Monthly Contest: Horror and MacabreDear members,
Bi-Monthly Shenanigans #6: WarAt projecteducate we're trying a new type of regular mini contests of sorts where we encourage you to tap into your creative juices and produce some form of art, related to a specific theme or prompt. If you have any recommendations or thoughts on types of contests or challenges you'd like to see, please let us know! The point is that these are quick little contests that also challenge your ability to produce something quickly, so don't fret, we are not expecting masterpieces that would normally take you a month or more to produce.

Autumn Film Challenge!Happy Autumn, deviants! To celebrate the seasons, I've decided to initiate a new quarterly project: a film challenge. Every season will start a new challenge with a new theme related to the season. For those of you in the Upside Down (Southern Hemisphere), you will follow the theme, but not need to worry about the season.

Gray MoodI'm really not in the mood.
I'm carrying around gray crayons
to color up the world in muted tones.
It's my form of adult-onset-pouting.
I can color up the sky
to make it cloudy
and dull down the smile
of the underpaid barista.
There's a perverse kind of pleasure
in scribbling over any obscenely happy
poppy red or daffodil yellow.
Is that pink? Blasphemy!
This must be dealt with.
When everything's a charcoal hue,
I can finally sit down
in a contented grump
and sip the coffee I stirred
with Crayola slate-gray
It's that kind of not-in-the-mood.
rest in pieceshow does it feel to have my heart on your hands?
here lies the best four years of your life
finish what you started, selfish heart-
pick up the shovel and bury me beneath the floorboards
the wind blows through my shadow
let me haunt you like you haunt me
cold bed, here lies love
i slip silently through the walls,
through the cracks,
through the days
this house is a cemetary
My Daily Deviation HighlightsWelcome to a Community Volunteer project in which we will be highlighting our favourite Daily Deviations featured within the recent weeks! We would like to encourage the community to join in on this project by simply going through the Daily Deviations page and collecting some of their favourite pieces of art within a journal titled "My Daily Deviation Highlights"! We hope this project will help spread awareness and love for Daily Deviations and our fellow deviant artists!
Use the hashtag #DDHighlights so we can find your journals!
