Have you noticed that cute, free clip art is hard to find? I’ve decided to put my drawings to good use and turn them into mini collections of clip art you can use to make note cards or invitations or little prints for your family and friends.
The first set of clip art had a celebration theme (see it here). This new collection is extra-cutesie with bunnies and chicks and swirly writing … and just right for Easter.
I first sketched with pencil, then over with my favorite fine-tip pen (this one), erasing the pencil marks with a good eraser (like this). I then scanned the drawings and saved each one as a .png file (the process is the exact same as turning my watercolor paintings into digital artwork – shown in this tutorial).
Then I went an extra step – partially to show you what you can do with clip art + digital paper and partially because I love creating art like this adding color and pattern to individual parts of a few doodles.
The boy & girl bunnies are my faves … I want to make them into stuffed toys!
The collection of clip art (both the black & white and colorful) is yours for free. Just download the zip files, unzip and each drawing is ready to use with a transparent background.
If you’d like to make some changes on your own to the size or color, here’s a short video showing you how. I use the previous collection of celebration clip art, but the methods are the same for the new easter art as well.
So fun, right?! If you’re totally lost, hang tight. I show you all of these steps again, and in better detail and a little slower in my new graphic design course.
Registration for the next beginning graphic design class opens up on Monday April 21st (the first round sold out in less than 24 hours, so make sure you’re ready to sign up right when it opens!). Read more about the Simplified Graphic Design class here.
