  • Mood:

I may be late, but I come bearing a challenge

Challenge 58!

  • Link to general rules.
  • You may enter up to five (5) icons.
  • There are five stock images provided; please use at least one of the images in one icon to be entered, then you may use any image(s) you like as long as it fits the theme.
  • Submit your icons, along with the URL, in one comment to this post. The comments will be screened.
  • All entries must be kept anonymous until the challenge is over.


With Labor Day coming up this weekend here in the U.S, I first thought about making the theme "Labor Day," but I realized the holiday may be slightly difficult to convey in an icon. After dropping the word "day" in my search for images, I discovered this week's theme: Labor, or even better, work. Your icons may show different types of work (PG-rated, please) that anyone can do, paid or unpaid--it doesn't necessarily have to be employment. In the images provided, the examples are an au pair (nanny), house or office cleaning supplies, a fashion designer, a farm tractor during harvest, and a someone painting a room. Only one out of up to five icons entered needs to use one of the images provided; you may then choose your own images as long as it shows some kind of work. Jobs, careers, construction, housework, executives, gardening, parenting, race-car driving, cooking, cleaning, shepherding, to name just a few--as long as it's clear that the subject is in fact work or working. If you have any questions about the theme, leave a comment and I'll answer ASAP.

Good luck, and I look forward to seeing lots of icons! :D
