With heavy hearts and tired eyes, we're officially concluding our week of SXSW festivities, so we'd like to take the time to reminisce on our experiences.

We started it all off with a deviantMEET in Tucson, AZ.  Deviants came out in hoards for this impromptu get-together to create art, as well as score exclusive dA swag from endosage and Moonbeam13!  Check out the photos from this event here.

We kept the deviantMEET momentum rolling with another meet held in Austin, TX!  The turnout was crazy amazing, with over 500 deviants in attendance.  There was music, food, and a whole lot of deviousness taking place.  Photos from this event can be found at the Texasdevmeet group at this collection.

Finally, there was The deviantART Sandbox!  From the moment the doors opened, the place was packed with a huge range of people, from those who were active deviants to those who had never heard of deviantART.  With deviantART muro tables, art creation areas, and featured guests like Felicia Day stopping by, it was a hugely successful outing.  There were even two real live llamas who showed up during the event ready to create art using spyed's iPad 2. Not able to attend? See pictures from the event here!

We'd like to take the time to thank Drunken-Splice, StJoan, and all of our other deviants who helped lead our events!  Also, a big thanks to everyone who came to our events and to those who kept up with our adventures online.  We've seen deviantART become accessible for everyone, even llamas, and made others more aware of and in touch with their inner creative. Keep your eyes open for an official wrap-up soon! :woohoo:

:star: Do you have a favorite memory from this week of events? Share it here! :la:

I'm so confused. I googled PandaKong and then saw some descriptions or something that matched my Deviations... Very weird.
