After designing a red awareness ribbon, I asked myself "Why stop at just one color?" "No reason at all," I answered, so I didn't.

Just 4(D) Fun

Gaston by Leo Fink creates bright, shiny designs. It's a bit like maneuvering the crane of a carnival game into snagging elusive toys, except that this time the prizes are these playful icons.

Feeling tribal? Think Ink! I like the look of tribal tattoos. They are primal, bold, a little wild… just like this set of icons. Of course, Ink is easier to move around your Mac than your skin, so tattoo your desktop today!

My namesake and six of his brothers are all five years old this year. For each, I designed a gift graphic of a specially-chosen Mayan glyph. Now, their birthday gifts make a fine set of icons (with the boys' gleeful consent, of course).

Houses that barely vary in style, sport neutral "colors" and identical mailboxes are creepy. Here, have some diversity! Based on styles found in America, the only common features of these houses are the dimensions of their doorways.

Few sights cheer me like hot air balloons drifting across the sky. It must take skill and experience, but they look so free, untroubled, and colorful! Until I can soar aloft, I'll just scatter balloons across my desktop. May your digital skies be as fair and balloon filled.

A friend sent a graphic… pink, squirmy, and glistening. Vaguely disturbing, but intriguing. I asked how he'd made it and ended up designing my own that don't quite look like real objects (I hope). Fun!

These were once graphic scraps that didn't fit a design but were still a bit nifty, like the promise of a fantastic bloom or untouched pigment daubed on an artist's palette. Now they're some of both. Ta-dah!

I am still happily puttering with heraldry- inspired designs. Charges—objects depicted on shields—are certainly iconworthy by themselves. Here are six, glowing and gleaming in six colors each. Which do you like best?
