As we strive together towards a more creative life, sharing our creations with one another for discussion, we inevitably contribute to breaking down barriers of the mind that plague others from beginning their own creative journey. This is a great positivity that we collectively contribute to society together, for 16 effing years as of today!!!!!!!!! If you can believe it.

I wanted to raise a quick toast to unicorns, ponies and bloodlines of drawn horses. Big ups to llamas, hodor and pikachu. A special celebration for art that some find exciting and others find strange, because those artworks truly push the boundaries. And of course to the best of the best gems from our community, that everyone would agree are great contributions of art in pop culture.

Thank you for making DeviantArt great for 16 years!

I especially want to thank our extended family of team members past and present. Sometimes it is rock and roll around here, sometimes it is the highest of highs and other times its just not fun. But at the heart of it all is a great cause we all deeply share a lifelong passion for.

Cheers to many more years of being DeviantArt, a force of inspiration and good people, here to nurture our world creatively.

Happy 16th Birthday DeviantArt! You already got an official DeviantArt Lexus 3 years ago, now Fella can finally drive it!

The join date doesn't mean when the website was first launched. Besides, spyed is the CEO of deviantART, not the creator.
