  1. Is the texture on the brushes suppose to be on them or was that added afterwards? I’m not seeing it in the file but your wording makes it appear as if it should be there.

    • I don’t think it reads like the dot textures are there, if that is what you mean. It talks about the ink textures/bleeding into paper but that;’s all I can see. No ink texture has dots on it. So I presume this is something that is added later- I am pretty sure there are tutorials for this and texture files available for access all areas members too.

  2. Hey Chris, Just want to thank you in general for all your hard work and assets that you give us!

  3. Thank you for these and the other generous freebies. I am new to Illustrator and still learning so thanks also for your tutorials.
