85 Illustrator Paint Brushes

This set of 85 Illustrator paint brushes is a remake of some brushes that I previously released on this site.  Since releasing these brushes, I’ve received quite a few emails from people who have had some difficulty opening or downloading them.  The reason for this is that they were not contained within a zip file, nor were they saved for legacy versions of Illustrator.  So instead of updating the files one by one, I decided to combine all 4 sets into one and save them back as an Illustrator brush file and then re-release them to you guys.  Enjoy!
