Before we look ahead to the expanse of artistic potential that is the new year, we wanted to look back at some of the amazing things the deviantART community accomplished in 2011. We continue to be humbled, year after year, by the nurturing power of the community home grown by deviants like you. Artists and art enthusiasts of every style you can imagine consider deviantART their home on the Internet for all things creative, and their talent and enthusiasm inspire our community to greater heights than ever thought possible.

With 2012 now upon us, we want leap into the New Year on a creative note! To get the year started off right, deviantART will donate 30% of sales made between December 31st, 2011 and January 1st, 2012 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles, CA, time to the International Child Art Foundation.
(Qualifying sales include purchases on deviantWEAR, Prints, Premium Memberships, and Groups.) The International Child Art Foundation looks to employ the power of the arts for the development of children’s innate creativity and intrinsic empathy — preconditions for a better world.
From all of us in the deviantART family, we wish you a very happy, healthy, and creative New Year!
