Welcome Home!

Our group is for the members of DeviantArt who live in the Grand Canyon State of Arizona, the 6th largest state in America, or who, at the very least, visit. This is an idea place for all Deviants residing in Arizona to hang out, meet up, and have fun!

But we do have a few rules we ask you to follow.


:bulletred: :pointr: While we know DeviantArt is full of amazingly talented members, we ask that submissions to this group be based in Arizona, or done in Arizona. If you live outside of Arizona, you may join, but please keep this rule in mind.

:bulletyellow: :pointr: You may submit journals about upcoming events in Arizona, but keep in mind the admins will decide if they are appropriate or not. You are able to set up devmeets here!

:bulletgreen: :pointr: As far as mature content goes, stick to DeviantArt's rules on the matter and you'll be fine here.

:bulletblue: :pointr: Be supportive to your fellow member! This is a safe haven were members are free to show off their talent without ridicule, spite, etc.

:bulletpurple: :pointr: This is a Zero Tolerance group. We will ban and report any member posting racist, bigoted, sexist, slanderous, hate filled content in any form (art, comments, notes, etc.).

More Info

We want to inspire and assist, we hope all our members benefit from being a part of this group and we hope to offer a safe place for members to show off their abilities! Stay inspired, Arizona!

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to contact :iconravyncrescent: via Note.

Way too many times in life I was told something just wasn't for me. Even now doing comics, cosplaying, vending at conventions, I often get called a poser, and way too many other women do, as well.

That's why we need VSEPR.

VSEPR is a science super hero comic book written and drawn by actual women scientists, for everyone to enjoy.

The book is almost complete and we would like to get it printed and into the hands of fans! This isn't a comic about women in science, specifically, it's simply done by two real life scientists who wanted to do a comic about something they enjoyed, and make it relatable to everyone! That's the beauty of it, by not focusing on the issue, they are showing that women working in comics and scientific fields shouldn't be a big deal, it should be just as common as anything else. And the best part? It's already so far along in it's kickstarter that it's nearly a guarantee, despite it only being up a few days! This should tell everyone how important this comic is.

About this project

VSEPR is a superhero comic by Arrowsmith Studios where science is the superpower.


Lance is a scientist trying to make a name for himself in the renewable energy industry when he finds that there is some dirty competition. Lance finds he must fight with science to save his career. He is helped by Becky, the quirky brains of the operation, who supplies him with fancy gadgets and the newest science and technology.


 As two artistically-inclined individuals in the field of science, we think STEAM is really important and wanted to combine art with science with superheroes in order to create a fun and family-friendly way to get excited and learn about science. Although this is only the first volume, we hope to get not only this volume printed with this Kickstarter, but also to eventually continue on to create more of this comic and/or science based art.

READ: Click to read the first half of the comic online.


This kickstarter will allow us to finish and print VSEPR volume 1. If we finish that goal ($700) we can give you even more cool science stuff.


You already know about the comic, but with a $25 dollar contribution, you not only get the comic, but also this sweet exclusive science T-shirt we designed for this kickstarter,that Becky wears in the comic. It says "Think like a proton: stay positive" with the VSEPR logo on the back. Comes in all sizes.


At $1000, we're going to put bonus material in the back of the final, 36-page comic book that all our backers of $5 and over will get, plus our gratitude for being so awesome.

At $1500, all backers who are getting a shipped product ($10 and up) will get some EXTRA special science buttons designed by the artist and the writer shipped with their reward, and even more gratitude for being awesome.

At $?????, we will have to think of something else to give you, but we promise it will be as awesome as we can manage.

Risks and challenges

In order to keep this comic going, we need readers and supporters, like you.
This Kickstarter will fund the printing costs for the first volume and shipping to send rewards to our backers, but we do need to maintain a readership to make VSEPR the educational and meaningful comic that we know it can be.
Arrowsmith Studios is a self-published, active participant at local comic conventions such as Amazing Arizona Comic Con and Phoenix Comic Con, and we try hard to release a weekly comic page update on at least one comic we are working on online to read for free. With your support we hope to continue to work hard to bring you amazing comics.

Hey Az buddies, DeviantArt has doubled the premium membership cost, without offering anything new, and never even announced it. Here's a working petition to sign that may help >… thank you:)
