Nubile women are a source of jealousy and strife in the tribe.

Salutations, dearest Brethren of the All-Seeing, All-Knowing, Almighty ICONOMICON! With this batch of iconomic goodies, I come bearing news of good tidings! Yours truly, the humble Keeper of the ICONOMICON! is getting married! To the lovely woman who named the ICONOMICON! It is a match made in Heaven!

Why does this concern you, dear Brethren of the ICONOMICON? Previously you all came together to help me in a great time of need, and again, I humble myself before you. I am trying to raise money to help pay for the wedding. Between medical bills and divorce (the irony, I know), our families are unable to give us a hand, so we're paying for most of the wedding on our own.

The membership of the ICONOMICON! is so much bigger now, so if every member donated $3, that would pay for the whole wedding, which I am of course not asking for :D However, if every member donated fifty cents, or half the members donated $1, or a quarter of the members donated $2 (you get the picture) that would more than cover the amount we're coming up short. Like last time, I am not asking for blind handouts!

I will make custom icons or banners for anyone who donates $5 or more. I am a fairly accomplished graphic designer and will also do other custom graphics you may need. Email me and we can work out details. Unlike with my surgery, you don't have to wait until I get back and recuperate – I'll get started on your graphics straight away! Also, if icons aren't your thing, I am also still selling prints of my photography at jackart!

If you can help, that would be amazing. Think of this as the pledge drive for the ICONOMICON! If you love the ICONOMICON! and have benefited from the six years and 17,000 icons available here, if your internet experience has been enhanced by these little 100x100 squares, please donate!

When donating through PayPal, please put your LJ name in the comments. Thank you in advance to anyone who is able to help. I appreciate this more than words or icons can express.

Thank you,
Jack Shoegazer

And last but not least, the latest icon post!


( Although the institution of marriage pre-dates reliable recorded history, many cultures have legends concerning the origins of marriage. The way in which a marriage is conducted and its rules and ramifications has changed over time, as has the institution itself. )
