Shining Stars Of Deviantart by ArtByCher

Donald

When everything's working right, you become transfixed by the notes and chords and the beautiful spaces in between. In the center of it, with the drums, bass and guitar all around you, the earth falls away and it's just you and your crew creating this forward motion, this undeniable, magical stuff that can move ten thousand people to snap free of life's miseries and get up and dance and scream and feel just fine.
Wait, I'm in too good a mood. Somebody, stop me, please.

– DONALD FAGEN, EMINENT HIPSTERS; 2013 DONALD FAGEN

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
Where to begin with the reasons for selecting `sphilr for this month's deviousness award. How about with his passion for all things art. If you want to see someone who lives and breathes the concept, you don't have to look any further. He has spent his entire life honing his unique and easily identifiable style. You can look at what he does and just get that sense that he is the type of person who wakes up needing to create something. His journals reflect that passion as well. Additionally they provide a bit more insight to the soul of this individual. Showing a compassionate and giving nature which can then be further glimpsed through his positive and supportive commentary. `sphilr is the real thing and we are proud to add him as a recipient for deviousness this July!
-awarded July 2007
