Kram666.....We Will Miss YouMany of you know that we have lost a precious and talented artist in :iconkram666:.....also known as Mark.
His cheerful comments and and fantastic fractals will be forever remembered by those who came to know him here in the Deviant Art community......and especially in the fractal art community.
Below is just small sampling of the many outstanding, colorful and unique works created by him, as well as photographs of Roxy and Ronny, and a sample of his outstanding work in macro photography..........

Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 14The first issue of this year! This time I want to present some of the coolest fractals from 2011, it was really difficult to pick out some faves of the year, you are too good!!! But first, a short resume of last year's happenings.Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 143 years ago in Personal More Like This
What happened last year?
Pretty lot! There have been fractal circles with tweaking fractals around, both in the group :#fractalcircles: and ponging parameters in :#aposhack: , Light SuicideBySafetyPin introduced us for the Inspiration station, the fractal flash mob, a collective feature of different artists. heavenriver has her UF challenge going on http://heavenriver.deviantart.com/journal/Ultra-Fractal-monthly-Challenges-Redux-Vol-12-277027446 and f--l--A--r--k has his Apo challenge http://fav.me/d4l1fc6 and it would be great if we could keep up supporting them! We were catched by :devlindel
In Memory of Mark (kram666)We are sure many of you in the fractal world, here at dA, know of the terrible loss of one of the most amazing fractal artists kram666. Mark was not only a fantastic fractal artist, but also a great friend to many and always full of the nicest things to say. I know I was always dumbfounded why he would ever fave any of my fractals when they never even came close to the work he did, but he was always full of encouragement and never once let a thank you go by without saying, "You're welcome." I know James and I will also miss the wonderful photos of his dear foxes, as well as his gentle free spirit that made dA a nicer place for so many of us. He will truly be missed by us all.In Memory of Mark (kram666)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every time we fire one up, we will be thinking of you, Mark!

The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I will never be able to explain the how and why I love fractal creating with all my heart.
I just know, that when I "found" it here on Deviant Art. I have never stopped looking and
wanting to create fractals that would make others say "WOW"....or "AWESOME".
But I also discovered, thanks the Lord, that creating a fractal, any fractal from any software
is a group activity that involves the creators of the fractal software, as well as looking
at the awesome work of those who have made fractals before us, and
those who write tutorials and give real time advice in :iconthe-ApoShack:
Without all these things and people working together....fractal art would not be the powerhouse it is today.
I say these words from my heart and soul.
Have you thanked a fractalist today?
Below are images from those who I admire and want to be like....or even better than...but I KNOW
I have a long, long way to go.
Asking a Question...Praying NOT to get BANNEDIf any of you look at the Daily Deviations every day.Asking a Question...Praying NOT to get BANNED10 months ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed that there have been NO fractal images represented
for quite some time.
If you go to the page where it tells you WHO to submit suggestions for
Daily Deviations....they have removed the category.
I inquired about that and was told to submit suggestions to Moonbeam13 :iconmoonbeam13:
because she is Deviant Art Staff.
I have submitted a dozen or so,,,and I realize my taste is different than a broad majority,
but there have been NO fractals....not even some being suggested from other people.
I have inquired again, but received no answer. I have waited....and no answer.
I am really afraid of being BANNED if I ask again....because frankly there have been several people
banned and suspended lately (across several art forms that I follow) and we are NOT allowed to inquire
Why or What for?
I am going to forward this to the Founders of the Other Fractal Groups I know.....to see if they

Have you heard about .....Several weeks ago, in my daily effort to view all the daily submissions from the many Groups and individuals I watch, I started to notice more and more frequently that some of the Fractals I was viewing were being created using this new program. First it was just a few a day, then suddenly I was seeing dozens of Flames being created with JWildFire! Curios about this newcomer to the Fractal Scene I went to the website and discovered that the software is designed to run using Java and will run on multiple Platforms.Have you heard about .....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I with to the developers da page and told him that I had created a folder in Xtreme Fractals for the software! http://xtremefractals.deviantart.com/gallery/34103672 I also grabbed a snippet of information about the software to put on the left info panel of the folder. Since then the developer, thargor6 has joined our Group and he and I have had several discussions about his program! What follows is a result of those discussion. Here's Andreas aka - Thagor6

Last Honor for a recently passed away deviantHello there fello friends, watchers and deviants...Last Honor for a recently passed away deviant2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One week ago was a sad day for the family of :iconkram666: and the deviant community.
He passed away at the age of only 48. Him who was so dedicated to digital art will never leave anyone of us a comment or reply to those given to him. He will never again fill our inboxes with his colorful fractals or cute photos of the foxes.
But even if his body has passed away - he will stay alive within us and within the art in his gallery.
I'm sure that he is somewhere where he can still appreciate our support of his art, so this is my hommage to a wonderful artist AND his family.
With heartfelt condolences,

Very sad news to all of Marks friends. (Kram666)I visited Marks homepage and discovered this message left by his brother.Very sad news to all of Marks friends. (Kram666)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"This is Simon, Mark's brother, with the terribly sad news that Mark passed away last week.
This was a huge shock to us all.
I helped him set up his PC with all his drawing tools so knew how much he adored producing his bespoke digital artwork and how much the Deviant art community meant to him.
On his behalf I'd like to thank you all for the friendship and support you've shown and would ask you to pause for a minute at 14:20 on Monday 1st October. (British Summer Time)
With Kind Regards.
As Mark often quoted.
"I felt the call of the jungle, primal and clean.
I felt my connections to the wild in every cell in my body;
realized that I am among the trees,
