Let me present to you — The Best Icons of the Year 2018 🚀 💯 Check out my bio link! 👉
It’s so crazy that it’s already the 3rd year in a row when I’m sharing collections of the best icons every single month. And I’m not planning to stop! As we just wrapped up 2018, I’m excited to present to you – Best icons of the year 2018!
I’ve noticed that a lot of people who made it into the previous collections share this achievement on their websites, blogs, social media (I’m really humbled and happy to see this!). To show my gratitude, this year I’ve made a small badge for you! So if you find your works in this list, you can proudly put this badge on your blog or wherever you like! The design’s based on NASA’s uniform patches (with a little retro touch). Check out my bio link to download it.
How did I organize this collection? It’s all simpler than it seems. As you surely have noticed, I’ve been collecting the best icons of the month for quite a while. Since I’m kind of addicted to Dribbble, spending way too much time there, every now and then I stumble upon a great icon set and immediately put it into that month’s ‘best of’ selection. This way little by little I’ve already built this gigantic warehouse of fantastic icons.
This time I just went through my collection and picked the ones that got the most attention, shares, and likes, and arranged them into one huge list that I'm sharing with you right now — The Best Icons of the Year 2018.
Am I qualified to make a list like this and all the more so — call it the best icons of the year? Probably not. So don’t take it too seriously and consider it my personal best icons of the year 2018. Look at it as a list of amazing icons that I’ve curated throughout recent years.
I’ve been toying with the idea for a bit to do more posters, at least in a limited capacity.
I’ve always loved vintage posters, mid century and 60’s travel posters especially.
However, I have mostly done music events or a one off events here and there. Usually those have been collaborative or very limited, and I want to broaden that a little.
I’m still fleshing out pieces in my head for a weird combo of posters for pop culture and historical events that are illustration heavy, and am messing with those ideas.
In between those ideas I’ve been illustrating a few musical moments to try and keep some kind of semblance of it fresh in my head.
We’ll see how that goes, sometimes it backfires.
This was one I have been working on, it’s still a little #WIP at the moment. Bowie’s birthday and anniversary of his death have just passed, and I had been needing something/someone to keep my busy and loose for other incoming work and ideas. I figured a tribute to the Starman as Ziggy Stardust’s introduction to the world might be fitting as a “musical event.”
Anyway, here it is so far. I will be sure to post if anything is added. I know a few of you have expressed interest in a Bowie poster of some sort, so here’s what I got from that.
Hope everyone is well!
Make it count!
My FAVORITE queen bee, @oprah! said this quote in her podcast, SuperSoul Conversations, when she interviewed Brene Brown (my other favorite queen bee! @brenebrown). These women have a knack for speaking the words that resonate deep within my soul and stick there for awhile. This one, “Am I better than I was yesterday?” really grabbed me in the heartstrings and I wanted to share it here.
This can be interpreted in a number of ways, professionally or career-wise, learning new skills, treating people better, cooking a meal, learning more about yourself, practicing gratitude, praying, drinking more water, exercising more, reading more, helping out your loved ones more… The ways are endless. The question is endless, really, but it holds so much truth.
Asking yourself this question is the key to fulfillment, vulnerability, and ultimately, growth. Step by step, saying yes to improving and saying yes to taking chances, and learning to say no to what does not serve you. You always want to get better. You are always improving. This one simple question helps you not only improve little by little, day by day, strengthening your strengths and growing into yourself, but it helps you raise awareness inside yourself of how you’re doing. It’s mindfulness, in a nutshell. It’s staying present and asking yourself about yourself. And it’s powerful. So try it out. Ask yourself this question every night before you go to sleep, “Am I better than I was yesterday?” It takes one simple question to change your mindset and to change your life.
