The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.spyed
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins
Art can be anything, but not everything is art: for art is creative, emotional, made, poetic, visual, and it is even inspiring. Art is not just what others tell you, but what 'you' want it to be!
Anyone can create art, though not all can have the same skill level in certain mediums as others do: for artists are always improving, changing, & for lack of a better word, evolving. Therefore, all are unique in one sense or another, even when similar. So whether you spread your wings & take flight, fall to the depths below, or end up somewhere in between: art becomes what you want it to be, for it is an extension of one's self.
