Artists join deviantART to share their art and appreciate others. Due to the many artists out there, it's easy to get towed under and generally obscured from the public.

Make a Difference aims to do exactly that. This series of articles will hopefully make a difference to you as well as the artists featured weekly. Just by giving one minute of your time to write constructive comments, favourites and even watches will make a difference to these artists.


:iconalexgphoto: already shows a lot of potential with the many awesome photographs in her gallery! She uses depth of field effectively as well as colours and tones to really make her photos interesting.

:iconscatteredpapers: rhymes wonderfully in many of his poems. He also tackles deep issues and does so with impact from the great phrasing and poignant diction he uses.

A Man of HalvesIt has been months now.
Months, and I am glad you are gone.
Yet, a part of me wishes you remained.
I am a man of halves.
In the middle of the night, I wake,
and your scent lingers in the air.
I find it hard to remember the fights.
Your lies.
Only the cold, cruel knowledge:
your hand shall not grace my cheek again.
I spend my waking moments at war with myself
fighting to conquer the loss - or my escape - of you.
Your things still litter around my house.
Trinkets I cannot bear to throw away.
My poems of love for you line the walls of my heart.
I cannot bear to burn them.
You were heartless,
so you took mine.
~ An extract from A Man of Halves
"I find it hard to remember the fights.
Your lies.
Only the cold, cruel knowledge:"

Problems With the World TodayAll around me life is filled with vacancies
music dominated by wannabe Eminems and Morrisseys
Precognition tells me television is doomed to the ABC's,
the CNN, the Warner Bros, and the NBCs.
They're all that I can see.
They're all these companies,
Faceless masks determined to take a salary -
Expand their treasuries.
These modern day problems in a modern day world
It's hard to keep a focus when your fists are curled.
Keeping hold of pesos, nickles and dimes.
Paying all your worldly bills and all of life's fines.
Nothing means nothing to a modern man,
And your morals tell you to do what you can
if you can, when you can.
But, for me, my enemies sleep within me
And, often, it's hard not to bend the knee
to my weaknesses and failings of not listening
My shortcomings are jewels, they're glistening,
as valuable as my perks - of which I'm sure there are many -
I act a forged smile, I deserve an Emmy
I crack jokes and talk shite with the best of them.
Socially awkwardness is from where that one
~ An extract from Problems With the World Today
"These modern day problems in a modern day world
It's hard to keep a focus when your fists are curled.
Keeping hold of pesos, nickles and dimes.
Paying all your worldly bills and all of life's fines."

PopDad told me, today, that we wear the same deoderant.
It made me feel like I know you a little better.
I've been told I look a little like you, too,
and that me and Dad both have your eyes.
Isn't that funny?
We have your name, too - me and Dad - William.
I like it.
My cousins call you Pop.
My only memory of you is trapped in a photograph on my shelf
and the night you left.
I wish I had known you.
I wonder what you did when you were my age.
Most of the family don't talk about you but I wish they would.
Sometimes it's like they've forgotten.
I used to sit in your chair and pretend I was you.
I wish you had stayed, so I could say I knew you a little.
~ An extract from Pop
"We have your name, too - me and Dad - William.
I like it.
My cousins call you Pop."

:iconloretana: is fantastic at painting portraits and other things too. It is intriguing how colour is applied to bring out certain features, but what is cool about LORETANA's gallery is how much her own style is infused into her artwork.

always love it when you include writers...

What makes it effective is the fact that you only present 3 people... so our attention is focused and doesn't drift from one thing to another. :nod:
