What's a Troll?
A troll is a small, brutish creature with a loud, piercing howl. They tend to be found mostly around forums and some chatrooms, but they've been spotted all over deviantART.
Contrary to popular belief, the troll is not an entirely aggressive species. When properly fed and socialized, most trolls are docile, fragile beings as long as they aren't overfed or startled.
Trolls tend to vary in size and stature, but one can usually spot a troll by a few identifying features. First, trolls are generally pale creatures with cramped fingers, which are often seen clenche

One Cat, One Fruit, One Clock Semi-Finalists
Who knew so many creative and unique pieces of artwork could be created using a cat, a fruit, and a clock? Well, we did! Which is exactly why we asked you and harnessed the power of the deviantART community! Some artists mashed up the photos into a stunning photo manipulations, some created paintings and illustrations using the photos as references, and some even created posters for fake movies and products!
In some entries it was obvious which stock photos were used, but it in others, it was almost like a scavenger hunt. You may have to download the full size images to spot them all!
The judges have looked through the entries and selected 25 semi-finalists. From these semi-finalists, three winners will be chosen by the world-wide Chairman of Fotolia, Inc., Oleg Tscheltzoff.
Please note: If during the finalist judging any one of the semi-finalists becomes ineligible or is disqualified under the Official Rules, the semi-finalist judges will replace the disqualified entry with a new

Hello everybody!

Great big significant update on my life: I'm recording a new album which I'm SO excited about! what's even more exciting is that there's a way for all of you to get involved! It's caaaaaalllllled...CROWDFUNDING! You, my crowd of watchers, can make this album a reality! But I don't just want to take your money - you get rewarded for your contributions! Among other things, you can pre-order the album at half price, you can gain access to exclusive bonus tracks that nobody else is going to hear, you can get your name credited in the CD packaging, you can have me dedicate a song to you on my YouTube channel, or you can even have me play a private show in your living room! Check out the little trailer below or click here for more information...

I've got some fantastic guest musicians involved in the album, and Amphitaman is going to be illustrating the CD booklet (go and check out his gallery). The album will feature a bunch of traditional Celtic songs and tunes, a few covers of works by musicians I admire, and about half a dozen of my own original compositions. I can't wait to have you all on board!
