I don't even remember WHEN was the last time I wrote one. I have so many things I'd like to talk about, and yet, words fail me. I've done a bunch of stuff this year, but the most important part is yet to come: next week I'll do the test to try to get into University. I intend on studying Design, and later specialize in Games and work with game concept art. That'd join two of my passions, art and games. The more time passes, more I get interested in the area. I really hope I can fulfill my dream.On another note, I've spent most of my year studying, every now and then I'd get a job for a while, I've had my love namenotrequired visit me twice (and in July, for two months ), I went to the biggest book event in Latin America and met a lot of amazing people, including the author of The Selection, Kiera Cass, and I've been into collecting some things, such as mangas, action figures and books. Besides, I'm now part
The Life of Hayao MiyazakiMiyazaki is one of the world's greatest animators, creating some of the most memorable movies such as Howl's Moving Castle and The Wind Rising. He has outdone himself many times and grabbed our hearts over and over, but where did this all start?Born on January 5th, 1941 in Bunkyo, Japan, Miyazaki spent most of his young life with his family who worked in the war industry creating airplanes and fighters.While visiting an elementary school, his interests of Manga creations grew. He has been inspired by many shounen magazines and dreamed of being a Manga artist himself someday. But this changed after Miyazaki's visited the high school. He watched The Tale of the White Serpent, a movie that left him memorized and fascinated by the heroine. This movie had been the fix point of

Celebrating Diversity HubWelcome to the Celebrating Diversity Hub This is a collection of all the articles that have been posted under this theme.We live in a world full of diversity, every day in real life and every day on dA. And it happens so often that a work of art is "slashed" simply because it is different than others. Because someone sees it and doesn't understand it and doesn't take the time to think about it.People who react like that to art, follow the same thought process, that so many many people follow when it comes to Racism, Sexism, Homophobia: "This is different to me, therefore it must be wrong." You may wonder if that comparison may not be too harsh, but when we open they way for people to condemn what is different in the small things, like in this case Art, we open the path to that thought process taking shape in many more places.Instead of hating on differences, we need to embrace them! Because differences make life so great! We don't want to live in a dull world where everyone think
