My Bio
I am generally referred to as The Yellow Alien here on deviantART even though my real name is Scott Jarkoff. Since 1990, ten years prior to co-founding deviantART, I have been living in central Japan near Yokohama, the third largest city in this island country.

While I am a co-founder my daily activities label me as the Director, Community Development. I manage and oversee our Help Desk Team, Policy Violation Team, News Team and the Message Network @dministration. The position is effectively that of the one who leads the community in the various directions that it needs to go. Sounds weird, I know, but that is the basic definition. Management, and general community administration, take up a large portion of my time but I also submit product specifications in order to make your suggestions a reality.

Throughout your travels here at deviantART you should pay tribute to matteo, arc and tack for the large amount of help that they gave deviantART in its early days.

A few really quick thoughts: 1) DA's reimagining, rebranding, updated logo, and overall story is fabulous. I will have more to say later, most likely in a longer journal post. 2) I am going to make a concerted effort to be more active in the community again. 3) Need to rebrand my own image here on DA. The current branding is a bit ... dated. It almost feels like I'm coming home after being gone for years ...

The oldest Deviant ever.

Hello Jark. We need you back more than ever. We need you to help us in our fight to restore DeviantArt.

End the Eclipse! (Poster template)

Please, oh please. Get some people together and make a new devart. Again, please.

Whelp, DA is digging their grave deeper with the new DreamUp journal. The addition of this AI Art Tool has caused a mass exodus last years, losing long lived artists on the way. Regardless of comments, videos and rant about it, nothing has change.


DA is not what it used to be. It pains me how your site got stolen and got run on the ground like this.

You are the first artist?!

Huge respects to you🙇‍♂️.

It says on Google that you were one of the founders of Deviantart. Is that true?

yes, that is true
