    Hey Everyone,

    I need some help. I'm designing a program for a local school, and I need a picture of Shakespeare for the cover. But here's the catch: I need it to be a silhouette of him. Take the following picture for example: http://jcomm.uoregon.edu/~ojea/Shakespeare.gif. That should give you an example of what it should look like. I need it to be a regular image, and not a "funny" image, like the one above. Thanks for any help!

    I presume you looked through Altavista's Images library?

    (the link I give re-directs to the Australian version of Altavista which still has the Images library intact, unlike the main Altavista portal)
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)

    Yeah, I have actually. Didn't find anything. I know something like this exists, 'cause of seen a few different ones used in various places.

    Yeah, I know But I'm looking for a sketch of his profile, not a photograph.

    Anyone?

    Thanks Westmich, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. Sorry for not being clear, but I need an outline of his profile, like the example I gave in my first post. If I don't find one though, I'll use that picture Westmich

    get any old picture of him. Outline his head, fill it with black, fill everything else with white.
