revelationsHow many scars to find the light
How much to give 'till you shine bright
Is the price of love the breaking of your heart?
Is it colder there while you sit and wait
Does the room you're in have no escape
Do they fill your head with demons past?
I needed proof for the hope I see
How did you see the beauty inside of me?
I've seen you lift the ground you walk on
I sat and heard you sing your love psalm
Dancing to the breath of hallelujah.
Through the looking glass, is there anything redeeming
Where life and love are what they seem and
Nothing stops the mountains that you move.
Can you see in you everything I see
Through these brown eyes, ma fille jolie
When you're left with just your skin and bones
How long the road to find your way home?
I've fallen here so many times before.
The world turned to find this place
So blessed with strength, so full of grace
On islands and in holes I'll stay
And give you the visions that you seek
Of signs and wonders
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.
As a card carrying member of both the devious Technology and Creative teams, Stanley has designed and touched the very soul of deviantART. In an industry where many allow their ego to grow beyond their skillset, Stanley is a shining example of someone who brings his intuitive talent to the table with no agenda other than one to get things done to the highest standard.It's with great honor that we award the Bolt Award to starvingartist!
