Lovely....Beautiful and exactly what I was looking for:)
Some time ago I found myself being increasingly attracted to hand drawn look in digital designs. I think using mixed media – bringing paper drawings and art to digital environment is brilliant. I could not find such graphics for my projects and this is how I started to draw them myself.
The Ink Nest is a resource for Royalty-Free clip art and illustrations for your projects. Most graphics here are drawn by hand on paper with ink, then digitally colored and exported in a format suitable for print and web.
Why hand drawn images? Art is rarely perfection of line and symmetry. In fact some of the most creative artists are avoiding perfection like the plague. If you are a designer of paper goods or a web designer, after some time you may found yourself tired of all the generic look of the graphic resources out there.
My name is Sabina and I live in UK. I am a work-at-home-mom, designer and a hobby photographer.

Some questions which I am often asked:
Q: What is clip art?
A: Clip art refers to pre-made images used in wide range of design projects – like making greeting cards, web design, scrap-booking etc.
Q: What is a .png file format? Why don’t you offer .jpeg?
A: PNG is a format to store pictures in with the possibility to have a transparent background. Png can be opened with any graphic editing program just like jpegs with this difference that you can seamlessly integrate my designs into your work on ANY kind of background.
Q: What size are these images?
A: My images are really large size and they are 300dpi which means they look great in print. You will not find small fuzzy images in my collections. The size of these images will fit almost any need you have – from designing up to A4 posters to tiny cards. Usually you have to re-size them down to fit your needs.
Q: What are Photoshop brushes? Why do you include them in the package?
A:You can learn more about Photoshop brushes on my blog: theinknest.com
The brushes are essentially the same as the clip art and are provided for more easy use for those who work with Photoshop. There are no extra images included in the brushes so if you don't know how to use them don't worry that you are missing a part of the product.
Q: Can I order only the clip art without the brushes? What is the price then?
A: The brushes are a free extra to the clip art set. The price of the clip art images is the same with or without the brushes.
Q: Can I change the colors of your clip art?
Q: Can I sell your images in the form of art prints?
A: No. If you intend to sell art prints contact me for the purchase of an extended commercial license.
Q: Do you do custom work?
A: Yes! I love working on custom projects.
Web graphics start at $35 per icon, and $60 for more complex images (category graphics). Graphics for print start from $65 for a single, relatively simple, image.
I always welcome suggestions and new clip art ideas. If you don’t need the graphics urgently and you don’t require an exclusive license, you can send me clip art suggestions. I will relase them some time in the future.
Q: Why is your custom work more expensive that the premade clip art?
A: I often get the question why a single image of my custom graphics starts from $60, when a premade clip art set of several graphics is $8.
My premade clip art sets can be resold more than once. The actual price of the clip art set is at the end much higher than $8 when resold many times. A custom work is sold only once and the pricing covers my time to make the drawings. Making these drawings is not easy and it is a long process. I consider my pricing for custom work more than fair.
