pining eyes drawn through minipining eyes drawn through miniblindspining eyes drawn through mini by glue
soaking over street side voices
heavy and wet and soundless
ear marked thoughts peppered in
black eye lessons of gray,
covered in walls and space
suffering in days and eyes in the mirror
perpetual escapist, used to be
shallow, sick and important
knee-deep is waist-high to the neck
compunctious to that which comes
pity or compassion or mystery
World Aids Day 2006 ContestWorld Aids Day is held on December 1st, and internationally recognised as an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS. This year, the theme this year is Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise.World Aids Day 2006 Contest by fourteenthstar
Around forty million people are living with HIV throughout the world - and that number increases in every region every day. Ignorance and prejudice fuel the spread of a preventable disease and we'd like you to join us in a global effort to help put an end to HIV and prejudice by using your creativity and artistic skills.
We're inviting submissions which promote awareness of the way in which HIV affects individuals and families, or which promote positive messages of safer sexual health and relationships. We'll be selecting winners to receive exclusive deviantART World Aids Day Goodies to commemorate the event.
Think about what World AIDS Day means to you. Maybe you are affected by HIV or know someone who is. Maybe you work along side people who are HIV positive and have a st
Emoticon Artists: A Call to Arms!Hey Pixel Freaks and Emoticon Lovers!Emoticon Artists: A Call to Arms! by mattdanna

We will be giving many of those little smiley guys a facelift. I know there has been much effort from the emoticon community to give a "fixing up" to many current emotes we have right now. I was appointed by spyed and the lolly to help you guys out and make this official. Please note, at this point in time, we are only going to be revising current emoticons. Any additions and deletions of emoticons will have to wait for later revisions. But at least this is a start!
So here's the plan. Get yer pencil and gradient tools ready! We'll make this a contest of sorts....Basically, the general rule of the contest is that if you make a revision of a current emote that, by the judges' standards, is better than the current emote, you win! Here's what you win: Your version of th
Non-Existent - An ASCII/ANSI contestI've held two ASCII art contests in the past and there have been plenty of interesting entries, but this time the contest will be bigger and also accept ANSI entries. Even if you have never made ASCII art before, I encourage you to participate. Take the contest as a challenge and don't think you don't stand a chance. The winners of my first ASCII contest hardly had any previous experience with ASCII art.Non-Existent - An ASCII/ANSI contest by diamondie
So what are these ASCII and ANSI things?
Basically, ASCII art is the kind of text art you could create in Notepad or in a typewriter. The characters are equally wide and spaced, as if they were placed in an invisible grid. ASCII can be colored, but it is usually in black and white.

ANSI art is a very specific artform, heavily relying on its restricted medium, the ANSI
