Creating Clip Art

As I am setting up my WebPages I like to use a lot of Clip Art images. I got some of them with my CoffeeCup program but there are specific images that I need. As I was trying to find out if I can use the Clip Art that I find on the Web, I could never be sure if they are protected with copyright laws or not. I use the images as an aide for my language lessons and I do not directly sell them but hope that I will eventually make some revenue from other things on my website. Since I could not figure this out I decided to do my own Clip Art. I bought brand new markers and started to draw. I scanned the images, turned them into GIF files, fixed them up with PhotoShop and made the backgrounds transparent. I have a ways to go yet but I have a lot of fun with it and the exact images that I need. Hurray!!!
