Me, The Graphic Artist

By now, I’m sure that you all are familiar with my er…skills in relation to drawing/graphic design. Do I need to mention the sneaker again?

I didn’t think so.

But the other day I got an email from my friend JM who lives in Australia. She was wondering if i could make some 125×125 images for her to use, as I’d made an icon or two for her to use a couple of years ago when she started using LiveJournal. After the demise of 451 Press (yep. it’s done. Good thing I left while I could actually say good-bye.) she’d gone and set up some sites for herself, and she was wondering if I could help her out with some images.

As you may imagine, I protested that I have quite a lack of skill. She replied that I was still better than she was at this sort of thing. So…I said I’d give it a shot. You know why? ‘Cause I actually *love* making icons. That and flair over on facebook, but that’s beside the point.

I’ve come up with stuff for two sites so far, and I thought I’d post the winners here for you to enjoy.


As I understand it, this is the image that JM will be using for Down Under Views.


I rather proud of this one that I did for Inky Blots. Which is good, as it took for-bloody-ever. Every one of those “ink splotches” on the icon is a separate image, you see.

Well, that’s it so far. I have to go back to banging my head against the next project. I’ll be sure to post the next ones here, too.

Hmmmm. Me, the Graphic Artist. Who knew?

    Your grandmother Catlin attended Otis Art Institute In Los Angeles. She was working towards being a commercial artist. Ninety years ago though marriage tended to trump a woman’s career. I still have her class sketch book.

  5. The Sister Says:

    Me too…her sketch book from her later years.

    Well…I have one of her drawings, Dad and Sister Mine. Do I get part credit?
