arcipello's artwork is instantly recognisable. His vibrant colours and sci-fi scenes are breathtaking at times, pulling you into a world where man and machine live in colourful harmony.

In recognition as being one of the most successful artists in our deviantART community, we're delighted to award this month's Deviousness Award to arcipello. Congratulations Daniel!

Holiday Card Project 2008This year marks deviantART's fifth annual Holiday Card Project! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects deviants from all around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating get well holiday cards.Holiday Card Project 2008 by Heidi
Last year the Project received well over 1300 holiday cards sent in by more than 750 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. The cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by dA members at the UCI Medical Center in Orange, California.

Dealing with online copyright violations WHAT YOU WON'T FIND HEREDealing with online copyright violations by RockstarVanity
Before I get started I'd like to make it clear that this news article does not deal with how to protect your work online (watermarks etc), whether or not you should post your work online or whether or not you should take steps to deal with copyright violations if the person committing them isn't profiting from your work or claiming credit for having created it.
It also does not contain a response to people who say "You're lucky your work is good enough to get ripped" although if it did, it would say something like "Don't be so stupid, theft isn't a compliment. If someone stole something from your shop you wouldn't sit back and feel thankful that your stuff was good enough to steal". But I'm not getting into that here.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE
This article contains information about some websites where rips occur, how to contact these sites and what information you should provide to help your report be dealt with

deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius. The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success. In order to realize our vision, our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values. Our core values are listed in :faq8
