Journal Entry: Sat Jun 9, 2012, 8:47 AM

Welcome



:+fav: If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.

Features & Fun is a new series which focuses on the light-hearted side of deviantArt. We hope to showcase a variety of art, artists, as well as indulge in some random silliness, games, trivia, and more. This article is coordinated by Mirz123, but will also feature picks of various contributors, as well as selections by the community.

This time around, users were asked to share their favorite "funny" emoticons. To see the poll and check out who chose what, click here.

Group Spotlight



:iconplay-with-your-food: Play-With-Your-Food is a fun group.  Unlike what the name suggest, the group does not endorse food fights. It does, however, feature pieces where food is displayed in fun and silly ways. Founded by Ravenswd, the group always puts a smile on my face.

All Over the Map



pixiepot was in dAmn recent, noting how you can create sentences purely using dA usernames.  For the sake of random silliness, that got us started and we thought we'd try a few phrases...

EVERY good boy does fine
May the force be WiTH you
batman versus joker

News



:bulletred: If you have some fun news, contests, or other dA happenings you'd like to share, drop us a note and we'll add it to the next edition.

:bulletred: A publication schedule has not been set for this article series yet, but we hope to publish once or twice a month.
