Dear Teen MeYou know what? Even as you, we'd both agree starting this off with a "Dear Timothy" is useless. We both know why I'm here to write this.Dear Teen Me by timmy64
You're gay. It'd probably help to sit you down and explain the mechanics of all of this to you; but, let's face it, you're gonna need a couple of years of denial to sort this out any way. Mum and Dad are okay with it, you know, and these days we're in a stable relationship. It won't be easy though.
I'd love to be able to sit here and say that the next ten years are going to be a walk in the park. I'd love to be able to tell you that it gets better, and that things will run smoothly. They won't. Things will get worse before they get better. Your first relationship, well, he's a drug addict these days. Oh, you will care for him, and I still do; but, you won't stay with him long. Fear will get the better of you, and you'll run. You'll keep running for about two years. You'll get another fling or two, and after a while the damage will start to pile up.

Dear Editor Cassieizzlefo'shizzle,
Did you know that the Forum Newsletter is returning on the first of the new year? I'm not sure how to feel about this. It's like I'm being quartered by unicorns, I'm not sure if I should be in pain or awe! How should I cope wit
Putting the ART in #devART 2009 Wrap Up.In January of 2009 the MN@ decided that it would be a great idea to highlight the art behind the dAmn junkies that spend their time chatting, idling and generally having a good time in dA official chatroom :#devart:.Putting the ART in #devART 2009 Wrap Up. by shuttermonkey
After a short hiatus we are back on track and this issue is not only going to highlight some fresh faces but a few formerly featured artist as well.
Putting the art in #devart Vol. 1 was the article to start it all. It featured many of our artist who a year later still call #devart home.
Putting the art in #devart Vol. 2 started a new trend where the MN@ took the time to highlight what about the chatter or their artwork made them stand out among the others. In particular;
Here's what leaf-lover had to say: "What really drew me to this image was the fantastic colours; the blues and crea
Community Relations Newsletter - Nov/Dec 2009Community Relations Newsletter - Nov/Dec 2009 by Moonbeam13
deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius. The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success. In order to realize our vision, our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values.

Christmassy goings on in #devart! Happy Christmas, deviants!Christmassy goings on in #devart! by Xerces
If you're not feeling festive yet, grab some tinsel and sit tight!
I will be running some short contests in :#devart: on the 24th of December (That's Thursday folks!) from 7pm GMT onwards. I will try and spread the rounds out so that lots of people have a chance to take part- whichever time zone you are in!
What do I have to do?
You'll need to be in the :#devart: chatroom for a start!
I will be asking you to find me festive thumbnails from chosen categories on given subjects.
For example: I might give you the subject of Snowmen to be found in the "Digital Art> Photomanipulation> Dark" category.
The first person to put up a thumbnail including the subject will get points! And points mean prizes!
Although there are only 3 rounds, each round will contain 10 challenges. There will be one prize up for grabs with each round. If you miss out the first time, there is always a chance to play the next round.
