quillori: abstract design (stock: book of hours (abstract))
( Jun. 12th, 2010 12:15 pm)
I've been working on the assumption that a satisfactory collection of icons my tempt to me to post, or at least comment, more often. I'm not sure that's true, but it makes an excellent excuse for wasting time collecting them. What I have noticed is that there is a definite aesthetic I'm tending towards: mostly muted colours, illustrations rather than photos (unless the photo is so messed about with or so abstract it might as well not be a photo, or it's not so much a userpic representing me as a placard: this entry/comment is about this fandom/this character), lots of text. I could run down my icons and tell you at once which I'm going to end up changing when I find something more satisfactory, not necessarily because I don't like the icon, but because I don't feel it fits this journal. Of course, if I set up a second journal (hardly likely, given how infrequently I use this one), I've found any number of icons I like that don't fit here, and I might end up with a totally different look. Do other people do this, and if so do they do it by having a consistent theme, or just by a feeling that one icon looks like it fits and another doesn't?

from [personal profile] quinfirefrorefiddle:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

Six icons within )
