Over the past years, when I find some little dumb art clip, I save them for my files. Maybe I will use them for a T shirt or Poster one day. So whats clip art? And what? There are no real books anymore on the subject since clip art are little drawings that would be “clipped” out of books chocked full of them. Ad agencies, newspapers etc would use these to build art files. This is all pre digital stuff.
So? What can you do with this clip art? Well, thats all part of the fun. You know those posters you have to do for your boat show every year? Boat show T shirts? Hell, this one writes its self.
There are some more jewels in my files, and always looking for more. It can come from almost anyplace, and as you can tell, I am extracting it from ink clots and not from the original art which would be far far better. You would need to convert these to some sort of more finished. But hopefully gives some of you show poster people at your local chapter some inspiration.
