Well, we kinda felt the time has come for the first Inspired Release. In the same time, we saw many of our readers blogs are using too generic icons for their Twitter widgets, so we came up with a brilliant idea – why not ask our favorite artists to draw a bird icon in their own style for you guys to have something fresh on your blog? We had a great response from BIG names in the illustration field and Bam! here it is: The Social Bird icon set – a free release by Inspired Magazine. Before anything else, you must follow these guys on Twitter: Frank Chimero, Jeffrey Bowman, Mills, Dyna Moe, Alex Mathers, Divya Manian, Matt Joyce, Noper, Ursu, James White, Lapin, David “Netherland”van Alphen, Jessica Gonacha, Alex Eben Meyer, Jerrod Landon Porter, Will Bryant & Chris Maier. Theeeen you could download the icon pack from the bottom of the post and pop-up some first class illustration to your blog.
