I hope you all enjoyed your free premium memberships yesterday! I know I did! As promised, I've chosen a winner at random from the deviants who participated. And the winner is…
Thanks for playing along!
For 24 brief hours Everyone has a Premium Membership! That means, no ads, fancy stats and so much more! My favourite of these (in case you couldn't tell by my gallery) is Journals Skins!
I just love designing and coding! I use it as an expression of my artistic ability and for a brief shining moment everyone gets to use them! It's awesome. I love it so much I wanna extend one lucky users Premium Membership from a day to a month!
What do I have to do?
All you've got to do is create a journal using one of my Free Journal Skins and tell me why you like it!
Feature and artist, vent a frustration, inform the world of your next big art piece, anything you like! Just make sure you write a small paragraph telling me why it is you like that particular skin so much and send me a link to the journal so I can check it out.
The winner will receive a one month premium membership and a nice lil feature from me.
Enjoy your Free Premium Memberships!
The staff were asked to help populate the thought drawings pool and naturally I took a crack at it. Could you tell which ones were mine? Did any of you happen to get one that I made? I've seen quite a few of the ones I made make it to the most popular view which is mind blowing. I've never been there with my own art. XD It's kinda flattering.
So I screwed the pooch on this one… It appears the name TypeFight is already taken by another organization and they contacted me asking to resolve the confusion. I should have done my due diligence and researched the project a bit more but in my excitement I got carried away and pushed forward blindly. My Apologies
To that end I will be rebuilding the group on a new name. No longer will it be TypeFight, from henceforth you can find us at TypeBattle. All of the links and logos have been updated to reflect this new change. The journals and polls will be unaffected so if you have them faved or bookmarked you wont need to update your links. The old group will remain open for the next day or so while I migrate our early entrance fighters to the new group. In the mean time, I ask that all spectators please visit the new group and add that to your watchlist so you are kept up to date on the new battles.
Thanks for your understanding.
Help You This Year
I thought I'd do things a bit differently this year in regards to my New Year Resolutions. I already know what I want to accomplish this year in regards to my personal life, but I'm not sure exactly what I should strive for when it comes to my deviantART life. So I ask you; what is it you think I should do this year? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. I'd love to hear what it is you guys think I should be doing more/or less to help make deviantART a better place for you.
ginkgografix is an awesome person and all around excellent artist. She throws this project every year and it really does take a lot of effort to pull off. Please go give her some love and support!
deviantART turns 13!

If that's not kismet I don't know what is! I encourage all of your to answer the few simple question on the deviantHEART site and find your soulmate today!
We've been searching for a place to live for a little while now and it seems to bring frustration and disappointment every time we turn a corner.
It's really not possible to purchase a home here unless you've got a significant amount of savings and you're married with a job that pays you more than you're worth.
You'd think renting would be easier, but finding a place within your budget that is decent to live and in an area where you won't get murdered in your sleep or have to wake up 2 hours earlier so you can drive the entire island just get to work is proving to be just as hard.
It's times like this I really wish I didn't have to move back home after I finished school.
What are you searching for? Are you having any luck with it?
To help me get back in to the swing of things ChewedKandi has given me an amazing opportunity to write for Vectuts+. I've already got a tutorial hosted with them with a few more in the works. But, what I'd really like to do is rekindle that feeling of warmth you get from featuring talented artists, so I'll be hosting some interviews with various vector artists in the months to come. What I'd love from the Vector Community is the names of some amazing vector artists you've come across in your time on dA. These can be vector artists or any style or genre, using any program from Illustrator to InDesign, Illustrators to Typographers and anywhere in between.
I'm also very much open to dailyD suggestions. I've been terrible in this department since I started working full time for dA but I plan to change that. I'd appreciate vector art for dailyD suggestions but if the work is truly amazing I'd feature just about anything. :)
