18 Scatter Brushes

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 30/03/2015

I was experimenting with scanned scribbles in Illustrator, and this resulted in a new collection brushes, this time these are scatter brushes.
These can be used to add some texture in a flat background, like a sky or a sea.

The brushes are made for illustration work, they have a pencil, handmade feeling. The brushes are great to use for strokes in elements in illustrations. In the set are 18 vector Scatter Brushes and 5 illustrations in PNG with the brushes applied.

Stitches, patterns and brushes

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 15/05/2014

Lately i have been working on stitches for fashion design, patterns for summer clothing and pencil style illustrations. I have created a bunch of brush and pattern sets in Illustrator.
I made a little shop on Creative Market, it’s a super friendly community of people sharing their creative ideas in products for low prices.
In case you are looking for a unique brush, action, pattern, label, picture, illustration, font, style, template or anything in particular for your creative production, the answer is probably on this market.
I created a short summary of the products i sell on Creative Market, i’m in the middle of building my little shop, so come back regularly to discover more ...

The history of Adobe Illustrator

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 14/05/2014

Back in time: the first time i created a logo (sort of) on a Mac with Adobe Illustrator was late in the nineties in a friend's studio. It was my first experience with Illustrator and since then it has captured me till today in my daily work. My friend had her own studio at that time and I was eager to learn how she made all these beautiful stuff so i asked her to introduce me to the basics of drawing on a computer. It took me some time to learn these drawing skills and i am still finding new ways to accomplish certain drawing tasks but it quickly became a tool that i use on a daily basis. In that period of time, i used Freehand and learned most of vector drawing in that tool, later on i switched to Illustrator. I was watching these wonderful short movieclips about the history of Illustrator and want to share them with you - i particularly like the story about the logo and the Botticelli "The Birth of Venus" painting in the Chapter 2.
