Love Unites Print Remix Contest w/ Shepard Fairey The CauseLove Unites Print Remix Contest w/ Shepard Fairey by gzobel
DeviantART has partnered with FAIR (Freedom, Action, Inclusion, Rights) to help promote equality through The Love Unites Shepard Fairey Equality Project. We're asking our members to align themselves with this cause through their passion and creativity, and have their work judged by renowned artist, Shepard Fairey, in the process.
FAIR, with its finger on the pulse of our generation's passion and potential, is revolutionizing what it means to be young and active. Stepping up after the passage of Proposition 8 (the California state proposition banning same-sex marriage) to galvanize tomorrow's leaders, FAIR emerged as a grassroot

This particular devInterview was done by 3wyl.
For devInterviews's next photography interview, we present sine-out. He has been a member of deviantart for five years.
Q. How did you find deviantART and what made you stay?
A. I first found dA in 2003, linked through an old poetry site I used to frequent (allpoetry.com), from a friends page. I didn't really have much of a use for dA at the time, what with my writing angsty poetry and not realising that dA supported a Lit community at that time, so I looked at my friends page and promptly left. About a year later (June 2004), I discovered dA again, which was a good thing because I was getting into photography and fractal art at the time, so, I posted my work and left for two months to return in August where I found a home in the Forums. In short, I found dA through a friend, and I stayed for the community, and for the occasional pla

The Originality IllusionIt's come to my attention that, in the online amateur writing scene, no one seems to understand the proper role of characters in conjunction with plot.The Originality Illusion by illuminara
From what I have been able to observe, literally everyone tries to create characters outside of plot by outlining what they look like, what they eat for dinner, and what bands they absolutely abhor. That's the law on how it's done. The amount of "character survey sheets" containing a never-ending list of questions for prospective characters is ridiculous--and sad, because determining these things will in no way help you create a good character or, more importantly, a good story (which I define as an account of a character's actions within a given plot).
In reality, your character is not going to comb his hair, sit down to the dinner table, or workout in the gym with his iPod during the erupting mayhem of your story. If he does, it's because you've invested way too much time in randomly select

Give Money to UNICEF and See @sine-out Go BaldIt seems that I've grown my hair (reasonably) long again.Give Money to UNICEF and See @sine-out Go Bald by sine-out
Normally, I get my hair cut short and then grow it out over about four months and cut it short again (and so on).
This time, I've decided to go a step further, on November 13th (a Friday), I'm going to go completely bald, and I decided to see if I can raise some money for a worthy charity.
The charity I chose was UNICEF, which is an international childrens charity run by the United Nations, UNICEF is a multi-faceted charity, and while its focus is on children, its nature means it hits many targets at the same time.
My Goal is $150 or £100.
