It's amazing, really. I get reviewer comps constantly, and I NEVER bother to look at the clip art that you can use in private and commercial projects. Why would I? The only project I currently have is this blog.
That being said, there is some amazing stuff being produced for really affordable prices. What I am affectionately referring to as a Bullywug to the left (damn D&D cartoon) is but one of 4 pieces available in the Forgotten Foes Clip Art 2 Collection - that's 4 pieces of artwork for 3 bucks.
I'll be finding use for these pieces, even if it is just to liven up a blog post or two. They should be seen and appreciated. This does of course mean I'll be starting to use these on the blog where appropriate or even not ;)
The artist for this piece and the rest of this collection is Rene Walk.
