CEA Update for September 5, 2007
UPDATES FROM realitysquared : Spamming and Scams.
This week I’d like to point out a troublesome onsite trend which has affected many people and which we are working diligently to end.
As many users have noticed a large number of accounts have been created lately which either comment on user pages, deviations or send notes to hundreds or even thousands of deviants seemingly at random.
The contents of these comments and notes read approximately as follows:
OMG! you're a GENIUS! Why don't you join the poetry contest from [link] ? Free to enter, 100k prizes. You MUST win it!</i>
The [link] is typically a “tinyurl” which disguises the true destination of the hyperlink.
If you receive a comment or a note which contains this phrase please do not click the link as they have proven to be malicious destinations (viruses), outright scams or simply annoying advertisements.
Please file a helpdesk report if you receive a comment or note containing that pasted phras

  It's been over a year that I've set this stylish design as a wallpaper.
Looking at it now, it still has the same power to captivate me as it did then. A great piece made by an artist with a very good eye for design and detail.

This artist has a good grasp of capturing an expression in a dramatic style, which in this case, works perfectly. Set this piece as your wallpaper and I promise it will

Always have room on my desk for this classic. The color and simplicity of this wall is what sets it apart.  Detailed with out being distracting, emotional without being preachy. Overall great work, where did this guy go?

Calm and refreshing. Very clean sharp lines with light tones makes this easy on the eyes.  For all you minimal freaks, this would work perfect w

I am attracted to the bright orange and the traveling through space feel in this.

  I like the contrast of the sky and the red balloons. One could drift away to the heavens with this wallpaper.

Skinzine Vol 4 - Minimalism on your desktop

Volume 4: Minimalism

Welcome to Skinzine, the deviantART Skins & Themes Weekly Magazine.
Thanks a lot to PascalPixel for helping me on the selection/review of these themes.
This time I'm gonna feature some great minimalist themes/skins for your PC. I'm sorry again to dont cover up the Macintosh scene yet, but the gallery revamp I'm planing to start will take place on the next days hopefully, and then all the mac users will be happy as ever ;) trust me.
Let's start with a basic definition of what the minimalism is.
Why minimalism? :ohnoes:
The minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features.
The term minimalism is also used to describe a trend in design and architecture where in the subject is reduced to its necessary elements. Minimalist design has been highly influenced by Jap

CEA Update for August 30, 2007
:iconrealitysquared:
UPDATES FROM realitysquared : Permissions Issues and Tools.
This week I would like to highlight a brand new tool which has been created for both the artist and the CEA staff.
As we all know deviantART allows you to use the work of other artists providing that you first obtain written permission or a license from the original artist, photographer or writer. Without being able to verify this permission we in the CEA had no choice but to assume that you didn’t have it in the first place.
Over the years we have tried various methods of asking you to provide us with the proof of permission that we need to allow these sorts of works and unfortunately some of them have been clunky and less-than-private, such as our first procedure years and years  involving submitting a zipfile bundle of your work and the permission together.
To compound the problem, many deviants remained unaware of the permissions requirement and we are fighting a constant bat

Weekend to End Breast Cancer
Introduction

For the past 5 years our very own $Moonbeam13 has been involved in supporting and raising money for The Weekend To End Breast Cancer event in Toronto.

She has done this in a fairly quiet and discreet way so we felt it was time to shed a bit more light on what exactly she does for this great cause.

To give a bit of background, in the past 4 years this organization has raised over 60 million dollars in donations and through this has made some landmark strides in advancing the research on breast cancer, which claims the lives of close to 50,000 women a year and about a quarter million women diagnosed per year.

This money does ma

The Artists in AR
One major component in the position description for a Gallery Director is to ensure that they take the time to be artists.  They are artists first and volunteers second, as far as I'm concerned.  I, unfortunately, don't have much time these days to create myself, nevermind comment on the spectacular works that I see in my devwatch daily. I have slowly become a silent faving freak, which in itself makes me crazy.  However, I wanted to take this time to honor the incredible artists that comprise the Artist Relations team.

Deviant Stamps Size Limit
Starting soon all submissions to deviantART Related > Deviant Stamps will be required to be of width 99 pixels by height 56 pixels or smaller.  
All stamps larger than this will be moved to scraps until they are resized.  If they are not resized they will remain in scraps.
Stamp packs are the exception to this, but only so long as the original stamps are either linked from the deviation or available for download there.  Images containing a collection of stamps without these will also be moved to scraps.
If you personally are having trouble resizing your stamp to within the limits, please let me know and I will help.
[EDIT] Please read This Journal before commenting!

It's time for my yearly journal entry and I had two things I wanted to share.

The first was this deviation that I very randomly stumbled across recently.

:dalove: by MyntKat

It's a complete mindfuck that someone, somewhere made this six years after I created the emoticon. Awesome.

:ilovedevart: by zacthetoad

And the second thing I wanted to share was a crowd funding campaign I just launched. If you've enjoyed my work over the years, perhaps you'll consider making a pledge. Or sharing this with your friends. Especially if you like beer. Which you should because it's delicious.



Please, check out the campaign and make a pledge.
