1st post in a long time. I guess its because we're all busy with work at the end of the term. I actually tend to get more creative and motivated to do non-work things when i'm under pressure. Plus its a great way to relax without completely veg-ing out. So here you go, these are some crappy animated icons, a firefly icon and a couple of random icons.
I hope you like the animated ones, they're not fantastic because I was just playing around with Imageready really...but I really like the base images, the artist whom is credited below. The problem with animated icons I find is that you can make the animation seamless really easily, but the file gets really big until you end up with like a 18-frame 60K icon, which isn't really feasible for LJ.
I had another icon I made using art by Sue Anna Joe who is an incredible experimental photographer/artist who lives in Malaysia. However, I don't have permission to use the stuff, so I'm not going to post the icon. I do urge you to check out her deviantart account, its the kinda stuff that i'd want on my wall if I someday get my own house, its that good.
Just a couple more credit-y things, really to remind myself to put
on the Resources and Credits page...

(The chinese character on Icons #5 and #6 say "Mei" which means "Pretty" in Mandarin Chinese if I remember correctly)
