A teaser maybe ?

Lots of people where complaining when this icon-set was shown so Mason is drawing a new set.

I think that these are quite nice though.

I think it's great that he didn't get discouraged with the comments about his icon set. Most comments were valid complaints about contrast. I eagerly look forward to seeing what he's been working on since then.

I think I'll replace the default ones with these when I get back to my µA1, as I think they look great.

[edit]
As for the abandone thing: .

I've just replaced the default-icons with this set and I think that it looks
quite refreshing.

What I miss though are a plain blue drawer and a MUI-drawer. A plain blue is
what I miss most though.

That's good to hear.

This:

"All the Things that could have been..."

. . . sounded ominous.

Ok thanks for your clarification

I don't have anithing against the choice to create an official icon set based on the "old glow icons" but they must be better

I like these icons, my favorite icon style after Ken's Icons. Amiga taste.

Am impatiently (what else) for the official Mason icon set.

Unfortunately I can hardly see what they look like from this picture (it's too small) and since I don't have my Amiga atm I'm forced to look with explorer.

Will download these when my machine comes home again.

Thank you Mason for this and everything else.

But it still is Mason who is doing the official icon set right ?
When you read the homepage it can be interpreted as he got cut out.

No rumours please!

I just found this old icon set on my harddisk and decided to release it.
Think it is better to have it public than rotten on the disk.

BTW If anybody would like to continue the work on the this set please contact me. I have much more stuff in this style on my harddisk.

I "really" wish you had posted this about two months ago!
