Susan Kare pixel art now available to be on your home and office walls

Do you know the name Susan Kare? You most likely know her creative work. The early Macs had icons that she created. The famous finger, arrow, sand timer, clock, trashcan and more. Later, as computers moved to color screens, so do the artwork. By today’s standards, the artwork is very pixelated, but it’s a good reminder how we saw what we were intended to see with very low resolution screens.

Now, you can bring the classic art to the walls of your home or office. WALLS 360 is offering prints of many of Susan’s art bits in a variety of sizes. They are printed on material that has a sticky back, allowing the art to be placed on a wall, then removed later without damage to the wall or paint. WALLS 360 has long offered many other art and poster prints. Below is a small sampling of the available Susan Kare bits.

iPhone icon sticky pads

Having a hard time getting your notes off your iPhone to share? We saw this over on ‘The Fancy’. You get several pads of sticky notes that resemble the memorable iPhone icons. Just write your note on one and stick it… a bit more fun than having yellow stickies all around our monitors.

If you have yet to look into ‘The Fancy’, it’s a Pinterest like service where people post images they find. Difference being that many of the images are linked off to products to buy.

My iBend iPhone stands

Sure, no sooner than I post up a quick way to make your own iPhone/iPod Touch stand… I find this iBend thing. They run from 5 to 8 bucks, two in a package. While they are super thin and the bending tension is what holds their shape and device… the outside diameter when flat means you wont be carrying this in the same pocket as you ‘Business Card’ stand. But… cool and fun just the same.
