deviantART's Birthday Scuzzle Game
    To kick off the celebrations for deviantART's 8th birthday (which is next week!), we've put together a brand new scuzzle for all you deviant sleuths to partake in. Put on your thinking caps, grab your magnifying glasses, and get ready for a good time.    Never heard of a scuzzle? It's a combination scavenger hunt and puzzle that involves both searching for clues and puzzling them together. (Information about our previously played scuzzle and its results can be found here and here.)    Crafty Creative team members have taken a photo of something awesometastic—something birthday related—and cut it up into 35 evenly-sized piece
deviantART's 11th BirthdAy: Let's Celebrate!
   Tweet August 7th, 2011 marks deviantART's 11th birthdAy, but in true devious style, we're taking a whole week to celebrate! Our original plans for Deviants Appreciation Day were so huge that there was no possible way to express our love for the community in a mere 24 hours. Instead, we've created Deviants Appreciation Week, and what better time to host a week's worth of community-oriented events than in the days leading up to our birthdAy? Each day this week, we have something special organized for you to participate in! Check out the schedule of events below to come party with us! In Skribble, our latest community contest, we challenge
Our Ongoing Battle Against Malicious Ads
 Tweet    Our Ongoing Battle Against Malicious Ads Toward the end of April, deviantART released a community-wide news article that outlined and reaffirmed our stance against advertisements that auto-play audio, contain pop-ups or redirects, and promote virus or malware activity. Three months later, we'd like to provide an update on our efforts to block malicious advertising from running on the site. We're taking these concerns seriously DeviantART takes all concerns on this topic very seriously and immediately implemented a number of changes to reduce the chance those type of ads would get served by our ad partners. These initial steps w

Happy Birthday to--Wait, I'm being SUED??
As reported by our very own film monkey ElectrikPinkPirate (https://www.deviantart.com/electrikpinkpirate) :film: That's right boys and girls. "Happy Birthday" is a copyrighted song. AOL/Time-Warner owns it, bringing in about $2million in royalty payments every year, and they will continue to use and make some serious cash off this until the year 2030. Why do you think that annoying restaurant-esque 'happy-happy-birthday!' yada is more prevalent in films (and in actual restaurants) than the traditional melody we all sing at parties? Unless you have $10,000USD to fork over, you will not be using this song anytime soon. :cake: "Happy Birthday" is something not many people are aware of

Otto and Victoria, Octovictorian Etiquette
 Watch depthRADIUS Share |About|Previous Journal by techgnotic (https://www.deviantart.com/techgnotic) There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through. Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point. His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney. Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he

The Enduring Enigma of Collage
   February 21, 2013/by techgnotic (https://www.deviantart.com/techgnotic) Watch depthRADIUS By techgnotic (https://www.deviantart.com/techgnotic)    Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself. Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about

I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade ro
