About a week ago, I posted a journal called Where to find me. It started with "I'm not really here at the moment" and I wasn't. I haven't been. I wanted to be, but I didn't know how to be in a way that didn't feel like a crushing obligation. Being a Community Volunteer for years was an amazing experience, but there were negative parts. Not negative parts of the role itself, but side-effects, things that happened as a result of being visible in that way. Those parts ranged from mildly creepy to genuinely upsetting to "Holy fucking shit, can this please just stop now?" It wasn't a case of simply ignoring things or blocking people (blocking sometimes makes things worse when you're in a position of facilitation and people feel entitled to your attention, regardless of their behaviour). It was an unpleasant environment to exist in, but it got unpleasant slowly, in that way where you don't really notice it happening.

Anyway. It wasn't just that. It was also my message centre feeling overwhelming and awful. I unwatched about half the people I used to watch (I still feel like shit for doing that, which speaks loudly to the whole crushing obligation thing) to see if that made a difference, but it didn't. I still felt like anything less than fully interacting with everyone's everything wasn't enough and that any lack of reciprocity on my part was ungrateful. It was also something about expectation. When you've been in a role for a long time that involves helping, organising, administrating, and other forms of active giving-to and doing-for other people, that becomes expected even when you're no longer in that role. It's hard to step away from it all without feeling like an asshole. Saying no is difficult, especially when saying it once isn't enough.

I've been thinking a lot about what I actually want from my DA experience. I want to share my words and pictures and connect with other creative people who are sharing the things they make. That's pretty much it. I honestly couldn't give a shit about validation, approval, or critique, constructive or otherwise. That's hard to explain because it sounds like just not wanting to hear anything negative, which isn't the case. If someone wants to comment on something I post here to tell me they hate it, fair enough. I mean, it seems like a waste of their time and energy, but I care surprisingly little about whether people like or dislike what I do. I've done art as education and work, and other people's opinions really mattered then because they affected my grades, and later, my income. Now I'm doing art as love and healing and joy and passion and all those wonderful things that have nothing at all to do with anyone else's opinion of my technical proficiency, tools, subject, genre or style.

So I figured maybe it was worth trying to be here in a way that didn't feel like a few thousand hands pushing down on my shoulders. I know I don't owe anyone an explanation, but this is all stuff I need to say because...just because. I wrote an info thing for my profile page that expresses pretty clearly what my presence here these days is about. I'm going to copy it into the bottom of this journal. Then I'm going to go schedule a bunch of stuff I've written and photographed over the last couple of months to share here. You can look at it or not. You can comment on it or not. You can fave it or not. If you're looking or commenting or faving only because you feel like you should, please don't. You don't owe me.

What's real and meaningful is what's left behind when you're no longer useful. I'm looking forward to finding out what that is :heart:


_____________________


The info thing from my profile page:


ABOUT...

...ME


I'm a recreational artist. I do what I do, the way I do it, because it makes me happy. Creation is its own reason and its own reward. I share what I make because I find value in that as a connection with other creative people. I'm not here to give or receive instruction or validation.

In a past life, I went to college for photography and worked as a professional photographer. I ran a studio and taught photography, and I mostly took photographs of people. Now I mostly take pictures of nature and places and things, sometimes with a dSLR and sometimes with my phone, because I'm not selling anything and the tools don't matter.

I've written for organisations and publications, and I've worked in communications. Now I write because I have stories to tell and I find soul-deep fulfilment in exploring inner and outer worlds, in wrapping words around both real-life and fictional experiences and setting them adrift.

I’m a deeply passionate creative living advocate and I believe art is for everyone, always. Seriously. Just make stuff.

...MY DEVIANT LIFE

I've been on DA since 2005. I've been a senior member since 2007 and was given the Deviousness award in March 2012. I'm grateful for both of those things, because they're genuinely lovely, but I didn't ask for them and they don't govern my perspective or position.

Between 2008 and 2019, there were only two years when I wasn't a Community Volunteer. I neither had, nor wanted, the authority or influence people assumed I had. The visibility involved in that role was an unfortunate side-effect of the opportunity to facilitate creative growth for other artists.

Right now, I'm not here to organise events, administrate groups, judge contests, run projects, or teach anyone anything. I finally get to assert my personal boundaries and I don't owe anyone time, energy or attention. If you're not OK with that, I'm not your people.

...COMMENTS AND OTHER STORIES

Comments are disabled on my older work because I don't need to hear what some rando thinks about a photo I took in 2005.

While comments are enabled on some more recent submissions, I'm not actively seeking feedback. If you have something to say, go for it, but it's not necessary and other people's subjective opinions don't impact how or what I create.

A fave or collection add is a perfectly acceptable way to express enjoyment of something. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to comment on my work, because experiencing art shouldn't be about obligation. Just enjoy it. Or don't. Then go make stuff.
I'm not really here at the moment, but I am in these places...

I post photos, writing and blog-shaped things at TanyaSimoneSimpson.com
I share words, pictures and ephemeral life fragments on Twitter and Instagram.
I'm also on Pinterest because I like the aesthetic dreamworld, but I don't use it socially.

Also, I have a new book out. You can download it here.
It's called Winter Follows. It's queer and violent and full of drugs.
It's free, but you can send a gift through Ko-fi or PayPal if you like.

Later, creators :heart:

Community Week


If you've seen any interviews with Community Volunteers, you've probably witnessed these lovely humans answering questions relating to their favourite thing about DA, what inspires their art and what made them want to join the Community Relations team. So, in the spirit of tradition, I'm...nope, no tradition, I'm going to ask about food and llamas. Because that's the important stuff, right?
Thanks to Astralseed, burningmonk, C-91, DrZime, Ellysiumn, JenFruzz, JessaMar, LenamoArt, LiliWrites, morbidman187, phoenixleo, pinkythepink, Queen-Kitty, SinistrosePhosphate, TheGalleryOfEve, Thiefoworld and TokyoMoonlight for contributing to this extremely important piece of serious investigative journalism.





Do you currently share your home with any other humans and/or animals?


I currently share my home with my two kiddos, RezaBisuto and a smelly dog, two broken cats, and a spiffy ass lizard!

burningmonk
I live together in Tokyo with my fiancé.

C-91
I live with my parents. I don't own any (furry) pets because I'm allergic. :)

DrZime
Four dogs and four cats.

Ellysiumn
Ja, with my parents and my pets. My brother is at home too but he works in Berlin, so he is not much with us right now.

JenFruzz
I do! I live with my boyfriend (I met him on DA, actually! His username is Gaidenlight and he isn't active enough for my liking pffft). We have a wee hellion of a kitten named Jazzy who is both lovable and the spawn of Satan all at once :D

JessaMar
Yes. I live with my partner Rick, our two dogs, our hedgehog, and a few thousand mealworms. And I guess probably the various mites and spiders and whatnot that are in every home.

LenamoArt
I live with my amazing husband and awesome 5 year old son. Together, we take care of our dragon (agama), three adorable fluffy bunnies and a lot of fishes!

LiliWrites
I live with my husband and father, plus three kitties. Or is it really that we live with the kitties? :lol:

morbidman187 
I share a home with my Mom, Dad, Brother, 2 dogs and a lot of snakes, lizards, scorpions, tarantulas and other creatures. 

phoenixleo
Yes.

pinkythepink
I live with my mom and brother and one toasty cat.

Queen-Kitty
Not currently! Sometimes being alone is nice (I get to dance around in my PJs and sing loudly and off-key), but it can get lonely sometimes.

SinistrosePhosphate
Yes! I live in my parents’ basement as I wait for my own apartment to be built. It’s slow-going at this moment, but the hole in the ground is getting bigger!

TheGalleryOfEve
Yes, I live with my FIRST husband :stare:

Thiefoworld
I want a dog! It will be the most fluffiest and cutest one and I'll name them Peanut.

TokyoMoonlight
Let's pretend I didn't see this. XD No comment.





Do you own any clothing, plushies or other DA paraphernalia from back in the devWEAR days?


Astralseed
I actually own a fair bit of devWEAR.  I probably have 10 or more shirts, 2 fella plushies, one super llama plushie, a few lanyards, some buttons, some stress balls, the camera bag, the camera strap, stickers and probably some other odds and ends I can't recall right now.  

burningmonk
No, but I wish I did! :)

C-91
Yes! I happen to own a Fella plushie. :D It's somewhere in the house. I have to retrieve it before it's too late. :grump:

DrZime
I don't. ;-;

Ellysiumn
No.

JenFruzz
I didn't get it back in the devwear days but when I went to HQ last year we got some sweet DA gear! One of which is an old school green sharpie with the beloved old logo on it :heart: :heart:

JessaMar
Nah.

LenamoArt
Unfortunately not.

LiliWrites
I wish! I didn't think devWEAR would disappear like it did, so I never got any. I see it listed on eBay sometimes though. So I might still snag a piece in the future.

morbidman187 
I have a t-shirt, a few hats and a lot of smaller stuff like stickers, keychains, pins and lanyards. 

phoenixleo
I don't have all of the few items I had at that time since they have been used a lot.






pinkythepink
I own a DA beanie with an old logo. I wore it circa 2008.

Queen-Kitty
I have a Fella plushie that another deviant sent me on my birthday one year :heart: It's one of my very favorite possessions!

SinistrosePhosphate
Dear me, no. I wish I did, though.

TheGalleryOfEve
I do!!! :la: I have t-shirts (which never fit me, so I've already promised Queen-Kitty that as soon as I find them from wherever they are, I'll send them to her :XD:). I also have lanyards and a laptop backpack :heart:

Thiefoworld
Yes! I have a box cap, a few tshirts, a Fella plushie and some bags, lanyards, stickers. So... just a few things.

TokyoMoonlight
No, I don't.





If you could have any starter, main course and dessert in the world, what would you choose?


Astralseed
Food? I am not much of a food fan. I'd be happy to live my life not having to eat D:

burningmonk
Starter: Fried calamari with marinara sauce; Main: Perfectly cooked steak; Dessert: Tiramisu.

C-91
Cheese and cold-cuts plate, meat ravioli and tiramisù. My choices are pretty common. :B

DrZime
I just like a main course to be honest - them lo mein noodles are pretty good.

Ellysiumn
Maultaschen and almond ice cream.

JenFruzz
I read "starter" and definitely thought this was going to be a Pokemon question (in which case the answer would be Charmander). But since we now speak of food, I would say my favorite starter is mozzarella sticks (mmm gooey cheese ALL DAY), followed by a main course of prime rib or parmesan crusted chicken, followed by crème brûlée...YUM!!!

JessaMar
I don't know, but I know it would be all things I'd never tried before.

LenamoArt
Hard choice, but I would love to recreate a dinner I had with my husband when he asked me to marry him <3 A board of cheese with dried fruits as a starter. Clams in white wine sauce as a main course. Creme brulee as dessert.

LiliWrites
Starter: Butternut squash soup (it goes with anything); Main: Beef Wellington prepared by Gordon Ramsey; Dessert: Baklava made with honey and pistachios (saw it on The Great British Bake Off and it looks so yummy!)

morbidman187 
Ooey Gooey Chewy Sundae. Described as "Fresh baked brownie and rich vanilla ice cream drenched in cajeta and homemade chocolate kahlua sauces, topped with crushed oreo cookies and whipped cream" I haven't had one in years but it is always one of those ridiculous childhood things that I love. 

phoenixleo
I am going to change my mind after I have answered so I am not going to answer it. :grump:




pinkythepink
It's boring, but I'm a picky eater. Chicken noodle soup.

Queen-Kitty
Ooh this is a difficult question. I love food! So, this is going to be entirely random things from some of my favorite local restaurants that don't really go together. For a starter, I would choose the chickpea fries from Carmel's. My local one closed after I had them only once and I was absolutely gutted when I found out. They were topped with this tomato jam and curry aioli that was incredible. For the meal, I would get this short rib ramen bowl that one of my favorite local restaurants, Craft Street Kitchen, did for a couple of weeks. They have new stuff on their menu all the time for specials, but this one was soooo good that I'm sad to think I might never have it again. For dessert it's a toss-up between this amazing pear and lavender pie that I had from a little local bakery in Julian, California five or so years ago or a really great crème brûlée.

SinistrosePhosphate
That’s a tough question! I will eat almost anything! Wait…I have to answer this, really?
OK…since you asked…Newfoundland crab cakes for starters, because the place is like a second-home to me. For the main…bring on the Chinese dishes! As for dessert, frozen lychee (I am not joking…you freeze these little guys in the freezer for a day or two and eat them like that. There’s nothing else like that in the world)

TheGalleryOfEve
My starter would be crab cakes (:noes: which I can't eat anymore since I became allergic to that stuff :grump:); my main course would HAVE to be my Grandma's gnocchi :hungry: and my dessert would be "Sambayón" flavored ice cream from my favorite store in Argentina :hungry:

Thiefoworld
Taquitos forever!

TokyoMoonlight
A soup! I love soups. Probably any kind, though I try to avoid a mushroom one. Main course? Hmm...nothing specific, so how about some pork meat on the grill, rice and potato (probably dollar potato) and different kinds of vegetables.  And the meat or the potato covered in some spicy seasoning would be perfect. For dessert, for sure an apple strudel.





What's your favourite site-wide event, project or prank ever to happen on DA?


Astralseed
The Holiday Card Project always stands out to me. I also always enjoyed the Valentines card exchange. DA's birthday is also usually a lot of fun. If we're talking pranks, I think the April Fools prank with General Whiskers was my favorite.  It was really fun seeing everyone uploading cat photos that day!

burningmonk
I enjoyed the introduction of Llama badges. :D

C-91
I'm pretty fond of projecteducate. As for the pranks, I loved the fake tutorials and I was very upset that I had stepped down shortly before that April Fools. :stare:

DrZime
The Mudkips thing was fun. :D

Ellysiumn
I like all the events!

JenFruzz
I really loved the Sketch This challenges, though they were a bit short lived. That was such a fun project and I loved seeing what the community came up with for each challenge. Prank wise... Thought Art was one of my favorite April Fools jokes on DA. Personally, I am partial to the prank we played in #ThumbHub chat a couple years ago where we turned random artworks in the chat into the picklecat gif :lmao: See this screenshot. It was a hilarious day:

JessaMar
The annual Critmas event represents to me some of the best things about DA.

LenamoArt
Apart from lovely ideas like Christmas cards, I think the fan art generator was my favourite one. I spent hours just on checking possible combinations! Perfect for people struggling with lack of inspiration. And we all know that feeling when we want to draw something but there is nothing in our mind, right?

LiliWrites
There was that one time we all had our profile pictures changed to characters from Twilight for April Fool's Day. :lmao: I was team Edward. *sparkles moodily*

morbidman187 
The Mudkip April Fools, because I was less active at the time and it annoyed a lot of people while I felt nothing. 


phoenixleo
The April Fool Prank with the avatars being changed and teams forming for Team Edward, Team Jacob, Team Seeker. Team Edward! :iconsuperw00tplz:

pinkythepink
I wouldn't call it my favorite realllllly, but the mudkipz thing was memorable at least.

Queen-Kitty
The mudkips from April Fools Day 2008! You'd think it would be the cat overlord one, but the mudkips were just so memorable. So i herd u liek Mudkips?

SinistrosePhosphate
My personal favourite are the April Fool’s Day pranks (the most recent favourite is the Netflix cross over, “DeviantArt Originals.” I just love the concept!) But the one that I stand behind is an initiative by Mrs-Durden to connect artisan crafters to a wider commissions audience by showcasing who they are and what they do in a newsletter format. You can find the first instalment here. A lot of artists use their art to make a living. Something like this means a lot to me because I want to support these artists. Everyone’s entitled to a stable and financially-solvent lifestyle, and to help everyone who wants to achieve this goal is something important to me.

TheGalleryOfEve
My favorite site-wide event is the Christmas Card project because it brings a lot of joy to so many people who have to be in a hospital during the holidays, and my favorite prank ever done was the 2012 April Fools prank called "Feline Overlords Takeover" :giggle: You can read about it here :giggle: Ay, ay, ay, that year they really got me with that!!! :XD: I got so panicky that I went ahead and opened a ticket with the Help Desk :giggle: My deviations started randomly changing into images of amazing cat illustrations :omg::omg::omg: :XD: Which were amazing and all that, but which almost gave me a mini heart attack, thinking they had hacked my account and stolen all my ugly artworks!!! :giggle::XD:  So yeah, that's my favorite :stare::stare::stare:

Thiefoworld
The Mudkip avatars from April 1st 2008 is still my favorite Aprils Fool prank ever. It made so many people mad! lol

Mudkip Day by PurpelBlur

TokyoMoonlight
Because it was my first time ever to join the Holiday Card Project, I would say this. But I mostly like those little events or projects run by a group or an individual deviant. It just feels more personal to me.





Tell us about one of your hobbies, pastimes or areas of interest that has nothing to do with your job, your art or your formal education.


Astralseed
I've been trying to teach myself Japanese.  It's such a fascinating language.  

burningmonk
Video games! It's the one thing I love doing simply for entertainment. Totally unproductive, but it gets my mind off things. These days it's all PC gaming for me, but I'm thinking of getting a Switch.

C-91
I collect celebrative 2-Euro coins. Every year, the EU countries are allowed to mint special coins to celebrate an event or an anniversary, or simply a famous character (fictional or real). My favorites are the Spanish 2-Euro coin with Don Quixote and the German Länder Series, in which every coin comes with a representation of a famous building of one of the German federate states. :D

DrZime
Hiking, riding my bike, watching movies.

Ellysiumn
Listen to music, watch Rormula 1, play with PS4 and meditate with incense.

JenFruzz
Horseback riding! I've ridden since I was a teenager. I used most of the money from my first job to afford the lessons, haha. It was always a source of stress relief, fun, and challenge for me. It helped me learn a lot of self discipline, teamwork, and even management (since I ran my college's equestrian team for four years!).

JessaMar
I assume some eyebrows may have been raised at the mealworm reference above. For the past year or so I have kept a small mealworm farm. I got interested in them as snacks for my hedgehog, but I produce a lot more than she can eat, so I also eat them myself (delicious in fried rice) and process them into dog treats.

LenamoArt
I'm a gamer! I play all kind of games: video, boardgames, card games, and classic pen and paper RPG. I have a lot of wonderful games-related memories from the times when I used to raid in MMOs and from RPG meetings. I've met some of my best friends thanks to the games we played together. Nowadays, I have tons of duties and very little time for playing, so I simply choose games I can play with my family!

LiliWrites
I like to play Guild Wars 2. It's the only MMO that's ever interested me, much to the disappointment of my gamer husband.

morbidman187 
I am kind of obsessed with baking right now, I think about it a lot more than I have been doing it but I have been trying to force myself to try baking new things lately. 


phoenixleo
I like jumping from one hobby/pastime to the other. Currently, it's watching various animal videos, mostly funny and cute. :iconmeowlaplz:



pinkythepink
Video games. If I could hold a controller and sew at the same time, I would. Finding the time for both is increasingly difficult.

Queen-Kitty
Gardening! I am more than a little self-taught, so I make lots of mistakes and just try to learn as I go. I really love plants, especially flowering ones and ferns. Currently, I'm working towards learning more about growing roses. I planted some new bare-root roses this year and I'm working towards making them thrive more than last year's (last year I got blackspot on the majority of them and didn't really know how to control it). I installed a soaker hose in the rose bed, and I'm hoping that's going to be the key to my success as well as regularly fertilizing them with organic fertilizer. My grandparents got me a tumbler composter for Christmas and I'm trying to figure out that as well. Plants bring a lot of happiness to me and while I can't "control them" per se, it does me a lot of good knowing that the work I put into it is what, in the end, creates success.

SinistrosePhosphate
Just one, really? I love going to conventions! I don’t sell anything that I make, so going to conventions is just purely for the fun of it. I love watching cosplayers and I love to chat up artists in the artist alleys. And in those moments who I am and what I do (both my day job and my position here on DA) do not matter. I get to meet a lot of new people and discover some truly amazing artists that way!

TheGalleryOfEve
Well, I've recently started taking a LOT of interest in jewelry making, metal jewelry in particular :eager: So I'm currently learning as much as I possibly can about metalsmithing :love: So I'm hoping to be able to publish my jewelry line really soon :happybounce: :eager: :woohoo:

Thiefoworld
I love to sleep! And I've been told I'm very good at it.

TokyoMoonlight
Watching documentaries! Lots of different topics like history, mystery/unsolved things, crime stories, aliens etc. Gardening (flowers, shrubs and small trees)...which is another extension of my creativity. And something that forces me to stand on my two legs and move around.





How many llamas have you given and received?


Astralseed
164,959 badges sent and 35,708 badges received.

burningmonk
I haven't checked in a long time and don't know how to check on Eclipse.

C-91
I have given 5,276 llamas and received 3,593.

DrZime
858 sent and 1,625 received.

Ellysiumn
I sent 588 and I received 38,313 llamas.

JenFruzz
Received...5,859 and given 3,858. I should probably give some more out. :shifty:

JessaMar
Received 306, given 31.

LenamoArt
I have received over thousand llamas, but I have never gave any. Probably because I'm buying points only as a reward for the contests I host.

LiliWrites
Uhhhh, given? No idea. I don't really do the llama thing. I have a fancy llama badge, so I've been given however many it takes to get there.

morbidman187 
I have given 4 and received 1,730


phoenixleo
As of writing this reply, 1,909 badges sent and 2,987 badges received.

pinkythepink
32,059 badges sent and 6,389 received.

Queen-Kitty
As of the time I've typed this, I've received 2,390 llamas and I've given 2,125 llamas.

SinistrosePhosphate
I have completely lost count of how many llamas I have given. I have received 1445 at the time of writing.

TheGalleryOfEve
At the time I'm writing this :stare: (3/19/19, 2:14 pm, EST) :stare: I've given 128,582 llamas :typerhappy:  and I've received 100,000 :love::heart: (thank you guys!!! :happycry:)

Thiefoworld
Let's just say I've given way less than Astralseed.

TokyoMoonlight
For sure I gave more than received. Current status: 3,822 badges sent, 1,726 badges received.





What song would play over the end credits in the movie of your life so far?


Astralseed
Galileo Galilei - ゴースト

burningmonk
One More Time by Daft Punk

C-91
There are quite a few songs that I like, so maybe I'd make more than one movie. Let's go with The Safety Dance for now. :XD:

DrZime
It'd have to be something boring - my life is pretty run of the mill. X'D Maybe one of those crappy pop songs from the movie, 'Twilight'.

Ellysiumn
Any composition by Hans Zimmer

JenFruzz
Anything from the Game of Thrones soundtrack for sure. If my life isn't epic enough to warrant this, at least the music would make me feel like it was. HAHA.

JessaMar
Bad Shoes Blues, by The Mammals

LenamoArt
I was thinking about it for longer than I would like to admit. But I think "Your Song" sang by Ellie Goulding would be the best. I don't usually listen to this kind of music, but this song reflects how grateful I am for my life and my family.

LiliWrites
Be Yourself by Audioslave

morbidman187
The Tear Garden - With Wings

phoenixleo
No music. :meditate:

pinkythepink
Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With by King Crimson

Queen-Kitty
Another difficult question! Hmmm, for the end credits, it would probably be the song that has been my ringtone for a long time now. It's called "Perfect (In My Mind)" by Gold Motel. Greta Salpeter is singing about the world crashing in around her, but that she still sees the perfect kind of sunshine and summer in her mind, no matter what's happening. It's optimistic. Despite what anxiety tells me, I try my best to still daydream up beautifully perfect scenarios in my head, even if it's contradictory to the disastrous scenarios that often like to play on repeat, and that's kind of what the song reminds me of. I'm always chasing and trying to hold onto that warm golden hour feel.

SinistrosePhosphate
Other than “tape-scratch-dead-silence”, you mean? ^^; If I have to choose one, Mozart’s Requiem’s “lacrymosa.” I am not a religious person, but this is an all-time favourite song from my choir days.

TheGalleryOfEve
Awww :happycry: I would love it if it was "I Was Here" by Beyonce :happycry: :heart:

Thiefoworld
Probably, something delicious like Bailando or something.

TokyoMoonlight
Queen - The Show Must Go On





How would you describe DA to someone who had never heard of it?


Astralseed
Hmm, I am usually better at showing than describing. If I had to describe it though, without the ability to shove a device in someones face all LOOK AT THIS!!!!, I think I'd say it's a really cool art site full of all sorts of different kinds of art. It also has some really great communities which help support artists and their crafts.  

burningmonk
A fun place where artists meet and share their work, from painting to photography to literature and graphic design: everything (fetish art thrown in the mix haha).

C-91
I usually describe it as "the biggest online art community, and also the place where I met my boyfriend". :P

DrZime
A fun place to post art and make friends. ~^.^~

Ellysiumn
The most incredible place to unleash your creativity. DA is my home!

JenFruzz
I literally need to do this to anyone I work with and family/friends on a regular basis :lmao: I tell them DA is the world's largest online art community. It's a place I volunteer for to showcase amazing nature photography but it's also a place I have made so many friends on from around the world!

JessaMar
An online art community. Full participation is possible with a free account, and a wide range of media and skill levels are represented.

LenamoArt
It's a place for everyone! You don't need to be an artist to join. Bah! You can be as terrible at drawing as a 3 year old child! It doesn't matter. It's a safe place of free creativity and tolerance. There is everything from paintings to poetry, from design to handmade plushes! But beware! There is also a dark side of DA, full of weird, twisted things that cannot be unseen.

LiliWrites
Hmm. I would tell them about the community, how there are life-long friendships formed over a shared love of art, writing, and learning about the creative process. I would tell them some of the world's greatest talents are sharing their work FOR FREE. And I would tell them that DA is a great place to build a niche for yourself. If you stick it out and put in the time to improve, interact, and share your knowledge with others, you'll have built a little home on the internet.

morbidman187 
I have always tried to keep it simple and say it is an art site or also mention that people can submit and display all kinds of art.


phoenixleo







pinkythepink
You set up a gallery with your artwork and people can comment on and collect the pieces. Getting exposure is difficult, especially if you aren't pandering directly to a preexisting fanbase, but doable with the right groups. The community of DA as a whole isn't really applicable, it's more the communities of the art mediums and topics, and it becomes more niche the more specific you go.

Queen-Kitty
Haha wellll, I've definitely done this before. I'm pretty sure I described it as an art site with a great community. "It's awesome and there are definitely some great people and amazing art, but there's also a lot of really weird fetish art." I definitely encourage people try out DA, but to not be freaked out by the weird stuff that can sometimes pop up, it's the internet after all!

SinistrosePhosphate
I usually describe it as an online artists’ community that brings together artists from all media and all skill levels so the members can make connections, learn from each other and get inspired. I think that’s adequate, right? (At least that’s what I tell folks at work about what I do at night…)

TheGalleryOfEve
DA is the place on the internet that you might visit because you found some amazing art or an amazing resource or tutorial, and which will capture your heart to the point that you will end up feeling it as your Internet Home :love: :heart: It's where you can share your creations, learn from others, gain some exposure and make amazing friends!!! :heart: :love:

Thiefoworld
You know how there are things, really weird things you sometimes think about, but they're so absurd you feel a little embarrassed and they never leave your head? Well, here people are not scared to draw those.

TokyoMoonlight
The biggest art sharing platform on web, which is, compared to other websites and social media, unique for having a strong community.

Hello, lovely people :hug:

I'm scheduling this journal in advance because I'm having feelings and it's easier to write it now and have it post on the right day than to sit down and write it at the time. When this shows up in your message centre, the heart next to my name will have changed (or will soon be changing) to a medal and I'll be a senior member again instead of a Community Volunteer :heart:

I joined DeviantArt 14 years ago and my first term as a Community Volunteer (except I think we were Gallery Directors or Gallery Moderators back then?) was in 2008. Since then, the only years I wasn't a volunteer during were 2011 and 2014. In the last just-over-a-decade, I've looked after horror, darkroom and general photography, sometimes separately, sometimes all at once. I did the volunteering thing a lot, for a long time, and my latest term was 2015-2019 (phew!), so I'm stepping down and reclaiming some time in my day and some space in my head :aww:

I'm truly honoured to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing team of people, especially my partner in General Photography crime, Mrs-Durden (who you should send your DD suggestions to). I'm not going anywhere and you'll probably see more of me around here because my DA time will be spend doing regular-deviant stuff instead of CV stuff and group admin stuff...except in April, because I'm taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo, but after that you won't be able to get rid of me :D

It's been a trip. You're all magic. Be excellent to each other :salute:
