    I don't think that is a good idea at all.

    I would ONLY bring the best and most relevant 12-12 pieces.

    It is pretty much a given that EVERYONE coming into an interview was not...

    Embarrassing how? If they are not necessarily good projects in your opinion, you could try to use them to show what you have improved and what obstacles those projects helped you overcome. Another thing...

    Thanks everyone! I guess I'll take some of the same pieces that are online. I have lots of printed pieces, but some are just really embarrassing to show!

  • 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.
