faith in the world below by equivoque

On Friday, September 12th, 2014, Elinor (equivoque) lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer.  For those that aren't familiar with Elinor, I'd like to take a moment to share her with you.

Elinor joined deviantART back in 2005 and quickly established herself as someone to watch.  Her use of the unconventional polaroid, sent a strong message that it wasn't about your equipment, at a time when digital was all the rage.

Elinor, a vibrant part of this community, spent just over a year as a dedicated member of our volunteer team. Her passion for people and photography endeared her to many.

tattered remnants of longing by equivoque

In 2013, Elinor was a participant in the Boston Marathon and was about a mile short of finishing before she came to a police barricade.  Two explosions had gone off at the finish line, killing three people injuring more than 200.  She vowed to complete the race in 2014 but was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in January.  For those that knew Elinor, you will know that she was a strong-willed, passionate fighter and that's exactly what she did.  Despite the treatments leaving her frail, she was determined to complete what she started.  On April 21, she showed up for a specially arranged final-mile walk to the finish line, and achieved her goal.

To get to know Elinor a little more, please take time to visit her gallery on deviantART and her Facebook page.  She also kept a journal here.

Her loss is heartbreaking and my thoughts go to her family and close friends at this time.  However, she will live on in our memories and through her beautiful photography.

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
It is not often we bestow deviousness upon someone who is already a member of staff, but sometimes you need to bend those rules when there are exceptions to the rule like $Moonbeam13. She has been heading up the crew of Gallery Directors as head of Artist Relations for going on a year now, listening to suggestions from the community, enacting her own ideas, getting input from the volunteers, and bringing you massively cool contests. And that’s just some of the things she gets done in a single day. It is with great pride and a huge vote of “thanks” that we give deviousness to $Moonbeam13 on the verge of our 6th Anniversary!

I suppose I can suggest Daily Deviations to you, right? So yes, here you go~
This is a deviation by :iconinemasterkart:…
I really loved the above piece the very first time I saw it. It's not just a simple portrait of a pop legend but a painting that reflects innumerable feelings and thoughts. I feel that the idea is quite creative, as the person whom we can see in this picture is so deeply engrossed in his work, that we can almost see though him. This is a feel-good piece, and is pleasing to the eye.
Moreover, the person whom we can see in the picture, Michael Jackson, left the world five years back. I think it would be good if this piece becomes a daily deviation, as then more people could see it, and stop for a moment to think about an icon whom the world would never forget.
Thank you so much,
Have a great day~

Hey, you're the guy who gives DD's right?  Well, I found this particular artwork (it's not mine of course XD)  and well... when I saw this piece and I was just blown away with the fact that it was done with only pencils. This artist has some extreme talent and deserves much more attention that what they get at present.
