looking for freely licensed black and white manga drawings. anyone know a source?

context: trying to explore options for a shirt I am designing that has japanese and english text on it. I'm not much of an artist so I am trying to find something cool and non-copyright infringing that already exists. I am also looking into other things like black and white photos.

I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm trying to hunt for inspiration at the very least.

@dthompson Manga covers a lot of ground. Any particular style or genre you're looking for?

@craigmaloney really just looking for any collection at this point

@craigmaloney oh I see, I meant manga as in japanese style.

@dthompson I have sooooome black and white photography on Pixabay - - and there are loads of other users besides who have b&w photography there and possibly manga, there's a category for illustrations. I can do mandalas and can give you a CC0 one if you decide to go down a more arbitrary design route, hehe.

@welshpixie thanks for the resources! I may end up commissioning something, but this is helping me figure out what I even want in the first place.
