A few weeks ago, I bought a really helpful book containing a visual history of graphic styles. I really love it. And really love styles and ornaments of frames and borders used in print of the 1890s – 1940s period.
I always wanted to make a collection of pattern brushes but I hadn’t had patience. Good pattern brush needs time. Have you ever imagine how difficult is making of pixel perfect hand-drawn patterns?
All these tiny details. You need to test it hundreds of times. Every little gap causes imperfection.
