I've been absolutely rubbish the last few months at updating this community and would like to rectify that. I want to start making icons and posting again and for that, I think I might need your help.


I thought I'd give anyone who'd like to the opportunity to make requests, give me some ideas, make some suggestions, etc. Is there anything you'd like to see more of in general (i.e. more stock icons) or maybe more of something I've done before (see tags).

I was also wondering if any of you had any links/pics/screencaps/suggestions of stuff for me to icon? Please feel free to spam me here with some pics/thoughts if you have them. If you do leave any pics, can you also just let me know who/where I should credit (if applicable) in my resources if I do actually end up using them?


Thanks all for sticking with this community - I hope to do better ♥

Yay! More Muppet icons!

{dances about a bit}

Well, you know what I want, don't you...? Or is it too much to ask? But I just don't think the world has enough Rupert icons! Maybe you can help this sad state of affairs...

I knew I'd get one comment (and maybe only one!) and that it'd be from you asking for this =)

I'd do what I can lovely ♥

Sorrr-reee... I'm so predictable!

Look, the thought of new icons from you makes me bounce and wriggle around in glee, and you know I'm gonna love them no matter what the subject matter. So please don't mind me and my little obsessions. Or indeed my tall ones. :-)

I was wondering if you were feeling in the mood to do a group of icons on '5th season Merlin' (the character I mean) or 'the noble nose of Arthur' - or 'the British summer' or 'the Union Jack' (unless you're sick to death of the jubilee celebrations).

Oh, and I never seem to have the right icon available when I want to do a 'thoughtful' post. Maybe a few stock icons around the notion of 'thoughtful' or 'contemplative'...?

No need to apologise!

Merlin ones are, to be honest, unlikely. I do like all your other suggestions though, and I'm certainly more into doing stock ones now anyway. Union Jack stuff I'd love to do! If you come across any particular caps or pics that inspire you, send them my way =)

I love all your icons, but I'm veering more towards generic ones these days

That's exactly how I'm feeling, so I'm glad there's at least one of you who won't be disappointed!

I need to focus on something other than PL - and on something that makes me happy - and making icons always did so I'd really like to get back into it.

Thanks lovely ♥

Yay! Craft icons (yarn, needles, fabric, that kind of thing) and dragons are always on my list. :)

Anything you make is fantastic, so. I totally agree with the above comments, more stock and Rupert icons would be awesome.

Hello, I don't think you know me, but I love your stock and text icons, and seeing more of them would make me smile. I would love it if you made some spring/summer icons, and I especially like "subject" text icons (e.g., I use your "Ranty Rant" icon probably more often than I should ^_^).

OK, here we go...

I love these, and if I could justify spending £75 on a cushion I would totally have one: http://www.amara.co.uk/products/cream-tattoo-union-jack-heart-cushion


And this is cute: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25107002@N07/3778089242/

This is awesome, but the site doesn't seem to exist any more:


Or this: http://www.emmabridgewater.co.uk/union-jack/union-jack-tin-tray/invt/unja460/


And then there's these bags: http://www.mimosastyle.co.uk/p69115/Union-Jack-Raffia-Straw-Handbag/c0-9571-13822


I mostly seem to be coming up with commercial products! Not sure that that's what's required. But I do love a more organic feel to it than the 'straight' flag. I particularly like the sort of watercolour effects of some. Perhaps that gives you an idea or two...?

Or maybe not! :-D

Probably not going to be doing any Merlin ones, to be honest - though there's certainly enough of them in my tags from previous posts!

Thanks for sticking around lovely ♥

I love your work, so I'm sure I'll find several gems in whatever you come up with... If you're up for it, though, I'd like some generic quotes; stuff like:
"This too shall pass"
"What? I'm the life of this office."
"I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy"
"I just have so many feelings"
"Regret nothing"

So basically, random, generic stuff.

Thank you <3
