    special graphics needed

    Hi all,
    okay, here's the situation. Im re-designing completly my old website, which is a design firm website. im willing to make a special design for it, and i need some graphics to implement,modify it my way ( dont worry, im not stealing nothing, i know what im doing.. ). Im looking for some kind of "simple" shapes...
    i know it's not easy to understand. Im just looking for simple shapes to add to my header. Do you have MCM music channel ? well, in between the clips ( like there set-up, layout ), you will see all kind of shapes, like a "small guy" shade running, an accordeon, an old disc turning, a dog running, a piano, etc... but they are NOT photos, they just pure graphics...
    i hope u understand which kind of graphics/shapes im looking for. If yes, please tell me any links i could get them, for free if possible.
    thanks a lot for your interest and attention !

    you could always design them yourself (if i understand you correctly, it's "vector art / clip art" you're after. all you need is a reference photo, a vector tool, and patience)

    ok, failing that, do a google search for "free vector clipart" http://www.google.com/search?q=free+vector+clipart

    You might also like to take a look at:
    www.dingbatpages.com

    They have lots of font "shapes" and graphics that you might be able to use.

    Ya i'd suggest dingbats also. There are so many "specialty" types out here now.

    Good luck!

    I don't have the MCM Channel, but I do know that the Shape Tool in Photoshop has shapes that can be used (as well as a TON that can be found free on the internet).

    You can also dip into the symbolic fonts on your system, such as webdings, wingdings, symbol, etc. All you have to do is rasterize the text and then manipulate it as desired.
