Art adds distinction to a web page. Effectively used, art will
add to your page, enhancing your message rather than distracting the viewer.
Using commercial clip art for webpages is something I try to avoid.
If artwork for illustration or background, I will usually do my own
It's not that I consider myself such a great artist; I just get by.
However, it gives the pages that I design a distinct look, a discriminator
that keeps the page from looking like it was thrown together by someone
pulling clip art out of a folder.
