Creatively active. Used to do plenty of caption pictures and animated GIFs. Tried to get into music creation, but that's mostly on hiatus. Some focus on video and picture editing, writing (puns, jokes, inspirational essays, song lyrics) and drawing, lately also more gaming-related entertainment, and trying to put the best of me into the creative work I can do with my limited means and skillset. The path I am taking is part of my artistic expression. Life is art.
I love playing with words and giving depth and meaning to things. My alias befits this, being full of potential. It is not only a combination pun of "owl" and "dolphin", but it also contains "do", "ow", "LP", "pH", "phi", "hi" and "in", so in Dowlphin there is action, pain, long play, chemical duality and balance, solution, water, the golden ratio, casual greetings, popularity and being embraced by and contained in something.
I'd be much more creatively active if my life wasn't missing some essential magical ingredients. (I am dealing with long-time depression/burnout. I come alive when things or people I interact with fill me with hope and when my creative drive doesn't bump into walls.)
Most of my caption pictures and animated GIFs (older stuff) can be found on my webspace: images.dowlphin.de
Please ask me first if you want to use my art somewhere. (Unless it's a trivial case. Just crediting / source linking is fine for those.)If you like my art, you can make me very happy by adding me to your deviantWATCH. Same goes for my YouTube channel and other web presences. Audience gives me the motivation to continue. Thanks!
You might even like to follow my commenting activity and such. Boring comments are a rarity with me. ... Anything else would not be pieous.
My favorite letter is p. "Why" you don't ask? ... Well, fun with a p is pun. And then there's pony, Pink(ie Pie), party, prank, parody, pretty, play, passion, peace, prosperity, power, portal, paint etc.. Enough said.
Thus my favorite colors are pink and yellow, because both begin with a p.
One of my favorite birds is the pewit. (You see why?)
My favorite word is "flummoxed". (With eponymous on second place ... for obvious reasons: my eponymous affinity.)

Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
I more favor music than musicians, because my taste is very broad-spectrum, but can be picky ... (Chris Hülsbeck influenced me a lot early-on though)
Rarely ever read books. Long ago lots of Battletech, much later some Discworld, more recently The Autobiography of Malcolm X
Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams
The Stanley Parable, The Witcher 1+3, Fighting Is Magic (especially playing Pinkie Pie ^^), Portal, probably some older ones I don't remember. (E.g. Full Throttle and Sam&Max Hit the Road are great.)
Favourite Gaming Platform
This side of the universe (the only one without an alternative) ... I think that made no sense, but never mind.
