Sat Aug 19, 2006, 8:27 AM
Thought it was about time a created another Spotlight journal to showcase some new talent to DeviantArt, so without further a do may i introduce Mike Mitchell





His work is beautiful not only in terms of line quality and colouring but also in composition and subject matter, i urge you all to head over to his gallery a gaze at the work on display there, you wont regret it. And if that wasn't enough for you hes also just set up his prints account… so you can enjoy his work in your own home:D

Music that inspires...

Tue Aug 15, 2006, 1:20 PM
Was just thinking the other night how important music is to me when it comes to creating art, i can barely work without it. So ive decided to compile a list of my favourite music tracks in the hope that some of you will be inspired by it also:)

In no particular order:

Strangers by Yoko Kanno - possibly one of my favourite songs ever, it has just about every single instrument on earth with in it, yet they all work perfectly together.

Wicked Game by Chris isaac - A really haunting song.

Cathedral by Thomas Newman - The song i listened to a great deal while painting "Her Silent Silhouette"

Achilles Heal by Toploader - Every time i hear this song im reminded of the day i started digital painting:)

Whisper of a thrill by Thomas Newman - Another beautiful song which invokes a lot emotion, basically anything by Thomas Newman is gold!

Glósóli by Sigur Ros - unique and beautiful with a very powerful…

Stability by Death cab for Cutie - A very long song at 12 minutes, but its time well spent.

Teardrop by Massive Attack - amazing song, lyrics and that piano!

All is full of love by Bjork - A classic.

Dayvan Cowboy by Boards of Canada - Just makes me feel like falling in slowmotion.

Space Lion by Yoko Kanno - is there any type of music this woman hasnt already mastered?!

Reincarnation by Kenji Kawai - The main title theme music to Ghost in the Shell... say no more.

Cyberbird by Yoko Kanno - A really powerful and uplifting song, makes you want to run to the ends of the earth.

Give it away by Zero7 - chilled like no other... :)

Well i think thats enough for now, hope people find some of these songs and are inspired by them as i still am:

Crazy technology!

Tue Jan 3, 2006, 8:19 AM

a friend introduced me to this software called Skype which is basically a free over the net phone service, and unlike MSN voice chat it has crystal clear sound... im trying to persuade friends to use it because my mobile phone bill is getting stupidly big!

go try it out here

no doubt im probably the last to have heard of this software.. sigh

This is just my way of giving some unsuspecting deviant with great potential a nice kick start.

give him a warm welcome and check out his artwork....


If you have a recommendation for the next Secret Spotlight leave a message, remember they must be farely new and their work must show great potential.

right i thought it might be quite cool for me to start this little journal series, where i find new, almost unknown deviants and spotlight them and their work.

I also thought it would be interesting if we kept this a secret from the deviant, hes got only
3 messages on his page, so im sure he would be very suprised to find a flood of new comments and critiques etc on his work....... sooo
