Dock Icons Emoticons Contact List Styles Message Styles Sound Sets AppleScripts Status Icons Service Icons Menu Bar Icons Plugins Miscellaneous All


Submitted By Kathryn (coerul)


Created on a whim. Doodled a bunch of logos with my new tablet, and turned them into service icons.

I know they're sloppy, they're "hand drawn" afterall. This of course makes the smaller icons a bit difficult to see.

For some reason the small Jabber icon looks like a key. xD

I have made a reversion of these icons in black and white only: Handdrawn Reversion

Looks great with:
Notebook Contact List Style
Pushpin Message Style
Hand-drawn Dock Icon
Hand-drawn Status Icons


2-19-07: Added "chalk" and "colored chalk" versions for dark backgrounds. I should be done now! I'm sure the Adium people are getting tired of me resubbing everything to fill requests. xD
2-13-07: Added colorfied version!

Nice idea. :)

Maybe you could have an alternative version with colour?

# by coerul on 01/27/07 at 14:02:24

Do you mean like filled in with color, or just in different colors (like color coordinated, or in ink pen blue or red)?

# by paulwilde on 01/27/07 at 21:11:30

Filled in with colour.

# by paulmrcross on 01/27/07 at 13:08:03

Would be good with the notebook contact list style

# by Dylan1077 on 01/28/07 at 00:46:40

Really creative, I like it.

# by biglittledragoon on 01/28/07 at 11:54:51

I really like a lot the idea! Why not with colors, like aquarelle?
But, first of all, I will love to have the same thing for Status Icons.

# by coerul on 01/28/07 at 12:22:19

How do you suggest the status icons be? I love making sets so, I'm all about making more. xD
Like little scribbles? or..circles? or what?

Of course the status icons would have to be in color unless I figure out a way to signify everything with a simple symbol. x.x

# by biglittledragoon on 01/28/07 at 12:54:12

Sorry, it was so obvious for me that I forgot to tell that it could be based on "Chat Bubbles" in Adium. I'm guilty... :P

# by kangorillas on 01/28/07 at 21:36:19

Nice job! i would love to see these in colour also

# by AzrimEkim on 01/29/07 at 13:54:56

I like it a lot.

# by Rebekia on 01/29/07 at 15:17:10

I love they're hand-drawn and sketches...sketches are most times in black and white..on a whim with a free hand and an open mind. I love the idea of wanting to gain a bit of free hand motion back to a very stiff computer set programming systems that we live in now. I totally know why you got the bug to do this :D

# by coerul on 01/29/07 at 15:24:12

Thank you!

# by enkuturi-akrias on 02/05/07 at 09:14:05

you draw these? very good idea

# by Ali on 02/10/07 at 18:35:18

Why no one has done this before is beyond me. This is a masterpiece.

# by coerul on 02/10/07 at 21:27:39

xD; Thank you!

As I said, it did seem a bit quintessential.

# by Ali on 02/11/07 at 14:15:15


I just realised: you need to make a hand-drawn adiumy dock icon! OMG, START WORK NOW! :D

# by coerul on 02/11/07 at 19:51:15

Actually I do have plans to make one, but I'm not sure if I should doodle a chat bubble or what. I'll probably end up making two. >w>; Since my status icons are chat bubbles.

# by Flea on 02/13/07 at 18:23:02

Oooh! They look so pretty with the notebook contact list that I'm currently using!!
Good Work! =o) I think the coloured ones will be marvelous too!! =o)

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/13/07 at 21:08:53

It looks really cool with the color. Awesome. (Can we expect the same on the status icons?)

# by coerul on 02/13/07 at 21:47:55

Probably not. Those are too small to bother with color on. They would get too crowded-looking. I already dislike how the small versions of these look.

Although it's not a definite no, I'm just saying I probably wouldn't enjoy making them that much since I know they'd look rather indefinite and hard to read properly. I could make a white version for people with dark lists if enough needed it but color is probably a no.

# by Ali on 02/14/07 at 11:51:10

Wow. I thought these wouldn't look that good with colour but you, my friend, have shown me the light. Excellent work!

# by coerul on 02/14/07 at 11:52:48

I didn't think they'd look good with color either! xD I sure showed us.

Thank you

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/14/07 at 19:21:39

Maybe it will be the same if you color the status icons.

# by coerul on 02/14/07 at 19:24:26

But those don't have a specific color to color them D: The typing icon is a scribble after all. And they're all crowded.

*o: Xtra of the moment!*

# by cheezitimposter on 02/14/07 at 22:13:51

this really awesome!!!1 a tablet, huh? Nice!!

# by Ali on 02/15/07 at 12:14:14

Haha, I feel like saying "I totally knew about Hand-drawn before it became mainstream." XD

# by coerul on 02/15/07 at 19:50:12

x3 Well you were the one who first suggested a dock icon. I prefer the dock icon to the other ones myself, since you can see all the "intricate detail" on my scribbles. :B

I'm now thinking about "drawing" the adium duck for a dock icon. But I'm afraid it would be too much. xB

# by michelebugliaro on 02/15/07 at 15:45:52

Well done.

# by Flea on 02/15/07 at 17:37:02

LoL!! So nice the colured ones!!

# by br0seph on 02/17/07 at 18:32:45

is there any way we could get a white version for those of us who like contact lists with dark backgrounds????? :D :D

# by coerul on 02/18/07 at 14:32:42

It should be coming up. I forgot to add a little bit about that to this and the status icons. Just be patient. It's been a busy weekend.

# by metaphysical on 02/18/07 at 21:12:08

Truly exceptional work. I can't wait to have a guiKit to match your hand drawn suite!

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/19/07 at 21:34:29

Some of the "chalk" ones are really nice, others, not so much.

# by Karolherbst on 02/21/07 at 13:48:01

mhhh, can it be that you have forgotten the suffix from the ZIP file???
I have downloaded it and the data file had the name "adiumy_emoticons_2_5016_3012.".

# by coerul on 02/21/07 at 14:52:36

When I submit the binary I make sure the .zip suffix is on there. It does that automatically anyway.

You just have to open it with stuffit.

# by miaaoou on 03/05/07 at 00:14:22

Amazing. Thank you!

# by Flea on 03/06/07 at 16:05:40

So cool!! Really great work!!

# by tish on 03/09/07 at 12:32:33

ur rite it does look good with notebook contact style. it's very good .can't wait for the status icons!!!!!!!;)

# by ShwebebMaStEr on 03/18/07 at 13:44:32

I love it

# by gOofytj on 03/25/07 at 13:46:37

Great work, I love it!

# by iRaychelle on 06/07/09 at 01:56:00

I love it, I wish there were status icons like this!

# by ninafan on 11/03/09 at 19:17:03

Cool! I love them... :D

I'm using the Chalk color, on a darkblue background... It's lovely!
