They say you should write about what you know, and I'm sure the same applies to drawing. Having spent a year in the land of the All Blacks, I thought I would explore some of the impressions of New Zealand/Aotearoa.
Some of the Icons in the set might be unfamiliar to someone not versed in Kiwi culture, but it's a rough idea of the sights and objects that stayed in my memory as a sunburnt Irishman. This is also intended more as a backpacker set than a tourist board one.
All Blacks, Alt. NZ Flag, Bach, Beehive, Buzzy Bee, Cricket, Greenstone, Jandals, Kiwi, Kiwi Fruit, L&P, Maori Flag, Marae, Moko 1, Moko 2, Mount Taranaki, Nuclear Free, NZ Flag, Peter Jackson, Rugby Ball, Sheep, Silver Fern, Skater Cap, Tomato Sauce, Tramping Boots, Truck with Dog, Whale Watching
This is an interpretation of the associations, community projects and popular services that you find clumped around the web. While by no means comprehensive, it's a first stab at what may become a larger set in the future.

As anyone who spends time in online forums can testify, a collection of personalities can be easily identified from their posting behaviour. Through extensive research ;), I've put together a small selection of the freaks and geeks that inhabit the far reaches of the Interweb. Sadly, as with everything in life, the level headed types aren't half as interesting so are not included in the set.
Lurker, Pinko Commie, Bush Baby, Troll, Moderator, Hopelessly Addicted, Clueless, The Joker, The Statistician, Guru, Mac Zealot, PC Weenie
These are Icons loosely based on the iLife suite of application from Apple Computers, but with a slightly more adult twist. It's simply an experiment in how much you can run with a theme before it grinds to a complete halt.
Home Movie, iSchmooze, iPaparazzi, Serenade, Pressing Engagement, Sneak Peek, Little Black Book, Discreet DVD, Stalker, Love Letter

As I get regular emails regarding icon usage, here are a couple of answers to common questions.
1. You may use these in your commerical/free software without charge.
2. You may use them on your site or printed material without charge.
3. All that is required is a credit on the product. "Artwork by www.afterglow.ie"
4. You may not resell these for profit or alter the artwork for profit.
