Our buddies from coast to coast and beyond!
EDIT: I have recently lowered the number of votes required to approve submissions and new members. I apologize for those submissions that have expired. Previously, to approve anything required three votes, and I believe there were less than three active administrators. Hopefully I've fixed this issue going forward. (Jan 3, 2016)

It's off to a new start for this Calgary art group!  Just in time for the chilly weather to blow in (on Sunday I swear there was a sprinkling of snow on my balcony). I hope everyone's enjoying the fall colours while they last.

Like the journal title says, what would you like to see from this art group?

I would personally love to feature local artists who are attending Otafest // Calgary Comic Expo. If you have an exhibition at ACAD or Art Central, are participating in a local show and sale, or want a shout out for your auction at the Gorilla House, etc., I would be more than willing to give you prominent journal space.  Send me pictures please =) I check Deviantart almost every day - just shoot Starlitdragon a note and I will get back to you in a timely manner.

Aside from features, I'm pretty open for ideas - contests, cowboys, colourful cows ... anything that screams "CALGARY!!" to you.

And please, keep those submissions rolling! As always, thank you to everyone who has submitted. For those who are new or haven't looked at the submission criteria in a while, take a peek here:…

In particular, we are looking for:
- Original Art
- Quality / your personal best  

If this group starts showing more activity, I will be pleased to add more admins. Should you have an idea for a program / activity you want to run, pitch it and you're more than welcome to jump aboard.

Warning to Calgarians and surrounding area

If you get a call from some people claiming to be "Window Service Centre" about them receiving errors from your computer. Hang up immediately. this is a scam where they fool you into downloading a mobile desktop program that will let them sit right back at home and access ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL FILES.

They've called me three times now that I know of -_-''''' Each time its a male voice, accent suggests east Indian or Pakistani. They're very pushy. this is the most aggressive Phishing scam I've come across. they claim to be from New York, but the number is local :I They've hidden their number on Caller ID's now but they're still there....

Anyway. Let me know if you've gotten this call before.
They've called me three times XD

Here's the exact message my dad posted on the interwebs about them:
This caller (accent suggested middle east immigrant) claimed to be from the "Windows Service Center". They got my wife on the line and told her that they received several error messages from our computer. They then had my wife click on a computer popup. Fortuneately she called me. I discovered that they had installed Imi_rescue.exe on our computer, and that they were attempting to get my wife to open a portal to allow them to take remote control of our computer. I asked for the caller's manager, and another middle east imigrant got on the line and said his name was Alex Jones. He couldn't even pronounce Jones properly, so he spelled it! As if! Watch out for these degenerates, they are obviously phishers. How they managed to bounce their phone call through 403-697-0566 is a pretty sophisticated trick suggesting organized crime. Turn off your computer modem if these paracites call you, and check for misterious programs on your computer.

No this isn't fake :I
