There are a lot of questions I have about clip art. A lot of them pertaining to the "artist" who made them. Do they even want credit for this work? Do they hate their job as clip artists? I would throw myself off a cliff before I had a job creating clip art.
I think clip art is the perfect example of the flaws of Communism. Everyone has access to clip art as long as they have access to microsoft word or even google. (google specifically searches for clip art if you ask it to... which is sad because that implies that there is an actual demand for clip art...) All of clip art is free and you don't need to credit the creator. And yet all clip art is crappy. Without actual devoted artists and a demand for higher quality all we will have is generic horse shit.
The reason I'm on such a rage against clipart is because I found my backpack from 3rd grade... which included my clipart endowed paper as well as about a billion handouts, all of which were coated in a copious amount of clip art illustrations.
With teachers I think its acceptable for them to clip art since they aren't dealing with adults. One time, though, I caught my older brother layout out a spreadsheet with a bar graph clipart for his job. I smacked him in the mouth and relayed it out for him with an appropriate aesthetic.
I think the only thing worse than clip art is the massive amount of Jesus GIFs that come with every chain mail I get from my great grandmother. Again I can't blame her though. The fact that she can email is astounding... even if she is still running Windows 2000... God I'm a nerd.
So in conclusion, clip art sucks and I hate it. Its great if you are appealing to anyone under the age of 12 or I.Q. of 80 but otherwise I think it should be abolished.
