Deviant Artist Semiotext InterviewedDark Matter Magazine is proud to present an interview with Deviant Semiotext. Heres a taste:
I have always drawn pictures but I guess I started to paint a little more for real when I was 14 and read about the Dada-movement in Paris in the 1920s. They got me all hot and panting those brave men and woman. I had to join in. Pretty simple stuff. Everybody has Housegods of some sort or un-other. Mine were Man Ray and Tristan Tzara at the time.
You can check out the rest of the interview here: Artist Blog
I plan on interviewing more talented artists from DeviantArt in the future so stay tuned!
Promoting Art on the Web : Beyond DeviantArtDeviantArt is one of the most vibrant, high-quality art communities on the web. It's a great way to make new friends, get feedback on your work, and find cool new artists. But DeviantArt is just one part of the massive community of artists and art lovers on the Web. In this article, I'm going to show you some easy ways to promote your art and make it easier for new people to find you on the Web.
Website Title and Description
One of the most basic ways people will find your website is through search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Ask. It's tough for the average website to get noticed in these searches, which can return hundreds of pages of search results with millions of websites. The TITLE and DESCRIPTION tags in your web pages play a key role in getting visitors from search websites.
Each of your web pages should have a brief, descriptive title that tells the searcher exactly what's on the page. For instance, instead of making the title of your homepage "My Art", make it "Digital Art
Monthly Theme VOTE and WIN POINTS:icontransparentplz:
All works here http://thefavouriteshowcase.deviantart.com/gallery/29360832
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4
PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery Month
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.
In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!
What is Anime & Manga?
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.
But what is Manga? With Manga you mainly mean a comic book created in Japan. But this word is used for regula

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 1Galleries Month
Traditional Drawings and Paintings
These two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.
Pictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.
JULY + AUGUST: ART FEATURESThese are the featured submissions from the groups UnlimitedAnime-Manga, DrawAnimeArt and Manga-Anime-4ALL for the months of July and August! Check them out & give them love!
And please this journal so that it can reach larger audience, thus giving more exposure to the artists.

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 2Galleries Month
This sub-gallery is for three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions, made by putting together found objects not generally thought of as art materials.
Two-dimensional works made of a combination of other forms, often including photographs, newspaper clippings, or any other type of object which can easily be glued down.
An artistic genre of three-dimensional works, that branching from sculpture, are more about the concept than the form. They are usually designed for a specific site, but can be mobile, to transform how the space is viewed.

Dark Matter's Grim Reaper GalleryThe personification of death as a living, sentient entity is a concept that has existed in many societies since the beginning of recorded history. In Western cultures, death is usually given the name "The Grim Reaper" and shown as a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe, and wearing a midnight black gown, robe or cloak with a hood, or sometimes, a white burial shroud. Usually when portrayed in the black-hooded gown, only his eyes can be seen.

You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
