Artisan Crafts DDs for September 2009September's DDs
Here are all the Artisan Crafts Daily Deviations that were featured for the month of September. Besides this journal feature, there is also the feature news article series on the DDs from the Artisan Crafts gallery and September 2009 is the ninth month in this series because I started the series at the beginning of 2009. The news article includes the DD descriptions and the suggesters' names. I hope you enjoy and Artisan Crafts DDs for September 2009.
If you would like to send a DD suggestion, just send me a note and include its thumb (copy the :thumbxxxxxxxx: code and paste it into your note) and write a short explanation on what it is about the deviation that impressed you so much.

Sept 1 -- "Handable" Series Goblets- by JDilorenzo (Sculpture & Glass)
"It has such a fascinating dark feel to it and such a sinister elegance. I really don't know how to describe it, but I think its most powerful quality is the impressive resemblance to roses, which is also subtle enough to let the mind explore it in several aspects. Those glasses look as if you could drink the most delicious looking poison from them." Suggested by drop-asd.
For the next couple days...I need to switch out that depressing journal and put a more up-beat one in its place. Please go check out Sexy Food. It's Part One to a new feature series on the Culinary Arts gallery and I hope you like it and fave it! What will be Part Two? Well, I've already got a start on both Parts 2 and 3 and I have a pretty good idea what Part 4 should be on. I probably won't be able to post the next one until sometime next month, but it's looking like it's going to be named "Pretty Food." Did I have fun putting Part One together? Why yes, yes I did and I hope you do too and also fave it!
I have tomorrow off from work and because the Rohan: Blood Feud website was down for a couple major upgrades and is finally back up, that's where I'll probably be for the next day or two. If you ha
Sexy FoodThese foods could be equally as good for consoling yourself if you just haven't had luck in getting any lately, but what is there that might pop into your mind if you have to settle for something other than sex, or at least take your mind off it? Chocolate obviously comes to mind, but what about a soul-satisfying serving of prime rare beef, or rustic lamb, or lobster! Or something just sinfully wonderful, appealing to the gourmand in all of us during foreplay (think the bawdy food orgy scene in the 1963 film Tom Jones), during sex, après sex, or instead of sex? Not "comfort food," mind you, but food that tempts you, food that is hearty and lusty, or elegantly and tantalizingly intriguing. These dishes are not pretty or "proper" per se, but are all-out deep, rich, gorgeous, and lusty, and they could possibly be a good accompaniment to a good romp!

Criminally Insane - Therapeutic Treatment EditBoy, do they have some explaining to do
Maybe I'm too personally affected by this. In 1984 when my daughter had barely turned one year old, her father was killed in a car accident and the driver not only survived, but walked away from the accident, pinning the blame on her father and there was never an investigation or trial, which left closure very difficult for the family. Two months later, her father's last employer was judged insane and sent to the same mental institution in Spokane (that Phillip Paul escaped from four days ago) for killing a well-liked man in the community. He was released about 15 years later. In 2002, a 19-year-old boy was determined insane and given a 40-year sentence for the horrific brutal murder of one of my daughter's best friends and a couple years ago I wrote a journal about it on the 5th anniversary of his death. I knew all six men. The three victims were outstanding individuals in the com
For All Artisans... 9-09Singling Out an Artisan for Appreciation, Sept. 2009
This is the fourth month of giving some love and appreciation to members of the Artisan Crafts gallery. Near the middle of every month I will announce the name of one artisan who will receive a one-year subscription. This is not a contest nor a challenge nor an "artisan of the month" kind of thing because it is a gift, not an award, and everyone in the Artisan Crafts gallery is eligible. I troll the galleries of artisans a LOT and I also pay attention to their faving, commenting, journals, featuring, etc. etc. So, how will the artisan be selected? Well, the selected artisan will be someone who...
does not have a sub or whose sub is about to expire
uploads deviations at least somewhat regularly to his/her gallery
comments frequently on galleries of other artists (or on their news articles or journals)
is active in at least one club
features other artists in journals and/or fe
Artisans and Functional Art - August 2009 Featuring Fine Workmanship by Artisans
This is the seventh in this series that features art by members of the Artisan Crafts gallery that I feature daily in one of my journal modules. I add one each day and each is featured for 24-48 hours and then all are featured at the beginning of the next month as a group. These artisan works are found through my casual browsing and they could be very recently uploaded or they could be older works. They could have been made by very well-known artisans, by someone still unknown, or by someone very new to dA. They are random finds, so one gallery might be represented more than another and one artist might get featured more than once in the same month. My picks are totally random finds and that which struck me as something wonderful... I hope you think so, too, and that you enjoy this series!
Artisan Crafts Update - 9-3-09metalsmiths Club is Closing
The metalsmiths club with its very impressive member list of highly skilled metalsmiths is closing in about a week unless someone has the time and dedication to take it over and keep it open. Please contact the club if you're interested. Also, please go here if you're interested in their list of tutorials because apparently they'll be taking that list down by the end of the week if and when the club closes.
Gallery Restructuring Cont'd
If you saw my last journal on the Artisan Crafts category changes, you will have noticed that almost the entire gallery is getting overhauled and will have completely reworked gallery descriptions. Some galleries will be brand new and some will be moving elsewhere within the AC gallery. There has been a LOT of revising done in the last few days, especially with the Jewelry, Folding
Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).
I hope you enjoy it ^__^
A large collection of video tutorials, mainly on human anatomy. Very detailed, to the point, and with visuals that make it easy to follow even for non-native English speakers.

It seems only fitting that we recite the Charge Of The Light Brigade when imagining these otherworldly and battle ready warriors from alternate realms transformed by Daniel’s imagination as they prepare for war. “The Charge of the Light Brigade” a 1854 poem about the Battle of Balaclava (Crimean War) by then Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damned
Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas
Collection: Fall LandscapesShare
There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised… the warming light will soon return.
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”
Interstellar by MachiavelliCro
Who needs enemy aliens — when the oddities of space travel itself are so mind–blowing?
Terraforming 1.1 by Wasteland-3D
s the following gallery of landscapes of deviantARTist–imagined other worlds well attests to — the natural desire of humans to explore and discover knows no bounds, not even the limits of the Earth’s atmospheric shell. Whatever’s out there, beyond our galaxy: we want to put eyes on it. But space travel presents quite a problem.
Collection: Forgotten PastShare
schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting.
“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.”
