HELLO! :wave: DEVIANTS!

Stamp by HappyNewYear

I featured several artists in my main page journal entries that have used my stock during the year 2007. Once again, it's time to clean up my journal and put some of these images together in one, final feature.

Each journal entry this year included a quote by a famous artist to help inspire those that read them. Please note that the quotes don't necessarily reflect upon the art by which they appear.

Some of these features include more than one piece of art. These are various contest winners. They may or may not have used my stock, but they're still fabulous!

Please keep in mind that this list took me the entire year to compile. It wasn't easy because it pained me to have leave anyone out. EVERYONE that used my stock is featured in my favorites and my wishlist, which will always be reserved for those that use my stock! All of these artists are great! If you've got time, please check them out.
