Following through on my foray into oriental-inspired clip-art, I dug into my archives and came up with a few experiments I created several years ago based upon a couple of door knobs I found at an antique store. In those days, I made everything 128×128 pixels as that was the largest size usable for an icon on Mac’s OSX. Nowadays, 512×512 is the standard and so I’ve updated the old art to accommodate the new size and cleaned up the details. I’ve no idea whether these designs actually have some meaning in one or another Chinese dialects. I’d love to know but just do not have the ability to concentrate long enough to compare the characters to the hundreds of examples out there. If anyone out there can enlighten me on this, that’d be great.
In the meantime, Enjoy!
