Digital Artists - an old school featureFollowing on from last week's poll, it seems you all want to see features of my favourite artists. That's going to be quite the task as there's so many! So, I figured I would make a selection everyday. First up, I'm going to feature some of my favourite digital artists from the first few years of my DeviantART journey.

My DeviantArt StoryWow, 14 years is such a long time! And as of the 21st, I will have been part of the community for 12 of those years! DeviantArt has seen me through so much, and it's time for me to tell you all a story about it.My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I first found DA when I was in college, writing fantasy short stories and looking for feedback for my (terrible) drawings to go with my words.
To say life was different back then is an understatement, I was in a school I hated, in a relationship I wasn't very happy in, and fighting my boyfriend in said relationship because he did not like my fascination with fantasy or my Internet addiction. It was in no small part because of DeviantArt that I found the courage to end a relationship with the person I thought would be "the one" and face post-college life on my own and made the trek from the frozen, dark lands known as Michigan during fall/winter, and headed back to Texas!

Community Operations Newsletter - June 2014In this, the first of a new, regular newsletter, I'd like to take a moment to give you an overview of the Community Operations department.Community Operations Newsletter - June 20141 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
DeviantART's Community Operations Department encompasses the Help Desk and the Copyright and Etiquette Administration (CEA) teams. These teams are dedicated to providing a high level of support within the community via our help desk portal as well as what we call the "Moderation Desk", which is where all of the deviations that have been reported as being unsuitable or in violation of our policies, await review from a member of staff.
Community Operations Staff are spread out across the globe on a mix of many time zones. Some work from a physical office in deviantART HQ in Los Angeles, some work from their homes in America, Canada, Bahamas, Germany and the UK. This may not sound like a real job, but like any employment, there are clearly laid out roles and responsibilities as well as continuous supervision to ensure that people are meeting expectati
Photo Editing in LinuxFor anyone interested, Ive done considerable amounts of experimentation with building photographic workflows on Linux.Photo Editing in Linux2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After trying just about every base system, window manager, and editing tool in the open source world, Ive come up with something that I personally really like, is really stable, and the tools all work well together.
So if you have wondered at all what works and what doesnt in a production capacity, I wont tell you what you "should" use, Ill just tell you what works for me.
Base system: Debian stable. Yeah I know, Ubuntu has better repos, Arch has newer packages, etc etc. I have built all of these and used them and I have had the fewest interoperability issues with Debian. It runs like a rock. Ubuntu runs hot, and uses ALOT more memory at idle than almost any other system Ive tested. The memory spikes when launching and using multiple photo apps can cause editors to freeze up. Mageia Linux is pretty nice, but there are still some issues. and I tend to think apt-get is a
For My Own SafetyAnnouncing The Fan Fiction Article. Fan art and fan fiction, like the offering above, are a blast because artists get to wear their favorite stories; in my case the iconic "Blade Runner." Fan fiction and art are the new fashion.For My Own Safety4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I prefaced a recent article Eye See Therefore Eye Am,
with a quote from Roy Batty, the doomed replicant (android) who was given human emotions to be able to appreciate
all the wonders of life, including the visual, but afforded only four years of
lifespan to enjoy them.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost
in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."

> Please introduce yourself, in your own words. What are your interests?
The standard boilerplate is that I am a technologist, a wonk, and an artist. I’ve been practicing at that last role (read: making some or all of my income via creative output) for over 20 years. My interests are sort-of all over the map, but on paper probably make as much or as little sense as those of anyone else. Because I like Top-X lists, here's one:
1. Music. I'm currently the owner a 5-figure collection of releases that go from the super-accessible bubblegum of the day to complete bonkers fringe noise, on cd/vinyl/cassette/ogg/mp3 and 8-trac

A request...As many of you know, I play percussion in a local community brass band. We recently made history when we competed in the Regional Championships and won our section -- then later on in the day, our Intermediate band (which is mainly made up of young players and people returning to playing after a long break) competed and won their section too. This is a unique achievement in the history of banding and we're really excited by it.A request...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Winning the Regionals means we have been invited down to Cheltenham, in England, to play at the Nationals in September. The Senior band are also competing a the European Championships in May this year, which is a huge accolade for us.
Attending the Nationals is going to cost in excess of £9000, and therefore it's a mammoth fundraising task for us - but we are determined to do it. I've set up a fundraising page for the band for anyone who wants to support us reaching such a prestigious event. If you want to be part of such a unique event in the
Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This
