Happy Birthday Brother by Captain86
Happy Birthday Brother
This is dedicated to a man above men. My dear Brother Jean was the kindest gentlest person I have ever known. A man who would literally give you the shirt off his back. Having him in my life was a privilege and an honor. He's missed. Happy birthday my Brother! January24 2016.
First and foremost, the news of my Son's death in Belgium is totally untrue. Dimi (ddimitri16) is alive and home from a horrifying experience and the hospital. I have to offer my sincerest apologies to all of you who supported me and my Dimi. You're all such great people. 

Essentially, relatives of Dimi tried to separate him from those who truly care for him. Sending false messages and posing as Dimi's friend Preethy, who's also a victim, in order to separate Dimi from everything he loves. Their efforts were dashed when an alert doctor advised the authorities to Dimi's injuries. The relatives involved are in prison for now. 

I know this all seems totally bizarre, and something out of the movie of the week, but I heard my boy's voice only minutes ago. Again, I'm so sorry for what I put all of you fine people through and the message from Dimi's page. 
Dimi needs to heal from his injuries, but he's okay...and now so am I. Take care everyone and thank you!

Born Philadelphia, PA
Specialize in Graphic Illustration & Cartooning

As of this writing, I've been a 'Deviant' for almost six months.
I've toured the site and encountered some incredible pieces of
art, and some equally incredible artist. As I close on the 50 year old mark, I've never really had much use for the computer
outside of my art and finding information. I never had a 'myspace', never got into i.m.'s, or twitter. I have a 'facebook'
account, but it was for displaying my art work, and since discovering dA, I haven't had a need to go back. As far as networking on a site goes, I feel at home here. Some of the art
and their artist have inspired me to draw in ways I haven't felt
inspired since my 20's. To those I consider friends on dA. I'd
like to thank. The rest, I'd like to get to know. That said, I think
its time for me to let you know who I am.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm
considered the last of the so-called "Baby Boomers" having been born in 1964. The 1960's were a rough year for my country, if not for the world, but, for me, its just history. I have
no memory of it out side of the 1969 moon launch. My earliest
memories are of the 70's. The close, the music, and the television, the instrument that first inspired me to art! For some
reason, the old WWII movies my Aunt watched drove me to draw planes, tanks, and ships. After that, it was shows like
Voyage the the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, and my all time favorite Star Trek. Later it was the 'kid' shows I watched
after Catholic school, Johnny Sucko... The Space Giants, Ultra Man, and Captain Scarlet. After TV, this was the biggest influence on my art 'til this day...comic books and comic cartoons. The DC comic Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes was the comic that did it for me. Superman, Batman and the like were cool, but the Legion had it all. Teen aged heroes set in the far pencil was on fire.

To this day, I'm still influenced by comics, and more so the
comic artist that show their works off to the cyber world. All I've
seen are good, many I think are great, and a few have made my mouth drop! Since logging on for the first time, I've drawn
more independent pieces in these few months than I have since in school. That's because of my latest spark of inspiration,
the artist and people here on Deviant Art. I'll continue to strive for the perfection of my work, and lend a hand to those who
my need it. After all, we may have started the art thing for different season... but the art thing is what makes us who we
are. Keep the ink flowing gang!
