Here's why these are the best stippling brushes for Illustrator

  • Works with a mouse, tablet, or iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
  • Pressure sensitivity gives you 100% control (great for getting into small areas).
  • Seamless stippling textures so you don't have to worry about weird seams.
  • Created using bristol board and micron pens scanned in at 600 DPI.
  • Tons of variations based on stippling, pointillism, dot art, and dot tattoos.
  • Includes stippling brushes for edges, transitions, and filling areas.
  • Easily change the color of your brushes.
  • Designed for easy layering to create the exact effect you want.


Adobe CC or Adobe CS6

Drunk Sailor is a set of art, scatter and pattern brushes made exclusively for Adobe Illustrator. Loading them is quick and easy (and we've included a simple installation guide).

iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

I've been playing with these brushes almost exclusively with my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and it works like a dream. The brushes are pressure sensitive and it speeds up my workflow. I use screen sharing software like Astropad (Standard) or Duet connected to my iMac via Bluetooth.

Wacom Tablet

Any type of Wacom tablet you currently use with Illustrator will work as well. Note: it won't magically make a 20 year old Wacom tablet work if it didn't work for other stuff ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Right Brush Set at a Reasonable Price!

    As a graphic designer I’m a long time Adobe Illustrator user primarily for creating logos, but I’m fairly new to using brushes and actually illustrating. After searching high and low on the internet for some quality shading patterns and strokes I settled on the Drunk Sailor | Vector Stippling Brushes from Retro Supply and I have been very happy with the different looks I have been able to achieve in my initial illustration. I have seen other brush and shading packages I could buy but I was only disappointed that what I had to buy was an annual subscription and I wasn’t interested in dropping hundreds of dollars for something I would only use on occasion. Fortunately RetroSupply had what I needed for a reasonable price!

    They're cool! I wish for 30 bucks they came with more options like a color palette or textures.

    I'm having so much fun...

    I may never do any paying work this month, trying all the different ways to use these brushes. I love these!
