Get a new pack of grungy grimy brushes each week (four packs in total). A new pack is added every Thursday. But grab it fast – there's only 47 packs available!
The Garage Grime Vector Brushes are a set of four packs, each with 15 unapologetically gritty Illustrator brushes (including some no-stretch vector brushes) that will make your work look as though it was drawn on paper.
So we dug around in the grimiest, most rugged place we know: our garages. And it was there that we found 65-year-old old wax crayons, oil stains, grease drips and everything we need to make this vector brush pack.
Inspired by a pack of 1950s wax oil crayons we found just sitting in a garage – hence the name – these brushes recreate the rough, unfiltered sketches made by commercial artists in the mid 20th century, and will add that vital human touch to your designs and illustrations.
This was my first time buying a brush subscription pack and I'm glad I did. The brushes are easy to install and start using immediately. For me, these brushes make illustrator feel more organic. Thanks a lot. Can't wait for my next three packs!
Every week for the next 4 weeks you'll receive 15 new vector brushes (total of 60). Each pack will be unique and different, but they will all be garage grime inspired.
One of the packs will come with a limited set of bonus no-stretch versions of some of the brushes. That means no matter how long or short you make the stroke it won't look distorted.
The no-stretch brushes will be in addition to the 15 you get. For example, in the first pack (The Wax & Oil Vector Brush Pack) you'll get 7 no-stretch brushes in addition to the 15 standard Wax & Oil Brushes.
Each pack comes with an inspiring and beautifully designed brush reference guide. This makes it easy to see what each brush looks like. Plus, each reference guide includes the history behind the set.
We want you enjoy these brushes right away, so we've made easy to follow instructions with pictures. That mean's less time worrying about installation and more time creating!
Get 19th Century American Wood Cut Type Effects Instantly (Innovative Photoshop Action)
In the early 19th century breakthroughs in printing technology transformed print forms away from hand lettered script styles and into industrial, hard edged blocks of type.
For over a century print companies like Hamilton Manufacturing, Empire Wood Type Co., American Wood Type Mfg Co. and Eastern Brass & Wood Type created beautiful type for mass consumption. A huge variety of gothic, antique and slab fonts were used to create gorgeous advertisements, notices, posters and more.
In the 1920s wood type product began to decline due to faster due to offset printing technology. But wood type still lives on through a handful of printers that still practice this tradition.
How It Works
American Wood Type is directly inspired by this history and manufactures. Using common woods and inks we've done our best to recreate these print effects digitally using textures, patterns and a powerful Photoshop action.
American Wood Type allows you to achieve these effects quickly on all but the largest Photoshop canvases. No Smart PSDs. Just one powerful action that lets you choose the textures, colors, edges, and intensity of your wood type effects.
Want to take American Wood Type for a test run? Download the sample version here. It only contains 3 of the effects and is for personal use only. But it's fun to use and you'll get a good idea how the product works!
Let's face it. It's basically impossible to find good ink textures for your work. You can search all over the web for brushes and end up wasting hours (and still have no good tools to show for it).
I'll let you in on a little secret (and this is exactly why they're so hard to find)...
Most of the people making these brushes are getting other people's free resources (and poorly made low resolution ones at that) and creating their own brushes or textures from them.
Plus, the original brushes and textures weren't even made from real ink textures in the first place!
The result is a disappointing set of tools that make it seem impossible to get these effects.
I've always wanted a pack like this (and always been majorly disappointed and the products on the market).
So while on sabbatical in Florence, Italy I discovered a little art shop on a cobblestone side street. I couldn't resist going in (especially when I imagined that guys like Michelangelo had probably walked down these same streets).
Inside I found a little shop packed from floor to ceiling with paint, ink, brushes, rollers and paper. I decided that I wanted to take a little piece of my journey home with me (in the form of some amazing ink textures).
So I bought a bunch of ink, rollers, brushes and paper and went back to my apartment for the weekend to make the best ink pack that I could.

We made our new line of Essential texture packs to give you highly specific textures, brushes, and other resources, at a great price.
Our flagship pack is the Concrete Essential Texture Pack. To make the textures we grabbed our handy Canon 50D and Sigma 13-35mm lens and hit the streets.
We photographed concrete textures from old walls in downtown Portland, sidewalks in new developments, and garage concrete textures from our own RetroSupply studio. Then we picked the best 10 textures and made them in every file format you'll ever need.
