Last week my beloved iMac stopped working for good. It's been more than a decade of a fantastic relationship, but now I have to accept the fact that it won't be with me anymore... With that in mind, I've collected  these vintage Mac icons, most (maybe all) made by the great Susan Kare in the best 80's. Curiously, you will see that many of them have remained until today with very few modifications, but others (that dot matrix printer, those faxes, those floppy disks...) have definitely passed into the History. I remember with particular displeasure the d***  Bomb, which appeared unexpectedly  when the computer crashed -too frecuently- and you then lost all the work not saved manually. Freaky old times. My favourite character still being Clarus, the dogcow (at the Z, of course). Hope you like them.

Sorry to hear that happen to you. Hopefully you have the contents backed up…

I hope that when you get a new iMac, that it would be faster and more powerful.

@BWM: Thanks, pal. My new iMac will come in a couple of weeks (I cross my fingers).

Also, some letter widths (S, a, e, n, q, s, 4, and 5) may need to be checked, as when viewed in pixel view, there is some unintended anti-aliasing on the edges

@elmoyenique - Wonderful recreation of Mac Icons / Dingbats!  :^)

Comment by Goatmeal 17th may 2023

@Goatmeal: Thank you, Maestro. It's really been relaxing to draw these glyphs with just squares... At some point I'll be adding some others that I've put on hold.

Comment by elmoyenique 17th may 2023

@elmoyenique - I also find recreating game fonts & game dingbats to be relaxing as well.  I'd bet @Patrick H. Lauke (redux) feels the same way.  :^)  Look forward to see more!
