The Yearbook
DeviantArt is turning 18 years old and that means it is time to graduate and join "the real world" as some like to call it. One of the most common keepsakes from high school is the yearbook. It's a way to look back years later and point at your classmates wondering "who is this again?" and "did they even go here?". You can browse photographs from various school events like field day or prom. Oh and don't forget about the awesome quotes that the students get to leave by their graduation photo! The communityrelations (https://www.deviantart.com/communityrelations) team has created this yearbook (Ok, it's a journal but we're artists. Use your imagination ;P) and would love to have you s

Wow um thanks a lot for suggesting my deviation. o.o I'm quite surprised to be honest because while the picture that you suggested is a heartwarming memorial of what used to be a thing, I don't believe it's one of my best works.:aww: Thanks again, though! That was very thoughtful of you.:D
