Anyway... Happy day-after-Easter! This is my (strange) attempt to make an Easter icon. I'm not sure if it will work... I realize it's kind of a stretch. Some of my icons are a bit strange these days.

(edit after editing into an icon)

ha! i'm not sure this looks anything like easter. Even though it's a real easter egg.

(What strange things that I play with when on an all-afternoon conference call. Thank goodness for the mute button.)

Could you use a paperclip, or something, to prevent the egg from rolling around, so that your finger won't be in the picture? That might work a touch better. And, is duke holding a basket in his right hand? If so, having that a bit more in-frame might help a bit.

Well right now it's just a duke image i found on the net, and me holding an egg in front of my laptop screen. Clearly a sign that i'm feeling too lazy to photoshop, or (I'll defend) in the mood to try something completely different.

He's holding a suitcase actually, apparently he's traveling to the city behind him....

I can understand too lazy to photoshop.

Lay the laptop screen flat?

Change the resolution so that Duke is a bit bigger relative to the egg?

Or, just live with it, and I'll stop distracting myself with ideas. ;)

I only knew it was an egg cuz you told me. Looked like a huge milky-pink opal. Maybe you could find an icon that looks like a more traditional egg? Or would that be totally unlike what you want?

Yeah. To me it looks like a planet or a flower.

This was really just one of those failed inspirations that happen now and then. (: I was eating an easter egg for lunch and thought, "I don't have an easter icon. I should take a picture of this egg. Oooh, if I put a picture of Duke on my screen behind the egg, it will make a duke-y easter-y sort of icon...!!"

I will probably just trash it, or maybe keep it as an amusing oddity. Easter is over anyway, after all.

Your other icons

You have a bunch of "Duke holding something on a tray." I'm surprised you didn't use that to make an easter-duke.

Kind of something like this:



I'm real bad at this, but ... that's the general idea.
