I have discovered the wonders of custom desktop icons for the Mac. Pixeljerk makes some of my favorites, like the xButtons series and the little Handspring icon. I’ve been debating whether to use his Aqua-fied Darth Maul as my Word icon – but then I fell in love with these little guys from DV Graphics, and I just had to have the Bic pen man for my Word icon. When I was growing up, we had more Bic Stics than we knew what to do with, and I learned to write with those things. I’ve Aqua-fied my Mozilla, ICQ, and Dreamweaver MX icons as well. My desktop is a pretty place to be.
Mr. Pixeljerk also has a tutorial on making Aqua icons. You can be I’m going to be playing with this soon.
