|hmmm, this is more to feature great art and perhaps to show what I intend to buy with time to come then a real wishlist|
What to say about me ...
My main interests are to read books (the more pages the better ) and to travel and take walks. I love to walk in the forests, on the mountains, near the sea ... and on these walks I do always carry my camera with me
Most people call me crazy because I take so much photos, but I find them great and worthy to be taken ... and here on dA I've finally found some people that are as crazy as I am
Oh, and I do not only collect photos that I take and art here on dA, I also collect stones and feathers and shells and leaves and sand from different shores and stamps and coins and photos of clouds and lighthouses in different kinds and many things more

Why giving credit is importantI've been very vocal about the fact that I do not like the way DeviantArt treats copyrights. In reacting to official DMCA takedown requests - and only DMCA takedown requests - DA is doing the bare minimum they are legally required to do. The category "costumization" and specifically "signature banners" is basically an open invitation to post stuff you've stolen elsewhere http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/customization/icons/sigbanners/ Thousands of DA "artists" offer free renders as stock - characters taken from tumblr, pinterest, pixiv and other sights with backgrounds removed. They often come with half-assed credit lines such as "if original artist complain, I will delete", and DA doesn't give a fuck! In fact, they want as many people as possible to join the race for internet fame, because more people means more core members and higher advertising revenues.
I've commented and written journals about people who wouldn't give proper credit to artists whose work they had used.
Happy holidays from deviantART!
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and Nobody with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

Holiday Card Project 2012
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
