Firstly, a huge thank you to SanguineEpitaph for organising deviantART Staff Appreciation Week and inspiring Indae and I to start this project. :heart:


Without further ado, we’d like to announce the winners of our Contest. :eager:

First Place

However, this was first and foremost a project, aiming to make a compilation to show our appreciation for the deviantART staff. Thanks to the fantastic array of project entries we received, we have been able to put together this deviation as a thank you from all of us:

A Compilation for the dA Staff by death-wishes

We’d now like to share with you a collection of comments about the deviantART Staff, and to feature some deviations made by the Staff themselves. :heart:

"The dA staff are the gears behind the scenes, keeping things running smoothly even when dArama abounds. Their dedication to the site is kinda the basis of what the larger community is built on. Basically, they rock lots." - SparklyDest

Getaway Snack 2 by danlev Poison Ivy by megturney Clay Fella by LaurenKitsune

The Staff have allowed us to flourish as a community into what we are today - yes, this is cheesy but without them we wouldn't have the welcoming atmosphere that we do at dA.” - Phlum

My gallery needs more cats by Ayame-Kenoshi DeviantART Logo Icon by TheRyanFord :eagerpee: by Ikue

"The Staff at Deviantart are some of the most helpful and amazing people! Without them or this site I probably wouldn't be confident at art! Reading some of their journals always makes me smile too! :)" - King-Char

Black Ink - U2 by starvingartist Bergamot Art Show by codenamepanther Soft City SoundOnce upon a time
You and I
Became the smoke in a saxophone song
In a starry still-wet city
In a moment
That didn't quite happen
So much as it was imagined
I sleep and imagine it again

dA is like a city already, a big one, and the staff members try their best to keep it running and organized, and taking care of a community like this gotta be a lot of work. So, for all that work: THANK YOU, dA's STAFF! :XD:” - FlamerXMagofire
