Running this site for years has lead to many great new friends, connections and art projects. My latest one is a children’s book that I’ve been working on for almost a year. The book project looks like it may grow into something even bigger and better than I could do here so I have created a special website just for it. The new site will continue the work I hosted here but in a more up-to-date format that can better accommodate the new book as it grows too. The new site can be found at: OtterBoyd.com
When you are over on the new site please update your bookmarks to remember the new web address as this one will be phased out over time.
In the paragraphs below, for a time, I am leaving the original text for the homepage describing my aims for the artwork and photos I do. I hope this will help anyone arriving here looking for artwork or needing some help to produce images for their special project or group. To reach me with any inquiries please contact me through the OtterBoyd.com website as that is where I now see messages most quickly.
I look forward to seeing you all again over at the new site!
The collection of free original artwork, paintings, clip-art and photos hosted on this site has been created specially to assist non-profit volunteer-run boy scouting-like organizations such as: Trail Life USA, Royal Rangers, Independent Boy Scout Associations, Boys Brigade, as well as for community based youth sports leagues and activity clubs.
While this site is new some of the artwork in the collection goes back to the 1990s. Back in those days I created a lot of free clip art and graphics for Boy Scouts, hockey and baseball associations. This new site brings some of that artwork back online along with new original graphics created in more recent times.
Whenever I see a group that is truly worthwhile and working as an organization for kids supported by volunteers (rather than operating as a business for adults supported by children) then I want to contribute in any way I can!
Volunteer-run groups and individuals wanting to use artwork, clip art, photographs and graphics to promote or raise awareness about their group are welcome to ask to use images free of charge for non-commercial purposes. I’m also happy to consider doing new original artwork. Let me know what you need and I’ll see what I can do!
Fundraisers: I am always most pleased to provide or create custom artwork, graphics and photos freely for group fundraising purposes when I know that 100% of the proceeds benefits the members directly!
For commercial use (including fundraisers directing any proceeds toward staff salaries or “administration & overhead”) please contact me to discuss the proposed usage.
