Clip art in the graphic arts, are pre-made images used to illustrate any medium. Most clip art today is created, distributed, and used in an electronic form. Since its inception, clip art has evolved to include a wide variety of content, file formats, illustration styles, and licensing restrictions. Clip art is generally composed exclusively of illustrations (created by hand or by computer software), and does not include stock photography.

All the Good Objects Clip Art packs include watercolor illustrations that I painted with watercolors on paper, then scanned at high resolution and edited on Photoshop to create your clear end products.

The Illustrations on the Clip Art packs are on PNG. Format. This kind of files can be used in any of the design programs. I use this format because the JPEG format does not support transparency. All the PNG files have transparent backgrounds so they can be easily added to your designs.
