The not-so-personal journal of an icon maker

Hi, I'm Cyan! This journal is a place for me to share about icon-related stuff, stuff I'm up to, and events.

Current favorite icons:

You can also spot me:
5 fun facts about Cyan:

1. I use GIMP to make my icons. I guess this impresses some people. If I can ever afford Photoshop, I'll let you know.

2. I've been iconning since late '08. Here are some icons from '09 that I'm not completely ashamed of.

3. Unpopular opinion. I like pretty anime girls over pretty anime boys.

4. My first anime series was Fruits Basket. I shipped Yuki/Tohru and wanted Haru all to myself.

5. I'm not this cool in real life.

Random recommendations: anime, Hidamari Sketch // manga, Crescent Moon by Haruko Iida // soundtrack, OST from Ouran High School Host Club // song, Honeybee by Steam Powered Giraffe // font, Two Cents // non-animated movie, Secret of Moonacre // website, ayoungscores.com, your new favorite male character, Nozaki Umetaro // your new favorite female character, Kitashirakawa Tamako // your new favorite OTP, Miniwa Tsumiki & Otonashi Io // go crazy.

Anime I Seriously Need to Rewatch Right Now

It's getting cold outside, and all I want to do is get cozy and rewatch some of my favorite anime. Here are a few shows that I'm especially ready to dive back into.

This comedy centers around the members of a high school music club. K-On! is slow paced, but goofy and heartfelt. Just be sure to watch it with every expectation to be craving cake by the end of the episode.

Finale Rumble

After a lot of thought, I've decided that my life and schedule are too erratic to continue moderating calendarsquares. I'm really sad to give this up, since calendarsquares has been one of my favorite creative outlets over the years. To celebrate the community and its many creative members, I've decided to throw one last Rumble for everyone who's participated over the years. If you'd like to take part and help me close out the community with a bang, please consider signing up for this farewell extravaganza!
