If I had a desktop computer I would have such a good time making icons. I just came across a handful of Methos icons, which reminded me that I’d like to do a set of those sometime. There’s a whole pile of movies we’ve got that I’d like to do icons from. Hellboy. Maybe Dangerous Beauty. Highlander. Riddick. Chicago. Maybe Labyrinth. I could do a whole series of Pulp Film icons–The Shadow, The Phantom, The Rocketeer, even Sky Captain. And despite the fact that there are already a hundred thousand million trillion Doctor Who icons out there, I still want to make some of those, too. And I have all of this great Chance artwork that I want to make both icons and mood icons from.

You know. In my copious free time. But I *love* making icons, even if I’m not nearly the artist a lot of people are, and although it is a computer-based activity, which is not really what I’d like for a hobby, it’s still nifty and I’d like to do it.

Oh well. Someday I’ll have a desktop again.

We’re out of milk and probably other important things I can’t think of right now, but it’s pissing down rain and I’m supposed to be working, neither of which inclines me to go get milk.

The world can never have enough Methos icons. Wonder if it's a writer thing. Cheers and smiles, Jean Marie

... Why only desktop for graphics stuff?

More memory, mostly. Less likelihood of the computer crashing. And it's easier to manipulate with a mouse, which I can attach to the laptop, f course, but it's awkward.

I've actually come to loathe using a mouse for graphics of any kind - the movements are so limited, if you try to do smooth lines your wrist gets hung up somewhere and everything goes all bleck, and the mousepad is too small, and and ... UGH. I so want a tablet. :/
