I couldn't make just one icon, though. I need lots of reminders. These 5 sumarize pretty well this phase of my life.
I gave up the quit smoking idea right away, first because it's too common and obvious and second because I don't need any more reminders than the ones I already get everyday.
The "try new things / take risks" was also discarded because I found pretty much the same idea on a quick google search.
So I kept these 5.
Be grateful / Spread love
Keep learning / feed your brain
Finish what you start / Be organized / Be disciplined
Be optimistic / the glass is half full
Be resilient / Keep showing up
I'll post the mockups later on.
I made some changes in the brain, including more face features, like eyes and nose, and tried to minimize the inner tracesas much as I could. I tried to make the inner traces thinner, ut then I felt it didn't go with the rest of the bunch, so left it all the same weight. I also removed the pencil from the "finish what you start", thought it was unneeded extra information.
I couldn't find the foam board or the glue in my city. I think I have to go to some especialized art supplies store (I wish we had Michael's in my country), so the real mockups are still missing.
