This is a news article, posted once every two weeks, choc-a-block full of Senior happenings and initiatives, stunning visual features, an awesome mini-interview and much, much more!
Even though this is mainly Senior orientated, if you have something you want to promote or are just looking for something generally, senior or not, we invite you all to take a gander.

The Senior Photo Album
Welcome to the Senior Photo Album. Our goal each issue is to expose you to new, incredible artists and art. In honor of the new Senior Tick that `TickedOffTeam has, this issue of the Senior Photo Album features the theme "Ticks".
- According to Wikipedia, Tick is the common name for the small arachnids in superfamily Ixodoidea.
- According to the comics, The Tick is an absurdist spoof of comic book superheroes, created by cartoonist Ben Edlund in 1986 as a newsletter mascot for the New England Comics chain of Boston area comic stores.
- According to deviantART, Ticks are deviants who gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action.
The Senior Photo Album would like your ideas! Please send us your suggestions, deviations, and theme ideas so we can make them part of a future feature article. Send a note to `cypher-neo with the Subject "Senior Photo Album Suggestion". All notes will be responded to.
Our first feature is a Tick of the "recognized deviant" variety. `catluvr2 is a cheese-loving deviant of many trades, including being a superb emoticonist. Many deviants make use of `catluvr2's emotes on a daily basis, especially the emotes depicting "FAIL" vehicles.
