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.

Happy Hop  Welcome to this month’s helping-the-unknown feature! Happy Hop 
Sorry this is a day late! Wifi problems are always so annoying... :stare:




july midnight.days pass in disjointed
chords, blood flowing
down my throat. i am
not a boy whose heart
is stitched.
i am the boy
holding the sutures.
and with every
breath i dare to take,
i hate myself even more
(but the sutures are still
in between my fingers).
clutching the verses
that tell me
this is okay, the string and
filmy aortas
in my hands
create fingerprints
that give me away.
i am not the boy
who cries after
dead girls.
i am the boy
who cuts himself open
at the sight of
joyful daughters
singing midnight choruses
to the dawn.
days pass in honeydew
grey sonatas
and i wonder,
“when can i
stop hurting
and start to help?”
but my earlier words
are set in the baking
fencing my lungs:
i am the boy
holding the sutures.
i am eleven
so i go out to play.
daddy's hand as it
today i am twelve,
i'll be dead.
and i'm okay.

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:
