Talk:Symbols, cartoons and animations to represent Knowledge Management concepts

Does anyone have any links or resources they could share for examples or ideas about symbols/cartoons/animations that represent abstract ideas such as:
- different perspectives (like the elephant from different sides?)
- group discussion
- international discussions
- climate change
Trying not to be country or region specific, any advice would be great (the project is to make an animation around participatory media, indigenous media).

I very much like the idea of representing abstract concepts in symbols and cartoons.
Usually I find good ones in Google or I sketch them myself.
I hope this is in tune with what you need.

The guidelines below from The Rapid eLearning Blog might come in useful for those looking for simple artwork. See also my site for some more.

Excellent resource indeed!
A _very_ nice library of royalty- free images can be found Most of them are available also as vectorial images, in .svg format, ready to be used with the wonderful inkscape. I strongly recommend it for the artistically-inclined... and even to those who are not (inkscape can convert bmp to vectorial images, thus you can easily create svg from pictures)
