  • I need antique art

    Does anyone know where I can find baroque or antique floral art? I want to make some vitage looking stuff but the only things I can find are mail-order only.

    Help!

    Try looking in flea markets... you might find something there that you could scan in and recreate using streamline...good luck

      You would be surprised what you could find in the wallpaper section of menards--they have HUGE catalogs that are just a treat to look at.

      Try that first and then Ill give you some more hints :P

        Beware of copyrights.

        Actual pre-1930's stuff would probably be okay but copying wallpaper patterns...rather iffy. Wallpaper can be inspirational though.

        Dover clipart books have a lot of really cool Victorian stuff. Usually royalty free depending on how much you use and what for. They may even have disks now...maybe.

          At my last job, we had a set of CDs from "Art Explosion " that had a lot of traditional and retro art clips like you are describing. I don't think this cost very much and I think it is still being sold.

            Yeah Viki, it's still being sold. They are up to 780,000 pieces now on oh, maybe 16 CD's...A lot of it is way to modern. At least in the older set I've seen recently. And those paths sure are messy in the "vector" art. Someone did a lot of nothing with Streamline set for hit or miss. Nasty.

                Changing the color mode using File >Document color mode is what I was talking about
                It does mess with color values and certainly messes with Black. If you go from an RGB file with the Black swatch...

                I think what's off balance with the Royal Bank logo is the kerning. It's all over the place, especially between the 'Y' and the 'A'.

                To the OP: Looking closer at your other logos, kerning...

                PD, thanks for the link. Will read up on SM vs TM.

                Regarding the logos -- no, I'm not opposed to the first, offsetting the "P." Curiously, I don't think it's so bad when I mock...

                Here's the thing with some clients. They find fonts. Sometimes in weird and sometimes not so savory places.

                The only reference I can find of an LT 65 medium bold is on a free font download...

                There are literally hundreds of high quality stock photo sites out there.
                As well as font sites.
                There are also lots of sites related to car wrap art that have ''cool stuff.''
