Illustration Clip Art

I already discussed where to go for good stock photography, but not where to go for good illustration clip art. ArtVille was purchased by Getty, so you could go there, but it is better if your art doesn’t look like everyone else’s.

Here are some suggestions.

  • Illustration Works: The one has custom art, and art you won’t see anywhere else, which is what you want. You don’t want your art to look like clip art. For this page, and for other pages, I did a search for "Golf" since that is what one of my clients wanted a picture of, and the results came up with many many different stiles and colors and angles. Quite lovely.
  • Veer: I know, I know, I keep pushing Veer, but I really like the work they show, and find it suites my clients as well.
  • Havana Street: This one is when you want a retro look. Most of the illustrations are black and while and very simple, but they do have the retro look, and if that is what you client wants, then that will work.
  • WorldWideRetro: This one links you to a page of links for art. I’m not so sure this is a good way to go, but for those who are into retro this is a good resource.
  • FotoSearch: This one will get your more than photos. This will also get you other illustration collections, including Artville, Birch and Image Club. I like these, but some are old and overused.
  • Clipart: This is a subscription based service. Very inexpensive, only 7.98 for a week of unlimited downloads, but I don’t like the quality of the art shown. However, if you are on a budget, this is an excellent way to go. It is best, however, to search before just signing up, so you know that the site has what you are looking for.
