Happy 13th birthday, and thank you

Wed Aug 7, 2013, 12:06 AM
Today marks deviantART's 13th birthday and a handful of us -- spyed, mccann, chris, and me -- have been on this amazing journey since pretty much day one.  Thirteen years ago, most of us in that handful were just teenagers, unknowingly embarking on a time in our lives that would shape us, inspire us, and be truly thought-provoking in ways we could have never imagined.  Today, I find myself so fortunate to play a role in the ongoing journey that has deviantART at the forefront of solving complex problems that affect the creative community.    

Throughout the years, I've met incredible people at deviantMEETs, town hall meetings, and visits to new countries -- all of which have fostered relationships and changed my life.  I'm extremely grateful to have talked with every deviant who has crossed my path -- even in a note, comment, or journal.  The deviantART community has flourished and prospered in the past 13 years, and we're thankful for that, and for you, every day.

No one loves a birthday celebration more than I do, but before I break out the cake and balloons, I want to sincerely thank everyone who has touched my life over the years and helped cultivate the site I believed in to make it the artistic community I always knew it could be.  Thank you.
