This is really nice macro shot, I love it! :) I love how the whole photo feels like it's alive, in a biological way of view, I mean the ...

I graduated from AKTO college in Greece at 9 July 2009 and received the diploma of higher education in graphic design by the cooperating university of Middlesex.

After that I continued my studies in graphics design and at 14 July 2011 I received my Bachelor of Arts with Lower Second Class Honours at Graphic Design from Middlesex University of London.

Now I work as a freelancer graphics designer and also I continue the creation of the video game I started in college.

You can contact me by email at

You can visit my site here (Unfortunately is not completed and there is not an English version yet)

Also you can keep tracking of my video game here: .
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: Hecq - Sura

  • Watching: NCIS
  • Playing: TF2
  • Eating: NOTHING! OMG DIET!
  • Drinking: Coffee (one does not simple doesn't drink coffee)
Well to be honest I have never featured anybody in my journal, mostly because I don't really believe that many people read my journals anyway, so this is short of pointless.

However I came across a really interesting competition for :points: today, the deal is simple:
:+devwatch: the host, add the journal entry to your :+fav: and feature the host on your journal.
Fair enough and simple enough, everybody can do that and the host is really having an interesting gallery, so it is not like "littering" around with spam through your journal because you will do anything for a couple of :points:!

So the host is asking you to just copy this on your journal:

:iconfrantices: is giving away 170 points . To get a chance on wining  share her on your profile  ! "
I will use to pick up the three winners!
Everyone else will get a llama :meow:

Now think about it for a moment, the :points: are not big deal, but one way or another are free :points:! The effort you need to have a change to win them is minimal, especially if you are in deviant art for enough time to know how to use some basic functions.
On the other hand the host is gaining popularity, watchers, features in journals and people after people are calling other people for a change to win and in the progress make the host even more popular! Even if half of the people who will get attracted at the host's profile will stay and after the competition, can be a good number, and one way or another the host have a great opportunity to show off her work and attract the visitors to stay watchers, :+fav: her work, buy a print etc!

Now this is a smart way to advertise yourself around deviant art! I couldn't think of that myself and it can be way more attractive than a random banner advertisement!

I will keep that in mind for the future, you know for that unbelievable time which I will have money to buy points and give them away this way =P

By the way I have updated the blog for my video game here… the project is moving slowly but steady!

Be well everybody!

Happy birthday, Nikolas! Well, actually the word "happy" is not really appropriate to the crisis you are witnessing in Greece at the moment. I hope everything will turn out good for you and your country!

BTW, here in Germany there is a very excited discussion whether Greece should stay in the Euro zone or not. What do you think? I heard there ought to be a referendum.
nitro912gr Nov 8, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Well no birthday is happy after you enter adulthood I guess :P
But thanks :) and be well! :D

It turned out that the major parties in parliament will form a unification government, we will accept the economical help program from EU and in 5-10 years we will be up and running if everything turns out well.

I hope that everything will go well, my sister already moved in Belgium and I really don't want to immigrate if Greece leave EU and go bankrupt.
I really love Greece and I feel comfortable even if there are better places to be, and after all I don't really have many options on leaving, I only know to speak and write English and Greek.

As for what Greece should do, is of course to stay in EU even if we go in a controlled bankrupt within Europe.
If we exit EU we are screwed, but EU leaders doesn't help us because of friendship or "let's help the poor brother".
France and German banks are highly exposed to a Greek bankrupt, because they given loans both in Greece as a country and in local Greek companies (because this was the currency unification all about, a a daughter company of BMW in Greece to be able to take a loan from a bank in Germany).
So if the Greece went bankrupt all those banks will get in trouble, even if the current loans turn to drachmas (the pre-euro currency) and lose significant value, or even if they stay a euro value, but the companies will not be able to pay them.

So it seems the banks greediness turned against them.
The problem is that the whole Europe is bank depended, if the banks fail, all fail.

Banking system is screwing the world in the end.

As for the referendum, that was a joke... it is not gonna happen, it was most likely a political dodge from the Prime Minister to make the parties to join in a new co-op government.
To be honest, I don't know how I feel about that, it stressed me at first, but it turns out like the right thing to do so we can have our politician unified.

We will see...

If that's right I never want to become adult! In two weeks it'll be my 16th birthday...

Thanks for writing that, otherwise I wouldn't have really understood what is going on between Europe and Greece. Every day, there are new decisions, new cutbacks and if you don't watch the news regularly, you aren't able anymore to overlook the situation.

I quite understand what you mean. The EU doesn't really want to help Greece bacause of means of solidarity and the promise of the European Idea to help each of its members but so save one's own economical life ... In each talkshow on German TV, politicians who agree with keeping on helping Greece say they want to help the people there ... that makes me angry!

If the banks fail, all fail ... that's sadly true. :( In my philosophy class at school we watched a documentation about lobbyism which concerns exactly the same topic. Once it told that at the moment, people are working for the bank and not the bank for the people. In my opinion we necessarily need to revolutionize our economy system, otherwise one day we will all be destroyed by it.

I have anyhow really wondered why somebody wants to ask people if they would like to kill themselves ... ;-)
