100×100 pixel icon textures were the first type of abstract art I tried. This set is cut from my recent art share, The 80s Threw Up. I added some paper texture to these for more depth.
I made icon textures for years before realizing that I did it as a form of meditation or therapy. My process is/was to take a larger artwork and crop it into uniform colored sets like this. I have way more than I’ll ever use, and I’m sorry that the 100×100 avatar/icon seems to be a dying art. I’ve decided to post these anyway because I’m using my “LJ” techniques to build a new style.
