More or less, hundreds of thousands of clip art options exist and are available to users all over the world.  Users can download clip art from the internet.  The most common sources of these downloadable clip art are Microsoft and other users who upload their own clip art for downloading.  Other users buy their clip art from computer shops that sell compilations of hundreds of clip art placed in storage devices such as CDs and DVDs.  For the gifted few, they create clip art of their own for either personal use or maybe for selling and usage of other users.
