For those of you who are Disney fans but prefer an art deco look to that of art nouveau, Mike Kungl's work might be something you'd like. His paintings are fantastic: crisp lines and a stylish feel that still manage to maintain that classic "Disney" air. You can see his portfolio at MKungl Studios.

I've turned four of Kungl's Disney pieces into screensavers for your Kindle. Each screensaver file is grayscale and 600x800 in size -- click on the preview images for the full-sized pictures.

Two more images: Jessica Rabbit and Tinker Bell.Collapse )


If you need help adding (or removing) custom screensavers from your Kindle, this guide tells you everything you need to know.

Cleaning up and formatting these pictures took longer than you might think, so I ask that you please don't alter or redistribute them. Thank you!

Do you like Disney? How about art nouveau? If you own an Amazon Kindle and you're looking to add to your custom screensavers, the following images might be right up your alley!

In the spring of 2008, Disney unveiled the "Nouveau Collection," elegant designs inspired by classic art nouveau paintings. Available on journals, trinket boxes, faux stained glass suncatchers, and apparel, this re-imagining of some of Disney's most popular princesses was a welcome change from the typically youth-oriented items sold at the Disney Store... but the series vanished almost as quickly as it appeared.

However, with help from bloss_japanime, who posted high-res pictures of the journal covers, I've put together this delightful collection for use with your Kindle! Each screensaver file is grayscale and 600x800 in size -- click on the preview images for the full-sized pictures.

''Mucha'' more where that came from: three more images!Collapse )

I was absolutely enchanted by Disney/Pixar's newest film, WALL•E, and this led to making desktop icons... twenty of them! WALL•E, EVE, M-O, and the movie's other 'bots are all here, ready to bump, roll, and zoom their way across your computer screen.

Here's a preview:



Click on this slightly scaled-down image to see the OS X icons displayed at 48x48 each.


I'm pretty new to desktop icon-making, so these aren't the most polished icons in the world (for that, check out "WALL-E EVE" by Maximilian Larsson, a beautiful OS X icon set devoted entirely to EVE that can be found here), but I thought someone might enjoy them, regardless. :) These icons were originally created on a MacBook; however, I converted them to .ICO format for Windows users, and I'd love to know if they work properly on a Windows machine (or if the OS X icons work on someone else's Mac, for that matter). Oh, and if you're looking for some desktop wallpaper to go with your new icons, definitely take a look at this post by monkeycompass that includes a beautiful image of WALL•E for both single and dual screens. It's perfect!

Without further ado... download the icons!Collapse )

Making these images into icons took more than a few minutes, so, if you decide to download them, please take the twenty seconds to comment and let me know! I'd really appreciate it. =) Besides, people who download without commenting make WALL•E sad, and you wouldn't want to make WALL•E sad, would you?

ETA: 274 OS X icon packages and 214 Windows icon packages downloaded, and only a fraction of those users commented... that's a lot of people who make WALL•E sad. :(

I don't know about you, but I've always had a soft spot for "Flipper," even though the movies and the TV show romanticized dolphins to an unhealthy degree and skewed the public's perception of "the king of the sea"--well, forever, probably! I deal with the fall-out from "Flipper" on an almost daily basis in my job: "What do you mean, there are more dolphin bites on a yearly basis than shark bites? I thought dolphins were friendly!" Facepalm.

Anyway! Despite the unnecessary anthropomorphizing of the title character, I love "Flipper," and I've hunted all over the internet in search of one image: the odd, almost creepy-looking caricature of Flipper that runs beneath the TV show's end credits. When I wasn't able to find it, I took matters into my own hands and put together a "cleaned up" (that is, no words) version of the credits picture that I now want to share with you guys.

I figured it'd make great desktop wallpaper, so I offer it to you in two flavors -- Windows and "widescreen" Mac -- and three sizes:

Windows



[1024x768]
[800x600]
[640x480]



Mac



[1152x768]
[896x600]
[720x480]


If you decide to use this wallpaper, please comment -- it's not much, but cobbling together different screengrabs to eliminate the lettering was more difficult than I thought it would be (and I'm still not totally happy with it), and it's always nice to know that hard work is appreciated. :)

Whew! Hello, 2008!

I haven't had as much time as I'd like this past year to devote to graphics and mixes, but I did manage to finally finish my Little Mermaid mood theme! It took foreeeevvverr, but I'm pretty pleased with the final product, and I hope you will be, too.

This mood theme contains one hundred thirty-two images of mermaid-y goodness -- no doubles! -- and each image is 100x50 in size.

Full preview here; download the entire theme (including the teaser image, readme file, and adminconsolecodes.txt) here.


If you need instructions on how to install your new mood theme, check out this very helpful guide by crackified.

Please don't add text or alter these in any other way. Thanks, and Happy New Year! :D

...Just busy! Last month, I started a job as a marine conservation education instructor, and I don't have the time that I once did to make mixes and userpics. I wanted to post something, though, so here are twenty surfing-related icons to help usher in summer!

''You're sayin' the FBI's gonna pay me to learn to surf?''Collapse )

The cute (almost) monochromatic illustrations and accompanying definitions are from Andrea McCloud's The Girl's Guide to Surfing, a fun little book that I picked up a few years ago; the "Surfing sucks. Don't try it" image is a snarky, tongue-in-cheek T-shirt by Poorboy that my husband owns. You wouldn't believe the number of people who don't "get it" when he wears that shirt -- people ask, "So, I guess you don't like surfing, huh?" Facepalm.

I'd originally planned to do a good-sized series of the Girl's Guide... illustrations/definitions, but life's been getting in the way, so, for now, there are only four. Still, I hope you like 'em!

Please don't add text or alter these in any other way. Thanks!

So, I'm really easily amused and I love Liam Sullivan's "Kelly" character. If you, too, are easily amused by odd things and you haven't seen "Shoes" yet, you're totally missing out. Caution: it's wildly inappropriate, so don't watch it when Grandma's around.

Speaking of being inappropriate, some of the "Shoes" icons under the cut contain profanity and/or bad wigs. You've been warned.

Inside In the Realm of the Never Fairies: The Secret World of Pixie Hollow, readers are introduced to many aspects of fairy life, including "Leaf Lettering," the formal written alphabet of the fairies.

From the book:
The earliest written language known to the Never fairies is called Leaf Lettering. Each letter in this alphabet is composed of a symbol resembling a different kind of leaf. The Leaf alphabet has only 25 letters -- there is no symbol for the letter we know as "x."

Never fairies are the only creatures who can read Leaf Lettering. In recent times, most fairies have abandoned it in favor of a more common alphabet that can be read by all literate citizens of Never Land, from mermaids to Peter Pan. But when a fairy needs to write a secret message that only other Never fairies may read, she will use the ancient Leaf alphabet. Because drawing each leaf symbol can be time-consuming, such correspondence is usually very short.
With the magic of technology, however, you can write as much as you want using Leaf Lettering without spending all day doing so (or mashing up blackberries for ink!). Lacking a font program, I instead made a set of Photoshop brushes from the Leaf alphabet shown in the book to "write" with. (Take a look: if you glance back at my first set of "Disney Fairies" userpics, every "profile" illustration actually features the first Leaf Letter of each fairy's name in one of the upper corners.) Each symbol is labeled with our equivalent letter, and, remember, there's no "x," so there are only twenty-five brushes!

If you haven't tried Lush, you're missing out on some wonderful handmade cosmetics! Lush's products are a bit on the pricy side, at least here in the States, but I consider the cost to be a decent value because their cosmetics are all-natural, of a good quality, and many of them last a long time if you use them correctly.

My favorite scent is jasmine, so I'm in love with Flying Fox and similarly-scented items, but I like their coconut/vetiver goodies as well, and, as an ocean lover, I'm up for anything with seaweed in it like Big Blue. :D Since I'm not a huge fan of patchouli, I don't really care for Karma, but it is Lush's signature scent, so I thought it deserved an icon whether I personally like it or not. =) Each group of products has its own userpic (actually, in the interest of being fair to the boys, the jasmine/honey scent set has two versions), and there's an animated "Lush is love" one in there, too.
