You can leave a comment on the clipart in question, and the author will be
able to see it in their clipart manager. If they read that, that is another
story. We are working to get email functionality because author contacting
is crucial, but it might be awhile until that is implemented.

You did all the right things. As Oleg said, by default, most of the clipart
on OCAL are in the Public Domain, or under the CC0 declaration.
Two questions:

   - What clipart are you wanting to use?
   - What nationality is the shop-owner? Maybe we can google translate a
   letter (from OCAL or Gerald_G himself) to the shopkeeper, explaining a
   little about public domain?
