Hello there! If you’re perusing this post, it’s most likely because you’ve been keeping up with this year’s Year of Icons. I’ve been creating and posting an icon every day for the entirety of 2015. So far, so good.
But, I’m going to take a little break. Not from posting the icons, just from posting them on this blog.
I’m heading to Europe in a couple of days for a vacation, and won’t be bringing my computer with me. Instead, I’m going to try my darndest to create a BUNCH of icons tonight and tomorrow. Instead of posting them to this blog, I’ll be posting them, daily, to my Instagram account. So. Head on over here —> http://instagram.com/sensibleworld.
If you’ve been enjoying the recent superhero series, then you’re in luck! More are on their way. If not, then you’re out of luck. Oh well.
When I return, I’ll make sure to get this site back on track.
I’ve only recently gotten back into reading comics, after a almost two decade hiatus. This is due to a combination of digital comics gaining momentum, the iPad, and Marvel Unlimited. But what truly got me hooked was Matt Fraction and David Aja’s run on the new Hawkeye book. Simply put, it’s amazing. And one of the issues seemed to be written specifically for me. Comics + pictograms = pure gold.
Netflix is bringing Daredevil to the small screen. I’m bringing a Daredevil icon to an even smaller screen. Or an even larger screen. IT DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON YOUR SCREEN SIZE.
Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can.
And so we move on to Marvel icons. What with the big news that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this seemed like an appropriate time to IMMORTALIZE him in icon form. It would be even more amazing if I hadn’t already done so two years ago. But this time he’s in color. And I think I did a better job capturing the web pattern on his mask. So I’ve got that going for me.
