Due February 2019 :heart: :excited: (It's a boy!)

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!

About what you said about not giving up? I'm afraid I already did for a long time, look I can't do this no more, the site and community in general is too much for me to take, there's so much media that I have a hard time planning what to draw first (still an idiot amateur when artists younger than me are already good at it). Sorry to but I don't feel cut out for this after all, I'm still a nobody from before I joined this site. Just a broken soul with broken dreams.
