DeviantART Presents Artists’ Alley


star-1




The heavy metal enchanted trace leukocytes (midichlorians) that course through the systems of all deviants are coming to life as internal compasses begin to all bend all time and space in one direction, to one set of co-ordinates, to one ultimate destination:






San Diego Comic-Con
star-2




It’s that time of year again. Pass your Voight-Kampff test, grab your OTP and patch up your sunken ships. COMIC-CON 2014 is nigh.

Blade Runnerby chrisfkn

star-4


It’s time for the caravans to organize the clans in their multitudes and for the outlier lone wolves to pack provisions. It’s time for the cosplayers to retrieve their Wookie suits and Pegasister Wings from the cleaners and for true fans to organize their maps and plans for ultimate zeitgeist intake. And it’s time for the heart and soul of Comic-Con, the artists and writers themselves to gather their wares and wonders and set their sights on pieces of prime real estate in Artists’ Alley, the Mecca of Comic-Con’s holy and unholy sojourners.


It’s time for you to make a decision.


The Universe requests your spiritual presence in a communal elevation of the global pop arts movement.  You can do your part in making the human connections that make the world a better place.


Or you can spend some me-time in the inflatable backyard swimming pool.


What would Cthulhu do?









Also, join us for a deviantMEET!

Date & Time:


Wednesday, July 23rd at 10:00 PM PST

Is there something on DA that identifies the artists who will be in the Artists' Alley this year, so that we can look through their art and figure out who we want to track down on the convention floor?

If it were closer to the QC area and I was 3 years older than 18, I'd be much more hopeful to be at this event.  I have many different ideas that are harder to put into words, I'm not even an artist but like seeing all of the different kind of art DA has to offer.

Your informational copy in the lighter peach color (at the top sections of this 'Ad') is unreadable on the light green background - bad type-graphic color planning.

If you want this copy to be readable on the screen, you need to make the informational copy darker, like your headers and sub-headers in the darker orange color are. As it is, I need to highlight/copy & paste onto a Word doc to even read what you have written.

You may want to revise this.
