Welcome To The Today PageShare|ArchiveWelcome To The Today PageBy techgnoticDawn by SmattilaThe wonderful thing about the shared global art narrative is that it’s constantly evolving.A new chapter in the deviantART story has begun, with a new Today Page focused on outreach and engagement, telling our stories and bringing a devious lens to the world around us. We seek to monitor, analyze, report on, and most importantly, be a part of encouraging the bond between art, life and the human spirit using the pulse of the first digitally-oriented art collective and in ways older, established media cannot.Many online communities are capable
FOX09T Book 1 Chapter 1F09T Book 1 Chapter One - Larissa Of Foxwood As the first soft gray wave of pre-dawn light filtered in through the open bedroom window, there was the slightest movement beneath the blankets. He detected it of course immediately, his peaked ears twitching and rotating like tiny radar stations, his ever-vigilant amber eyes flashing fully open. Yes, she was stirring. Soon she would be awake. His guardian duties were done for another night. He carefully raised himself from where he had lain curled up at the foot of the bed and alighted with a little jump from the bed to the floor. His four black-stockinged paws made no sound as he padded across the hardwood floor. Then came the short hop to the dresser top beneath the open window. There he hesitated to turn and regard his sleeping charge for a moment before departing. He wondered how such a seemin

The Tree as Beautiful Machine:icontechgnotic:by techgnoticWhile searching deviantART for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on deviantART that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

Engage Wonderment: Odyssey - Phase TwoGreetings Everyone. Over the last six weeks I have been plotting, planning, and researching all of the ways we might efficiently and effectively go about publishing Odyssey this year in book form. In an effort to bring back the best possible counsel before embarking on this process I have spoken with multiple publishers, printers, designers, distributors, and authors that I have worked with in the past.:icontechgnotic:by techgnoticWed Feb 22, 2012, 7:30 PMEngage Wonderment: Odyssey - Phase TwoGreetings Everyone.Over the last six weeks I have been plotting, planning, and researching all of the ways we might efficiently and effectively go about publishing Odyssey this year in book form.

The Dead Places: The Visual Delicacy of DecayPontiac by PionierUKThe Dead PlacesThe Visual Delicacy of Decay:icontechgnotic:by techgnoticIt’s easy to think of art in terms of what is instantly pleasing to the eye, artworks whichevoke a feeling of joy and hopefulness and blissful peacefulness or ecstatic exultation.This is the consideration of art as something that helps propel us forward through life – to out future greatdeeds, our career victories, or dreams of coming big events. But there is a peak to every life. At some point allpeople, and all places, and even all ideas have to begin the inevitable decline that is the other balancing half of a lifetime.:t
Happy 13th birthday, and thank youToday marks deviantART's 13th birthday and a handful of us -- spyed, mccann, chris, and me -- have been on this amazing journey since pretty much day one. Thirteen years ago, most of us in that handful were just teenagers, unknowingly embarking on a time in our lives that would shape us, inspire us, and be truly thought-provoking in ways we could have never imagined. Today, I find myself so fortunate to play a role in the ongoing journey that has deviantART at the forefront of solving complex problems that affect the creative community. Throughout the years, I've met incredible people at deviantMEETs, town hall meetings, and visits to new countries -- all of which have fostered relationships and changed my life. I'm extremely grateful to have talked with every deviant who has crossed my path -- even in a note, comment, or journal. The deviantART community has flourished and prospered in the past 13 years, and we're thankful for that,

Seniority Announcement - December 2011This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 800 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.:faq29:So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised
Did you know? You can upload to Sta.sh many ways!In continuation of our series on using Sta.sh, we'd like to let you know of yet another way you can utilize your Sta.sh -- by uploading via email and FTP. Why, you ask?There are several uses for this feature. Say you're walking down the street, and you see something that catches your eye. Perhaps there's an impromptu dance party, or the sun is setting over the mountains. You only have your phone on you, and you snap a photo. It looks amazing, but that photo is forever doomed to reside in your phone. Now, you can email that picture to your Sta.sh and have it ready for you when you're home. Sta.sh also gives you a place to store that photo so you can share the link with friends.Or, say you're at school or work you've been collaborating with a friend on your latest masterpiece. You may not be able to log in to your deviantART account, or don't want to ge
