Then Eurynome, Ocean's fair daughter,
bore to Zeus the three Graces, all fair-cheeked,
Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and shapely Thalia;
their alluring eyes glance from under their brows,
and from their eyelids drips desire that unstrings the limbs."

Q: What is this?
A: THIS is an icon journal. Specifically, the icon journal of carissa_. Not only are there icons, but there are...*gasp* headers and Friends Only banners, and lots of other graphics suitable for YOUR lj!
Q:Who do you make graphics of?
A: Lots of people! I'm not specifically catered to one type of icon...ism (?), but I do make a lot of Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, The Killers, so if you truly LOATHE any of those people, this might not be the best place for you.
Q: What does 'Charis' mean?
A: (adapted from Mythography) Well in Greek mythology, there are 3 Graces (also known as the Charites). The graces were personifications of grace and charm. Their name comes from the greek word charis (cariV), which literally means, grace. I came across the myth web surfing for my latin class one day...so that's basically it. (If you were hoping for something astounding, sorry for dissapointing you.)
Q: What graphics program do you use?
A: I use Paint Shop Pro 8, and occasionally, Animation Shop 3. I dont use anything else...so I can't really help with anything else. I'm not too good at explaining things either, so I don't know if you would particularly want my help. *shrugs*
