the icon of icons. i recently ran across some articles on the “mother of the mac trash can,” susan kare, a graphic artist that designed so many of the original mac icons and typefaces. they’re so simple, so pixelated, yet so memorable, effective, and witty! remember these?

now her work, based of out sf, includes those clever little facebook icons posted all over your and your friends’ walls; those cute little chumbys; and other graphic work for software and websites. WOW!
