Recently I re-released a set of popular paint brush style Illustrator brushes on this site. After doing so, it didn’t take long before requests for more brushes in that style started pouring in. I love feedback from my readers so I was happy to produce more brushes in that style. So today, I am releasing a set of 33 paint brush style Illustrator brushes for you guys to use in your designs for free. I hope you enjoy them! And don’t forget, I love feedback so feel free to comment and let me know what you think about this set of 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!
I’ve been feeling a bit patriotic lately so I decided to have a bit of fun and release a set of patriotic brushes and swatches with a “stars & stripes” theme. I will be honest with you; this set isn’t all that innovative. There really aren’t very many ways to display star and stripe patterns. That’s why most political and patriotic designs look practically the same; with a few notable exceptions. I released this set because I think it can save you guys a little time the next time you have to create a patriotic design.
If you have ever tried to create arrows in Illustrator you probably know that there are a lot of ways it can be done. If you’ve ever explored some of the menus in Illustrator you probably have noticed quite a few options that allow you to create arrows rather quickly. The problem is that each option has some pros and cons. For instance, if you need a quick arrow, you can create one from scratch using basic shapes. This is pretty easy to do but if you need a lot of them it can become rather inefficient. Another way to do it is to do so by adding effects to paths. You can do this by going to Effects > Stylize > Add Arrowheads. This is a fairly decent way of adding arrowheads to lines but this too can be time-consuming and cumbersome if you are adding arrowheads to lots of lines in an illustration.
You may also have noticed a couple of art brush sets that ship with Illustrator. These work great unless you need your arrows to have corners tiles. As you may have noticed, art brushes don’t do corners that well. Pattern brushes however can. That’s why I decided to create a set of 10 arrowhead pattern brushes for Illustrator. These brushes will enable you to quickly draw arrows in Illustrator with very few draw backs. I hope you enjoy them and can use them in your designs.

Last week I was working on a design project for a website I was working on and created a nice set of water color Photoshop brushes in the process. I’ve been swamped with freelance projects lately so I decided to give this set of brushes away because I haven’t had as much time to work on freebies as I usually do.
After I created the set of Photoshop brushes, I decided to go ahead and
create another identical set of brushes for Illustrator as well.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy these sets and I look forward to seeing what
you guys make with them!
Last week I released 106 delicious water color Illustrator brushes. Today, I am releasing part two of that set. Part Two includes an additional 105 amazingly realistic-looking water color Illustrator brushes.
In my opinion Part Two looks even better that Part One. You should definitely download this set and try it out for yourself. Like Set One, this set is perfect for creating multi-colored brush strokes and could easily be used to create an artsy, hand-painted design or a children’s illustration.
Yes, I did say Illustrator brushes. This set of brushes is a real treat! 106 awesome and completely vector water color Illustrator brushes. You guys have no idea how excited I’ve been over the last couple of weeks waiting to release this set of brushes to you guys for free.
I had a lot of fun putting this set of brushes together for you guys and I was blown away as to how well they turned out. This set is perfect for creating really great multi-colored brush strokes and could easily be used to create an artsy, hand-painted design or a children’s illustration.
