"Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with books on algebra, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the creative bug is just a wee voice telling you, "I'd like my crayons back, please."
-Hugh MacLeod, How to be Creative
Welcome to crayonplease, the creative journal of _atmospheric. Usually I make icons, but I also make wallpapers, headers, and other graphics. I write fanfic as well, and have recently begun making fanvids. Please visit karasfighterjet for older entries. This community is closed to members, but please feel free to click the "monitor community" button, as that will add new entries to your friends list.
The fandoms I use for art/fanfic/fanvids usually depend on what I'm currently watching. However, I use:
+ Alias + Battlestar Galactica + Dark Angel + Doctor Who + Farscape + Firefly/Serenity + Lost + Prison Break + Stargate Atlantis + Stargate SG-1
Sometimes I'll also make icons of actors, music artists or stock images. Like I said, it all depends on the current mood.
I take requests as they come- if you want a specific cap, picture, et cetera iconned, I'd be more than happy to do it for you. All I ask is that you provide a picture. :)
I'm more than happy for my work to be used, but if you do, please credit it. All you have to do to credit an icon is type (by crayonplease) or (by _atmospheric) in the keywords box when you upload it. Also, nominations are more than welcome. However, please don't claim icons as your own, hotlink them, etc. No credit is needed for wallpapers, fanfic, or fanvids unless you're re-posting them somewhere. Re-posting or linking is fine as long as you let me know in a comment where it's being posted.
I've participated in icontests in the past, but none especially recently. Most banners are to either my old icon journal, karasfighterjet, or my old personal journal, jesus_freak1234. You can find them here.
