So, when we say that we're about helping the unknown... what do we mean? Well, in order to qualify as 'unknown', deviants should meet the following requirements:

    1) They've received fewer than 10,000 page views a year

    2) They've received an average of approximately fewer than 15 favourites per deviation (the number of groups a deviation is submitted to is, however, taken into account)

    3) They've got deviations worth featuring! So no stick-drawings or photographs of your feet. Unless they're very good stick-drawings, or you have very nice feet

We will feature any artist who meets these criteria. They don't have to be a member of helping-the-unknown in order to be featured by us.

Please note that we don't accept self-suggestions. 'Tis better to give than to receive, etc. So please note the group with your suggestions!

Please also be aware that we will not always feature your suggestions. Please don't be disheartened though, and do keep on suggesting!

If you have made a successful suggestion to us, you are welcome to submit to our Suggesters' Artwork folder. Please see this journal entry for more details.

The Gardens of OblivionVerdure stains on light filter to uncompressed earth,
fertilized by broken bones buried in their final berth
and mulch that sighs rhapsodic scents unto torrid, musty air
surrounded by plants so high, low and fair.
Gilded by humus, rainbow colours en-weathered
Untended by savagery yet still unwithered.
Boughs bow with untasted fruit
hoarding tastes of knowledge and thought so acute
bitter-sweet flavours ensconced in lively, liquid pulp
that man can not consume of such with only one gulp.
Removed from time, growth halts, no decay
touches and blemishes leaves left green and gay
Plants ripple their unchanging forms
untouched by swarms of insects, or storms
Perfect as they were once created
on the day that God's lust was sated
Cycadic dreams reminisce of this immemorial age
when man strode about this measureless stage
'fore his departure to diverse other pastures
filed with their own multitudinous disasters
Old Man in the EveningAnd he will sigh and speak no more
of burdens made of gossamer
and the thin tendrils of his thought.
For they are vapid as the wind
and move beyond the earth.
Travelling down the pre-lit paths,
the ghost trails of deadened stars.

murasakiriyu's thoughtful poems flow beautifully, with strong imagery.

We have featured under-appreciated and talented deviants to help get them maximum exposure since 3 May 2009.

When we feature a deviant in a news article, we send them a note to let them know.

We also add one of their deviations to our Collections.

It really is as simple as that! :dalove:
