Missing Daughter's Portrait Presented to Father.
The "Guardian Angel  Project" launched here on deviant Art, continues to be a real source of inspiration for countless thousands of people.
Watch this television news feature, as artist John Paul Thornton's painting of missing girl Aja Johnson is hand-delivered to her father, Mr. JJ.Johnson...
Guardian Angel Participants across America volunteered to receive an actual painting of a missing child from their region and "Do something " with it, to honor the child and raise awareness.
Fellow deviant artists Jake Van Dongue:iconsublimebudd:and Jeanette Van Dongue:iconNettieR: asked if they could arrange to have Aja's painting delivered in person to her father. After much work and dedication, the emotional presentation took place.

This is a tangible testament to what deviant art as a site is able to generate, and what art is capable of.

Hollywood Carnival
DistortedSmile and pullingcandy  are proud to join together the Galleries they Moderate - Pinup & Glam and Horror & Macabre in a Contest to explore and challenge the art and creativity the various genres bring.
Hollywood has a history of sinister glam.
The beautiful people always seem to be up to something dangerous and deadly.
Your inspiration should be style icons such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis, Frank Sinatra- and then make them a bit more twisted.
Can be celebrity or your own creation of character, can be villain or victim, can be dark without being gore, can be sensual without being naked.

Erotic nudes are frequently interpreted as pornography.  But there's this ability to make artistic nudes and fetish portraits that are erotic and sensual without being overly explicit.  To be nude, without being naked.  
To clarify - nudity is allowed, and even desired!  What we're not looking for is close up, explicit nudes of genitalia.
Erotica is defined by Websters as:
Main Entry: erot·ic
Etymology: Greek erotikos, from erot-, eros

Culinary Arts Week - Interview with snocookie05
As part of the Culinary Arts week I am bringing you information, features and interviews. Today we have an interview with :iconsnocookie05: BluestOfBirds, has a gallery full of edible art that looks and surely tastes amazing. She took out some time and agreed to let me interview her regarding her culinary work. I hope you all enjoy!
Can you tell me a bit about yourself? How did you get into culinary arts? Is it a hobby or your professional career? Did you teach yourself or did you go to cooking school to learn your art?
My biggest passion in life was, and always will be, the arts. I realized that I could use my talents in fine arts to apply it to pastries, baking, and cooking. So after high school I went to the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute and got a degree in Pastry Arts and Baking. I am now working as the Pastry Chef at a country club in Aurora, Ohio. A lot of my job is taking what I learned in school and going

The Michael Jackson Tribute Contest
One year ago, on June 25, 2009 the world lost a great iconic figure - MICHAEL JACKSON. His signature dance moves, legendary music videos, spectacular live shows and his multiple award-winning songs immortalized him. The exceptionally  gifted singer, songwriter, dancer and entertainer was one of the most successful and influential artists of all time. A true genius.
With this Tribute Contest we want to remember and honor Michael Jackson for his lifework - his legacy to the music world. We are calling artists all around DeviantART to celebrate Michael Jackson's life and music by entering this contest.
The Contest
Show us your love to Michael, your vision of Michael or anything related to him. Show us how you are remembering him, how you see him as an artist and human being.  Let your imagination go wild! Create an amazing piece of art in any medium. Your entry will be judged on its originality, creativity, and technique.
The contest starts today, J

Wooooo, it's been months, again, since I've posted. Life has been crazy and busy and awesome and I am totally making excuses for not taking the time to post here more often. :P

Sooooo, what's been going on. Well, as I've documented, quite sparsely, on my blog, I am working on a crochet Vera and a few new hat ideas. I am hoping to launch another crochet pattern to my shop before the year is up.

I have just uploaded a free pattern that also comes with youtube tutorial videos if you're new to crocheting amigurumis, so there's that! :D

Aaaaaand I must hurry back to work. Hope to hang around dA a little more again in the future as I have just gotten a super portable Ultrabook that lets me be all social on the net on the go. :B But for now, love and chocolate to all of you!

Just want to say thanks for the patterns you have on Ravelry! I've started one of your dragon scarfs as a birthday gift for my BJJ coach, and I'll probably be making up your viking hat soon too for another one of the guys I train with. I really like how you set out your patterns, they're very easy to follow.

Keep up your great work!!
