Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Hi I'm a 35,5 year old man from the Netherlands, I'm a father of 2 children a daughter Vera of 8,5 and a son Meallan of 6,5. I have a lovely wife Wendy > :iconwhisje: of 29,5 and we are married for 8,5 years now. I run two groups here on DA as a founder, that is: :iconeddie-the-head-club: and :iconmetal-mascots: :new: and one as a co-founder, that is :icondutch-photographers:

Atm I'm having some lack of inspiration, I'm feeling lazy, so not so very much comes from my fingers.

My crafts in art are multiple, I once liked to draw tribals, now I shoot (macro)photos of nature and write poetry, mostly bringing things under attention for some awareness. Sometimes I make a step to something else, like photo-manips. But only when I feel the need to do so, like when I'm inspired enough, whahaha.

Hope to please my watchers and future watchers once more with some nice work of arts.

Time to make change

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 1:57 PM

Hi all,

I'm going to undertake some surgery:

A vasectomy, small but painful:


A gastric band surgery, big one and dangerous.
But I have to do something, seeming no diet helped out for me.

When it all will be taking place, well the smull one somewhere in May after the tenth of may.
And the other is still in progress for acceptance.

Hope to be a different men when I'm finished. Not by character offcourse.

Cheers for now,



Here is a collection of my favourite spring deviations. Isn't spring beautiful?

"For Those Of You Who Suffer ..."

Are you struggling from pain, one of the fallen.
A warrior to the world, a defeated body full of pain on the inside.
A disruption in life, making you feel weak and vulnerable.
Treatment, a life extension, making you disappear for the world outside.

Medication given, not making it any better, the end is still near.
Another helpless soul has fallen into the depths of this endless agony.
Family is lost, not able to help, only to see their beloved ones wither away.
A lot of false hope floating through life, a scenery of inhumanity.

For those of you who suffer, we salute you.
For those of you who suffer, we respect you.
For those of you who suffer, we honor you.
For those of you who die, we hope you have peace at last.

When the day arrives for you to go, a moment of tranquility passes by.
All seems well in these moments before the storm comes, but then takes it hard and graceless.
Family and friends come to pay their last respects, wishing you rest, strength and love.
There you go, finally rest in prospect, a burst of pain, then forever silence and darkness.

No more pain
No more fight
No more restrain
Only rest at your last flight!

"...And Fly Away To Rest In Peace Forever"
For those of you who suffer ..
Made an underlying message, please give me some comments if it works, or works better with something else, please tell me.

For a more visual view look here, the DD-award-winning template and the visual poetry deviation:

Personally I think this is my best piece ever. It makes me cry, it makes me think, it helps me get rid of some nasty (troubling) thoughts. But it sure makes me remember the fallen ones. Hope you like it.

I started writing this a while ago, when a cousin of my dad died, he was 38 years old, he had a cancer-type only 3 other people in the world had, so the doctors didn't know enough about it, he suffered alot of pain, but still seemed to be worried about his loved ones. The last day he stood fierce and prowd beside his invalid car, a woman stopped and asked him: "do you know where the young man lives, that is in need of sedation" he answered: "Yeah, that is me".

That was his moment of silence, his moment of peace, before the storm came and dead took him away the day after.

He lived his life as he wanted it, eventually he had peace with his condition, but not with the pain and suffering it had taken on his parents, especially his father, who has longcancer. His father lost his last brother, survived one of his sons, had surgery himself multiple times, his wife went to hospital several times and still they all stand proud and fierce as a family.
