In this particular case, all the content is being created from scratch. But a quick reminder for others looking to do the same thing — if you’re using the resulting pictures in a commercial setting, make sure that the content you use to create the illustrations has the appropriate licenses. Or, to be on the safe side, only use CCo licensed content such as that by Linda Kellie — and Ener Hax herself, who calls it the Enerific license.
