Once and The Frames [Jul. 29th, 2006|05:49 pm]
[Tags|, , ]
[Current Location |Lewisville, NC, USA]
[mood |pleasedpleased]
[music |The Frames - Santa Maria]

So, apparently I lied in that last post. Or maybe not since I haven't posted any graphics of any kind for more than a year. Strangely enough, I still get comments here from people taking icons, and that makes me smile. I just don't take this all that seriously anymore, but knowing that people enjoy what I do makes me happy.

In any case, it seems that the way to get me to make icons again is to post some lovely photos from David Cleary. These icons are all from his photos and include stills from the new independent film "Once" by John Carney and assorted photos of The Frames from over the years. Enjoy!

Batman Begins Icons [Jun. 23rd, 2005|10:07 pm]
[mood |tiredtired]

This will be the last post with icons in this journal. The next post will just point to my site, where I will continue posting graphics, and my blog, where I will be announcing those updates. As noted before, my blog has a syndicated feed at gnomeblog, should any of you wish to follow me there. :-)

I've made all posts in this journal public and removed everyone from my friends list to facilitate the move.

And now, I give you 15 icons and a wallpaper from Batman Begins.

We all fear what we don't understandCollapse )

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768
1280 x 960 + 1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

A Load of Icons and an Announcement [Jun. 14th, 2005|10:24 pm]
[mood |tiredtired]
[music |Enemy at the Gates OST]

You won't know what hit your screen when I get done tonight. I have icons for Kingdom of Heaven, The Lion in Winter (the original one), The Hours, and Mozilla Firefox. Underneath this cut, there are 82 icons awaiting you. But, first, an important announcement:

The days of this journal are limited. I don't plan to delete it, however, I don't intend to update it either. Never fear! There will still be icons, wallpapers, journal headers, tutorials--all the stuff you've come to expect from me. Actually, there will be more than just that. I've opened my design blog up and am using it as a general blog, where I'll still have a good emphasis on graphics and web-design. The blog has been moved to here, and I encourage you to check it out "in person" at least once because... um, it has pretty pictures and I spent lots of time designing the templates. If you don't like simply handing its RSS feed to your news aggregator of choice, trygve has created your solution: gnomeblog. It's currently showing the wrong feed, but LJ is fixing that as I type, so don't worry.

Now, for the stuff you actually care about:

It's 1183 and we're all barbarians!Collapse )

Behold! I exist! And I come with icons. More to the point, I have 15 icons from The Chronicles of Narnia, and I've an assortment of other icons including bits of Blackadder, The Frames, PotO, and more.

Whatever happens, never forget to wipe your sword.Collapse )

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]
[music |The Last Laugh of the Laughter -- Travis]

Hello everyone. I was going through some of my old photographs over the weekend and decided to make a few wallpapers. They're nothing fancy, mainly because I wanted to let the photos speak for themselves. All photographs are mine, which means that I hold full copyright of these. In other words, please, please, please don't make me come persecute you. :s

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768
1280 x 960 + 1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768
1280 x 960 + 1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768
1280 x 960 + 1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768
1280 x 960 + 1280 x 1024
1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

Wallpapers are for personal use. If there's anything else you're dying to do with them, please ask me first. Thanks and enjoy! :D

{whisperback} icons [Mar. 12th, 2005|08:23 pm]
These icons are set around {whisperback}, a marvelous example of original fiction by bandonbanshee and applegnat. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Check out the website, request access to the community, enjoy the icons.

Dedicated to Robin and JacksCollapse )

Frames Wallpaper [Feb. 9th, 2005|10:20 pm]
[mood |coldWhy Does It Always SNOW on me?]
[music |Why Does It Always Rain On Me? -- Travis]

In honor of the release of Burn the Maps from The Frames, I have made a wallpaper using one of their older songs, Fitzcarraldo. There are streaming tracks from some of the older albums on the band's website, and iTunes offers both Burn the Maps and Set List for download. I recommend both highly.

800 x 600 + 1024 x 768 + 1280 x 960
1280 x 1024 + 1600 x 1200 + 1920 x 1200

Also, as requested by eyra, I wrote up a guide to screencapping. And, in that same vein, I have about 5200 Phantom of the Opera caps over here.

Looking for some input [Feb. 2nd, 2005|02:24 pm]
[mood |coldcold]
[music |The Gulf War Song -- Moxy Früvous]

I'm curious to know what kind of icons you all would like to see. I have a pretty large DVD collection, and I don't mind going out to look for caps of subjects that I like. But we both benefit if the subject I'm iconing (iconifying?) is one that you'd like to see. So comment with ideas of icon topics. Think there needs to be more Princess Bride? Rufus? Casablanca? Bush-bashing? Something completely different? Tell me. I don't guarantee that I'll make icons on the subject you suggest, but I'm certainly open to suggestions.

Also, I need ideas for subjects to post on in my design blog; so if there's something that you're curious about, a technique or what not, comment here and I'll see what I can do.

By the way, the friends list has been updated (and mutualized, heh), and this post is friends-only as something of a reward to those of you who watch this place.
