DeviantArt and Madefire SHAKE San Diego Comic-Con
Let's bring it back to the old school my peoples. The days when we'd write real Journals, and link to all kinds of stuff on the Internet like as if we were Google. Get your scroll wheel ready, web-style. DeviantArt is on a M)&H3R 4/_|<126! RAMPAGE!  A NEW Beginning. If you knew what I know, you'd already be screaming. The reavening is upon us and there is no where to hide. Thanks for your feedback on the SNEAK PEEK of the new Today page, btw. We've reviewed all comments, made changes, and will be ready to share more soon, so keep an eye out! Another comp set from The NEW DeviantArt is on its way to you soon. ;) Comic-Con 2014, July 2
Communities rely on Pillars made of Heart
Communities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for. These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important. For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care
SNEAK PEEK: deviantART's NEW Today Page!
As I noted in my last journal, there are some big -- and exciting!! -- changes on the way for deviantART. Er, DeviantArt. The team here at DeviantArt continues to listen to your feedback plus we met with a crew of super-deviants in NYC last month (check out a pic below  and got a full, insightful download.  Then, we thought long and hard on how to pave a kindred and inspiring direction.  As always, you are the center of it all -- and how to connect you with your community.   Ok, getting into it, I want to share a sneak peek on work-in-progress (as in not final!) designs for the new Today page and to hear what everybody thinks.

‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt,
Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.
The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care
Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there.

Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones
While visions of inspiration across all time zones
Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be,
At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree!

When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,
“I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too.
I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”

I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!

“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!
Tap-and-hold to fave, share, and ‘More Like This’ – yay!
Read notifications on the go, or scan new search hits!
Check in on your friends, or even Submit!”

The deviant sprang to the App Store (or perhaps Google Play)
To download inspiration to read from his sleigh.
And I heard him exclaim, with all of his heart:
“Happy holidays to all, and to all a good art!”

Our sincere thanks ♥


In this season of reflection, we want to thank the DeviantArt community for the support, patience, enthusiasm, and love you've poured into our little slice of the Internet.

Whether you're a deviant who has been with us from the start or someone who is beginning their DeviantArt experience today, your path embodies everything our diverse community celebrates: inspiration to everyone around you, conversation to look forward to, a place you can be yourself, and a dauntless attitude that is so uniquely deviant.  Thank you for allowing DeviantArt to be the place where these common bonds of kinship are formed and shared.

Wishing you and yours health and happiness this holiday season.

–DeviantArt Staff
