The last post focused on Anonymous Clip Art submissions, for this Clip Art of the Week, let’s feature the new work of Open Clip Art Library contributor, Hrum, particularly Red Flower which highlights the current theme at Open Clip Art Library — spring!
Other great selections are the vector traced and tweaked, bottle below, and the celtic ornament which is useful for generating cards and letterhead. Also, if you visit Hrum’s artist page you can find more ornaments and borders which anyone may use freely for making cards, or a border for a letter.
And more recently, Hrum is creating photorealistic images like this trashcan.
Regardless, there is much more that Hrum is submitting. Please head over, register at Open Clip Art Library, and leave some reviews on the work that Hrum and others are doing at Open Clip Art Library!
One of the solutions to our constant need for developers, is that instead of importing our old collection of clip art algorithmically, on Open Clip Art Library, librarians such as Johnny Automatic, Chovynz, Darth Gimp and others have been helping to clean, manually upload, and tag files for the refreshed Open Clip Art Library.
For this week, I want to feature their work on uploading public domain clip arts from the old system such as these AIGA standard images like this heliport:
If your clip art is uploaded as the anonymous user on Open Clip Art Library, please do contact the Anonymous author to get the clipart added to your account on the new Open Clip Art Library engine. For this week, please do applaud all those who are helping upload old cliparts to the anonymous account to help move us towards our goal of 12,000 clip art uploads this month!
UPDATE: As pointed out, praise Papapishu who has contributed so much to these efforts!
When we released Open Clip Art Library 0.19 last week, the amazing importance of getting back on track with monthly releases cannot be undervalued. As such, we hit a goal of 10,000 pieces of clip art uploaded to our new system. For April we are shooting to get 12,000 total pieces. Right now on April 10, we have 10,540 pieces!
And, for the month of April we challenged the community to upload images related to spring. Mokush hit this one on the head with the lovely sunflower. Please use it freely in your compositions, on labels, on stationary and anywhere you see fit.
Please help us as well grow the project to 12,000 pieces, all which will be included in the upcoming 0.20 Open Clip Art Library packaged release, news written about, and publicized at the upcoming Libre Graphics Meeting in Montreal.
