The Artifex Forge

Jeremy Child supplies original illustrative design resources for Illustrator, Photoshop Affinity Designer and Procreate. 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 free products here.
