    These are great. Whoever thought that messy, splattery textures would be so popular? It seems that for decades, “good” design meant “clean” or “precise.”

    @Cpt. Crayon: Definitely will be adding a “Resources” link to the main menu very soon. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Be sure to thank the authors of these brushes themselves if you use them. Just as a courtesy, you know? At least for myself, I really am overjoyed when I hear that folks like what I make available on the Internet. Glad so many of you are finding these to be so useful!

    @LBrother: In my own creative work, I usually don’t like reusing the same resources over and over — so I tend to find new textures/brushes/etc, or build my own from scratch in new pieces. There are exceptions of course, and organizing some on my computer (or using presets) can really cut time down while working.

    @ferdinand: Thanks for sharing those ferdinand. Personally, the acrylic and watercolor themed brushes are some of my favorites :)

    I always love your collections. Textures, Brushes… it’s really helpful that you take them together to one page.
    One question: Do you – as designer – save your textures on your computer or do you everytime search the web for them when you need one? And when you found a good texture, do you just copy it into photoshop or do you save it?
