Protesting handprint with a map

A graphic to use on you next protest poster. Available as a download for only $2 from Graphic River. It's a layered photoshop file with a separate layer for each map.

I was originally going to use the hand print for an activism campaign against gender violence. The palm was an ideal spot to put a female symbol, so the idea of using the palm area as an area for a graphic was born…

Plain Brushstroked Banners with a Watercolor Texture

'Plain Brushstroked Banners with a Watercolor Texture' - this is my latest item up for sale on Graphic River. The watercolor texture was made by taking a 'print' from paint dripped on to a foamy mix of water and dishwashing liquid. I liked the outcome of the texture so I kept it, not quite knowing what to do with it… and along comes photoshop, ready to turn the ordinary into the extra ordinary. I made the brush stroked frame by customizing the presets from one of my brushes (37 Big Brushes) also for sale on Graphic River.

Here's my next work in progress, I admit that I shelved this one ages ago, but I decided to brush off the dust and finish the drawing so it can go towards a collection of the Big Five
Think I've finally finished my 'Red Rhino'! I softned the contrast on his nostrils a bit and added a few more layers.

Here's my latest addition to my Graphic River items for sale - 'Digital Freeze Landscape'. A casual snow background that's the seasonal opposite of 'Digital Oxygen'. Lotsa options for customization with the texture layer just by changing the blending mode to multiply - changes the snow scene to a night time landscape. The file also has 2 different psd layers for the snow, so it's easy to customize the snow fall.

I don't post nearly as much as I intend to. I haven't had much time for any art, been focusing much more on my digital art portfolio.

I've just had 'Digital Oxygen Landscape' approved for sale on Graphic River.
