Step 2.1: Sketching

Been working on a few thumnail sketches (they're quite literally thumbnail-sized). Some of them are pretty trickly... I'll need to come up with a way to differentiate between all the various computer-centric activities. I also feel like I have to many 'iconic' symbols and a lot fewer 'narrative' ones. Hmmm. Well, so far I've explored a little over half. I'll be working on the rest soon.

Step 2.2: More Sketching

So... I have a new job. That makes the title of this project a little out of date. But I'm still going to finish up this icon set, because... well, finishing things up is what real men do. This is a fact. Here are a few more sketches. I feel that my ideas are still a little rough, but I'm getting a sense of how it will all come together.
