Maybe CC will but up a page for graphical artists if you ask
them to do so?

It will however,  the page itself will probably be a stub until
a community forms.

CC search has been a major feature of the CC web-site for
as long as I can remember. It is linked to the button
"Find CC-licensed works" on the front page (inside
the "Explore" block).

I don't think there is plans to change this into a full meta-search
with merged searches and results.  It would be a major undertaking
because of the multimedia nature of the results pages (and a
nightmare to maintain unless the underlying services offered
stable APIs).

I don't.
