The oldest graphics ON THE WEB!

You'll have to exuse me. This is totally self-indulgent, but in doing some research i realized that the very first site I had a hand in designing, the HotHotHot hot sauce store, is still using some of the same graphics that I hand-tuned for it more than 10 years ago, based on drawings by Yeryeong Park. This may make them the oldest continuously-used graphics on the Web, apart from the ones that are built into Apache or something. Woohoo!

Here, you can compare.

The originals:

Its nice to see something be semi-permanent in the ephemeral world of the Web.

Ha! I have fond memories of Hot!Hot!Hot! It's good to know that quality work lasts, even on the web.

Heh. Thanks. I'm flattered to think that the work is timeless, but I think there are other factors that have preserved it. It's more like an animal that's been preserved because of its isolation than one that's survived because of its fitness. But thank you.
