There are two major drawbacks of most illustrated and cartoonish clip art that keep most designers from using them on a regular basis.
These drawbacks are caused because of the issue that most clipart is in raster format (bitmap image … a file that is totally composed of tiny dots, or pixels).
One of the drawbacks of most clip art is that you cannot edit these images in Adobe Illustrator or other vector art programs such as CorelDraw. The other major drawback is that you can not resize rasterized clip art without pixelating them.
Because of these two major setbacks, many graphic designers prefer vector graphics and clip art.
That is why I have taken the time to put together this list of 50+ vector clip art sites.
