I've finished one out of six of my Nunoco mini batts. I will pair these up and ply each pair together for three different yarns. Each one will be spun on the Jenkins Turkish Finch displayed here.

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 4:26 AM

deviantART is my home no matter where I am. It's hard to imagine it's turning 14!

For over 11 years deviantART has been there for me though high school and university as a source of artistic inspiration and for learning as well as a place to show off my artwork as I progressed through the various art classes I took.

 back to school. by Katari01

During my Sophomore year of University I was asked by hexentanz to work along side her on the deviantART Help Desk which was amazing and at that time completely unheard. I was only part time back then along with part time for the University's Computer Lab Help Desk. Being able to work from any location on my favorite website was absolutely perfect and still is! The position became a great learning experience and helped me be more involved in this community I love. During my Senior year I was asked to go full time and I remember when I had my Senior Interview the professors asked me what sort of jobs I was looking for now that I was almost done. I said are you kidding? I already have the perfect job with deviantART I couldn't ask for anything better than working with people I consider family, helping out artists across the world, and being able to work anywhere! They had the most dumbfounded faces not realizing that my job was an actual REAL job. I can't believe it's been almost 9 years since I started at the Help Desk... time sure flies.

Time flies... by Pamba

deviantART helped me find my love, on the #photography chat. We've been together now for almost 8 and a half years.

: love : by LimpidD

Four years ago I wanted to move across country all in the name of love. It was a big moment in my life. deviantART helped make moving across country easier with so much of my family being members so we could keep up to date with each others' artwork. Packing up and moving somewhere new is always difficult no matter how short or long a distance but no matter the distance deviantART was my constant to tie my old home with my new.

Moving...again by JohnKeane

No matter the changes I experienced over the years my home here on deviantART was a constant. A place where I could learn, grow, and meet many wonderful people.

When I grow up ... by Unkopierbar

I've befriended many people through deviantART who have inspired me to become better, not only as an artist but as a whole.

Inspire by LeBubar

I've even become friends with some artists that early on I was a huge fan of theirs never knowing that we would later become friends and inspire each other.

Many of the friends I've made I consider to be more like family no matter how crazy some are hehe!

One in every family. by DeeOtter

It's hard to imagine that over 40% of my life I've been on deviantART. Whether it was to learn and grow as an artist, making new friends, admiring artwork and artists, and working to help all you deviants on site it has all been a remarkable experience. I always think about how deviantART is Art History in the making. Never in the history of Art has there been a collection of artists on this scale. It's remarkable to think of it in that light and I'm so glad that I'm able to be part of it!

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. In photography, everything can be so ordinary, it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.

My name is Evanita W. Montalvo. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art with a concentration in Photography and minor in Art History. I am a wildlife and nature photographer. In my spare time I tend to my many pets, take pictures at several nature parks and zoos, and work on fiber arts projects.

I am part of the Community Operations department as the Help Desk Team Leader. Part of my responsibilities include helping lead those working in the Help Desk, oversee Bug Reports to make sure they are sent over and fixed by the deviousTechnology department, and help make decisions on general help desk stuff such as improvements to our Zendesk based Help Desk and ways for us to improve our ability to help all you deviants! We are constantly improving our Help Desk so if you have any suggestions please let me know via note. :)

You can find me helping alongside of Ikue and Thunderstatement in our Customer Service Central Help Desk. I specialize in dealing with Bug Reports but I also handle emails sent to and sometimes General Help. I also enjoy helping out in the #help chat on dAmn when I get a chance. :typerhappy:

This sort of situation should be addressed within the Help Desk.

Oh ok, thanks.
Sorry I'm kind of new when it comes to this situation. xP

Hey, some guy scammed me and many of my friends into doubling their points, he doubled mine and I was foolish and he deactivated his account. I was wondering if you could help us maybe

Hi there. Thank you for helping out with the false-alarm bug report. I could have sworn I saved it in RGB and not CMYK. Silly me. I should have caught that.
Thanks again! :)
ewm Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
No worries. We've seen this come up a bit more often lately which is strange. Luckily it's an easy fix for the image files. :)
Kiarorin Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Student Traditional Artist
Hmm. Perhaps CMYK has somehow been set as default while saving images on certain programs?
ewm Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
MelodyMoose this is a bug test! Let me know if you received this.
MelodyMoose Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes I did.
