deviantART deviantMEET

Posted on October 21, 2013

Join us for a deviantMEET in Hollywood!

DeviantART's headquarters are located in Hollywood, and we're hosting a deviantMEET in our own backyard!

You're Invited!

HDR Hollywood by xraystyle

Come for the speech, stay for the meet!

Whether you've attended previous deviantART events, or you want to make this your first, this deviantMEET promises to be an event unlike any before.  Opening with an exclusive storytelling session, deviantART CEO and Co-Founder, Angelo Sotira (spyed), will share behind-the-scenes stories about deviantART's inception and formative years. Then, stick around for the fun, traditional deviantMEET-type activities – sketching with friends, chatting with staff, and maybe even walking away with a bit of swag.

Map to deviantMEET

WeWork Hollywood

  • Location: 7083 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028
  • Date & Time: Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 at 7:00 PM
  • Admission: FREE, all-ages event!
  • What to Bring: Laptops/tablets, sketchbooks, cameras

It's a rare opportunity that deviantART's CEO gets to share the vision of the company, where we came from, and where we're headed offline and outside of his Journals.  We wanted to invite local deviants to have some fun with our staff, hear the tales that made us what we are today, and generally recreate the friendships you've made online at this unique offline opportunity.

After Angelo's talk, you can ask staff your burning questions, hang out and create art with supplies you've brought with you, and enjoy some free snacks. We might even have some devious swag to go around.

Feel free to bring your favorite digital tablet, iPad, sketchbooks, notepads, cameras, and laptops if you feel up to it! We can't wait to meet with you!



On Wednesday, November 20th, deviants of all ages are invited to join us in Hollywood!  Whether you've attended previous deviantART events, or you want to make this your first, this deviantMEET promises to be unlike any other!

I would attend but i'm afraid I went to Hollywood this Saturday and if I asked my mother to take me, I know she'd say no because of money. :heart: I'm sorry my friends.

I'm so stoked to be going! It's going to be so fun meeting a bunch of fellow artists! :D (Big Grin) I've just created my OC, too, so I'm excited to share my art (though not very good) with all my fellow Deviants! This is my first meet, so I am a tad nervous, too. I'm pretty sure I'll get over my shyness and nervousness pretty quickly, though. ^^

Quick question: How long is the event? :3

Shyree Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013
Thanks for sharing all of your enthusiasm with us! Don't worry, there will be lots of other artists just like you at the deviantMEET. Your nervousness will go away once you get here. Deviants have an excellent way of talking to each other and you'll forget your nerves in no time. We're really excited to see everyone on Thursday!
