NOTE (October 2010): Yo! This is a severely outdated profile. The creators aren't into icon-making anymore, but we're keeping the comm for memories' sake, and in case we want to dump any graphics here. Thanks!

Hey there! Welcome to the shared graphics journal of Mel, Kazie, and Tir. We post icons, friends only banners, icon bases and more. Enjoy your stay!

Why Iconara? Kaz says it's icon + carbonara. Mel thinks it sounds like fashionista. Tir wonders if it means anything at all.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment on our FAQ and Affiliates post.

1. Please comment if you're taking any icons/graphics/etc. Please state which ones, too. Not only is it polite, but it lets us know which styles are good and which aren't, thus helping us improve our work. They're multivitamins to our muses. ♥
2. Please credit us when using any of our work, whether it's graphics or resources. You may credit Iconara or the individual maker who made whatever you're taking.
• For a guide on how to give credit on Livejournal, please click here.
• If you will be using any graphics outside of Livejournal, please provide a clear link back to Iconara. The URL is "http://iconara.livejournal.com/"
We are not claiming that certain resources like screencaptures and/or scans are our work. We only ask for credit for the time and effort it took us to screencap/scan them.
3. In line with the second rule, do not claim any of our work as your own.
4. Please do not hotlink or direct link. Save anything you'll be using to your own server, such as Photobucket, Tinypic, or ImageShack. It helps prevent our bandwidth from getting overloaded.
5. Please do not alter or edit any of our work. Although some of our icons are textless, they are not bases.
6. Be nice and have fun!

Hi! I'm Mel.

I first got into graphics thing when I was about 10 years old. My first real programs were MSPaint and Jasc Paintshop Pro 7. I got back into icon making in 2007.

My icons are mostly of anime, manga, and video games, but I also like to dabble in other subjects. I also try things like colorbars and journal headers. I love to experiment.

As of December 2008, I no longer regularly make graphics. Due to real life obligations and time constraints, I no longer take requests or trades. I still have a casual interest in making an icon here or there; keep an eye out. :)

Hola! I'm Kazie. ♥ I'm actually more of a writer than a graphics person, and I only got into icon making because of my RL brother, Tir. But we all start somewhere, right? So please don't be so hard on me. *puppy eyes*

So, my icons. I do anime and video games, and very crappy manga ones when the need arises. Crappy because I don't know how to color. Woe. I rarely use brushes but I abuse textures. Such shiny things~! Ahaha.

If by some miracle you feel like requesting, haha, go right ahead. I'm at my final semester in college, though, so I might be pretty slow at getting back at you. That and I'm a noob. Still, I think it would be fun, and a learning experience at the same time.

Okay, now a little about me. I'm random. And crazy. My current fandoms are Card Captor Sakura and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, and a multi-fandom roleplaying game here in LJ called Econtra. I'm such a dork. I'm the type of fangirl who obsesses and reobsesses over fandoms, though, so expect to see icons from many of my old favorites. Oh~ and I love making friends! *hinthint*
