FREE VINTAGE CLIP ART: The Elegance of the Warthog

My title is a play on "The Elegance of the Hedgehog", a novel by the French novelist and professor of philosophy Muriel Barbery -- good stuff I tell you, good stuff...

After a long week packed with errands, meetings, play dates, birthday & farewell parties, the SITS Back2Blogging challenge, and culminating in last night's Jonas Brothers concert (Note to Joe Jonas ~ You are adorable, but unless you are the second-coming of Freddie Mercury, please refrain from wearing that itty bitty black tank top), I'm feeling much more like a Warthog than an elegant little Hedgehog.

So, I'm takin' it easy with this Sunday evening post. My posts have been heavy on the recipe side lately, so I've decided to mix-it-up a bit with some free clipart. Enjoy! As always, you are free to download these pics and use them for non-commercial purposes. If you create something really FAB with them, please feel free to share it with me here ( There may even be a little Rook No. 17 featurette in it for YOU!

  1. very cool clipart!

  2. Wow, these are yours?! Impressive!

  3. The elegance of a warthog sounds like the title of a poem! I like it.

  4. Hi Jenn! After the 7 day vacation, then another week spent moving, I'm finally back into blogging!

    I'm curious . . . how did you transform your art into clip art? Is it a program I have to learn? Ugh. Please tell me it's something really, really simple.

    Love yours, btw :)

  5. Ah, a warthog. As I'm sitting here battling a cold and sinus infection, I think a warthog might sum up how I feel exactly!

  6. It's all wonderful! I'm truly envious of your artistic talents. I've been trying to teach myself to draw (halfheartedly) for nearly four years to illustrate a children's book of poems I've written. I'm hopeless, so the book project is stalled... omg, enuf about me-- you did great-- thanks for the clip art!

  7. Oooh-- and p.s., wasn't "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" just an enthralling book? I so loved it!
