Hello and welcome to Staff Member interview of deviantART Staff Appreciation Week! So, here is interview with awesome ArtBIT!
1. How did you discover deviantART, and what made you stay?
I've first discovered deviantART when I was searching for some Photoshop tutorials years ago. When I've submitted my first Photoshop works, I received some really great feedback from the community, and that inspired me to create more, and that is what made dA my home
2. Tell us the story behind your username and/or prior dA accounts.
I've only used one dA account, this one. When I've first tried creating an account on dA, all the usernames that I used to sport on various websites, were already taken, and I had to think of a new one. Since two of my greatest passions in life are art and prog

Introducing #Arts-and-Health: interviewHello deviants! Welcome to Introducing interview about Arts-and-Health with its Founder, Aeirmid!
#Q1: Hi Jade! First, thank you so much for participating! Second, tell us a bit about yourself!
Aeirmid: Hi! Thanks for having me. I am the CV for Photomanipulation here on deviantART, and I've been photomanipulating for about 10 years as time allows. In real life I am about halfway through with a Ph.D., and I live with a golden retriever. I enjoy things that are brightly colored, unique, and really well-done. I'm pretty outgoing and like meeting new people, and generally I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for getting things done.
#Q2: What do you aim to do in the deviantart community?
Aeirmid: I want to see more collaboration, and I want to see people reaching outside of their comfort levels and pushing themselves to learn more about their art form. I think it's too easy to become complacent aroun

On dA, I am involved in projects such as FeedbackFrenzy and of course projecteducate!

A Celebration of AgeGetting old is seen by so many as something to avoid, complain about, joke about and perhaps even ignore until it won't go away any longer. Age for many when they pass a certain milestone of years, becomes a curse or something to be ashamed of. Hair colours are constantly covered over in favour of looking young and ageless as much as possible.
Skin is constantly plastered with all manner of creams and lotions to try and prevent the rivers of life carving a niche into the flesh. Bodies are worked until they can work no longer to try and force them into retaining their youthful shape and feel but in reality we don't stop and recognise, not even for a moment - that age is beautiful.
We forget, and barely acknowledge for most of the time, that age is associated with increased diversity. You will find a more diverse people in a room of seventy year old people, than you will in a room of seventeen year old people. The wisdom, experience and attitude of

Keep in Touch!
Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
