You have that friend. If I have him, you have him; if I'm writing this and it's being posted on the web, and you're reading it, you know the guy I'm talking about. The graphic design friend. He's a great guy. He's into anime and Macs and is always there when you need him-well, maybe not when, but he's around. See, your graphic design friend is your friend, and you're his. You don't always rate as top customer. That's why, when it comes to graphic design, you should never, never, never rule out free clipart. If you do, you're stuck on your friend's timing. (And he's always behind.)
