I had the pleasure of working on the new app icon for Textmate 2. I think all my favorite icon projects have been nature related :D

cant wait to see the full version :)
Fantastic icon. Fits in perfectly next to Coda and Acorn in my dock!
Ugh. You're not even human. Lol
(ie This. Is. Awesome. )
I should have known it was you. I didn't even look at the artist name when I clicked to view it. Nice work David.
It has to be you! That's so beautiful... Great!
But I'm curious, why a flower? Is there any metaphor behind it?
Oh. I thought that was a placeholder until there’s a real icon.
Uhm. But then, I also expected split views from TextMate 2.
(not that the icon is bad or anything, it very nicely done)
I have to say, this gorgeous icon is pretty much the only thing tempting me away from Sublime Text. Amazing job.
Just saw 1024px version. Incredible.
It's even more awesome in high res http://cl.ly/Cam1. Glorious detail!
Beautiful! Colors are great and details are great! Great work :)
Hm. As an icon, it's great. Memorable, with fantastic details, and stands out from others.
Also, I don't know if it was you, but filetype icons are also much better and sharper.
However, I, as Samo K., also thought that it is just a really nice placeholder.
What is the metaphor behind this?
And aren't there enough nature-inspired text editor icons for Mac OS X? (Coda's leaf, Smultron's strawberry)
It will take time for me to get used to this.
David, the art is beautiful. I just have no idea how it connects to the app (just like Coda). If you wouldn't mind explaining, I'd like to hear the reasons behind the icon.
Nectar that brings results!
Stellar job. It looks actually even better in the dock, which is obviously great.

Back in November 2004 when Textmate was new and had an ugly, ugly icon, I did some simple research. I placed all the icons of current OS X editors around a wheel and concluded that Textmate should either have a cyan or pink/purple icon, with a recommendation for the purple end of things.
That recommendation was taken up, and I'm glad to see the colours carried through to the beautiful new icon for Textmate 2.
A very small contribution on my part, but as Textmate is a tool I use to earn my living, it's one I'm fond of.

Technically and visually impressive, but when I downloaded the beta I though it was just temporally for being beta :)
Excellent work David.
I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who is a bit confused by the connection. Maybe this is supposed to be a flower that blooms once a decade? Then I could see the connection to Textmate!
The icon is great. The app is great. But they just don't match at all. Yes, I thought it was a temporary placeholder icon too.
Fantastic work on the icon, but I'm not sure I get it. The flower just doesn't make sense for this app.
I'm another that thought the icon was temporary.
Brilliant execution! However — like many others — I don't get the connection. I greatly prefer the existing icon to this one.
