IF : Blur

I decided that for this week's Illustration Friday theme of "blur" I would make this pretty Mac icon ... one, because it has been a while since I made an icon and I miss all 262,144 of those pixels and two, because when I think of blurred things, I immediately think the fuzzy color circles I see at night when I am not wearing my glasses or contacts.

I started with some shapes in Illustrator and tried bringing them over as a Smart Object to Photoshop, but ended having to create native objects in PS to get the blending right. Also, if anyone knows how I can automatically align these three objects to the centers necessary to create a perfect Venn Diagram, I would love to hear from you. I got pretty close just eye-balling it, but I would prefer to be precise.

If your interested, this icon should be available for purchase from GraphicRiver soon.

**Update: You can purchase it now on GraphicRiver.
