Terrible 90s Web Graphics (Art Explosion!)

While sorting through a cupboard of old unused software at work we came across a nearly complete collection of clip-art, fonts, photos and graphics simply titled Art Explosion.

The discs contain your normal fare of odd clip-art (which appear to mostly be scans of drawings from 1900-1950), low-resolution amateur photographs of various subjects (a post on these to come), fonts that I don’t think anyone would ever consider using and a small amount of totally radical gnarly web graphics – just what you need to make your GeoCities website really POP. Anyway, enough rambling…

This page probably will make whatever browser you are using run slow – to the point it might even stop responding.


Let’s not mess around here – the best items on these CD-ROM’s are the animated GIF’s.


Yeah these aren’t that interesting. There are hundreds of variants on the CD-ROM, so I will only share my er… favourites.
