Colin Hutton: Master of Macro Insect PhotographyWe see bugs every day, but we never really take a moment to take a closer look.
The other day I came across Colin Hutton on deviantART, a remarkably talented photographer specializing in "high magnification macro photography of insects and other small creatures." His work is absolutely stunning. The colors, contrasts, and backdrops behind his subjects are simply amazing.
Colin joined deviantART just 3 months ago. Go check out his gallery and watch him!

Spirit Day: Make Your deviantART Avatar Purple!Spirit Day, a commemoration to support LGBT teens who face bullying, is Thursday, October 20th. Many people are participating by wearing purple, while others are participating online. Last year on Facebook, millions of people signed up to change their avatar to purple. DeviantART's 2010 Spirit Day article is the most +loved article of all time on deviantART.
If you'd like to show your support on deviantART, change your avatar to purple!
As Wikipedia states:
"In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010, in which people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT young people who are victims of bullying. Promoted by GLAAD, many Hollywood celebrities wore purple on this day to show their support of this cause, and many w

Artist Draws Comics of Friends' Facebook Statuses~graynate is a US-based artist who illustrates his friend's Facebook statuses. Nate submitted one of his comics to Reddit last night, and it skyrocketed to the front page with over 5,000 upvotes.
An hour after submitting his comic to Reddit, a user requested that he confirm his identity as being the original artist, and challenged him:
"I want to believe OP. But [your account is] 0 days old. So taking today's popular AMA into consideration...draw Adam Savage laughing at a completely shaven Jamie Hyneman."
Nate accepted the drawing challenge, and posted his illustration to Reddit and

Creating Columns by `miontre
Multiple columns are a great way to present your information in a journal skin. Whether you simply want to write text in two columns, or want to do something more advanced with it, columns are a great way to add that little bit extra to your aesthetics!
There is no limit to the number of columns you create, but you need to keep in mind that if you add too many your design will start to look worse on smaller screens. I personally find it's best to stick to two or three columns (though even numbers are much easier to work with). Throughout this tutorial, I'm going to work with three columns.

Forum Stickies UpdateHello everyone!
If you're a forum regular you may have noticed the forum stickies being updated. There are a couple left, but we'll have those up for you as soon as we're happy with how they look.
Also, there's a brand new Need HELP thread that you may find useful even if you're not a forum regular!
We're hoping to make the forums easier to use and understand. Here are some key highlights:
The forum rules are now titled "READ BEFORE POSTING"—we're hoping this will make them more obvious to newbies (thank you `raspil for that suggestion way back when).The first bullet point of every forum refers to FAQ 801, which applies across the board and should be read by everyone before posting a thread. The second one always includes a link to the Need HELP thread (see above for a link, it's super-nifty).Some things that were previously only mentioned in the Deviants Forum are now in :faq801:We've added

Painting by Duong Quoc DInh by ~duongquocdinh
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
pray into my collarbone
let your snake tongue slither
with the syllables.
i wish for soft-chested nights,
and the trickle of champagne down crystal glass.
poppy-lips, lull me to sleep,
nurse my coiling tongue with yours;
tap my scalp like a silent drum,
and wind my hair in between your fingers
like broken guitar strings.
(serenade me with the buzz of pollen in your kiss.)
Keep in Touch!
