I can't believe that deviantART has been around for 14 years and that I've been here almost that whole time. My first account was created 13 years ago and I've since transitioned through two other usernames (before changes were possible) to land here. I still maintain two accounts, this one to share my own art and another account
that has 12 years of history of favorites and followed artists from over the years that I still use for that purpose. There's nothing else like it on the Internet and it's been cool to see it grow over time.
When I first started it was mostly to follow other artists (I was taking a break from photography for a few years) and found great inspiration here that ultimately led me back to the camera to create my own art again.
Happy birthday deviantART and here's hoping for many more to come!
