This week, Access All Areas members have a new set of brushes to download for Adobe Illustrator, courtesy of Jeremy Child from The Artifex Forge. These brushes allow you to create graffiti inspired art, without the risk of a criminal record! They have been carefully vectorized from real spray can art to allow you to produce realistically sprayed lines with Illustrator’s brush and pen tools. 27 spray paint stroke brushes are included along with 6 bonus splatter brushes that can be used to add extra detail and texturing.
The Artifex Forge AKA Jeremy Child supplies original illustrative design resources for Illustrator and Photoshop. In Latin, Artifex means ‘an artist, builder or maker of things’ or ‘ingenious and artistic’, which together with the idea of a forge as a workshop really sums up what he does – the creation of practical, useful and beautiful design and illustration tools (and ‘art effects’)! Check out his store or download a set of his brushes for free here.
Spray Paint Illustrator Brushes for Members
This set of spray paint brushes includes a total of 33 super realistic graffiti marks, compatible with Adobe Illustrator versions CS1 to CC. As all the brushes are taken from genuine, on-the-street, painted material they capture the way that spray paint splatters and pools in a way that no completely digital process can realistically recreate. Tablet users will be pleased to know these brushes also work with pressure sensitivity, which works with Illustrator versions CS5+.
