Emoticon Stuffs! 

8 deviants said :heart:
3 deviants said November NaNoEmo 2014November is approaching fast and Mirz123 and I are happy to announce that the November NaNoEmo will be running this year!
What is NaNoEmo?
NaNoEmo is a fun emoticon challenge hosted every November to match up with NaNoWriMo in the literature community. Over the last 3 years we have had a fair number of emoticonists taking part and some fantastic emotes appearing all through the designated month.
The main purpose of the challenge is to encourage emoticonists to make emotes throughout the month of November. The most common challenge undertaken is to make 30 emotes in 30 days, though others choose to set alternative targets which better suit their other commitments or art style.
Whilst our previous NaNoEmo event hosted earlier this year was restricted to only visual purpose emotes, the November event returns to the 'normal' format where any emote style is accepted. So it is completely up to you whether you o

:santa: This year, I volunteered to take over the project because Krissi001 discovered she was unable to due to time constraints.  Bear with me, as it's my first time organizing such a project. :slow:

No deviants said Emote Secret Santa 2014 - 1 day left to signup!What is Emote Secret Santa?
EmoteSecretSanta is a fun community project which runs each winter for the emote community. The aim of the project is to encourage emoticonists to make a special gift for a fellow community member and share some art around the holiday season.
How does it work?
Anyone interested in joining the project must send a note to the group (details below) before the sign up deadline.
Once the deadline has passed, each person will be assigned one emoticonist for whom them must make a themed emote gift. In return, they will receive an emote from someone else in the Secret Santa.
These gifts are made in secret, uploaded to and sent to the group via note. On Christmas day all of the gifts will be revealed in an article featured on EmoteSecretSanta.
Who can take part?
The Secret Santa is open to anyone who can make emoticons. It d

About Faves/Watches & A Small Request

If you feature me or my art in a journal or News article, please comment and let me know. I appreciate the support and would love to drop by and post a personal "thank you" for the feature.

In the past, I really loved to visit the pages of my visitors and thank them for faving my work and/or for devWatching me. Unfortunately, I now receive so many faves and watches a day that if I thanked for all of them, I would never have time to create new art. So, if you have favorited one of my pieces, or added me to your Watch list, please know I am very grateful and accept my sincerest thanks.

*** Cross-posted ***

Jim's dad passed away yesterday. Cancer is tragic under normal circumstance. However, in his case, it's particularly terrible as he felt fine and was in good health. While going in for what he thought was a minor issue he was experiencing, he was told he only had a few months to live. He hoped he would have a year or so. It turned out to be just under 3 months. Thankfully, the hospital was wonderful and made sure he was pain free at the end. But it was terrible ending. Jim, his brother, our son, and I were with him. So very very sad.

Our life has been topsy-turvey the last few months as we were the ones caring for him, taking him to the doctor, etc. We're now arranging the funeral and getting his affairs together. All smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. *sigh*

Obviously, I'll be busy and won't be able to do as much art. I do have plans to finish NaNoEmo, though I'm not sure if I'll get the full 30 done. Relativity is business, so we will be working on that, but it will be at a lot slower pace. Hopefully in a few weeks things will settle and we'll have a bit more time.

I'll still be around dA, but again, not as much. I still read every single comment, but replying will probably have to a wait a bit longer. If someone needs to reach me, I'll be checking Notes. Also, you can drop me an email at relativityseries[at] I check that account every day, so I should get back to you soon.

Continued thanks to everyone. This is a very difficult time. Jim's dad lived nearby and we saw him all the time; he was a big part of our family and always around at gatherings/holiday. And his passing comes less than a year after my mother's death. The loss will be felt deeply.
