The grand-winner entry in our "Seven Deadly Sins Contest" has been made into a billboard in San Francisco, CA! To celebrate, we're flying the winner, ~Anarki3000, from Romania, all the way to San Francisco to check it out -  and YOU'RE invited!

Join us! Come see the billboard, take pictures, meet ~Anarki3000, and congratulate them, talk with deviantART staff members, and interact with other deviants! Remember to bring a camera or camera phone. We're excited to document this special event that brings deviantART to the physical world, and we want to see all of you having fun!

We'll be going to Yerba Buena Gardens after taking pictures of the billboard!

On Saturday, February 18th, deviants of all ages are invited to come together and see the billboard! We'll gather at the billboard and spend some time meeting and mingling. DeviantART staff will be there to meet fellow deviants and to discuss all things deviantART-related! Around 3:30, we'll head to Yerba Buena Gardens to grab some food and spend time making and sharing art.

In December 2011, we challenged you to depict one of the seven deadly sins and create a billboard advertisement either for or against it, using at least 3 images from #StockProject. ~Anarki3000 was named the winner by Oleg Tscheltzoff, Chairman of Fotolia Inc., and won a trip to San Francisco to see his work in person.

DeviantART staff will be equipped with a supply of stickers to hand out to attendees at the deviantMEET. We'll have surprises to handout throughout the afternoon for the deviants who come! Join us!

Location  -  5th & Folsom in San Francisco, CA

Time  -  Saturday, February 18th – 2:30 PM

I'm Attending!

I'm going to be in San Francisco tomorrow for Animation on Display anyway, but the problem is they're doing "Friendship is Magic: Intro to the Brony Phenomenon With Bronies Of Northern California" at 2:00 PM. [link]

And I'd have to walk 21 blocks to get there.

I once attended a conceptual art conference in SF. It was rather expensive but it ran all weekend and had workshops galore! It was great, I learned so much in that one simple weekend! Considering that experience, I'm wondering what the point of this deviant meet is about. Is it just to take pictures of a billboard and meet other deviant artist? Will it be of benefit to attend or is it just a promotional stunt for deviant art? I'm not sure what to expect.

:confused:

I have passed that sign several times now since I live here in the city. I had no idea a Deviant Art member was behind it. That's pretty cool.

I might swing by. I'll be out there anyway and the con in J-town doesn't look worth it to me. Good thing I looked at the comments in here though, I didn't realize the bridge was closed. That would have sucked. San Mateo bridge, here I come I guess.

I still haven't decided yet whether or not I should go. The location shouldn't be hard to get to (rather close to an art store, and where Wondercon usually is... Not counting this year...) But, The same day that is DevMEET also happens to be my birthday. So it's kinda weird coin toss for me.

How late will the event run?What about parking? Is there going to be seating? Is the food from vendors? Or is it a dining experience? Is it indoors or outdoors? You have left many questions not answered:) I want to go but need more info than what is posted in this news piece:wave:
