My little white and gold dress. All of my students are talking about this silly thing the whole day so I have no choice but to get this out of my brain. ;) (personally I see it as blue and black dress with wrong white balance. No question there.)

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`Artgerm has very humble beginnings here on deviantART. He began like you or I, just another deviant in a sea of many, and he quietly introduced his art to us, one work at a time. It was immediately recognizable that he had talent, but had not refined it quite yet. Over the years, he took the communities feedback to heart, and offered up his own back. Along the way he became one of the most recognized artists on the site.

And not by following trends or holding his popularity up as a mirror to others, but by sheer hard work and determination and commitment to those who considered themselves fans of his work and believers in his talent.

His passion and dedication can serve as an example to all of us here. Following your own road may take longer, but as you can see, it is well worth the work.

So congratulations to `Artgerm, recipient of deviousness for May of 2008.
