free membership - who wants one?

One more day, I will renew my membership and give a year's premier membership to someone tomorrow evening. It will be hard to decide who, everyone who does art deserves one! Thanks for the comments so far! Joe I am about to extend my premium membership for one more year. Since Deviant Art has this deal where I can give the same membership to somebody else, I might as well. If you want a year's premium membership, give me a reason why I should give you one and I will give one to whoever gives me the best reason! Act soon, because, I plan on renewing this weekend! Joe
