To indiscriminately encourage, support and facilitate positive personal and creative growth.
We have handpicked most of you. We only want members whose presences provide them with comfort, and a sense of satisfaction that they can carry throughout their daily lives. Sharing it with us will multiply its value. Which isn't required.
Familiarity and camaraderie
This group is for anyone of any age, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physicality (whether "challenged" or "handicapped"), psychological state, et cetera. The only thing we judge members on is their ability to express something that we consider productive to the club, its members and, primarily, Team L.A. Zen's goals. Not a judgment. Just a fact. And, generally speaking, we may be in competition WITH each other, but definitely not AGAINST each other.
So we want members to enjoy collaborating and networking with one another. Each of us is a member of the Human Family, so Kiki and I (Kirk) consider you our sisters and brothers. Relatively, "Those who play together stay together." Just play nicely.
Only member submissions are accepted. And we will select the member deviations we view as productive to the goal of the club, which is to conjure creativity in its members' collective and individual projects.
Featured works will routinely be moved to respective folders (e.g., cute works moved to When Cute Attacks, etc.) as to give everyone's deviations a chance to be showcased, and to encourage members to become more involved in L.A. Zen projects. Thus rewarding them with their own folders.
Members who become directly involved in Team L.A. Zen projects will have a folder devoted exclusively to their work. Those who partner with The Team long term will be promoted on LA-Zen.com. (Which will be thoroughly updated.)
This is soon to be an invitation-only/private fan club. We are not looking to randomly build membership to increase its numbers.
If we invited you, your presence is appreciated, indefinitely. If you requested membership, and are not proactive, we may remove you from the group. Anyone can observe club activities without becoming a member.
We will get back to everyone as time permits. Kiki's chemotherapy/stem cell transplantation takes priority over all else.
Note: If you believe that by being a member you would add something special to it, we're certainly open to it. We're not snobs or elitists. We're here to elevate others while producing projects we hope will benefit others as well as ourselves.
And we do welcome all styles (from cute to dark) and skill levels (first-day beginner to industry professional).
