As promised when I released the Hi-Res Fabric Texture Brushes here are the source files used to make them. The pack contains 11 fabric textures and all of them are 2500px (wide side). As much as I love Photoshop Brushes I love free textures more. They give you more freedom to tweak and alter. Before saying anything stupid I’ll just wish you a lot fun with the textures. As always you are free to use them in personal as well as commercial projects.
Pablo Alfieri, born in ’82 in Buenos Aires, is an amazing graphic designer and illustrator. His work reminds me sometimes of Pete Harrison (aeiko). I really enjoyed flicking through his portfolio entitled Playful, even though the navigation could be a bit more organic. I especially liked the poster mock-ups. It’s a new take on the whole “I-hold-the-poster-with-both-hands” presentation. You’ll see what I mean.

Linn Olofsdotter is an insanely talented illustrator from Sweden who’s now working in Brazil. She got a tutorial in the August issue of Computer Arts Magazine which should be available soon on their website. If you can’t wait try to get your hands on a copy. It’s well worth it! Linn Olofsdotter combines hand drawn elements with beautiful colour schemes and awesome textures. I really wish I had her talent. This is a premiere for fudgegraphics. Linn is the first female artist to be featured on fudgegraphics, but I hope there’ll be more to come. Below is a selection of her work. More inspiration from her massive portfolio.
If you’re anything like me you’ll be collecting high resolution brushes like crazy. That’s why I’ve put together a new set of Photoshop brushes for you. There are a total of 11 brushes in the collection and they are the largest possible: all of them are a stunning 2500 px. There’s no higher resolution possible than that. For once it wasn’t messy to produce the brushes. It was challenging at times though when I tried to scan a pillow triple the size of the machine. I really hope that you like the brush set.

Whenever I go into London City I have to go into Urban Outfitters. It is by far my favourite clothing shop. As always I had to make a choice: which t-shirts to buy and which to leave for a later day. That’s when I decided to write a post about the great tees you can get from Urban Outfitters. Seriously, if you got the chance to visit one of their stores then do it. Apart from the great clothes they’ve got funny accessories and even sell Lomo cameras. So these are the t-shirts I’m particularly fond of. Which one do you like best?
I just discovered this great music video by Supergrass for a song called Bad Blood. I didn’t even know the song although I got a couple of their albums. It’s hard to explain why this video is so awesome. Have a look and find out for yourself.
With temperature rising to 26 ºC (in London) and above there’s no better time to get in the mood for summer. Who knows how long it will last. Therefore I put together a collection of the best summer wallpapers for all those who have to sit in front of a computer, but still want to feel the heat. No sunblock needed.
