My Bio
I'm a 17.5 year old teenager from Israel. My main interests are photography, music, digital art and programming.
In addition to studying in high-school with my friends, I'm a student for BS.c in Computer science at Tel-Aviv university.

I'm a big fan of open-source and for that reason I try to contribute to GIMP (The open source image manipulation program - an excellent alternative for Photoshop). I fixed several bugs, and added some new features/plugins that are now part of the official distribution. Lately, I became an official developer, after getting my commit access to the central code repository.

When I'm not on the computer programming, I'm a camping guide in the youth movement "Bney Hamoshavim" - I'm responsible for building camps and for teaching kids how to work with ropes and other equipment.

Current Residence: Israel
Favourite style of art: Fantasy Digital Painiting/Photography
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: iRiver
Wallpaper of choice: My own photographs =)

Other Interests
Science Fiction, Digital Art, Logics, Computers, Programming...
So, today I broke the 10,000 pageviews barrier, so I would really like to thanks everyone who watches me here in deviantart =) I really enjoy it here, and I have special thanks to the people who took the time to five me feedback on my works. Also thanks to the people who support in me in my different activities - for everything from developing GIMP and in my attempts to support my country (Israel) and make people here see that "We are not the bad guys". Many thanks again. Also, for everyone who follows the Hebrew calender, שנה טובה/"Shana Tova"/Happy new Year! --------- נו, א&#1

Hello! After some work, I'm proud to say that GIMP can now export PDF's using my new cairo-based pdf export plugin! Go check it out - it's in the main source repository in the master branch :D (For those of you who don't know how to compile GIMP, if you are on linux google it since it's easy, and if you are on windows I'll try to post a guide later) Comments and feedback are more than welcome - you have until 2.8 to affect how this plugin will work and which features it will have. Currently, it has:Support for multiple pages using multiple images using File->Create->Multiple-Paged PDF...Support for exporting text as text!!Support for resol

Hello again, So I'm back (Probably then tenth time I say I'm back :P) after a long time of lots of university stuff that took my time. What am I up to? - Translating GIMP to Hebrew - Learning to draw (Hopefully), and doing some inking - Taking a course in computer graphics (the algorithms and programming aspects of computer graphics) on my next university semester I submitted some new works recently, which I'd be really thankful If you check out (especially Carried away with clouds and Sun::Set) After the huge mass of deviations I had to review (1000+), the only way out was to delete all the deviantWATCH messages, and so I visited the g

...jews...Fucking jews!!!...Murders!!!..anti-semitic bugs!!!..zionist pigs!!!..Death to israel!!!..FUCK YOU israel!!!!!!
To have something implies total dominion. Until now, to acquire total dominion of a territory can only be obtained by war. What is obtained violently can be lost violently.
Never ending story, and one hell of a painful one. What is obtained by law has a greater capacity for permanence. Can a world court justice determine the right to own a land? Can a territory be obtained by rational means thanks to intelligence?
Thanks so much for the fave!! :]
No problem! It was a very unique work, I really liked the style of the drawing ;-)
Thanks for the :+fav: :hug:
