Group Switch Around Meme Results!The Results!Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look. Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future. These compilations were arbitrarily split up into sets of ten, just so that there wouldn't be one giant file:1. TheShadowEmpress http://sta.sh/01owvv9rpkn72. SimplySilent http://sta.sh/0iyqtgojy503.

DeviantART Compliments #131Dear EcoStark,It's been about 2 years since we started watching each other (which is crazy, considering how we've been friends so long), and I'm so very glad that I found you on dA through Sarah. Just- Oh my gosh. I remember how when we first were friends, we didn't have much to talk about. But over this past year, we began to become close. And once I got into OFF, we were really able to discuss more than we used to. I don't regret anything at this point.But, I just wanted you to know that you're a wonderful friend, even if you might not feel that way. You mean so much to me now... Everyday, I look forward to talking with you, even if it's just for a little bit. (I'm being so honest right now. uvu) Please know that I'll always be here for you if you need me. I hope and wish the best for you, mi amiga. Stay awesome.MiaPS: Your art style is so cute. uwu Please draw more when you can.AzumiSaku,you are amazing! You are a very nice and talented person,and those doodles that y
Interview with GrypwolfFace On by GrypwolfToday we have an interview with the amazing Grypwolf, a twenty-three-year-old digital artist from Finland! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!Tell us a bit about your art and yourself as an artist. How long have you been doing art? What kind of art do you do?Hi! My name is Jonna and I am a 23 years old digital artist from northern Finland. My mom says that I was born with the urge to draw and create stuff with my hands. As soon as I first time grabbed the pen in my hand, she had to cover our house with old newspapers - every single day, before I learned how to stay on paper and not to draw on everything I saw. But I indeed loved drawing and I still do. Of course when I still was a young, there was no computers and "digital art", so I started with traditional. My favorite medium had to be just a regular pencil or cheap markers. Oh that joy when every single Christ
Life at CornellLast week I moved three hours forward into the future by flying from my home in California to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. (Hooray for not having to live all the way back in PST time anymore. )So just an update journal with some poorly shot pictures for your amusement:^ View from one of the main bridgesThe bad shot from my phone doesn't do this justice, but there's a giant and epic looking gorge/waterfall by the dorms (not shown here, this one is the smaller one) that we cross each day when we go to class. Cornell is also very leafy and green.^ West campus where all the upperclassmen and the best dining halls reside.I only went down there once because the walk back up the slope is intense. The picture doesn't show it well, but I swear the path has an incline of at least 30 degrees, which is actually much, much tougher than it looks here. The whole school is filled with hills, so my legs have been continuously sore for the last week. Good thin

Collection: Snowed InShare|ArchiveSnowed InThere is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the
