Fall Leaves - High Res Photoshop Brush Set

Here is a set of 10 Photoshop brushes that I made. They are free for use on any projects, though you may not sell, redistribute or host them. They are high resolution and were created in Adobe Photoshop version CS3. They were tested in CS3 and CS2, but may not work in earlier versions of Photoshop. Here is a preview of what they look like:Also, I made a color palette from the fall colors in our backyard that is also in the .zip file.The .zip file contains the .abr brushes file and the .aco color swatches file. Load these to their respective folders in your Presets folder. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.

Free Font - Sewer Rat

I have created an original font and I'm proud to release it here. This is the first font I have designed so let me know if you have any problems with it. Please send me any feedback you may have.

This version only includes a basic set of all caps A-Z and 0-9. This font is fairly detailed in it's texture, but would work well for high resolution or large work.

I could see this typeface used for grunge, punk, rock, skateboard and other designs along that line. It would also work well as a Halloween font - as it is October...

It is a free font so you may use it in anything, even in designs you sell. You just cannot redistribute this font, or host it on a server.

The font is hosted on my website so click here to download it. Or right click and select 'save as'.

Obama 08 Desktop Wallpaper

Here is an Obama poster I put together. I haven't done many desktop wallpapers, this one is sized at 1280 x 1024 so it at least works for my screen. Hope it works for yours.

Pins and Needles - Portland Mercury

I did this illustration for a news article in the Portland Mercury. It was a fairly simple concept, so I had some fun with the execution of it. You can read the article on their website here.

I never got WAY into painting, but I've been feeling an urge lately to get more into it. This was done in oil paint on a wood panel. I did some color adjustments and text in Photoshop. For the most part it turned out like I wanted, but I had some trouble controlling the brush/paint. Some research on technique should help future paintings.
