Artist Relations Newsletter - November 21, 2007
:pointr: Director of Artist Relations

The purpose of Artist Relations is to strengthen the community spirit as well as network with fellow artists so that we may bring outside opportunities to you, and help you to hone your skills. The Gallery Directors are the first people you should go to regarding your galleries. They are the people you need to make gallery suggestions to, and ask questions about your specific genre, or seek knowledge from. They also act as your lifeline to the administration. They are here to support and listen, and I can tell you we've got incredibly talented, devoted and passionate people on this team, so get to know them!
:bulletgreen: Let us begin by wishing Staged and truemarmalade the best and thanking them for their contribution to the team.  We also welcome the following new facesHelewidis (Artistic Nudes), Sophquest (Fractal), DCZed (Vexel), aunjuli (Fan Ar

Give Thanks! (A Contest)
I'm looking for deviantART's best "Thank you!" letter. Thanksgiving is coming up in America, and I've been in quite the appreciative spirit of late, so I figured this would be a good way to spread some love and gratitude.
Contest Objective:
Write a "Thank you" letter to someone.
It doesn't have to be a real someone, you don't have to "name" the someone, and you don't even have to be that thankful. It can be sincere and heartfelt; it can be bitter, sarcastic, and jaded; it can be funny, absurd, or silly; it can be completely formal or totally informal. It can be a letter you've sent, a letter you've never sent, a letter you've always wanted to send, a letter addressed to more than one person, a letter you'd never send in a million years, a letter you should've sent, or something completely and utterly made up for the benefit of this contest. Regardless, it has to be a "Thank you" letter; you must be thanking (or "thanking") someone for something. Mak

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
