DeviantART Presents Artists’ Alley
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:
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.
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.
