Chinese Ornamental Hardware

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!

Birth of a Blog

Posted by: • Date:

Welcome to my Blog! For the past 5 years I’ve been experimenting with the best ways to share the huge library of icons and graphics that I’ve created, but the sites I had found to be the “best” to post on have gone on hiatus or perhaps have been abandoned entirely (ResExcellence, MacMonkies). “Scrapblog” came closest to my liking as far as ease of creation of the graphics on my pages but it isn’t very searchable and can be slow for the viewer. So, I’ve decided to give WordPress a whirl, starting out with one of their free templates just to get my content on line but over the next few weeks this blog will be gradually eased in to one of my own original skins that I’m presenting trying to hand code with the jQuery library. I hope you’ll check back often as the new look progresses and the content expands as “IconDoIt – The Blog” promises to be a very different and interesting place to visit!
