27 High Quality Paintbrush Style Illustrator Brushes Part 1

As you know, I am always looking for news ways to produce graphic design resources. Sometimes my methods involve learning new skills; other times it involves the use of new materials. Recently, I have been experimenting with ink instead of paint to produce Photoshop and Illustrator brushes. Ink is better than paint in several ways. It dries faster, it’s not as sticky, and it’s not as hard on my scanner. So today I am releasing part 1 of a 2-part illustrator brush set. Today’s set includes 27 high quality paintbrush style illustrator brushes that can be used in your designs. Enjoy!
