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.

Still life by gorzkaczekoladka Old painting by gorzkaczekoladka

gorzkaczekoladka has a beautifully light, gentle style; her paintings seem to be suffused with light. A browse through her Gallery shows that she is a talented photographer as well.

blackberrynature's tumor of
singular black globulars
turns sweetly in mouths
stars, ~the lacuna light.
so many infinities
beyond simple eyes

sea-ebony's poems are short and simple, and all the more powerful for it. Her work will make you think, and then go back for another read.

DeTea's fractals are beautifully mesmerising to look at.

christmas wave  Welcome to this month’s helping-the-unknown feature! christmas wave 

It's a little bit early to be saying this, but Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays! 




Eternali. In psychology, association is defined as a connection of ideas, memories or feelings between each other or events.
Melissa once had birds in her feet.
She knows it because they were stolen. All she has left are the brittle bones and marks that might have been left by feathers, light as a dove’s trace. It’s painful. It makes it hard to walk, and she’s always walking.
When The Others took over the city, people like Melissa suffered greatly. People who had pretty birds and other things to lose. But now The Others have lost control to bandits and fledgling rogue groups. The rest of the citizens are just drifting. There’s no government, no power, no clamp to grip the city and squeeze productivity out of it like a dying machine.
So Melissa walks. She trails along the sides of the streets where girls like her could never walk before, smiling in the open sunlight but never forgetting her mission. She walks to track down the thieves who wronged her. She
In a world where there are bats and OctobersIt’s after five p.m., I haven’t had caffeine since midday, and talking to strangers is as appealing as swallowing warts.
It’s early October and the evening sky is alight with orange. It’s the kind of orange that tells tales of the bushfire season roaring into life; the kind of orange you can smell. I shift on the bench at the bus stop, hoping to evade what I can of the conversation that the guy beside me has struck up like a match.
“You were born on Halloween?” he asks, gawking as if it’s some incredible thing. I shouldn’t have told him. It’s a deep dark secret, that.
“Yeah.” My bus should be here soon. I stare down the road.
“And you look like a pumpkin!” He slaps his knee. “That’s, what. That’s serendipity. Yeah.”
It’s not serendipity. I don’t even slightly resemble a pumpkin. I glance at him and smile. Smiling scares people sometimes. I should know. I do it a lot.


bonfirelights' writing is very readable and well written.

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:
