I’ve been playing with my camera and I have a bunch of High-Res textures for all of you! All of these images were taken at a friend of mine’s house, an 19th century mansion built for a Catholic Bishop, if I remember right. All the images are 2000 x 1339px @ 240dpi. Download them via Flickr by clicking on the images. You can never have too many textures, right? :)

Illustrator: The Tilde Trick

by Jay Hilgert
on December 19, 2007

BittBox Reader Jeff F tipped me off about this neat little Illy trick. It just so happens that if you hold down the “tilde” key on your keyboard, you can get a neat effect using any of Illustrator’s drawing tools. Holding down the tilde key, (the little squiggly line above the tab key, left of the number 1 on your keyboard.) while using a drawing tool will cause Illustrator to repeat the shape rapidly as you move your mouse. Examples after the jump. Thanks Jeff!
