Sponsoring Artists' Alley

Every year, Comic-Con International: San Diego hosts a huge gallery of artists in what's known as Artists' Alley. It's an honor for the artists, who have earned the right to sit among their peers with a lifetime's worth of hard work and incredible talent, and it's an honor for the attendees to meet face-to-face some of the artists that have provided such inspiration and stunning visual entertainment. In years past, notable deviants have sat in this accomplished Alley of Artists and we've attended to offer support to past and future deviants across the convention.

This year, it is with even greater honor and pride that deviantART can announce its sponsorship of Artists' Alley.

We'll be providing not one, but two huge display screens streaming art from artists attending Artists' Alley. The displays, measuring roughly 11 feet wide, will be hung from the convention ceiling right over the Alley to show works from these great artists to the whole convention hall. Computer stations, complete with Wacom tablets and connected to the Web, will be located in a designated area, where artists in the Alley can demo digital drawing styles or showcase their work from online resources, digitally complementing their physical works.

We Love Artists' Ally Comic-Con attendees will see the above graphic spread across Artists' Alley and Comic-Con itself.

Emerging Artists, We Want You!

As part of deviantART's sponsorship of Artists' Alley, we'll be providing two scholarships to emerging artists — one web-based comic artist and one traditionally-based comic artist — who will be guests of deviantART and Comic-Con. The chosen artists will spend two days at Comic-Con, where they will be able to cruise the convention floor, attend panels, and be introduced to prominent artists in the industry; with a chance to pick their brains and gain artistic inspiration right from the source.
