... why the fuck making icons is so addicting?

I mean, hell, I've used the same icon for the last... 2 years plus? My happy dancing boys... I think paddies made it originally, but I might be wrong. For some reason, I can never keep that in my head, although I've been told like 3 times at least.

And then I discovered the GIMP. And got addicted fast. It works pretty damn good, and best of all, it's FREE. Of course, I'm still learning, so I use MS Digital Image 9 to lighten & sharpen pics still...

Now I feel that I have to have the right icon for every post, I feel kind of... off... if I use someone else's. And it takes me forever to reply to stuff, as I'm looking for the right pic/editing it/choosing text and a border...


Is there some kind of 12 step program for this?

Icon making is addicting like WHOA. Graphics programs should come with a disclaimer or warning. Glad to see you're joining the club! And you should post some of what you make.
