The twice-monthly article covering news, contests, and other happenings all around the deviantART Emoticon Community. We will also feature interviews, art features, and more. This zine is a collective work of many emoticonists. You can see our full staff list, as well as find additional information on emoticon community events by visiting the official zine group #Emotizine.
Note this is our first zine article, so things are still a bit experimental and we may have missed an item or two. Don't be alarmed. Be sure to follow us over the next few weeks as we broaden our features and get things settled.

The Emoticon Teams have been on a bit of an unexpected hiatus. However, pair-ups are scheduled for mid-month, so stay-tuned.
The Emoticon Community Spirit Initiative began in October 2011. The idea was to have a different emoticonist every week host an event to help get them and other members of the community more involved. This section will give a synopsis of the most recent Spirit hostings. For a full run-down of past hosts and events, please visit this page.
