As a statement of empowerment and artist prestige, we're pleased to reveal deviantART's official poster for Artists’ Alley at San Diego Comic-Con – designed by the exquisitely talented Artgerm!

DeviantART couldn't be more excited to sponsor Artists' Alley for the fourth year in a row.  Our aim has always been to keep focus on those who not only make the entire convention possible, but provide us with a world of entertainment across all media: the artists.

Go forth and march with your creative brethren!

Spread the word!

Arm yourself with the above image.  Plaster the poster on the walls of your bedroom or school, share the image across social media, design mash-ups and remixes to be submitted back online, or make print-outs and start your own local art revolution.  (The image is available for any use, as long as it's non-commercial and in the spirit of deviantART.)

What is art?

In keeping with artist solidarity, we want to hear what art means to you! 
  • Is art what gets you up in the morning?
  • Is it what you live and breathe?
  • Is it a way to connect with friends across the globe?

Leave a comment and finish the sentence, “Art is __________.”

This week we're doing ABC poems! 

We're spending this week reviewing our alphabet and testing out our poetry skills! Your task is to write a poem or story in the ABC style!

  • Write an ABC Poem or story - the topic is up to you!
  • Make it at least ten lines (A-J). If you like, you can go through the whole alphabet.
  • Five deviants will be selected to receive 400 points each! Entries will be judged on creativity and overall impact.
  • All entries must be in Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles time.

An ABC poem is when the first word of line 1 begins with an A, the first word of line 2 begins with a B etc. For example:

An Amazon python
Biding his time
Came out of the tree 
Dangling by his tail
Evenings he spent 
Fearful and strong
Going on his way through the forest
He's on an adventure.. 

Isn't this fun? Happy creating, deviants!
