Hello dear art and deviantART lovers! :wave:

Today, we come with a new message to you: We need a new team!!! :P
We - that is me, eschlehahn, and my partner in crime, Jen (aka jenepooh), and we made some decisions, yes yes! :D

Founded several years ago under a different name first and then re-named, DELVE was created to feature art and artists to be found at the deviantART website. Because the team always consisted of members who are no professionals, but enthusiastically contributed their free time, energy and love for art, this zine was a great learning and arty experience for us all. We faced ups and downs, and team members came and went as time went by. Just as life goes sometimes. So it happened that DELVE had been dormant for nearly two years. However - for some, the memory of the joy this zine brought us, never left. And so we decided to try reviving DELVE and see how it goes. We managed to bring a small issue out last September, but our team is still very, very small.

So this is where YOU might come in: We are seeking people who would like to join our team and contribute to the individual sections of the magazine. We are not specifically searching for professionals, just for people who share our passion for all things art-related. It is by no means required to contribute to each and every issue (so sporadic guest contributors are also welcome), Still, we would need people who are reliable and open to communication within the team. As things are right now, we need to completely re-organize ourselves, so you would have plenty choices what you can do at DELVE! For the lesser experienced among you, we are listing some suggestions below this text in an annex.

In case you are interested, please either comment below or drop us a note. We'd be happy to welcome you!

Moreover, I kindly ask you to share this call around so it can reach more people who might be interested. Thank you! :heart:

Eva (& Jen)



Some suggestions for "interest fields" in which one could contribute:

Contributors are welcome basically in all fields that dA offers art categories for. There are some which are most prominent (as in: mainstream art), for which we definitely need contributors. But I'd also specifically encourage that people with non-mainstream interests pipe up. =)

The core focus of DELVE is:

Traditional art
Digital art
Artisan crafts
Film & animations
Manga & anime
Fan art
Resources & stock images

And beyond this, as mentioned before, we'd be happy to welcome people with niche interests to make these more known to the dA community!


Some ideas how to contribute:

Layout creator/contributor
Text editor
Art features (lots of 'em!!! :D)
Interviews with artists
Articles related to art e.g. art history, art genres, art mediums, societal impact of art, artist biographies etc. etc. - the possibilities are practically endless. :P
Presentations and reports e. g. of dA community projects, DevMeets, contests, treasure hunts, etc. etc. pp.

Any more ideas? Contact us and tell us what you think! :eager:

I am extremely interested in doing something involving skin art (tattoos, piercings, scarification, body mods, etc).
That is, If you don't already have someone already doing it. :dalove:

Hiya there ~her-behavior ! :wave:

Actually, I'd love to have someone in one of the next issues to focus on something like what you suggested. And no, we do not have someone taking care of such niche themes yet. So I'd be very happy if you want to contribute to DELVE. May I send you an invitation to the DELVE team? This way, you'd get access to the admin area of #DelveMag and thus the internal forum where we discuss the planning for the next issue. :)

I would love that. I apologize for the delay in my response, I had a few things come up. I'm thrilled that you would give me the opportunity. :eager:
eschlehahn Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Wonderful! :aww:

I just sent you an invitation to the team. In case you have questions how to access the admin area, or if anything else ist unclear, please don't hesitate to ask. :hug:

oh, I won't! :hug: :heart: I'm Uber excited.

What's the magazine for anyway? Is it purely an internet thing?
eschlehahn Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
Yes it is. We distribute it virtually as PDF files via this site. :nod:

If you'd be interested in participating, please have a look at the last issues and tell us what you think you might be able to do within the team. :)

Wow... That sounds like a blast! I'd love to help in any way I can (literature, photography, editing)

I'd be up for helping out and contributing - I already collect lots of interesting art going around dA, and I'm also a graphic designer so I can help with layout and copywriting duties too. :)
eschlehahn Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
If you would be interested in doing layout besides other things in the zine, this would be great! We always had troubles having enough people for this work, so I'd gladly welcome you on board. Since I am at work now, I just wanted to give you a short feedback - I will equip your with further details & information later. Hang in there! :D

Count me in :)

Work has pretty much turned me into a zombie, something which I wish to remedy, and being part of an interesting artistic endeavour sounds ideal.

Hmm, Not sure exactly where or how I could help.
My forte is in the letters (or so I've been told).

Let's hope a great deal of talented individuals join up soon! :w00t:

This is great! Welcome to DELVE! :D

There is another one expressing interest in literature but that is no problem. Lit is always a neglected genre so it could not hurt to have two people having interest in there. I will get back with a more detailed response as soon as I can. Right now, I am stuck with a huge load of things to get done at work before the end of the week, so I apologize for the short answer here for now. We will read each other soon!

:wave: Eva

If you get something going I'd like to join!
eschlehahn Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
Wonderful! Hi and welcome! Just have a look at the DELVE page and the interest fields I mentioned above and tell me what you think you can and want to do. I am stuck with a huge load of things to do at work these days, so I might be slow in responding. But be sure I'll get back to you with a more in-depth response. :)
