We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!



We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!























We Love Artists' Alley










We're back at Comic-Con!


Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-Con again.
















Six deviant scholarships


We increased our number of scholarships from two to six this year, and have chosen our talented recipients. These six amazing deviants submitted their Portfolios to the Comic-Con group and have been chosen by DeevElliott to showcase their work in Artists' Alley. Each scholarship recipient will be able to display their work in the Alley and receive critique from top industry professionals.

Five Kick Ass Panels










DeviantART is hosting five panels, discussing important art-related topics with extraordinary guest panelists. We'll even be giving away deviantART swag!

Join veteran cosplayer, Yaya Han, aka yayacosplay, for a stimulating discussion about the many social aspects of cosplay. Yaya will answer a number of questions, including: Why do we cosplay?

Cosplay Forever




We're hosting a cosplay art show that takes place from Thursday - Saturday, upstairs near the autograph area. This collection of the best and the brightest of cosplay comes from over 15,000 submissions to deviantART. The prints will be available through a silent auction with bids starting at $10. All proceeds will go to the Schreiner Burn Hospital, which uses cosplayers to cheer up patients in the hospital.


We are also having a cosplay group photo. Every cosplayer at Comic-Con is welcomed to join our epic display of cosplay at its finest. Join us on Friday, July 13th at 4PM on the Convention Center roof. If you want to be a part of this, be sure to follow our deviantART Twitter to get the latest updates.











We'll be hosting a deviantART Benefit Art Show featuring cosplay photography and donating the proceeds.
