yikers!

i don't think we should assume the worst of someone when they ask for a =
visual resource like clip art. i would hate to think any of us would =
want to discourage others from participating in this fabulo-tremendous =
group by making them fearful of getting slapped on the hand verbally...

i am fascinated by clip art and other types of what could be called post =
modern icons. maybe i'm way too easily amused, but to me, analysis of =
clip art symbols is pretty interesting. you could think about what is =
needed to represent a certain idea or thing, what is necessary and what =
is superfluous to accurate communication and interpretation and why, the =
similarities and differences in clip art images for the same thing, the =
origins of clip art images (some of them are from "classic" =
artworks)...it can also be neat to distort/simplify/repeat/flip them =
(play, in other words) and see what type of images can be created. to =
me it seems there is lots of creative and learning potential here...

i mean, it's not like someone said they were going to enlarge the images =
and have students color them with cheap crayons! ;D
