For anyone out there trying to decide wether or not to start a design blog, here is a perfect example of some of the good things that can come your way. BittBox was recently chosen to be featured as a resource in Computer Arts Magazine Issue #135. The people at Computer Arts thought that my Illustrator Brushes for making swooshes, swirls, and curls, were neat and wanted to share them with their readers. I was contacted via email and happily agreed.

Free Hi-Res Watercolor Photoshop Brushes

I am happy to announce BittBox’s first set of Photoshop Brushes (Free). I’m constantly going back and forth between Illustrator and Photoshop in my projects, and I’m starting to pretty much make everything from scratch. I often have trouble finding brushes that are big enough for what I’m doing, so I just made my own. The smallest Brush in this set is 1989px! I was limited by CS2 to 2500 pixels, so that is as big as they get. The set contains 18 brushes. Download below:

Fun with Illustrator’s Blend Tool

Ever since I read N.Design Studio’s tutorial on how to make abstract lines easily in Illustrator, I’ve been playing around with Illustrator’s Blend Tool to see what I could use it for other than abstract lines. I wanted to show you some of the (really easy) possibilities of this tool, so I put together a small tutorial and I’m going to show you a lot of examples of the kinds of shapes and effects that the blend tool is capable of.
