06 Dec A final teaser of things to come.

As the holidays are approaching, I have decided that I am better off spending a few days not working in the year and taking the time to perfect my icons and the details in them. I will be blogging a bit less, and I probably won’t release much, if anything in the rest of 2007. But January 2008 will certainly be the date of the extended Orion iconset, and another set that I am working on in my spare time. I decided to show that off to whet your appetite for the holidays and the new year. Work in progress!


Apart from a good system-replacement set, I will release a set of icons in a theme of my first portfolio website; the ‘forgotten mainframe’; overgrown electronics from damp rainforests on alien worlds. I don’t want to make the same mistake as I did with Orion, so sound off in the comments if there is any motivation for this to be a system set instead of just a small icon set.

    Ooh, I LOVE these. I, at least, would definitely be interested in a system set like this.

    Oh man, those are awesome man. I love the level of detail on the folders. I don’t know how usable they will be in a long term sense, but they are quite unique and definitely eye catching. Its a shame theres no method of theming Leopard, as a full system with this overgrown/forgotten look would look really slick.

    Love this style, particularly the aged look of the folder. I’d love to see the drive take on that same level of deterioration.

    And yes, I’d love to see this as a system set.
