counterglow is a personal icon community showcasing LiveJournal icons made by gegenschein.
I make userpics, friends-only banners, wallpaper, and other stuff. I also co-moderate geekyicons and the_iconspiracy with the talented hermintage. All of my icons (and other stuff) are organized on my website, siren.org.
If you were curious, the word "counterglow" is the English translation of the word "gegenschein," which is a German word as well as an astronomy term.

I keep my awards neatly organized here on my website. If you like one of my icons and are interested in nominating me for an award, I would be very honored. If you decide to nominate one of my icons, please comment or email me to let me know so I can keep track.
Many talented people on the web create wonderful Photoshop brushes that make icon-making much more fun and exciting. The list of people whose brushes that I sometimes use (other than my own, of course) is simply exhaustive!

My name is Karen Ziemkowski. I'm 23 years old, graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Telecommunication, am married to ziemkowski, and I'm mommy to a puppy named Maya. I've been doing website design for a long time, but only recently got into making LiveJournal icons in late 2003. I hope you enjoy viewing and using them!
