We define family on DeviantArt as a huge community of deviants spanning the physical globe and reaching into the expression of creativity in many forms by every kind of artist from all cultures.
We are a community of peers which does not make us alike but which enables us to find those with whom we are alike. We have altered the calculus of excellence in the arts to mean the simple act of being a deviant.
These holidays are ones where we celebrate our own families and the future. We give gifts and we welcome a future with hope. And for some, these holidays are ones in which we reach out to others.
We share the nurturing and expression of creativity through this family. But there are so many who may be completely different than we are or exactly the same outside the circle of deviants, as large as it is, living in our local communities as artists who are distant but can be drawn closer simply through recognition.
