Nice newsletter, good way to discover new artists and deviations :)

But there's one thing that's bothering me: my notifications said that you mentioned me, yet I can't find anything from myself in here. Is this some sort of hidden mention or am I just blind?
TanyaSimpson Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2016
Under the Interviews and Artist Spotlights section, there's a link to the Darkroom Spotlight article you were featured in and you're name is mentioned, so that's why you'll have got the notification about it :aww:
