Wow, this year has gone so fast...
:omg:

My term as a Community Volunteer is over, I have to take off my "^" and have to say goodbye to the Community Relations team. I have to admit that it was difficult at times to keep up with everything here on deviantART besides my full-time job, but I enjoyed working with the team and I particularly enjoyed the great support from the community in terms of DD suggestions, supportive comments and feedback on journal features and articles during the PE Week back in August. 

Thank you very much for your precious support,
and special thanks to Kaz-D and Moonbeam13!
:iconbowplz:

I don't know when a new Community Volunteer for abstract and surreal photography will be announced. Make sure to add communityrelations to your watchlist to get the latest updates of the Community Relations team.

Until then please send your Daily Deviation suggestions to Kaz-D or 3wyl 
who are looking after general photography.


Have you ever thought of giving back to the community?


And before I get way too sentimental, I'll leave you with a summary of the monthly DD roundups and an overview of the PE week for abstract and surreal.

DD ROUNDUPS



PE WEEK



And here's my last DD feature for abstract and surreal:

Rothko by willko

It's not just a feature, it's meant as a statement. Or as Rothko himself said:


:peace:

There are a few other Community Volunteers leaving the team today,
please head over to communityrelations and show them some love!


Keep on rocking the community!

(You are why I started caring about DD's and suggesting them too..)

Quite a legacy you leave behind dear friend. Thank you for all your hard work and support
to so many Artists, Florian. Cheers.

Already?! :wow: ... I'm going to miss sending suggestions to you, and I wonder if I'll ever continue doing that anyway!
Most of the CVs I've contacted so far were nice, but you're my favourite, and I'm sincere about that! You did a wonderful job, Florian, and you've been very patient, respectful, helpful, caring and o so kind! Thank you for always using nice words to accept or (kindly) reject my suggestions. ^^

All the best for you,

Nawel. :blackrose:

I have to thank you for your support, Nawel, and for your very kind words as well. Maybe I'll re-apply one day. ;)

All the best wishes to you, too. Have a nice weekend! :hug:

I'm sure you have opened the doors to surreal and abstract art for many ones.

Now, you have won a little rest!

Thank you very much, Stéphane. :)

Actually, I have received so much positive feedback lately that I'm already missing the opportunity to feature more abstract and surreal works as Daily Deviations. I will return to making more journal features in the next time, but I really need a little break at the moment. :nod:

Thanks so much, Rowan! :aww:

Yeah, I somehow expected it as everytime when I had featured minimalist artwork certain parts of the community started arguing that "this is not really art, because it's just a line/circle/gradient/etc. and my four-year-old could do that in Photoshop within 5 seconds." That is why I intentionally saved up "Rothko" for the very last day of my term. ;)

Irgendwie schon. Ich genieße es jetzt erst einmal, wieder ein "ganz normaler" Benutzer zu sein, und wenn's mir allzu langweilig werden sollte, kann ich mich einem halben Jahr wieder bewerben. ;)
