Okay, here's the deal. Where I'm from it's tradition to own one (or more) Advent Calendar. It (often literally) sweetens your time from December 1st to Christmas Day. Each day you open a door and find something behind hit, mostly chocolate. So, I tried to do that with icons instead. One day, one new Christmassy icons. If you'd like, have a look at the Christmas tag to see entries from previous years.

Surprise, surprise!
This community is indeed not dead. On the other hand, I hope anyone has actually stuck around to see this. Hope you'll all have a wonderful Christmas time. :)

As you might have seen from the previous pimp post, I decided to participate in round 8 of the ic0nfest to get back into icon making. Here's a round-up post of the (sadly only few) icons I created.

I was hit was some kind of inspiration to make icons. You'll have to be the judge if they'Re any good. So, just in time for the holidays, I've got some icons of Christmas baubles. Hope you like them. :)

I can't quite believe it's this time of the year again. Time moves so fast, too fast.

My original plan was to make an icon post before this one, to get the hang of things again and all. That, obviously, didn't happen. So, here I am with the Christmas calendar again. Same as usual, I'll post an icon every day till it's Christmas Day.

I hope you'll like them and bear with me after my absence. :)

Hi everyone who still lurks.

I just wanted to let everyone know that this journal is still alive. What is lacking, however, is - simply put - inspiration. Or maybe I just forgot how to be PS-creative since I last made icons before my hiatus. Still, I'm not giving up and I hope you won't either. Being creative and artistic is still an important part of my life, one that won't go away anytime soon. So, I hope sooner than later there will be an art update here.

Until then, take care.

This is kind of an update, though not one with art. I just wanted to let all you lovely watchers know that until January my art updates are going to be rare as I'm currently away from home and DSL internet access. Good side, though, is that I'm in London, actualy LONDON, doing an internship and only have limited internet access. So,

Semi-Hiatus until January 22, 2012

Although I'll try to make some stuff and post it once I'm back. Sorry. :/

I didn't only post that pomo banner for the fifth ic0nfest but also took part in it. So, here's the collection of icons that I made. A diverse mix of fandom and stock. Hope you like. :)
