Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
It is not often we bestow deviousness upon someone who is already a member of staff, but sometimes you need to bend those rules when there are exceptions to the rule like $Moonbeam13. She has been heading up the crew of Gallery Directors as head of Artist Relations for going on a year now, listening to suggestions from the community, enacting her own ideas, getting input from the volunteers, and bringing you massively cool contests. And that’s just some of the things she gets done in a single day. It is with great pride and a huge vote of “thanks” that we give deviousness to $Moonbeam13 on the verge of our 6th Anniversary!

Project Educate

Project Educate is a joint venture between DA Community Relations (communityrelations) and the community. During each themed week, the project brings you a new set of articles with information, tips, and tricks about one of the many galleries on DeviantArt. We also regularly host a Community Week where anyone in the community has a chance to submit an article to share! We pride ourselves on being a fun and educational group, and we are happy that you have chosen to join us on this adventure. :heart: Happy deviating!

Thank you very, VERY much for the DD.  In particular, thanks for giving it to a work that I've always been proud of and yet, some how,  never seemed to get too noticed.  You've made my day, my week, and likely more!  THANK YOU!!Hug

Is J-P-Witkin one of your favs, a form of provocation? trolling?
;) ;) ;)

Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner May 14, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
Joel Peter Witkin is one of my favourites, I honestly don't get the rest of your comment :)
artin2007 Featured By Owner May 14, 2019
Never mind, I detected some incongruity, that's all... ;)

He's definitely not for everyone.
