I have been asked these questions multiple times:
    - Yes you can edit your meme so that it can be from 1999~2009 or 2007~2009, its totally up to you, that's what the .psd file is for. C: - Yes you can post your meme link here, I enjoy looking at all of them! It is quite interesting. - Yes you can change the fonts on the template, not everyone has the same fonts as me. ^^

I check my messages... DD? :'D Thank you so much!!
I don't know if I deserve this but if it spreads to artists who have been drawing for a long time and is interested in doing this meme, fantastic!

Wow what a bandwagon now. xD

Thank you everyone who is doing this meme, it really excites me seeing all these people improving so much over the years. :heart:


People asked for the blank form so here it is. 8D

You can just use the temp pic above, or download the PSD.

Fonts in the temp used:
- Berlin Sans FB Demi

This is the one I filled out c:

I remember when this had specific years instead of custom ones and there was a second one where the last year available was 2013 and someone commented on that picture that there would be no art improvement in 2013 because of the end of the world in 2012.

Decade Meme by RainstormCheetah

I did this a couple of weeks ago, too, after I saw a friend had done it; the new decade seemed like the perfect time for a retrospective, particularly since this year marks my ten years of being on DA. Thanks for making this!
