    This is the one m searching for. Thanks !!

  8. mao November 23, 2007 at 7:02 am #

    @francisco The best free program to deal with vectors is Inkscape but it does not handle eps. I will export them to .svg so inkskape users could use them. In the mean time you can try to use and tool eps2svg here

    Hi Mao,

    Thank you for these great graphics! I took buildings from a few of your cities and rejoined them to create a fictional city for the cover of my novel which will be published in September.

    Here’s the link to the cover if you’d like to see it:

    I have attributed you in the acknowledgments section in the back of my book.

    Thanks again!

    Hello!

    I am the Clearance Coordinator for an upcoming ABC TV series pilot called “Zero Hour” starring Anthony Edwards. I am contacting you because we would like to use one of the vector files we have found on this site as a background set dressing element for one of our sets.

    As ABC has very strict guidelines about copyright, I am wondering if you would possibly sign a release stating that you are the copyright holder of the image and that you would allow us to use it for the purposes described above?

    As we start to shoot on Mar 17th your earliest reply would greatly be appreciated.

    Thanks for your help!
