The Easy Way to Add Bold Textures to Your Illustrations in Photoshop
Friendly Notice: If you dig this tutorials you'll probably really love the Brave the Woods Summer Tour. Brave the Woods is travelling across the US teaching live workshops. It's fun, unintimidating, and you get so much free stuff in the workshop it's practically free.
Over the past few weeks I've been working on a new brush pack with Brad Woodard of Brave the Woods.
One night when we were pulling all the random elements from the pack together (and discussing our love of cereal, the comedian Mitch Hedberg, and bug puns) Brad was trying out the brushes and showed me some sweet tricks for adding clipping masks and changing colors fast.
I was so excited by this faster way of doing this I asked him if he'd make a video I could share with you. Enjoy!

Emir Ayouni (AKA Growcase and one-third of Forefathers) was one of my first design heroes. I remember this Inappropriate Factory logo he did (see above) just blew my mind.
So when we did the Responsive Branding Training with Emir Ayouni I was thrilled when he shared how he created factories, warehouses, and other building in Adobe Illustrator.
