I took over 70 of my free vectors and converted them into .psd brushes. I want feedback on how I can crsipen these up. Perhaps it is my love of vector art, but these just don’t look near as crisp. So please download and comment below on recommendations because this is my first crack at this.

I have decided to start selling some vector packs on my blog. The first will be a really cool throw back pack to the old days of crime….the mafia. The pack will be called The Family and will probably have 10 or more pieces. So look for that coming REAL soon.

So you never know when you will be inspired. Last night I saw a really cool cross at the store, so I thought, “I bet I can make a cool vector cross” and low and behold, the crosses are born! So I had so much fun doing the crosses that I think that I will release a whole pack sometime soon. Actually, I need to finish up with several packs that I have and put them up for sale. But anyways, enjoy these.

I get a lot of questions about how I attack an illustration, and basically I do the same thing that I have done since I was in first grade…. I sketch first. Most designers do, some don’t; it is up to you. But I typically find something that moves me, I shoot it, print it, sketch it, and re-sketch it, until I am happy. Then scan in and fine tune it in Illustrator. And by fine tune, I DO NOT MEAN LIVE TRACE! I mean PEN TOOL!!! I love just going for it and seeing what I can accomplish. Every time I design something there exists a certain amount of uncertainty and you have to just attack it and push yourself, and you never know what you will come up with. Here is a sample of a skull that I am working on right now. It will be VERY grungy and will probably be for a client, but you never know.

OK, so I have been insanely busy so far this week but haven’t forgot about some questions that I need to answer. A lot of you have asked if I can make a Part 2 to my Awesome Hair Tutorial and I am in the process of doing that this week. I promise that by the weekend you all will have a better idea on how to implement that hair brush stroke that you learned. Also this week I have picked up a new client that I will be discussing and showing work for as soon as I can. Last night I got to shoot a mixing and mastering session for Force Effect. If any of you like Prodigy, NIN, Underworld, or any really progressive and thought provoking electronica music, then check out Force Effect. Also very soon there will be some projects that I am a part of and I will be putting up some vectors soon as well.
So it is a busy week, and I will post soon!
