four words and a digit.


Today, I praise the genius of these four talented people. Some have been mentioned before, but all good things deserve repeating.


I am obsessed with her icons. Every post is genius. Seriously, I could stare at them for hours. And we don't even share a lot of the same fandoms, but sometimes I steal the really pretty ones to look at later. Her icons have a lightness and a depth to them that I haven't seen anyone else succeed at replicating. Also, she makes the prettiest B&W icons. Heck, even her animated icons are classy. Seriously.

Main fandoms: BSG, Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, House


I found just found this journal today, but I thought it deserved some iconpraise ;) I love the soft colors, and she has some of the best cropping I've seen.

Main fandoms: Lost, House, Grey's Anatomy, Veronica Mars


She makes the best Jossverse icons. Hands down. Especially Buffy. Her colors are vibrant without being too fake, and she pwns the close-face crop. (You know what I'm talking about.)

Main fandoms: Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Veronica Mars


Another iconist whose journal I only found quite recently, but still adore. I don't really even mind that most of her icons are from OTH, which I totally don't watch. She is one of the only icon makers who manages to use use brushes and textures in a way that doesn't totally overpower the rest of icon. Everything seems to just add to what was already there.

Main fandoms: OTH, Veronica Mars, Grey's Anatomy, The Office

Hopefully, I'll have more later :)
