Grrrr... What'er YOU lookin' at? Yeah you! Petulant Pets is an icon set of angry pets and they're staring at you.

All icons are aquafied and look best in 128x128 at 32bit mode.

They live in your dock... but they don't necessarily want to be there. Petulant Pets all began with the pink elephant. He was my first attempt at an icon designed for the new 128x128 thumbnail standard in OS X.

I finished the graphic and was quite pleased with it, until I tried to squeeze it into the smaller resources (the 32x32 and 16x16 sizes that OS X still uses in Finder windows). I put that pachyderm through a variety of crops and contortions (you begin to see why he's so cranky) but I just couldn't make it sharp enough. It was too detailed for the smaller sizes.

So, the Pink One found himself relegated to the icon dustbin and a downward spiral of grouchiness.

Completly freeware for personal use.
