With so much of the early success of this blog being attributed to my massive RSS icons post, I couldn’t resist playing around with some Halloween rss icons for you. I think the jack o’ lanterns could work well, and I’ve done 2 different versions of a bat as well as just for fun. These are completely vector, done in Illustrator CS2. Again, use them as you want but don’t distribute them as your own. Include them in website designs, templates, whatever. A link back or blog entry would be nice. Anyway, here they are:
