About DaPino

I am Pien
DaPino alias,
Piennemans, Pienmanski, Pienious, Pinos
I have done things wrong, even very wrong sometimes.

I have done good things. Successful sometimes.
This less attractive and beautiful experience.
I have lost, I have won and overcome,

I have searched and found.
I was always on the run until I discovered silence.

I experienced unrest
As the rest
I met and learned accept myself
I am happy

Through the love around me:
My friends,
My family.
By giving love:
Daantje to,
My friends,
My family,
And all those who are for me to do,
In my house, my job.

With everything.
Fortunately, I still have a lot to learn:

Still a lot to do,
Many discover,
Still very much “travel”
Still so much to do!

My black lace,
For negativity and greed.

The common thread is infinite.
The big question was: Who am I?
The answer is: I am I

Every day – I live
With trial and error,
But fortunately

    I am Dele Blaize, dblaize alias.
    I do graphics, graffiti and photoshop effects.
    I really like your site and the vectors you have in there, from the whole colour blend to the shapes.
    How long does it take you to produce one illustration on the average.
    Do you use a lightpen? If yes, which type. Any recommendations?
    I use the mouse but it takes me so long to finish a drawing,at the end its not perfect the way i want it. You have other colleagues into illustration too? Their sites?
    You look very pretty too…for a hardworking woman.
    Thanks for the wallpapers.
    Thanks again.

    Hi there!

    I have been trying to send you a message via your contact us form, but it says the Captcha plug in is missing… do you have an email address I can write to you at? I didn’t think you would want me to write the whole email out into your comments box!! :-)

    hello there!
    your work is great!
    I am student of multimedia in Serbia, if you have ever heard about it?!
    anyway, I am really impressed with your application in flash- Catch the rain.It’s really great! In fact, I was researching web and looking for something cute&simple idea for my school work.Could you please help me with some advice, concerning this application? to explain me how did you realize these components, layers, etc. or maybe if you could send me .fla file to have a look on it(don’t worry, I’ll not use it in any commercial, even non-commercial use, it would be just for myself education and researching).Actually, I would like to learn how to realize some simple game in Flash using ActionScript…
    Thank you in advance.
    and one more time, Bravo!
    Tamara :)

  16. Hi!

    It is a pity you do not allow commercial use of your art. I am writing a book. It will be free (CC-BY-SA 3.0). I thought about using graphics from you on my new web design. But my site is all CC-BY-SA, so it will not be possible. :-(

    Anyway, I’d like to give you a suggestion. You could have a relicensing plan. Icons you do not belive will earn you any money could be re-released under CC-BY-SA. Also, you could compromise to re-release it if people are willing to pay. Something like, I buy the graphic and you release it under CC-BY-SA.

    Your work is really great! It could be a valuable asset to society. :-)

    Hi, your food icons are wonderful: We’d like to use two icons from the collection in a gallery in Los Angeles for the menu in their cafeteria. Is that ok?

  18. Peter Patrick says:

    Thanks for reply and your icon.
    We are now using the icon in develop and also labeled your name on it.
    Thanks again.

  19. Daantje says:

    @jorgeamg: Thanks for your comment. You can use the icon.

  20. Daantje says:

    @peter patrick: thx for your comment. You can use the icons at your website without commercial license.

  21. Peter Patrick says:

    Hello there,
    I’d to ask you a define of “Commercial”.
    Here’s what going on:
    I’m building a website with game.
    And some parts of the game used the some icons/pictures of yours.
    Particularly, my site and game are both NOT for require or request the user pay for some features.

    So, I’d like to know if the above thing is “commercial” or “non-commercial”.

    Have a nice day.

    Best Regards,

  22. jorgeamg says:

    Hello from Mexico, I see an icon that I like me very much and it wanted to ask for your authorization to be able to use it I see it in the page of http://www.iconfinder.com
    And it calls “calculator” http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/11000/128/calculator_money_icon

    I was charmed with the coloes and design, thank you very much my mail is pumas.albero@gmail.com

  24. Rashauna says:

    Thanks so much for the free vector beauty girls. Take a look at how you’ve helped my customize my blog character.

    http://www.phomucoco1.blogspot.com I used your girls to make the header character.

  25. Hello Pien,

    I love your work, your feminine touch makes a great difference. We have a free vector site that we’ve launch some months ago and we are inviting contributors that we like their work. We would really love you to send us some of your work to publish on our site. Please check our site out at: http://www.freevectorstock.com/ and let me know your thoughts and feelings about this.
    Also very nice what you wrote below your pic.


  26. Luba says:


    Your work is amazing!

    I sent you an e-mail today and would love to hear from you!

  27. Simlin55 says:

    Hi Pien,

    Even een compliment voor je prachtige creaties. Ik kan het niet laten mooie dingen mee te nemen als ik ze zie, al heb ik er niet altijd direct een project voor. Maar er komt altijd wel een moment dat ik zeg “jà, dat ga ik er mee doen!” Ik weet hoeveel tijd en inspanning je dit kost en ben het helemaal met je eens dat delen met anderen veel leuker is dan het voor je zelf op de computer te bewaren. Ik deel ook met anderen wat ik in mijn vrije tijd graag maak (wel ander soort werk dan wat jij doet, maar het idee erachter blijft hetzelfde). Het creatief bezig zijn geeft ontspanning en als je er dan ook nog ‘ns anderen blij mee kunt maken, dan geeft dat nog meer voldoening.
    Met heel veel dank,
    groetjes uit Italië (ja, geëmigreerd :-) )

  28. kevin says:

  57. skiwi says:

    Hi DaPino,

    I love your designs, so beautiful and detailed. I especially like your floral graphics with the birds and roses…..stunning. Is it alright to use these designs for a website I am trying to create? I have learnt how to make jewellery and want to promote it on the internet but I am not sure if you would mind me using your graphics on a website that sells jewellery?

    Your poem is wonderful about your life and I agree….creativity is very therapeutic. For me making jewellery has been a lifeline through recovery from mental illness.

    Keep on creating your special work :)

    Best wishes from New Zealand
