Tidewater-Deviants is up and running!

If you're here, then you're wondering what this group is all about.  Well, it's about a few things: Deviants, art, and of course the Tidewater area of Virginia.  Those are the main focal points of the group, though not the full scope of its existence.

As for why I founded such a group in the first place, well, here's a bit of background:

I currently reside in Newport News, but prior to September 2009 I lived in Arlington, just outside of Washington, D.C.  I participated in CAPITOL-DEVIANTS, which was a ton of fun even though it was sometimes hard to get people together for meets.  Aside from getting together, though, it was a chance to talk with and enjoy the artistic side of a variety of different folks from the area.  It was as much a learning experience for me as it was a social one.

When I moved down to Newport News, I took a hiatus of sorts from dA, and focused on getting my life settled in my new home.  After a while though, I missed having the experience that I had with CAPITOL-DEVIANTS, and I decided I would see if I could get folks down here interested in something similar.  I missed having good times with friends who shared a common interest: art.

And so here I am, forging bravely ahead into the realm of the new dA groups creator, to see if maybe we can get a good thing going.

Hey, I'm a local deviant, as well, and currently live in Newport News, VA. I'm an artist and photographer, and would love to post up some art and photography as pride towards our community. Except I see you're not accepting members. Is it possible for some of us residental folk to join?

Hi. I'm a local Deviant. I wanted to join but it said that you weren't accepting members right now.

I'm into different things. I'm not a very good artist but I try.
