I'd be willing to kick in a bit for that, if it could include some
low-resolution icons, including monochrome - I'm already having to draw
my own icons and I'm not very good at it.
I do know a couple of good graphic artists (including the one who made
this spiffy APRS poster:

specialize in pixel art, which is probably what you want for icons this
