My Bio
Hi, I'm Stanley Sy. I'm a graduate of the Art and Art History joint program at University of Toronto and Sheridan College. I work behind-the-scenes designing "stuff" for deviantART.

Most of it involves hand-coding XHTML & CSS for various layouts (such as new events, news or journal entries) around the site. I really enjoy solving usability issues and organizing information for clarity, so it's been a fun, on-going challenge.

I get to work with some pretty talented people such as pachunka (who does most of the cool front-end stuff you see here), levinet (who helps me out a lot), OliverJanoschek (who does all those funky Fella images) and many more.

Previously, I designed deviantART's Minimal skin. I also like to dabble in pixel art. You'll find a few of my little toolbar icons across deviantART.

Depending on the kind of screen you use and how heavy your glasses are, some of these images might look 3D! (If you're wearing contacts, these will mostly look flat). The reds will look like they're popping out, while the blue recedes into the back. Chromostereopsis is a visual illusion whereby the impression of depth is conveyed in two-dimensional color images, usually of red-blue or red-green colors (Wikipedia) Check out these works by deviant doc3002/chromostereopsis:

Deviousness Award

There's a reason `starvingartist is a senior member here at deviantART, and it's not just his length of stay. Stanley has continually given to this community rather than take from it, and as such has proven his resourcefulness in this world of art. We see his contributions in not only his comments and submissions, but every day in the form of both his Minimal skin and the many small icons throughout the site. For these reasons, we at deviantART are proud to award `starvingartist with the Deviousness Award for September 2003.
Awarded Sep 2003
