Recently, the open clip art library’s biggest contributor of artwork,JohnnyAutomatic reached his 500th clipart upload on the new site.

At the time of writing, JohnnyAutomatic had uploaded 519 pieces of clipart. (view the stats page). An example of JohnnyAutomatic’s work (the Toy Robot) can be seen to the left.

The majority of JohnnyAutomatic’s Uploads are taken from external archives of public domain clipart (like the US Patents Image Archive). He manually searches through these vast online archives, converts them to SVG and tweaks them sometimes to make them more usable.

If you are interested in helping the open clip art library by uploading images from external sources, there is a page on the wiki that lists some places to start, and some places where we have already started this process.
