Hello and welcome to Rodman.ai! I created this site to offer free diverse clipart, something I found difficult to source as an instructional designer and learning management system administrator. I will be starting with Black clipart and then moving on to other races and multiracial clipart. 10,500+ images and counting!

New search features: Looking for backgrounds (without a foreground subject)? Put the word “Background” into your search terms! Looking for foreground subjects on a white background? Search “transparent”! (they’re not actually transparent, you’ll have to do that part yourself – for now)
Why does this matter? Diverse clipart plays an indispensable role in education by promoting inclusivity, engagement, and a broadened worldview. When educational materials include clipart that represents a wide spectrum of identities—spanning across races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, and more—learners are more likely to feel seen and represented. This visual validation can enhance a sense of belonging within the educational environment, encouraging active participation and engagement. Additionally, exposure to diverse clipart can broaden students’ perspectives, introducing them to a range of experiences beyond their own. This diversity in imagery can foster a more empathetic understanding of the world, aiding educators in teaching about different cultures, lifestyles, and experiences. Hence, diverse clipart is a powerful tool in cultivating a more inclusive, engaging, and globally conscious educational landscape. (ChatGPT4)
All of this art is available free for unlimited use (including editing, remixing and composting), for any purpose. My understanding is that pretty much only the US and Canada allow waiving of attribution – so, if you are in a country that is a signatory to the Berne Convention, you should use these images WITH attribution. Countries particularly known to be concerned about attribution include France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia and Japan, but technically could include any signatory to the Berne Convention. The UK is known to be more lax about this but is also a signatory. For more info on this, please see: Berne Convention | Wex | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute (cornell.edu). If you are in Canada and would like me to sign a form waiving attribution, please let me know.
