For little over a year, I've been doing these "Interview Features" as way to help introduce, push, and promote artists to new audiences and to help out the community here on DeviantART. I really didn't know how/if this idea was going to pan out and I'm VERY glad to say that it did work out very well. I know that things didn't actually go as planned though Certain people didn't get their interviews. Certain ideas never panned out correctly and there's still a MAJOR backlog of people I still need to get to. But understand that it was all because of you wonderful people that I felt the need to try to do these features and that it's YOU all here who motivate me to continue to help support new/great artists on a daily basis. Whether it means to request your work into groups, to feature your crazy-awesome works of art, or to interview and promote your stuff, I try to do it all on top of my everyday job. Alas not everything will happen according to plan since we all have our own personal lives to tend to. We get sick, we need get aways sometimes, we feel like taking a break, we get depressed, unexpected events...any and every bit of this happens. But I try to go it all the way and at least give my all in any way I can to balance all of this stuff out and have a good time doing it
So before the next Interview feature, I would like to use this journal as a massive "THANK YOU" for the opportunity to share my time with you all. It's always inspiring to see artists evolve and grow over time. And even in this roughly-year or so that I've been doing these interviews, I've been delighted to see your evolution in your art Here are the interviews I have conducted thus far and please feel free to take a look all of them! Some people took part in the interviews when they first started their accounts, and when you look at their gallery now....You'd be amazed!!! My watchers list has grown considerably and there may have been some of these interviews you've missed. Here they are in the chronological order they were conducted:
