The 10 Best Vintage Affinity Brushes

Mama always said, “work smarter, not harder,” and these ten best Affinity Designer Brushes from RetroSupply will help you do just that.

We took our passion for retro-style art, illustrations, and ephemera, broke them down, blew them up, and translated them into digital brushes new and experienced illustrators love to use. Our Affinity Textures, bundles, and brushes don’t just save you time; they save you hassle, headache, and hand cramping too. And yes, we did it all for you!

So without further ado, our ten best Affinity designer brushes!
